    Aye, definitely seems to be coming across quite Roman, especially with the citadel. I wonder how intentional that was.

    Very much intentionaly in my opinion. As above so below, or as below so above. I think that Ridley
    want to make a comparison of human fall showing us the fall of our superiors, a race that predate humans.
    Thats what Milton kidna did with his Satan and his host of fallen angels. Remember what Ridley spoke about Romans
    discussing the meaning of Prometheus.
    Engineer city and the shrine is  in a way influenced by some of Bocklin's paintings. He liked to use cypresses in his paintings and there are a lot of cypresses around the Engineer city. A lot of Roman pillars, central building is of course some sort of Pantheon (very simillar to Roman Pantheon with a golden cupola around the oculus; a lot of symbolism only in that). The architecture of the city is in a way an amalgamation of Roman, Greek and Mesopotamian influences.


    There is maybe the inluence of artis Thomas Cole, especially his  Course of Empire series.

    Regarding the great shrine or cathedral as Wayne called that building, it also
    reminded me of Buddhist complex Sanchi. The Great Stupa at Sanchi is the oldest stone structure in India.
    Indian and ancient Indian (Aryan) influences are still strong. I will remind you that they used Proto-Indo-European
    language and Sanskrit to create Engineer language. PIE is the common ancestry of Sanskrit, Latin, and Greek.

    Scified member (Ingeniero) has provided a good analysis of some background images of the recent International Trailer, and thought should share it here for discussion..

    So could be possible this is their homeworld, and not like how it was on LV-223.

    The temple columns are visible in the background behind Daniels on Paradise.

    why are there no animals in prometheus? makes no sense.....similar to the rest of the movies.

    The rest of the movies had no animals (pets aside) because they were set on either "The Shitiest Moon" (426), "The Shitiest Planet" (161) or "The Shitiest Spaceship" (USMRV118). Prometheus was set on "The Slightly Less Shitty" moon (223), and it was made clear in the film that it couldn't support lifeforms that were killed by CO2 (eg. all lifeforms).

    Alien Covenant is set on a "This Is Just Like Earth" planet. Huge forests, precipitation, waterfalls; if you have an earth-like forest, you have an earth-like ecosystem. Nothing evolves in a vacuum. So where did the animals go? Were they eaten by the aliens? Appropriated by the spores?

    i'm curious on why there would need to be animals to make sense to an alien movie.

    Alien movie or not, the new setting begs the question; what happened to the animals? The birds? Were they eaten, made into hosts..or did they get goo on them and vanish into the realm of lazy science fiction?

    Well, they are either Engineers or creations of theirs who have either been annihilated by David dropping the black goo on them or they've been fried by lightning!

    So apologies if I missed anything, n00b here, but that shot of the field of corpses surrounding a huge temple complex was super intriguing...

    Does anybody have any insight/credible theories on that?

    why are there no animals? Already this film makes no sense...

    lol.

    why are there no animals in prometheus? makes no sense.
    why are there no animals in LV-426 in alien? makes no sense
    why are there no animals in LV-426 in aliens? makes no sense.
    why are there no animals in alien resurection? makes no sense.

    i'm curious on why there would need to be animals to make sense to an alien movie. i dont think the presense of animals makes any single difference.
    Because this planet is, or at least was, a lot more like earth. However, the animals were probably killed by the the black goo or whatever killed the engineers too.

    but i'd like to know why that would make a movie make sense or not though

    i dont really think this franchise should house a variety of animals, really, as inevitably that means we are going to supposedly see alien animals,
    and that's where it goes wrong fast. i would hate to see the franchise get destroyed by corny lame-ass alien animals that make no sense, like the star wars universe and the star trek universe especially since abrams stepped in.
    worse, you'll get 'predators' creatures in it.

    please, let alien animals out of the picture, if you'd ask me.

    edit reason: perhaps looked hostile, wasnt meant to.also expanded my point.

