I regard this as interesting, but it's not dampening my caution about this project. I remember some of the ideas this director has espoused for a fifth film and they were a bit bizarre.

This had to be a prequel because AR ruined the franchise and there was nowhere to go with it.  Ripley 8 was one of the dumbest ideas in modern film making.

WHY are some people assuming that, just because the new movie is a prequel, this new Alien movie will be about Space Jockeys or even Ripley??  If you didnt get it in the original movie then you obviously wern't watching, soooo, do yourselves a BIG favour and read the book by Alan Dean Foster.  CASES IN POINT...  Space travel has obviously been around a long time.... NOWHERE is it stated no one had seen the Alien Ship before it was only assumed, but it WAS stated that ship has also been on the planetoid a very long time.  Read between the lines people theres BAGS of scope for this.

Little to NO CG.  NO ADI.  NO PG 13.  NO FOX making creative decisions.  NO Comedy.  NO new alien designs.  NO chestbursters that look like hotdog buns with teeth.  NO aliens trotting around like raptors and if Jean Pierre whatever, Paul Anderson or the Strause brothers come within 100 miles of the filming they must be aprehended and a restraining order must be placed.

Predator getting a sequel produced by Rodriguez, Alien getting a prequel directed by Scott. Everything is as it should be.

Even WITH Ridley at the healm, they're gonna have to dig DEEP to conjure up any kind of quality story and plot for the idea of a prequel... Ridley Scott =/= automatic success.
