It will be interresting to see what they do create, with no facehuggers or chestbursters, I wonder what they will come up with. No matter what it is, I'm not worried at all.
Alien: Romulus - New Alien Movie Coming Soon! Visit Alien-Covenant.com for more info!
With no chest bursters we won't be dealing with an infected situarion (eggs). So, the leaked(?) outline makes sense.
Artifacts & coordinates discovered.
Travel to meet our makers.
Wear out our welcome by stealing teraforming source code.
Humans are attacked, escape but are pursued.
Wouldn't it be inteesting if the pursuit ship is the derelict ship, fron Alien, filled with pods for earth, the Space jockey's ungratful children's home. If we really did escape, where is the source code? Area 51 I guess.
They did mention the new creatures would have a sexual characteristic. Perhaps the method of infection is more akin to the AVP2 method where the embryos were implanted via a massive face hug from the Predalien itself. It should be very interesting to see, and I personally can't wait for the new shift.
So long as the stick to the creature I grew up fearing in principle, I'm hoping it will be an improvement. If it looks ridiculous, then it won't be a horror movie but an action one. Either way I'll be pleased, but I'm really hoping to capture that sense of fear I got from Alien and Alien 3 (Aliens was an action movie).
Stealthy, cruel, cunning, cold and calculated. No more cannon fodder alien swarms please. I want to see them using their greatest advantages, darkness and fear, against people and the other race. Something that brings the horror back into this series.
Hey guys that plot isn't the actual plot, a Fox Rep shot it down. From watching the interview what I took away from it was the focus of the movie won't be about the Alien, it will be about the Space Jockey and how the Aliens fit into the "Alien Universe" through the derelict and hopefully the "who, what, when, where, and why" behind the Aliens.
I agree Rick. Fear of the face hugger/xenomorph is a given. If they are in there, it will probably be late in the movie. This will do what 2001 didn't do. This will show us our creator/god (van daniken). Then, humans will steal gods fire, and the game is on.
Regarding Van Daniken. You guys should dig into the late Zecharia Sitchin's work with the Earth Chronicles series of books. I have them all and its several thousands of pages worth of reading on alternative human history and might shed some light on the movie if Prometheus does take a Van Daniken spin on it.
I heard there will be sequels to Prometheus that takes the genre in a whole new direction from where it has gone. This I think will be fascinating as long as our "harbingers of death" don't get deluded anymore.
We'll have all new aliens, the space jokey's race, and I'm sure they are a diverse group.
Check it out.
