OvomorphMember0 XP07/6/2011http://geektyrant.com/news/2011/7/5/new-photos-from-the-set-of-prometheus.html Don't know how long they will stay up but here are two new pics of the Prometheus set. Ridley I'm sure is not happy. They will come down very soon.

XenomorphMember1261 XP07/6/2011Yeah those were the same ones I found at Alien Prequel News that got a nice call from Fox Legal to remove them

astromax

OvomorphMember0 XP07/6/2011Will they remove them? I thought they appeared within the last 12 hours so.... Wouldn't it be a drag to sit in the premiere of Prometheus and find yourself saying to the fanboy in the next seat; "you see, I have those pics on my deep hard drive". How pathetic! I mean, how seriously patuhetic might you relate too this sh*t?.

Rick

XenomorphMember1261 XP07/6/2011They've already gone viral Fox Legal can take a long walk off a short pier at this point. Although I can understand the secrecy behind keeping the set-pics off the net its takes or spoils the movie in the end.

OvomorphMember0 XP07/6/2011OK yeas yeas and yes!!!!!

astromax

OvomorphMember0 XP07/10/2011Gotta tell ya! I'm sick of looking at these leaked pics of the Prom set. I hate it. Some sawed off piece off midget, head buried in the corner of the shower, with a fistful mumbling: "I got these pics, I've got this connection". It's pathetic!

Rick

XenomorphMember1261 XP07/10/2011LOL Hater ! Just kidding. Good thing is Fox is actually going to Preview Prometheus on the 21st. If anyone lives in San Diego I'm sure Praetorian would love some sneak peak footage.

Chris

EngineerAdmin21815 XP07/11/2011Yes, I'm seeing who is going to be in that area on the 21st. If anyone will be there, please contact me directly at: [email protected] I'm sure someone here will be in that area and will be attending.

OvomorphMember0 XP07/12/2011Now we know from the Icelandic press that the stars of Prometheus are there for filming. OK so we know thats 30 years pre-Alien. Also we know that Iceland will represent earth in it's early formation. Hmmm.. Anyone else confused? Read for yourself. http://feeds.mbl.is/frettir/innlent/2011/07/11/uppruni_geimvera_a_islandi/ Google translate this page. It ain't perfect but good enough.

OvomorphMember0 XP07/15/2011I wonder what science will be used to explain how fast Prometheus will travel to get to whatever star system she travels to, to visit the space jockey race. Here is a wild quote from a website explaining time dilation. "If we continue to accelerate to 0.99999999999999 c, for every day on board, nearly twenty thousand years pass for the observer at rest," (on earth) Add 1 more 9 to that speed and time dilation jumps to over 60,000 years. Prometheus is only 30 years pre-Alien so.......

