how many years after alien is it meant to take place?
its a "prequel" its set before
is it just me or does the space suits look pretty unimpressive. Looks like the costume from xmen first class. Also the interior of the humans space craft looks kinda basic. The ampule room looks amazing tho and that face on the wall is of the hook!
I would probably say this is an enviroment suit. Not a space suit
Sorry i meant how many years before is it meant to be set? The suit looks slightly more advanced than the one in the first film .
Personally I am okay with certain technology and suits etc looking a little more advanced in this film then in the original film. I mean, the crew of the Nostromo were space truckers, and may have already been using old tech anyway, maybe a ship that was already 40 or so years old. Old suits too. Where as in this film, we are following, say, NASA type people.
I look at it like this, people are still driving trucks and cars today made in the 70's, and when sitting next to a new vehicle at a red light, you can see a big tech and visual difference, but things are still familiar. You know?
If it's an egg, then it's tilted on it's side with either the top or base mostly toward the camera. I don't buy it, though. I have to admit I'm seeing more xenomorph than jockey in the prone body, but then no-one knows what a Jockey looks like from the hips down, do they? It's all very intriguing!
I dont think it is an egg, to me it looks like possibly the head of creature on the ground like its been decapitated or something
I was thinking the same thing.