    Now THIS trailer is awesome! And love the alien design, love it, closest to the original since Aliens
    I think it looks closer to the alien 3 and resurrection ones but i like it.


    No no no, not resurection, at all. The headshape is that of the original, or aliens too (since it was the same mold), the penis shaped back of the head is finally back since Alien 3 as oppose to the pointy spoon end that the aliens had since Resurrection. LOVE IT The ribs also are closer to the original rather than the more human like ribs the alien had from the Runner up

    edit: its also the first alien since Aliens that has the two-bulged shape of the head, if you look from the top. The original, and Aliens (since theyre the same mold) aliens didnt have a single oblong shape of the head, it was as if the skull area connected to the oblong shape, almost as if theyre two separate pieces. All the aliens from Alien 3 had just one unbroken shape

    The goo is still a lame movie gimmick.

    Like zombies.
    Cheap movie makeup

    Or making the Cylons look human.  Cheap and all for "easy reader" story telling.

    The mystery is totally lost now.
    Maybe so but I can almost see it being a real weapon of mass destruction and that is where Ridley is coming from with it. It could also be something more innate to the universe itself or even sentient. However there is no "science fiction" reason  to dismiss it as a gimmick. That's like calling "kill it with fire" a lame movie gimmick. Also you can't fault zombies for being nothing more than people it make-up... not every movie needs a gigantic malfunctioning fake shark.

    Quick question, may have already been discussed:

    At 1:38 one of the female crew member is running from something - sounds and looks like lots of little...things? Am I totally wrong? Does any one know a bit more / have any other ideas as to whats going on?

    Cheers

    Could be the motion blur but this doesn't look like the traditional facehugger.



    And that ain't Cudrup!


    I'm probably wrong though.

    This...


    Those hundreds of humans/aliens/engineers weren't laid to waste in situ by goo. Goo doesn't do that. Supersonic clouds of volcanic ash do that, but volcanic eruptions tend to destroy trees (and wheat) as well as animals. Whoever these beings were they were smitten/struck down Old Testament style. "Philistines versus the Ark of the Covenant" style.

    I will never forget this brilliantly put question and its curious reply when Valaquen interviewed Ian Whyte in 2013:

    Quote
    Valaquen: The Engineer is a mysterious being. We don’t know where he came from, and we have only the thinnest understanding of his mission. When you play such a creature do you formulate a backstory and attitude in your head? Who, as far as you’re concerned, is the Engineer?

    Ian Whyte: Someone on the crew, (I forget exactly who) described them absolutely perfectly as “Truck drivers of the apocalypse!” They serve a higher power/intelligence, unnamed and unknown.

    Of course it is entirely possible that the "someone on the crew" was full of shit, but it has long been speculated, both before and after the release of Prometheus, that the engineers weren't the end game. The abject failure of the engineers behaviour in Prometheus to portray superior (or even basic) intelligence was a major beef for many people. For far less people (possibly just me) the fact that the engineer pilot was diminutive when compared to the original pilot just raised the discord.

    Note that that image doesn't show a lone temple on a dead moon; it shows a cultured city on a rich and living planet. And everything is dead. Goo changes things. Aliens eat or appropriate things. Only god murders with impunity.

    I hope your correct that there is something MUCH bigger is at play here.  The whole idea of David wiping out the planet with goo leaves a lot to be desired as far as I'm concerned.

    What I don't get, is that in Prometheus the black goo on LV-223 mutates everything it makes contact with.

    Who says it was the goo that killed them? Maybe it was what the goo made that killed everything.
    Well, the leaks make it sound like
    Spoiler (click to show/hide)
    But what 426Buddy says makes a lot more sense.

    Most of those who complained about space jockeys'*revelation as humanoids in Prometheus.....

    ... Are going to miss the same 'Engineers' a lot.

    Infact, a glimpse of a live Engineer with his biomechanical suit in the trailer would have made me enough excited than a rehashed,  revamped Xeno/Neo-morph attacking people.