OvomorphMember0 XP07/16/2011What are “they” doing to my “ALIEN”? What is “PROMETHEUS” going to do…to either FRACK-up the ALIEN Universe or redeem it? I don’t know…seems like nobody else does either. Why does everyone seem to think that “the Alien” (creature) would be this unstoppable force…or the perfect biological weapon? As much as I’ve loved the original since ’79 (I was 12 years old), the creature didn’t do much more than a hungry lion, tiger or bear from planet earth. Other than forced insemination and acid for blood, the Alien creature wasn’t really any more dangerous than terrestrial predators. So, to me…this idea of the Space Jockey(s) genetically engineering and or using the Alien creatures to “Clean” or a prepare a planet for potential “Terra-forming” (actually it wouldn’t be not be Terra-forming…maybe just atmosphere processing) seems pretty lame. Am I missing something? Don’t get me wrong, “ALIEN” is one of my favorite films eva…BUT, all four of the Alien film stories thus far have severely handicapped the human characters with fairly feeble…or no weapons. Moreover, the stories have all located the characters in enclosed locales with very limited space and movement…like any good haunted house story should. I hate to say it but, the alien nemesis in stories like H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” or even the cornball “Independence Day” seem more globally lethal on a planetary level…than the Alien(s). The extra-terrestrials in those films could generate technology, weapons, interstellar travel, and coordinate attacks on a massive level. The fact is that the original “ALIEN” film is a “B” monster movie story…made with “A” level production values. It was crafted by great artists, which elevated a film once titled “STAR BEAST”, to a masterpiece of fiction…and a cracklin’ good yarn along the way. A film that has been called “Ten Little Indians In Space”…ALIEN is perfect film…a perfect thing...to me...like Michelangelo's "David." So once again I ask “What are “they” doing with my ALIEN?” I hope they are doing it proud. Many of the “Prometheus” plotline rumors seem a bit preachy and self-important to me. This whole hyper-genetic, “building blocks of life” theme gets on my nerves, and feels very George Lucas“ish” to me. Hopefully, “midichlorians” will not be introduced. As I’ve posted before…I like to imagine that the Alien is not just some genetically engineered aberration. But, that a God almighty created the seemingly hostile “Alien”…as He created the Black Widow, King Cobra, or Lucifer…for His own mysterious and divine reasons. I just hope the new film is excellent and doesn’t try to explain away our universe and life itself with didactic agendas. ~Neurion

OvomorphMember0 XP07/18/2011Your comparison of the alien to a hungry lion shows how diluted the alien franchise has become. Thats why Prometheus aspires to be an original story but still within the alien universe. Was 2001 preachy?

astromax

OvomorphMember0 XP07/18/2011Here are some quotes: Scott promises a "really tough, really nasty" film that involves gods and engineers of space. Lindelof: "I’ve always felt that really good prequels should be original movies," and the sequels to those prequels should not be the movie which already exists. …(Thats how we know the derelict ship and LV426 are not what Prometheus leads up to or ends with) "Show me something else which I can’t guess the possible outcome of. There is no suspense in inevitability." "So a true prequel should essentially proceed the events of the original film, but be about something entirely different, feature different characters, have an entirely different theme, although it takes place in that same world." So it could be as simple as a shipboard accident and a beacon that could be either an sos or a warning. Mother wasn't definite. It's interesting but It just doesn't matter.

OvomorphMember0 XP07/19/2011Astromax, Whether or not “2001” was preachy…I don’t know. I guess it depends on one’s perspective and set of values. Personally, I think it was at bare minimum…intentionally very cryptic and shrouded with vagueness and ambiguity. I like that quality in the film. I wouldn’t mind seeing the makers of “PROMETHEUS” follow that lead or path with the new prequel. As far as “2001” being preachy? I wouldn’t use that word. Maybe “presumptuous”…or perhaps the other way…”dismissive”, in regard to traditional human beliefs or theories regarding creation, origins, and adaptation of Earthly or universal “Life”. Personally, I doubt that non-divine, extra-terrestrials had anything to do with human development…but that’s just me…and probably about 97.5 percent of the world’s population as well. As far as a “true prequel” is concerned, the so called word “prequel” is a slangy corruption of the actual word “sequel.” The word “prequel” didn’t even exist until the early 1970s. So, a true prequel?…your guess is as good as mine. I think any definition is going to be fairly loose. I just hope that it’s a great film. Peace, Neurion

OvomorphMember0 XP07/19/2011Fassbender says the first 2 thirds of the flic are the intelligence and the final third is the action. So, whe're not going to see Brett early walking the corridors saying, "meowow, here kitty kitty". That tension was insane. It made people in the audience sick, literally. But Ridley says it will be tough and nasty. I for one believe him. Can't wait!!!

