Prometheus IMAX Trailer Released

A new IMAX 3D trailer for Prometheus has just found its way online which includes plenty of new footage. It just over a minute long so we can still expect the full length trailer released later today. As well as that, a new website has also gone live, Project Prometheus.

There doesn’t appear to be anything on there at the moment aside from this hidden page but the Weyland Industries website has updated with a Corporate Timeline. It’s a very extensive timeline offering a lot of backstory for the Prometheus story and the Alien story.

You can download a medium quality copy of the trailer here.

    I noticed that the SJ we see isn't an actual walking around suit. The ribs and parts of the arms are just retention/protection devices that clasp ontop of whatever is in the chair. IT kind of reminds me of the technology in the original stargate movie, where it just unravels from around the person entirely.

    I have a feeling there is a human sitting in that chair and the "suit" conformed around him or her. The chair is obviously for a bigger creature/person than whoever is in it.

    In fact, whoever is in this chair has pretty scrawny looking arms because there more room in the "Suit" hole than the arm takes up, and it reminds me of a kid putting on an adult's suit or something. Sure, it fits, but its wayyy too big for whoever it was made for.

    Also, the neck seems a little small as well..

    Just guessing, but David might find himself in an allegiance conflict or perhaps he has discovered 'something' from his analyses and Vickers wants to make damn sure it stays between the two of them...

    ...
    Looks like she's shoving David. I wonder why--hopefully she doesn't set him off like Ripley did to Ash when she shoved him against a wall. ;D

    And hopefully David doesn't have a porno mag handy to roll up. :laugh:
    Perhaps she was unaware Weyland was in his private freezer and shes pissed David didn't say something? Who knows.. could be one of a thousand possible reason lol. NEED THIS MOVIE NOW.

    This alleges to be 720, and it does look a bit higher in resolution...
    I can't wait for the 1080 of this to be released. Despite the wretched dubstep music and editing, this is easily my favorite trailer of the three new ones. Some really tantalizing shots in it!

    Thanks :) only copy I could find as well.

    [irk] it's definately from a Dub sub-genre, but it's not Dubstep... *grumble* *grumble* - it definately doesn't fit the mood of the movie though, thats for certain. I don't like it in the trailer.

    Anyway! :-X
    Rewatching it just then I noticed a scene I didn't before: Vickers tossing someone against an interior wall of the Prometheus. Gave to grab that stream and get a screenshot when I can (blast being at work!).

    I actually LOVE the editing and the music cues for the IMAX trailer. It's like it's been cut to the rhythm of a heart beat. It's beautiful.

    Does anyone know where I can find a 1080p downloadable version of the IMAX Trailer?

    I meant that to humans 12 feet is certainly tall, but not Jockey tall. The guy who supposed plays this 'Jockey' could almost take it on in a fist fight (and lose, terribly). The original Jockey has 12 foot arms!
    You do realize the size of the Jockey in the original was wildly inconsistent, right? In its intro shot, it's huge because the astronauts were played by kids. Then, when it switches back to the original actors, the Jockey decreases almost by half in size. Scott has tons of leeway to work with in terms of the Jockey size. It just needs to be suitably "big."

    I agree the size can be tweaked but it's too much IMO. 24+ feet to 12 feet is a massive cut. The arms of the Jockey sculpture where nearly twice as long as an adult human is tall.

    Bah, maybe its a baby Jockey. That's not as dumb as it sounds. I'm going with that. ;D

    I am with Cvalda on this one...

    Ridley never thought he'd be making a prequel while he was making the first alien movie, so he just played around with the jockey size.

    Now that he's basing a whole new franchise on that jockey, he is confronted with inconsitency in many ways.

    If the size of the jockey is already a problem for you, because it doesn't go with what you know from the alien franchise, then brace yourself... I'm sure this movie will have to walk across some more things that the original series built up.

    The astronauts suit may be a far stretch from what we saw in the alien movie, but it still looks like the Frickin jockey so I'm happy.

    I asked for something new and Ridley is delivering, so I really can't complain at this point. The only thing that would kill me, is bad CGI and practical effects on the jockey. The one second segment of the seatbelts coming off the jockey really made me cringe since it looked so damn fake...

    If so, we should all feel let down. IMO it's a cynical story arc that will seriously undermine the original film. And giant it ain't. I have an uncle that is nearly as tall. I am amazed at how readily Alien fans will accept such a crap-tastic idea.

    I will hold this LINE! ;D
    You've got an uncle who's over ten feet tall?

    I did feel let down at first, until I realized how stupid it would be for the Space Jockey to actually just be a giant alien, lumbering around. If properly executed, the Jockey mythology in Prometheus could be amazing--however long a shot that is.

    Anyway, the Jockey doesn't even need to be in the film at all IMO. The Engineers can be something else and be totally awesome. I just hope they are different things.

    What's all of this 'I'm betting blue guy isn't the jockey?' business? He starts the ship up and it looks like that's him being armored up while in the chair. NOTHING proves that he isn't the jockey. I would bet good money that he IS the Jockey. End of story. Why so much dialogue otherwise? Where is the evidence pointing to it being something else? ;) :) :) hehe
    Because of the mythological elements in the story. I'm pretty confident that the blue guy plays the part of 'Prometheus', having stolen fire (their tech) from Zeus (The SJ's) who then send an eagle (the slithering creature) to peck out his (the human's who brought him there) liver.

    ...Wait. So you think that the humans have the tall blue bald guy with them from the word go?
    I think the humans steal their tech once they get there, which causes the guy look like that.

