The Plot Synopsis is interesting... does seem to not quite fit what Ridley had said before.... Here is a Plot Synopsis made by me that incorporates what Ridley had been saying about the Next Movie over the last 2 years.
After the discovery that Mankind's Origins did not originate from Earth, and horrid truth that our potential creators wanted our destruction. David and Shaw go off in search of the Origins of the Engineers. Shaw still holding the belief that there has to be a Higher Creator to the Mortal Engineers they came across after the Project Prometheus.... Shaw has many unanswered Questions... will David be merely a Passenger on this Voyage or now Free, does he have his own Agenda... Will Shaw Find Paradise... or will Paradise be a Living Hell? And will they finally meet their Maker? Or their undoing? Is creation and the universe divine and with splendour or disaster and with sacrifice.
The above Plot Synopsis covers everything what Ridley had hinted at over the years.... the end of the first movie left Two Open Endings to Exlpore..... Ridley said that logically you can only go forward one way, and that would be to follow Shaw and David on their mission to find Paradise.
Ridley then futher over the last 18 months or so teased us that, Paradise could be a very dark and ominous place, and that the beings they would finally meet are not Gods, not in the traditional sense, but beings who are far from Benevolent.
Ridley hinted that our Engineers or indeed what Shaw finds would relate more to Fallen Angels than God. Even hinting at the Devil.
He hinted before that, that they never wanted to meet God in the first movie... this hinting that Engineers are not God or Gods, and this would lend weight to Shaws Faith in wanting to find out who created them (Engineers).
David would be carrying Hell with him (Cargo) and what happens if the Goo infects Machine? or God?
Ridley latter hinted that Shaw and David will go on their mission to get answers, but what they uncover is far from what maybe Shaw would be expecting.
What they would find would be a Scene of a Disaster...... which hints at a catastrophe on Paradise like witnessed on LV-223?
Ridley hinted that they are going to go the route to show who and why the Biological Warefare was created (Goo? or Xeno) and was it created to protect them.. but from who? They would be aiming to eventually show us more of how the Xeno came to be but this would be left for a 3rd movie or even a 4th... but the seeds would be planted as far as start to show Who created the Biology that would eventually lead to the Alien in the first movie.
Ridley hinted the movie would follow some themes from Paradise Lost, but he was vague about it but it would however have a similar tone to it but thats where it ends......
Then he hinted that as in Paradise Lost, you had one Attractive Guy who did what ever they want, had all the fun and all the Girls... while one Less Attractive Guy stayed at home being boring....
He then hinted at not only how does creation occur, but how is it that certain Planets have the right Properties to be able to Support Life.... is all that Accidental? Was the Big Bang even what happened?
He Also hinted before at how can we take for granted that Mankind was the Engineers only creation and Earth the only World they created life..... he also touched upon this not long ago by saying that Earth is not the only Place that may have Human Life.
And where is the Big Guy behind all this...?
He did add few more things over the years but they are all very Bold Ideas..... and he collaborated with Dark Horse for how they would cover the Goo/Xeno and Engineers so as to not tread on anyones toes but that they was in the end all the same Toes anyway....
Well the latest Plot Synopsis seems to differ from what we have been fed over the years....
Is it more than coincidence that Blomkamps Alien 5 that was going well, and liked by Ridley and planned, but had a few things that clashed with ideas for a Prometheus sequel and how Ridley wanted to handle certain aspects....
To now the Movie on Hold, and who knows what will become of it... Now we get not ONE but TWO Name Changes that both start with the Prefix Alien: and we get news of Another Group of Travelers inbound to same place David and Shaw are off too, then just before the 2nd Change we get News that there is a new Writer Hired to Make Changes to the STORY
Finally to get a Synopsis that seems to imply that David Alone reaches some World far in the Galaxy, that somehow another group of Explorers is heading to the same place to discover David all alone? Do they accidentaly discover the same Place... and if its what they hopped to be Paradise but then its not and dark place when they find it, surely they would detect it was not a ideal Paradise World if they found it on their own accord? Only explantion is they intercepted some transmision and directions from Shaw or David that led them to also think they would be finding Paradise!
Is David waiting their to great them? or has he laid a Trap.... how can this movie link more to Alien than Prometheus if the World is a Dead place with No Life..... something tells me David may be wanting to Play God and use this Crew as Test Subjects...
This is what it seems we are looking at... another kind of Alien/Star Beast as opposed to Prometheus kind of Plot or what Prometheus 2 seemed to be leading us to....
We shall have to give it time, but this news looks like some Changes have been made to what Clues Ridley had been giving over the Years.... surely he has not had a U-Turn Last Minute and if so how long before he made such a U-Turn.
