Although I would feel better if that was a quote from Ridley Scott.

How many movie trailers in hindsight have given away pretty much the entire movie?  Further what has the leaked trailers provided us with...

1. Ampules/Urns
2. Giant Head
3. Dead Body / Abandaoned Space Suit
4. Egg which is extremely similar to the egg from Alien even down to the opening at the top
5. What some will argue is "creature" footage
6. Impregnated Female
7. Green Goo presumably from Ampule/Urns

If one through seven doesn't even count as the "sweet stuff" R. Scott was mentioning than I'm extremely excited for the movie.  I assumed he would keep the good stuff under wraps, but when that much stuff is provided in the trailer it makes you worried that to much has been given away.

Both are going to have a lot to swallow.

Oh, Ridley, you card...

According to some interpretations. Not one I'd agree with. The only thing anyone can definitely agree upon is that it's 'something'.

74 years old? gotta respect this guy.
I am certain he will bring for me the best movie of 2012.

I should have clarified the egg was not from the trailer... it was from one of the production stills they released that was enhanced for clarity.

Yeah, and so?  I know what you are referring to, and those are still some shady interpretations.  They aren't eggs, as far as I'm concerned.  They look like they're made of rock.

There is a fair bit of stuff in the article that is not Ridley's actual words, mostly insinuation by the article's author. Scott doesn't say much of anything in here that we haven't heard before, however...

Quote
He talked about bioengineering and biological warfare as potential themes. Has he been able to satisfy his curiosity in that respect? "Definitely."

That's good. Thanks for the transcription Gazz!

By the way who wrote the article. Was it the author of Alien Vault, Ian Nathan by chance?
If so, that guy is definitely in the know of things to expect in Prometheus, so he would have a greater license to accurately fill in the gaps in the article.
