You can be right here. In fact I remember seeing the Predators trailer where at the end the main character gets targeted by multiple lasers, while in the movie it was actually just one. That proves that the promotional material (even the video footage) can be altered to serve marketing purposes.

I have said in a previous post, that the planet's landscape in the picture doesn't seem to be LV-426. The way the terrain looks and the complete absence of the rock pillars and arches indicates that this is another planet. The absence of the rocky formations can also be seen in the leaked production/set photos.

Therefore, the "storm" can be just added to the promotional material for people to recognize and say "hey, this looks just like the planet back in the old days". I might be wrong here, and I wish I was, but I do not fully trust the promotional material. Images can be altered, so can videos, to give us a different impression.

I am not saying that the photo is bad in any shape or form, just that we should take into consideration the facts stated above.

Yeah I'd go along with that. To be honest the "storm" thing was just a passing thought, I was more focused on the idea this might be part of a crashed or damaged ship, based on the prop from an earlier spoiler looking frayed and like part of some landing gear or a clamp, but I'm convinced the prop and the area I indicated (previous page) are the same thing at least.

Maybe a ship is taking off... Maybe its a windy planet...Maybe its a wind storm...Could be a lot of things. And upon comparisson, that helmet's nose is still curious, but I agree the size doesnt make any sense unless she were to swell a LOT.

Sorry if I am like the hundreth bloke to tell you this...but you mispelled John Hurt's character's name.  His last name was spelled "Kane".  So, your username should be KanesSon.  Again, apologies if this has already been pointed out.

Unless, of course, you were going for a Biblical reference, in which case your username should be "Enoch".   ;)

Anyone know if that's really from the movie? :-\

are you serious? that's certainly NOT from the movie itself but a snapshot of the site that they're staying at for the time of filming. you will neither see any of these helicopters or people with security vests running around in the movie.

It's not. It's just a set picture. APN posted it a few days back.

It is. But reading back over your post, then yes, it maybe. I mis-read it as to mean that's how you thought the scene would look with helicopters and security vested folk included. My apologies.

The helicopter looks too 'today' to be something in the Alien universe (even if this is only 80 or 90 some odd years in the future)

Plus those look like portable trailers ... on the left (again, looking very much 'today' in standards)

I thought the Iceland shoot was for the the Prologue to life on Earth sequence, and that the fossil dig scene was to take place somewhere else.

The film is called 'Prometheus'
 'Prometheus' is about a theft from superior-beings/gods.
That picture is obviosly the theft in progress...

Ridley Scott is making a heist movie.
