OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:38 AMHas everyone seen the NEW TV spot #4? Ummm... what is up with the editing in of Prometheus's name in GIANT characters along with the Weyland logo on the side of the ship?? Its like they are advertising a moving van line! This looks completely ridiculous. I assume that this has simply been edited into the most recent promo spots for those who have no idea what this flick is about and need a visual cue to tell them the movie title refers to the name of a ship? Does anyone know what is up with this? Will the ship actually look like that in the final film cut? Here is a link to TV Spot 4. Its right in the opening scene....

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 12:33 PMgiant letters?? what about this size.. [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:43 AM(Laughs) Maybe they could add more text after the name - "...hey isn't that the title of that film a lot of people are talking about?"


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:45 AMProbably for visually impaired English reading space faring Aliens they might encounter along the way?? lolz... Its just awful !!


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:47 AMAgreed - at face value, the [u]size[/u] of it, rather than the [u]fact[/u] of it, does seem peculiar: [url=]Big Prometheus name plastered on the side of the ship.[/url]


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:47 AMWell, it is typical to have a ship's name printed on it's hull....... Can't see why a space ship should be any different.....

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:48 AMIt's probably specifically to give people on this forum something to complain about.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:49 AMSure Cypher.. But 20 or 30 foot tall letters? hahahah!


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:50 AMWonder what's written on the other side of the Ship...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:53 AMThe other side? "Enjoy your one way trip"


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:54 AM.....judging by your avatar...i am surprised it's something you should complain about.....just't imagine why a name on the side of a ship would upset anyone?.....would u be happer if it read "N O S T R O M O"..?


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:54 AMHave you seen the lettering and numbers on the side of a 20th Century Warship. Considering the size of this vessel, and the inherent pride they must feel it is only normal. I say if they want big letters then by God they shall have even bigger letters.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:58 AMWell, think about it this way. This is the first ship they'd sent that deep into space. That's an achievement to advertise in 30 foot lettering I reckon ;-)

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 10:58 AMHey Phil ... yeah we spoke about that a few threads back when that trailer came out ... can't think of the thread name now ... But like I said it doesn't follow the contours of the ship and it's been plastered on there using camera tracking because they haven't actually put a name on the ship at the moment ... I reckon they forgot lol ... all to do with POST though I reckon ;) ... on the 'to be added' list ... Oh and someone from the other thread said it was for WEYLAND ... so he got on the right ship ... lol ...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 11:01 AMProud builders! Didn't the "Sulaco" in Aliens have it's name plastered in hugh letters on it's side to? Pretty sure it did. Saturn 5 had "USA" in hugh letters on it also. It just seems the thing to do.

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 11:02 AMMaybe some of you are right.. When I think back, things would have been so much easier if they had painted D E A T H S T A R in 50km high letters in Star Wars. That would have saved Han all of that confusing dialogue.... and having to be corrected by the old man. : P Its STILL looks flipping ridiculous. Even Iranians have better photo shopping skills with failed missile test launches.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 11:03 AMThat's so in the sequel, the new team can stumble upon a giant burnt piece of metal plating with partial M-E-T-H on it and they will know they're on the right planet.


OvomorphMember1 XPMay-14-2012 11:26 AMI like the way you think Outlander...........David's head will still be there as well!!


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 11:28 AMYes because when they pack up to leave they might get on the wrong ship!


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 11:51 AMIt's a nautical tradition. Every ship has a name on the side of it. Stop complaining about nothing.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 12:02 PMIts a "nautical tradition"..... Wow.... No foolin !?? Gee.... Thanks mister. Geebus... The POINT was that is terrible art direction and it looks like it was rendered by an unpaid teenage summer intern. It looks disgusting.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 12:22 PMReminds me of "We brake for nobody" on Spaceball One
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 XPMay-14-2012 1:01 PM@bbrock33 ... Ez ... we're only complaining on how sh!t it looks ... NOT that it shouldn't have a name ... ;) ... @Kane ... lol ...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 2:29 PMSyphonox...had me lolz twice in one thread. pretty good on the side "fireproof windscreen" is there a "Cuddles on Board" sticker?


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-14-2012 2:36's a Watermark, that is not imprinted on the ship. The real imprintIng of the name is is closer to the front in smaller letters and darker texture.
