The structure in Prometheus and HR Giger's Harkonnen castle design from the aborted Dune:



Did Scott dig up Giger's old, unused designs? Giger worked on Alejandro Jodorowsky's version of Dune pre-Alien, and Ridley too worked on Dune after Alien, but left the project due to his brother Frank's death. Enter David Lynch. Anyhow, a return to Giger's old designs?

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

it looks very much like Ridley took Gigers design and added some Sphinx-style erosion - et voilà

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.

Cvalda, just noticed your new Space Tapir image.  Well done.  ;D

So, eitr is the goo, its an acid [DNA is an acid is it not?(alien blood?)] and humans were made from clay (eitr)?

Eitr is our maguffin then. we can make anything living from it!

You, Sir are just too fast ;)

Wanted to post exactly the same pic compare.

Yep, it almost jumps to the eye. Hopefully there is more to this structure than pure rock.

Hopefully :). A little bit of an organic feel here and there will bring it much more in line. Current shots just make it looks like eroded rock though. Which suits for sure... but doesn't conjure Giger's style. Let's face it though... imagine building some of those illogical landscapes and buildings of his... it would be like trying to build your own penrose staircase :laugh:.

Thanks! That is what I was seeing. It can't be a coincidence. Ridley wanted to do this stuff in Alien, but was short on budget, so he can now do what he wanted to do, in regards to some of the concepts of Giger. I know the design was made after Alien, but Ridley is obviously still a big fan of his, and he is sneaking in this stuff for the fans!!! We haven't even seen the "monsters" yet. :) Me thinks that Giger designed those too, and Ridley is just lying about Giger just doing Murals...
