20th Century Fox has released yet another new image depicting one of the transport vehicles that we will be seeing in Prometheus. The RT01 transport comes with an integrated bio-nomic telecom unit, reinforced touch screen blast-shield, carbon matter sensors, titanium-alloy coated armor, split axle suspension and more. Check the full diagram below:

Additionally, several new interviews went live today. First is an interview with actor Guy Pearce about his role in Prometheus. It reveals some details about production and whether or not he thinks Prometheus is a prequel to Alien: “It’s not a huge role, so I came on board in the middle of their shoot, and was just there for about a month in the middle, I guess“. You can read the rest of the interview here. Second is a brief interview with Ridley Scott and the Prometheus cast. Make sure to watch it after the cut.

    Why are they parked at Shepperton, when Prometheus was filmed at Pinewood? :o


    Doesn't Scott own the Shepperton studios?

    Haven't Shepperton and Pinewood merged?


    Really??

    The Rank Group owned the studio until 1995, when they sold Pinewood to a group led by Michael Grade and Ivan Dunleavy. The purchase of Shepperton Studios from a consortium headed by Ridley and Tony Scott gave rise to The Pinewood Studios Group with both UK and international interests including Shepperton Studios, Teddington Studios, Pinewood Toronto Studios, Pinewood Indomina Studios, Pinewood Studio Berlin and Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios, combining three studios steeped in heritage and prestige as well as new and modern state-of-the-art purpose built facilities.



    Ahhhh... thanks for that!

    Sorry...still living in the 80's in that regard...
  2. The RT01 Transport is a great nod to the APC from Aliens...except the RT01 looks so much cooler.  This sort of reminds me of my father's old Volkswagen Transporter from the 1970's.  The older designs back then were so much better than the bland, uninspiring models that came out in later even though you'd expect the designs in general to get better with time.  I guess the general rule that "classic cars always look better than the new stuff" applies in the universe that Alien exists in as well.  I'm glad Ridley is applying real world sentiments about that sort of stuff in Prometheus...it makes it all feel so much more real.

  7. Can't wait to see it get totaled!

    Bonus points if they "blow a trans-axle".

    Edit-- also these labels are hilarious. "Bio-nomic telecom unit"? "Satellite-linked maintenance"? What does that even MEAN? ???
  8. And that will fill the one remaining space on the Project Prometheus site and that's it...
    As much as I like all the stuff they're doing with news sites etc. I feel kinda left out. Project Prometheus/Weyland Investors was supposed to be an ARG/viral campaign, and it had potential, but now they're just closing it down with those three images. :(