    Also let's clear up this 'beginning of time' buisness. Just because it was called that doesn't mean the shot of the waterfalls and infected arm are literally happening at the beginning of time. Ridley probably meant that metaphorically, as in maybe it's taking place as that world is beginning to be terraformed by the SJ's.

    Someone get the password for the page already! :P
    Very interested to know where this viral piece is going. Wondering if it is to do with investors, and the "Module B" that is coming soon on the Weyland Industries site.

    Is there a 1080p copy of the IMAX trailer floating about that is still available?
  14. ChrisPachi
    Not comparable IMO. The new look of the Derelict and the human tech is a design choice, the new 'Jockey' is a contradiction of what the original implied - to me that being a giant alien, suit or no.
    The blue giant is, well, giant. He towers over Kate Dickie before he gets to her in the IMAX trailer. It's not an alien anymore, and if you still believe it is, you're going to be seriously let down come June.

    Dont get it either.
    It's right in our faces.
    WE get it because we know all about this universe, and we think that Ridley would not spoil the beans.
    BUT we are not the main target, the average moviegoers is and he has no f**king clue who is that guy, or whats going on. I think you're gonna be in a world of hurt if you start imagining stuff that could make the humanoid Space jokeys ok (like another real space jockey race). The Engineers shown in the archeological artefact are humanoid giant.
    Thats it! Now there will be subtle details about them either design wise or life cycle wise that will make them more than just "tall blue bald guys in suits".
    This concept serves a purpose, a theme and works way much better than all the show off cgi overdone weird looking intelligent alien creatures i've seen for years.
    They will look and interact with humans as real characters not as special effects.
    Dunno... It works for me and i like the design.

    I'm just thinking of other possible ideas. We don't know anything until the movie comes out. Yeah, I'm sure the big tall guy is the Jockey, but hell why not let our imaginations have some fun.  :)
  18. ChrisPachi
    Because it is dumb. Really dumb. Scott isn't dumb, and he respects his own source material. Evidence? Full sized chair, half sized 'Jockey'. As I said, dumb. ;)
    He respects his own source material so much he changed the Derelict walls to make them look like mass-produced plastic mechanical parts instead of biomechanical flesh-y material? ;) The Jockey is most likely the blue guy. The suits are obviously made for people of his size, and he's there at the "beginning of time" sequence in the trailer.

    And I for one actually think the blue guy that we see will end up actually being Guy Pearce. I am almost 1000% sure he goes on this mission with him. Because even Scott has said so, though it is kind of cryptic, in him and Damon's Q and A. He said he is in the movie and that this movie takes place in the late 2080's to 90's and that he is definitely an older man. I think he is searching for an answer to reverse his aging or something. In turn his carefully placed Synth, David, who the crew doesnt know is a Synth, will help him in fulfilling this task. In the process they have to experiment on something and that in turn is this crew you have that came along.

    I for one do not think we will see an "original" Jockey for instance, but that we might be looking at how the jockey race continues on with their own evolutions. Maybe that is exactly how for hundreds of thousands of years they have kept going, by just taking over another species with some of their own DNA.

    Just a thought but I think I am right about Pearce. And even though Pearce said he is only in the movie a minute, I think he might have been referring to the fact you only see him in the movie for a minute like we see him in any movie and that is without makeup and the such, we already know that the tall blue guy/ jockey is being played by the tall stunt guy, probably has little if any dialogue so Pearce essentially wont be in the movie at that point and only as the crew knowing he has become something....

    ...No. That's definiately not what's implied. Especially now that we see Shaw looking at the face in AWE, and that face is most definately related to the tall guy.

    What is this obsession with the Jockey being some kind of an infection thing?

    I'd bet good money the tall man IS The Jockey. He goes into the suit and pilots the ship. He, or one of his kind, is seen at the dawn of time.

    My bet is the Jockey unleashes the creatures on the crew when he's disturbed, the crew awaken them when tampering with the suit/corpses, or trigger an automated system when entering the ampule room.

    I don't think there's any major twist in terms of the Jockey. I know a lot of folks want to believe we're going to see some Lovecraftian Cthulu Old one thing that comes out of the dark, but I honestly believe the large humanoid who is seen  raising the control console, and on board Prometheus in the trailers is The Jockey/Engineer.

    As far as Weyland goes, I could see David maybe having such a fascination with what they encounter on behalf of Weyland, and perhaps be compelled to expose some of the crew to it on purpose also by Weyland's command. (Very fitting with what took place with Ash).

    I guess my point is don't push so hard for what you expect or want to see. Let the unexpected and the different be okay. A lot of people seem to have already set themselves up to be disappointed, not because what Prometheus is going to do is necessarily bad, but because it's different from what people expected.
  26. echobbase79
    Has anybody thought that Shaw's boyfriend or husband could be the space jockey after getting infected? Isn't he the one that's looking at his eye in the mirror as some sort of change is occurring?

    @Deuterium

    I assumed you meant the bit in the 2:31 full trailler where Noomi is kneeling in prayer?

    @1:55 the voice (Janek?) shouts
    "Cut it off him...cut it off"

    Apologies if you are referring to a different section.

    You ain't showing that shit in a trailer. If the Jockeys are in this film, it isn't the Blue dude.

    My point exactly,even though i feel like i've seen to much,i'm also pretty sure i haven't if you know what i mean.

    They have to show a certain amount to get everyone excited (they did good it seems),but at the same time not show all the good bits.

    The funniest thing after all the recent new images is we still don't know shit  :laugh:
