OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 8:39 AMOk forgive me if this has been debated before feel free to lock if it has but just what is the relevance of the saucer by the waterfall ? Is it merely a footnote of previous visitations of alien race's in human history to highlight the search for our beginnings, or is there a deeper element to this fascinating footage.? Could it be a mother ship that houses the derelict type craft or does it have even greater significance ?. All speculation and Theories will be appreciated if it hasn't been discussed to death already. I must have missed that debate if it has been.

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 9:36 AMThem bloody UFO's get everywhere, cant even go to another world and there in the way lol


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 9:43 AMJust so long as the creatures inside don't resemble these [img][/img]


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 9:50 AMIn 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.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 9:57 AMI 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.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 9:59 AM[quote]Just so long as the creatures inside don't resemble these[/quote] Hey alteredstate at the time Close Encounters May have been "Mainstreem Hollywood" but for the time it was all the same... one Kick Ass Film.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:00 AMagreed sparty i love that film just thought the aliens could of been a bit less cheesy lol


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:21 AMsomebody 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.. [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:24 AMIts hard to get a sense of scale with the waterfall but i'm guessing its enormous.


OvomorphMember0 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


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:36 AMSpeculation ahoy.... 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


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:36 AMmmmmm all intriguing stuff and looking forward to finding out.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:46 AMI 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.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:49 AMI think it will be part of a sequence showing the SJ's terraforming a planet.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:51 AMgood theory mentos but is the planet earth?


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:53 AMHas 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.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 10:56 AMyeah, he looks def unhealthy..


OvomorphMember0 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.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:06 AMIts hard to say when it appears in the film iv'e heard nothing to suggest its at the opening.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:06 AMAnyone else seeing this? [IMG][/IMG]


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:08 AMCool 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 Solitare

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:43 AMIt'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!


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 11:49 AM[quote]agreed sparty i love that film just thought the aliens could of been a bit less cheesy lol[/quote] I hate admitting they were...But They Were.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 12:04 PMyup it's swamp gas


OvomorphMember0 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


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.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 12:52 PMThe 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).


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 5:47 PMGrindolf 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' 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]


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 6:44 PMi 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. [img][/img] [img][/img] yep, its the same guy alright.

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-14-2012 9:47 PM@Cervantes ... 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 ... [b]Saucer Markings (Enhanced):[/b] [img][/img]
