Prometheus Not So Alien-less?

According to an article posted by SkyMovies, Prometheus isn’t going to be as Alien-less as we were led to believe:

“They’ve built the ‘space jockey’ cockpit at Pinewood as seen in the original Alien film, so it definitely takes place in the same world as Alien”, they told us.

“Despite that press release that seemed to indicate there were no aliens in the movie, the familiar HR Giger-style aliens do appear. Big ones apparently.”

“Part of the film will be shot in Morocco. I’ve heard that some sort of archaeological dig where they discover alien DNA takes place there and that DNA gives them the coordinates for an alien world. I’ve also heard Morocco is being used for alien planet landscapes so I’m not sure if it’s an archaeological dig on another planet,” they revealed.

As well as this, article mentions an “enormous head” that pilots the main spaceship and the mention of the shoot in Morocco was rumored earlier in November.

In addition, this news came not long after the announcement Michael Fassbender has been cast to play an android. Thanks to Outpost31, Darkoo and Kieran for the news.

    man if that is true ( it is most likely be true) then they must be really working very hard on it now

    If I had to guess the focus of Prometheus will gradually move from the Alien onto creatures like the Space Jockey's and their intentions.

    Same universe, but wider scope.
    yeah thats what i have been thinking aswell

    In all honesty, all this hype about Aliens in Prometheus seems a bit premature.  I don't want to be the b@$t@rd out to ruin everybody's hopes and dreams, but this all seems to lack an "official" feel to it.  A lot of these claims appear more to be misinterpretations than actual evidence and fact.  But, I could be wrong.  I just don't want everybody's hopes raised only so they'll come crashing down to the floor later.

    Personally, I think this would be very interesting if it were a bit from column A and a bit from column B; you could have it as part of the Alien continuity without tying it too heavily to previous films. If you have Aliens in it, cool beans. If not, cool beans.

    What I really want to see when I go to the cinema is a return to the style of sci-fi Alien best represents -- the mysterious and confronting.

    I also really like the idea of Aliens being more amorphous than previously intended, and not necessarily due to host, but due to the fact they're f**kin' alien and make no sense via our narrow perceptions. Something like this is potentially fantastic because it opens the scope of the setting without limiting itself by being overtly imitative.

    Now that Fassbender has basically confirmed that yes this is connected to alien I think we can safely relax a little.

    From slashfilm.com -

    Fassbender (when asked if it is an alien movie and if it follows the continuity with the alien movies) -

    “Oh, absolutely. There’s a definite connecting vein,. You realize you’re part of something else, but it’s definitely in keeping with the old ones.” … “When I read it, I was like, ‘Well, okay, another Alien. Where do you go with this idea?’ And then I sort of read the script, and it’s new, yet it’s in keeping with the old traditions as well. But there’s a whole new revelation within this film.” …. “The first ‘Alien’ [movies], they were thrillers. Something’s going on. It’s creeping, it’s sinister. Things are happening, it’s building, [and there are] different sorts of intrigues and politics going on between the different relationships on board. There’s action in it,” he said, “but the intelligence is what struck me when I read it. It’s more sort of like the original ones. There are things happening and building, and the intelligence of the first two-thirds of the film gets you ready for the action.”

    Charlize Theron could have misinterpretted the script.  Either way, you're right; we shouldn't argue about this.  We'll find out the truth eventually.  What's the point arguing?

    You people are Fu#€kn ridiculous. Now because you don't personally know who these people are you doubt their words? Shit, Ridley Scott himself could say something and you'd disbelieve it doubting the source of the quote.  I love fandom, and I loathe it with a passion as well.

    People have to understand that THIS IS THE INTERNET!!! Everything in it is TRUE!!! There is absolutely no need to be skeptical about internet quotes. I mean all the information in it is 100% correct and reliable.  I mean who has ever used the internet to spread lies??? "No one" is the answer.

    No one's insulting the fandom, calm down.  But, I want it noted that it's these kinds of rumors that put the word out that Chet would die in the first 20 minutes of AVPR.  Even though some of us would love it if that were true, it clearly didn't work out that way.

    Yeah, who are these people again?  I can see from your links are their statements, I don't know anything about these people's biographies or who they are.  How do you know they're not just fans posing as people in the loop?

    anyway do you guys thnk that the predators had a relation with the space jockeys like with the jockeys helmet at the begginging of avp2
  13. BonesawT101
    the studio and Scott almost certainly won't respond to any emails asking questions like that because I suspect they deliberately are trying to mislead everyone, at least for the time being.
