Alien/Prometheus & Blade Runner 2049, Domes Resemblance

Hello, this is my first and I think the last topic I started here. I watched all Alien movies, Prometheus and recently Blade Runner 2049. What made me really surprised is that everyone's talking about the connection between all these movies saying that they are set in the same universe but nobody, I say nobody mentioned a connection based on visual resemblance of Domes structures, in Blade Runner 2049 and Prometheus. 

What's also common, all domes are related to development of/experiments with organic life, located in a far-distant deserted lands. I believe such connection can even spark some theories.

Nice Catch...

I have to get back to you as i have a Admission... i have yet to see Blade Runner 2049... think its time to unwrap it and stick it on ;)

I would assume its there to show us a connection as far as these are TWO similar events.. but connected via TWO Separate Franchises..

These events.... Sub-Creation and the Hubris of doing so.

They're domes, not pyramids.

Javablue, thanks, I've already changed pyramid with a dome word. When I was doing some research before to start this topic I found that for most people it doesn't really matter how precisely to describe those installations.

No problems, Georgy. The dome in Prometheus is a bit confusing because while Janek refers to the structure as a dome later in the movie, he also (along with Shaw) calls it a pyramid.

Most interesting, it seems everyone associated with the film, including Ridley, calls the structure a pyramid. Surely Ridley, the great visualist, would know the diff between a pyramid and a dome. Maybe it's a clue.

Some people have spoken of a connection between BR and Prometheus. Not sure myself...

Certainly they had been referred to as Pyramids, but they are not due to the Shape (Pyramid Structures kind of form some kind of Pyramid Shape, even though some are less Pyramid Shape such as the Latin American ones).

We have also seen them (in the Franchise) be considered Temples, but in reality those in Prometheus and Blade Runner are more Scientific Compounds.  But those in Prometheus do hold a Ritual Significance and so calling them Temples also works well.
