    That's assuming it was the engineer's idea(s) to begin with, which Prometheus didn't address.

    Yeah you're right. This is what we could assume by watching it. It doesn't matter if it's true or not. It was Prometheus' major concept and it's displayed on that poster.
    That's the one I have set as my desktop wallpaper, best poster of the year.

    But the idea or theme of the poster isn't present in Prometheus. We don't know why the engineers created humans or if it was even their idea to begin with. It's one of the issues with the film. If it were true that it wasn't the engineers idea to create humans, that poster would be even more incongruous. The film pretends to be smart while that poster actually is smart.

    Poster cannot answer question: why they created us? For that reason it's vague and intriguing. We have to wait and see Covenant and its sequels.

    Sure it could, not that it wants or needs to. Prometheus didn't need to answer "why" either, but if it did we would have more insight into the matter than we do now. Some of the film's aspects are so vague or ambiguous they become practically meaningless, and needing a sequel to inject sense into it doesn't make Prometheus any less of a failure on those fronts.

    Really cool poster!!!! ive got it as my desktop screen i know some have said it looks to fan art but i really like it reguardless

    ...except the Alien is one of the most recognized creatures in film. Virtually no one who might be remotely interested is going to see Alien and think "oh, just another monster film."

    And Xenomorphine is right. While that Prometheus poster may be artistically inspired and/or interesting to look at, it doesn't actually resonate with the film itself or have a thematic connection. Even the font used for the lettering is off (that is a different matter though.)

    It has huge thematic connection. We can see an Engineer's face and human foetus inside his head/mind. It's a simple symbolism and a statement that we, homo sapiens come from them. That we, humans are their (Engineers') idea.

    You're right about the font. It could have been different but it's not a big deal. Font can be easily changed.

    They didn't really create humans using their minds or imagination though. They simply copied themselves/spread their DNA. I know what you mean though and thought the same when I saw it.

    Any idea has its begging inside our head. Mind if you prefer. By using their minds they created (?) that liquid (we can see it n the prologue) to dissolve their DNA and create new life (sometimes to create, one must first destroy). Therefore they created us by using their minds.

    Its fits for me as well, it connects that the Engineers are our creators and there is some nice Xeno stuff going on inside him as well.

    Yeah, there is Xeno's skull above human foetus.

    Also this franchise has a history with vague artistic posters.

    Imagine people in 1979 staring at this poster and thinking: what the hell?

    Do you care about ordinary people?

    I'm not even sure what you're getting at with this comment.

    You previously posted that: I'm not at all sure what kind of a thematic message an ordinary person would be meant to take away from that. Then I asked: do you care about ordinary people (regarding your statement)?

    It's an art. It must be provoking, intriguing and compelling. And it's way better than this ... thing.

    Artistically, yes. I've already said it's very visually impressive. But it still has no logical message which is being conveyed. Most people who stopped to look at it in a cinema foyer would be compelled to look at it, but they'd have no idea what it's trying to say about the film's story.

    I would get intrigued by it. It's just different from what we can see in cinemas today. Some people who wouldn't have an idea what it's trying to say about the film itself might try to google it and decide to see it. Cinema-goers like new stuff. When people, who are not Alien maniacs, look at this cheap cliche designed poster with Daniels and Xenomorph might think: eh ... another boring monster slasher. Let's skip it.

    Ouch. If this was sitting in a gamestop window with alien isolation 2 printed on it...it might work. I don't mean to be critical. I'm sure someone worked hard on it. But this feels more like fan art than a studio poster; Daniels looks slightly like Claude Rains.

    I've seen tons of studio made posters that look this bad or worse, bad photoshop is very common these days. I agree it does look bad but i'm honestly surprised by how surprised the reaction to the quality of it has been. Especially when almost every film coming out of hollywood has at least one terrible poster.

    As much excellent artistic merit as that baby-inside-Engineer's-head poster has, I'm not at all sure what kind of a thematic message an ordinary person would be meant to take away from that.

    Regarding Predator, I find this version one of the best:

    https://i.imgur.com/Kf0T0NY.jpg

    Maybe it's the way Dutch looks a little feminised, but that makes it look like an advert for a 1980s music video. :)

    Also a strange choice to have the Hueys firing bullets from radio antennas...

    Love the way the dreadlocks turn into skinned cadavers hanging upside-down, though. That part was inspired.

    Just a quick comparison. Those are non-promotional posters. Real art.

    I love artwork-style posters, but they haven't been a thing in the industry since the late 80s.

    Look at the awesome artwork posters they used to do for each and every James Bond movie. Now it's just a photo of Daniel Craig walking towards camera pasted onto assorted backgrounds.

    Fans are the only people who make proper artwork posters any more.
  18. whiterabbit
    Well if that is the Korean poster, it's about what one would expect. At least it has the interesting take of AI vs Alien... although I'm fairly certain they're on the same damn team.

    Where's the polish poster btw? Those usually rock. In a f**ked up sort of way.
  19. RocketRaccoon
    I don't like it. AT ALL. I thought I'd be the sole naysayer so I wasn't going to post a comment but then I read through the thread. I think my opinion is safe.  ;D

    I have that Terminator poster on my PC. Really cool.

    More from Christopher Shy:

    Now when I mentioned Christopher Shy, let me post two posters by similar
    artist - Karl Fitzgerald

    Speaking about posters with Arnie ...

    I really like these two... dark, moody, painterly.

    Same artist?

    Indeed. Christopher Shy, he is one of the greatest poster painters (of so called dark versions).
