It's quite obvious.  Alien/Blade Runner shared universe.

Those movie do not share the same universe.

There are things that point to them being a shared universe.  SM, your knowledge is needed here.  I would explain but I am on my phone on my way to work.  Citing sources would be difficult to accomplish.

SM is not needed here. He's not an oracle. Both movies do not share the same universe. Period.

Blade Runner Easter Egg in Prometheus doesn't count. It was made just for fun.



Besides, how movie based upon Philip K. Dick novel has anything to do with Alien universe and vice versa? I cannot see any connections.

I don't see the harm in them being in the same universe, so the easter egg in Prometheus is a nice nod to that.

Oh and SM is an oracle.  The pain you shall endure for such slander shall be legendary, even in hell.  :)

Yeah, there's two computer graphic sequences that were recycled from Alien in Blade Runner. As well as the humming sound in Deckard's apartment. They were used simply because Scott liked the look of the graphics and the sound effect. Luckily few know about the Millennium Falcon model in Blade Runner or people would be claiming it shares the same universe with Star Wars as well.

Ridley was toying with the idea of adding Blade Runner elements in Prometheus, the Roy Batty mercenary for example. Another idea of Scott was to call Weyland Corp, the Weyland-Tyrell Corporation instead Never made it to the screen though, maybe he changed his mind or maybe it was simply a case of not being able to use another company's IP in a Fox film. And a good thing in my opinion.

Very good thing indeed that it never happened. I would hate BR and Alien sharing the same universe. It would have been the cheesiest heresy ever.

Roy Batty in Prometheus? As a character (Jesus!) from BR or just guy with identical name? Do you have a link?

As an actual character, I assume Batty would have been mass produced. Combat model - optimum self sufficiency.  :)
Scott also wanted to cast Rutger Hauer as Mr. Weyland at one point. Can you imagine the mess all this would have created?

Valaquen wrote a great article a few years back about all that. Even had concept art of Batty and Rutger as Weyland IIRC. If Val reads this maybe he could drop us a link?

Blade Runner is set in the 1940's as much as it is set in the future. Stylistically completely different from the Alien universe.

I've never heard about it. I love Scott but sometimes ... sometimes ... Jesus!
Rutger Hauer as Mr. Weyland? I wouldn't mind. I know that Max von Sydow was Scott's original choice.
