Just so long as the creatures inside don't resemble these

In my opinion the saucer thing is going to play a big part in the movie.
We only caught a glimpse of it, while having our attention diverted onto other details more than once.
If this is not the case, then it will be something left behind, exactly like the Derelict and the SJ in Alien, but I don't think that Scott & co are going to repeat the mistake. Unless their plans are actually on a Prometheus prequel, rather than a sequel, but that seems silly.
Ridley Scott will eventually tell us how the Queen was born.
Right now we have the Deacon; coming soon the Mercury, the May and the Taylor.

I indeed to hope it has some more relevance than a mere footnote and in fact bares an important role in the whole mythology of the film. Its one of many areas i'm dying to know more about.

at the time Close Encounters May have been "Mainstreem Hollywood" but for the time it was all the same... one Kick Ass Film.

agreed sparty i love that film just thought the aliens could of been a bit less cheesy lol
Kane77OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:21 AM
somebody here did a fine job and edited the foto from the trailer.
There you can see this saucer seems to be from far advanced culture..
alteredstate.OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:24 AM
Its hard to get a sense of scale with the waterfall but i'm guessing its enormous.
GrindolfOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:32 AM
Some of the other shots from the trailer of an under lit SJ ship suggest that this saucer houses the space jockey ship, other shots also seem to be them standing on it , shaw says "We wont have a home to go back to" on top of it I believe as it opens, at the same time the space jockey ship starts up its flying process, then the Prometheus flies into it and it comes crashing back down...from there who knows
JPOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:36 AM
The humanoid it leaves behind presumably is the humanoid in teh cave drawings - Weyland years later gets this information / steals it / or is the SJ in some way?, and in amongst curing cancer, inventing FTL, androids, at last gets teh opportunity to travel back to face the gods (in hiding) and cause mayhem. Gods knowtheir game is up, try to dispatch a cargo of our xeno friends to Earth - David (Weyland's son) prevents, doublecrossing his maker, SJ crashes, get sinfected etc etc

mmmmm all intriguing stuff and looking forward to finding out.
Constealltion88OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:46 AM
I think that we won't know till the last 10 of the movie. Out of everything that is hinted, noted, or shown in the trailers, the saucer scene I feel is the most open ended part of the film.
MentosOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:49 AM
I think it will be part of a sequence showing the SJ's terraforming a planet.
alteredstate.OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:51 AM
good theory mentos but is the planet earth?
Constealltion88OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:53 AM
Has anyone else noticed how gnarly the back of the "kings" head looks during the water fall scenes? Looks like someone went clawhammer on his dome.
Kane77OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:56 AM
yeah, he looks def unhealthy..
MentosOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:59 AM
[b]@alteredstate.[/b] Possibly! I remember in one of the original leaked "scripts" (probably a fake) BUT it stated that the opening of the film depicted a earth being terraformed. I think after the recent 15minute press screening that's probably off the table.
I think the shot probably shows more Sj's arriving OR arriving to terraform LV-223.
alteredstate.OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:06 AM
Its hard to say when it appears in the film iv'e heard nothing to suggest its at the opening.
MentosOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:06 AM
Anyone else seeing this?
alteredstate.OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:08 AM
Cool is it genuine we get a lot of those in the south of england genuine as in an official crop circle mystery as opposed to a photoshop job.?
Ghost SolitareOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:43 AM
It's all going to depend on the position of that sequence in the film. What if that is not the beginning of the film. What if it's the end? Ha the maps were saying, um done here, we're going here next seeya!

I hate admitting they were...But They Were.

WhyDontTheyFreezeHimOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 12:15 PM
@Constealltion88 - Yeah, I noticed that too. Looks like a little chunk has been taken out of his head and scarred over or something. I cant help thinking that the blue guy and space jockeys are different species(even though theres no evidence) and that the saucer is the blue guys ship and the derelict is the space jockeys ship. The 'style' of the two match that way.
Space jockeys = good
Blue guys = bad
alteredstate.OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 12:36 PM
@ whydontThey freeze him....If that is the case that would be very cool indeed and may account for the promise by ridley of showing something we haven't seen before .
Another thing i cant help thinking about is this special project ridley has had Giger working on adding to the fact of the statement made that he is locking the best stuff away, or is the head design's his work / the interior of the head room and jockey chair is based on gigers work but what is this special project ?
. i am positive that's what he has elaborated on sometime ago regarding gigers involvement but since that statement was made no one when given the opportunity has pulled him up on it.
chthonOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 12:52 PM
The SJs are Prometheus, the blue guy is the Gods and humans are the eagle sent to annoy SJs and kill xenos using only our female warriors (as a token of disrespect).

Grindolf said on the previous page - [i]Some of the other shots from the trailer of an under lit SJ ship suggest that this saucer houses the space jockey ship, other shots also seem to be them standing on it, shaw says "We wont have a home to go back to" on top of it I believe as it opens, at the same time the space jockey ship starts up its flying process, then the Prometheus flies into it and it comes crashing back down...from there who knows[/i]
Grindolf, I'm guessing you've only watched the quick cutting trailer shots, rather than the 'slowed down' version or actual stills from the trailer?
...because just so you know, the footage actually shows that Shaw is standing on the GROUND in front of a walled 'pyramid' as it opens underneath her...and the opening 'plates' she's standing on seem to match the ones seen above the underlit 'derelict' in the trailer...meaning it's hidden underground.
Personally, I'm hoping that the 'saucer' ISNT some kind of 'mothership'...as it's familiar rounded design seems at odds with the very weird, organic-looking 'derelict' ship design. I'm hoping that they were created by 2 totally different races...
When I first heard that this movie was going to focus on the 'space jockey', I hoped that we'd end up seeing more than one 'derelict'-style craft in this. One of the highlights for me will be seeing this unusually-shaped craft in flight!
[i]I also recall imagining that a gigantic, gnarly, spineless 'sea-urchin'-shaped 'mothership' would look good...with the 'derelict(s?)' emerging out from an opening in the bottom of it...but I'm equally satisfied with them being hidden underground![/i]
belladonnaOvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 6:44 PM
i thought it would be funny if the saucer fit in the cranny of the SJ ship since its kind of a horse shoe shape.
with their powers combined.... it creates captain planet! explains the blue-ish colored guy, captain planet just went bald is all.
yep, its the same guy alright.

I think we'll see more of the SJ's in the 2nd Prometheus movie ... Ridders said he'll be concentrating on the SJ's homeworld for the one ...
I also thought that the saucer belonged to another race too ... I posted this a while back to show at least 2 species/race ...
