Maybe the ALIEN space jockey, was also infected at the same moment but managed to flee the planet in the Derelict and
crashed on LV426.
It's been confirmed that the derelict in Alien landed. It did not crash.
Yep my bad.
And i reported it first after i heard it from Scott at the press screening in Paris.
Bad habits die hard.
I think four. Like the sarcophgis in the Orrery room.
3 will die from chestbursting creatures, the 4th one is the survivor the human crew will meet.
As for the origin of the disaster on LV423, all leads to xeno infestation.
If LV423 is just a waystation for Engineers, i wonder if their homeworld and race still exist.
I'd be suprised to see anything from the original film in this one... including chest-bursters!
Never said we would actually see those chest bursters.
But the holes in the chest of the sarcophagis leaves no doubt about the type of creatures that killed those 3 Engineers.
Like i said month ago, my take on the Derelict is that its pilot and cargo are very very old.
That we will not witness the birth of the alien in PROMETHEUS because they have been a bioweapon already in use for centuries by the Engineers. But there is that leak wich has been pretty accurate from say one that says the human will confront massive alien like creatures in the 3rd act.
Won't be suprised that they end up being those born from Engineers.
Either the same ones or their spawn (the snakes?).
It seems clear to me now that the're will be at least two forms of infections/creature, from the content of the urns and from that snake.
persian civilisation inspiration from Arthur Max? No offence to Persia or human civilization, but come on, could an alien species not be inspired by something human. That was what was so good about Giger, his stuff is bio organic looking it looks completely non-human, completely alien, the floors in the original Derelict didn't even look like anything humanoid was made to walk on them
I don't remember the exact phrase, Max was kinda just saying that they drew inspiration from many stuff.
This is just one of the visual inspiration he quoted.
Doubt it will be exactly persian like. It has been make clear that the Engineers inspired humans so maybe the idea is that the Persian and other cultures were inspired by them.
Don't think it will be very important in the end.
From day one, the risk of adressing Space Jockeys was that it was going to be rationalized.
What we think, what should be, or how it looked like don't really matter now Scott has HIS take on the material so its take it or leave now.
I'm taking it.
GUTALIN was hired to for that, his Gigerian but yet more mechanical style was perfect for the look they wanted.
Seriously?! Gutalin? So damn happy to hear this.
The art of this guy is really terrific
They have some of his work published in the Prometheus edition of L'écran Fantastique Hors-Série. They let you look through the magazine at low resolution here.
Usually i pass on l'ecran fantastique because they love everything.
Wil check it out if it's intrerresting and not just press kit stuff.
I'm digging the Engineer's undersuit.
