Just watched the preview of the crew landing and the backburster scene.All I will say is that there's a fine line between horror and comedy,well for me atleast.
When Faris got her foot trapped between the door I couldn't help but find it all rather amusing,especially as the little Neomorph fella looks horrifically cute in the process.I'm pretty certain this wasn't R.Scott's intention ;)

On the contrary, I thought it was supposed to be a little funny. They do the slipping on blood pratfall twice in the same sequence, even. Prometheus had a macabre sense of humor, too, and I'm glad that element has carried over.

It's all coming along rather nicely.

Loved The Crossing prologue.

I do agree that David did know exactly how long it would take to get to the Homeworld (he can speak their language, pilot their ships etc so he can study their data & info aboard the Juggernaut) but I wonder if he doesn't wake Shaw to protect her, or indeed she is ill and he knows it, and his motive for the film is to try and either cure Shaw or gain bloody revenge for what the Engineers have done or would have done to humanity (even though it was he who infected Holloway).

Or as someone else mentioned, David could be telling is story from his point of view.

I tend to think Shaw is alive in the movie just because they are actually showing us clues she's dead (the dog tags etc) and I think they will want to surprise us.

Maybe Shaw escapes on to the Covenant at the climax or more likely she sacrifices herself in order to let the Covenant crew escape Paradise.

Intriguing.

I haven't seen the backburster sequence but macabre sense of humour is a constant throughout all the Alien films.

It is a possibility - an unreliable narrator.
But actually I think it's more interesting to have a complex David character, who would truly have some positive relationship with Shaw : it's more stimulating.

I'll be very interested to see what Shaw's status as I'm clinging to the idea her "awakening " will be covered in the next film.

I assuming she dies in the crash while in cryo-sleep? Ridley has now resorted to Alien 3 tactics!

I'm kidding of course, but I really can't figure out what's happened to her.

Well, according to the leaks

Which is a bit confusing, since he genuinely seemed to like Shaw in this clip. But perhaps he was lying.

You could thus argue that the citizens on the planet have been left 'behind' for 2000 years.

But still have working technology that supports a 2000 year old ships arrival... via docking procedures ?  :-\

These *engineers* seem devolved but still have older tech circa 2000 years old perhaps?

dude did you even see prometheus? i mean for real dude, they just activated a ship that was 2000 years old,
they woke up a engineer that was sleeping for 2000 years, and they decided to also activate another 2000 year old ship.
is that even an honest question there because i can't begin to grasp how on earth that wouldn't be a problem but on another planet,
it would? for real.

I'm curious if anyone has a good or reasonable theory as to how the Juggernaught (sp.) that we see Shaw and David in ends up crashing on the planet?

Maybe David takes advantage of a bad situation  (i.e. Shaw has side effects from her experiences in Prometheus or gets exposed to the black goo)?
