Alien: Paradise Lost, huh? Sounds good to me.

Wonder if it will take the themes from the book.

A little wikipedia synopsis for everyone:

Quote
Milton's story has two narrative arcs, one about Satan (Lucifer) and the other following Adam and Eve. It begins after Satan and the other rebel angels have been defeated and banished to Hell, or, as it is also called in the poem, Tartarus. In Pandæmonium, Satan employs his rhetorical skill to organise his followers; he is aided by Mammon and Beelzebub. Belial and Moloch are also present. At the end of the debate, Satan volunteers to poison the newly created Earth and God's new and most favoured creation, Mankind. He braves the dangers of the Abyss alone in a manner reminiscent of Odysseus or Aeneas. After an arduous traversal of the Chaos outside Hell, he enters God's new material World, and later the Garden of Eden.

Very surprising indeed. I never expected them to drop the Prometheus name considering it was supposed to be its own franchise.

I'm going to assume this is partially a joke. That title is awful.

Much like the reveal of titles such as Star Wars Episode 1's title The Phantom Menace" and Star Wars The Force Awaken my reaction was, "YE... WTF? Um, interesting title. :/

What an awful title. Surely just 'Paradise Lost' would have been better, without the Alien moniker?

If it was just Paradise Lost, the average Joe wouldn't know that it's related to Prometheus. I can see the reasoning behind it. They should have done the same thing with the first movie.

Yeah, Milton's poem is essentially about civil war. If it follows the same themes it might be about the good Engineers vs the bad Engineers. In an old Prometheus interview Scott likened the Engineers to the dark angels of John Milton's Paradise Lost.

Very surprising indeed. I never expected them to drop the Prometheus name considering it was supposed to be its own franchise.

Prometheus: Paradise Lost would have made more sense but the Alien brand will probably have more marketing power.

Yeah, but all fans alike agree that Prometheus was indeed a prequel to the franchise. I like it better that way anyway. The Alien saga is the best movie series of all time, so relating more movies to it seems appeasing.

So does this mean the Prometheus section of the forums is going to move inside the Alien Films section?


I think it's a great title.

Interesting move. I could've lived with PROMETHEUS: ALIEN PARADISE.
