The hallway looks like horizontal vaginas as previously stated. Very Gigeresque.

It's because of the horizontal wood flooring...so the camera-dollies can move about effectively.
Wood in soundstages is used and re-used till it's too small to be a logical horizontal plane to hold a comera.
Remove the flat surface and I'm sure you'll see something MUCH more organic (ala the first film).

Yes it's very gigeresque but like i said if you look at the "vaginas" there are liss round than geometric in their shapes.

As for the flloor i don't really get what you mean Glaive.
It's obvious that it's the actual set design, the floor has markings, like the ones that can be seen on the stone entrance.

Overall the gigeresque design is there but less bones and sexual than the derelict ship.
I doubt we will see an entrance that looks like a big vagina or other obvious sex organs designs.
The ideas will be there but it wll be less in your face than it was in Alien.
No way Fox will let Scott do huge vagina entrance.

Why not? They entered through a big vagina in the first film

Plus Fox said no to a lot of things in the first film but scott ignored them and did it anyway

Well do you realise that ALIEN was released in 1979 before studios were so obssesed with PG13, marchandising, box office and such? Have you not seen or heard about the way Fox deals with directors nowdays? How this studio ditch artistic choices in favor of safe family friendly choices.

Yes Scott did made a lot of stuff on his own but it was a different time when execs had less or none control.
Now all is checked, verified before.

No way in hell you will see those overtly sex organs inspired designs from the derelict ship.
It will be subtle and convey the same feeling but it will be toned down and different.

Nooo, pls no vagina...that would've worked for the first movie in 1979 but imagine today's cinema audience, PG13, sitting there with all those kids and then suddenly a big vagina appears. They would not calm down till the credits  :o

It's certainly a different biomechanical design although the floors seemed to be not biomechanical. I have to say I don't know what the idea behind it is or what Giger was possibly asked to design in this case.

It might all be part of a land based building complex somewhere

Well you can already see with the ship/cave entrance that we saw that the Vagina entrance is already gone.
But well since it's still feel biorganic and is a different class ship i don't mind.
Or do i?

I don't remember the floor of the derelict corridors being very biomechanical.
BTW way i doubt the vaginas were the real entrance of the derelict ship, the corridor they lead to is too small for an SJ. Some exhaust ducts or anything like this?

Maybe the SJs are (how can I put this delicately?)...more...urm, FLEXIBLE?

well, I suppose the derelict, you could argue it was a spaceship but at the end of the day, it was a biomechanic structure of some sort fulfilling a purpose to be guessed at. Ideally it was a spaceship, but....

i don't think stone is a good fit with biomechanics at all, and certainly not in the way the floors appear in those leaked set photos. kane and that looked like they were walking through some massive digestive system, here it looks like the wheelchair friendly entrance to giger's bar

Has anyone noticed that the big giant head appears to have huge "bulbs" over where the eye sockets ought to be? And that it doesnt have any lips over the teeth? Reminiscent of givers original alien design, with a nose.
