There’s a fairly interesting interview on IfOnlyUK with Daniel Twiss AKA Daniel James who plays one of the Engineers in Prometheus. He talks about his time on set, what it was like working with Ridley Scott and what it was like in the costume. But most of all, he reveals his character’s fate. Fairly big spoilers below:
In the original Alien, the crew encounter the ‘Space Jockey’, now known as an ‘Engineer’ (the name for the alien race) however, as this is a semi-prequel, the ‘Engineers’ have a much bigger part to play. My character is that of a fairly young ‘Engineer’ who ritualistically sacrifices himself in the opening scene. This sacrifice is very different to any others as I have to drink an ancient mix which causes my body to literally disintegrate into the water around me. This then provides the first building blocks for new life to form on the alien planet. There are two other ‘Engineers’ who are in the rest of the film and have fairly large parts, but you will have to wait for release to find out more.

Kotaku has recently interviewed Gearbox CEO about the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines videogame. This time Randy Pitchford talks about Gearbox’s approach to the story and how the studio plans to explain the inconsistencies between Aliens and Alien 3. Be aware of spoilers.
“One of the things we’re really proud about is that there were some things that fans like us always believed were inconsistencies between Alien3 and Aliens,” Pitchford said, “But as we dig into it, as we work with filmmakers and kind of understand it all and think about it from a logic problem point of view, there is actually a truth there that makes more sense. When we are able to use it to stitch it together, Alien3 is actually a better movie.”

In a lengthy interview with Forbes.com, Jon Spaihts talks about how he got involved with the film, Ridley Scott and some of the main ideas and inspirations for the story. It’s very interesting read. Visit the source or click below to read the interview in full.
“He [Ridley Scott] thinks on multiple story levels all the time, his pen is always moving, always sketching images with a phenomenal draftsmen’s eye.” Scott would see an image in his mind, and Spaihts’ job was often to make it happen in the story. “Sometimes my job was to push back. ‘No, someone can’t float around in the scene, we have gravity here.’”
