Because of course he didn't get any attention with exposure to a worldwide audience in a smash hit film and an Oscar to boot.

Plus, you people are mad for thinking that complex is giger-esque. If you have an understanding on fine art (i.e. have done courses, are a professional artist) I'm sure you will know what I mean.

I know what you mean, I have a BFA, above all else, Ridley is making a new art form in the sci-fi horror genre. Giger and Scott are like long lost art buddies. :)

But the temple is based off a Giger design--one of his unused Dune temples, complete with a face and everything. It's been watered down, but it's still obviously based off Giger's work.

Yes, I agree. It has been potentially based off it, in general shape. But lets not confuse that with a true Giger design as some are :P.

I was just saying it looks like the Dune painting, that's all. Looks awesome. :)

I think that's what Giger's design would look like when exposed to the weather for about 500.000 years.  :)

Thing is, it is missing organic components, and also missing the illogical/irrational part of his particular surrealist style.
Buuuut thats content for an entirely different topic that probably doesn't belong in these forums...

Onto the original point: yes it is reminiscent, and whoever devised it's concept was surely taking from his ideas in generality.

Also, anyone else notice the bowl reference in the Norse mythos, and the bowl holloway is looking at in Trailer #1?

I like to imagine one of the script review meetings may have went something like this...

Regarding Eitr - could it be the vital element needed to produce functioning androids? I mean, the mythic substance is also refeered to as 'creating life' or something like it? The white substance that flows in their veins wink wink..?  ;)
Well, I personally doubt it will turn out to be robots' blood, as it's quite rare resource and robots would perhaps be rent to pieces and drained for their precious white fluid  ;)

i really hope the story will be something big, something really new and cool ...
...and, to boot, stipilated by the more large scope of information, rather than the one can find on Wikipedia!  ;D

Sir Ridley:  All right, I want you to hit the books, and integrate all the important Norse myths into this story.  And I mean really get into this research.  I DO NOT want you relying on Wikipedia for any of this shit.

About the temple's shape we can spot in the trailers, don't you count it's very similar in its exterior of early Giger's draft of Alien Eggs Silo, not to the Dune's structure design? I'm darn sure you have seen this picture before:

Will you exemplify it with screenshot?

Great finds! And as for temple in the movie, it seems to include designs of both Dune's and Egg Silo picture, depeding on the side you are looking at it.