OvomorphMember0 XP08/2/2011I just hope it doesn't have a pg 13 rating. That would kill the vibe, horror movies are for adults and so is the entire alien franchise. People like to feel real life emotions when it comes to horror meaning adults saying and doing real things when **** hits the fan, and monsters making a mess, cause thats what monsters do, i mean with moderation of course. Remember it was the chest bursting scene from alien that got millions of people on the edge of their seats. The alien transforming while the team of scientist struggled to survive their own chaos, these are the points of great horror a combination of gore and suspense. If the space jockeys made aliens predators or whatever else they obviously have some form of edge to them so they should be scene as scary dark architects masterminds of the universe, yet still vulnerable to chance, fate, as in they are still creatures created by the creator just real smart with genetics. peace.

OvomorphMember0 XP09/19/2011hey new to the forum so...HI! just joined to keep up to date with all the new on the film as I am a huge Alien geek. My hopes for the film I guess are all in the atmosphere and look of the movie. I don't want it to look too polished or new does that make sense? I heard a rumour Fassbender was playing an android has that been touched on? Interested in what angle they are coming from with this movie if we have earth-humans and androids but its not a direct prequel...over all very excited !!

OvomorphMember6 XPApr-12-2012 8:58 PMJust thought it would be fun to look at the first thread on this web site. New post on an old topic lol. I think this film will be great! Time has really gone by since this was first posted. It is fun too, to see some of the old "first images" and the old "beckon, hidden code" on the Weyland page. I know I am lame. lol

bigbirdjimmy

OvomorphMember6 XPApr-12-2012 9:01 PMIts nice to just take a step back and look at the whole picture.

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-12-2012 9:14 PMFunny story, Because of this film I cannot help myself and for almost 2 years since I first heard their was a chance of this happening I have been obsessing about seeing it. Along the way I learned a heck of a lot, mostly from other people here but also from being inspired by almost every other one of YOU ALL here and to go on and do research online and in a library even on so many related topics to the film. I got back into GIGER and his Necronomicon and also In studying some Ancient Earth Art after watching many many episodes, all of them to date in fact of the TV series "Ancient Aliens"...I came across this picture, and since I have seen it all I can think of is how much the character on the right hand side resembles or just makes me think immediately of...STIMPY from WREN & STIMPY!!!

OvomorphMember6 XPApr-12-2012 9:23 PMlol, your right. That was a great show! Well you know what they say, "many hands make light work". There is a lot of sources here from everywhere, different educations and different experiences. We are all smarter for this site! LOL.

Chris

EngineerAdmin21815 XPMay-27-2012 3:55 PMBringing this thread back to life - as some of us are a mere 4 days away from the premiere! Hard to believe this thread was started about a year ago. Let's look back and see what we thought about Prometheus back then to what we think now! And what we will think in 4 - 12 days! Personally, I'm more excited now than I was at the time of starting this thread for Prometheus! Share your thoughts on Prometheus here!

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-09-2012 8:35 PMIt's blisteringly bad. I'd be entirely sorry I'd seen it were it not so forgettable.

OvomorphMember22 XPJun-09-2012 8:36 PMIT WILL BE ,,,,,,,,,,,,UNforgettable

It'sLikeAnAnthive

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-09-2012 9:02 PMI loved it, really glad I spent the extra money for the IMAX tickets, absoulutly amazing. Only one complaint could've used another half hour or even an hour of more film, still amazing, and easily better then most of the movies out now. IMO

Spartacus

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-09-2012 9:05 PMI was overwhelmed by how special my experience seeing it in the IMAX theater Premier at Midnight on June 6th was. I Loved it !

OvomorphMember22 XPJun-09-2012 10:07 PMoverwhelmed............. is better

arrgy

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-09-2012 10:51 PMPrometheus was... Beautiful to look at..... but painful to watch

mindlab

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-09-2012 11:15 PMI was thoroughly entertained. Enjoyed it quite heavily. I think that it will stand the test of time and grow on people as they understand it more, much like Blade Runner. This is easily the top sci-fi film to hit the big screen in years.

artyoh

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-09-2012 11:26 PMI agree, mindlab. It will grow in stature as time goes on, much like another movie which seemed to polarize audiences: "A.I."
