    Damn. This is how I imagined the movie back in 09 when Ridley said he was doing Underwater research and the ALIEN HARVEST script came out.
    I imagined a really swampy world, not unlike Dagobah, a swampland with ruins and weird buildings. And as our explorers got deeper into it they'd gradually realise that the swamp was morphing with strange Giger bone architecture and suddenly they'd be in a massive Giger labyrinth.

    UNF!

    Imagine all these designs on screen. I hope they will use them in the sequel

    the last four I assume previously unseen photos from that copy of SFX that I shared photos with you from earlier. As before change the s400 in the URL to s1600 to get the maximum sized image available

    The SJ chair creating eggs?
    The derelict ship primarily, producing eggs is what I mean, like Giger implied once upon a time. I said the chair because I can't think on any other device aboard that might produce them somehow.

    Please note that I'm talking only about the old derelict ship when I suggest that, not this new juggernaut thing, with Its chair next to a console, Its statues at the entrance, cryosleep chambers, the digital tech being now surprisingly present in their tech (when Jockeys were supposed to have transcended the digital era and being immersed in some sort of ultra-advanced combination of tech and flesh)., etc  :D

    eeerrmm....

    I always wondered why the Jockey's suit and Giger's alien body are almost..., identical?, lol, did they engineer their own suits to gain life at some point or something?

    Also, to have discovered that the chair was not used to create the aliens and to produce eggs but only to pilot the ship has been a little bit..., dissapointing. But well, I supposed Giger's twisted (and superior to anything seen in Prometheus) vision of the things and original concept of everything related to "Alien" was too much for these retards behind Prometheus to handle, or even, to fully understand and then portray to a movie.

    What a dissapointment of a movie, seriously. And in the end when they leave the planet onboard another Derelict ship..., rofltrololol to that

    Great interview with costume Designer Janty Yates.

    Quote
    Well, it is a prequel, but Nostromo (the spacecraft featured in Alien) was a space tank. It was a functional space tank, and they were functional engineers, so that was a functional space suit. Basically, it was issued with the spacecraft; it was literally intended to be used to maintain space stations and vehicles. But this spaceship for Prometheus was custom-built by Weyland Industries, so the spacesuits were custom-built with it. The idea that we went with was all of your body functions would be integral to the suit.

    They're from 158 and they had Prometheus stuff in 157 as well

    159 just seems to be the Michael Jackson issue, I don't know how they suddenly switch everything over to Michael Jackson like that and have it as the same magazine, that was the thing that confused me.


    Here's the address and phonenumber https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-nv6lS1TNzNM/UD9RC6_WyyI/AAAAAAAADMs/LdZQuj-Xmqg/s400/IMG_0001.jpg

    I've just found their e-mail address. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bOof4Tt4puM/UD9NOoYlC7I/AAAAAAAADKo/zpzEF6lP15I/s200/sfxemail.jpg

    and the website cesar-editions.com is still being built so it says on the webpage




    another image, this time of the hammerpede

    I am sold!
    Do you know where I can order my issue?
    I have trouble finding an official site for the mag.

    I think the new one has just come out of that magazine and they don't seem to have a back issue department anymore for some reason let alone an official site :(

    So I suppose people will be scouring for old copies as ebay.fr and priceminister.com

    Lars I've sent you a link  in your messages box to what I thought were two issues sold together, but I was completely wrong.
    Thanks anyways! I will look around and see if I can find something.
    These images are just from issue 158 or also from 159?

    To see larger versions of the images modify the s value in the URL to something like s1600 because you're likely to get the image as big as it comes as the uploaded file

    Oh my dear lord god of the heavens, I shall forever thank you for zooming in and uploading these all.  :o

    It's interesting that they seemed to use a lot of arthropods as reference.

    Sigh, all of these designs are so cool, someone REALLY dropped the ball on this movie. It should have been R rated from the start, instead we got a PG-13 movie with an impressive c-section.

  16. MrSpaceJockey
    Much agreed.  I wanna see all of those space jockey sketches nailed on that wall in full size and fully analyzed ASAP.  A lot of them actually echo the original jockey a lot more accurately - longer heads, thinner arms...now that's what I'm talking about.

    The animatronic within the baby trilo may be the closest that squid has ever gone to being Gigery.

    I agree.

    Hate is a strong word. But I do struggle to understand what Ridley was thinking. I'd love to hear how he arrived at his choices in his own words so I can have a little film maker perspective.

    And I really do hope there is an extended cut down the road. I keep thinking of Kingdom of Heaven when I saw it in the theater and thought ... meh ... then saw the extended cut and was pretty much blown away by how much better it actually was.

     CGI visualisation by Martin Rezard (Le Cinema S.F.X, June 2012)

    Remind you of anything?
    http://www.prometheus-movie.com/media/concept001.jpg

    Reminded me of the same thing. I'm kind of sad the more alien looking Fifield mutant wasn't used or  more progression of the transformation wasn't alluded to in the film.

    It always reminded me of an adult version of this proto-hugger. The head looks almost the same to me.
