Iguess I am having a geek moment, because the trailer looks amazing. This is a Ridley Scott joint with write Damon Lindelof. Thetrailer looks amazing, if a little short. But, I love the factit only hints at what the story is about, thus giving us a guessinggame as to the story elements.
Thismovie actually started out as a direct prequel to Alien, but Scottchanged his mind. The wiki page states that this story will playwithin the universe of Alien, but will be standalone. I'm not sure Ibuy that because the “Space Jockey” from the first movie clearlymakes an appearance.
FromWiki, ((Thefilm will focus on a mythology within the Alien universe.Set in the late-21st century, Prometheus willexplore the advanced civilization of anextraterrestrialrace responsiblefor the origins of modernhumans onEarth, aswell as the background of the Aliencreature whichmade its first appearance in the 1979 film))
I'mthinking there will be more of a connection to the first movie thanScott is letting people believe.
Anyonethat knows me are fully aware how much I love Alien. I thinkof that first film as an art-house horror movie. It is wonderfullycrafted with a great soft ending that suits it well. To top it off,Jerry Goldsmith's score is suits the film, (I still think they shouldhave used some of Goldsmith's rejected cues and tracks in thedirector's cut).
~Thetransport units certainly have style as the units in Aliens andAlien.
~Ifreaking love the design of the spacesuits. Clearly a nod toAlien.
~Theship has that worn feel as the Alien movie had.
~Theslow appearance of the title letters is clearly a tribute to theAlien movie from 79. Plus, the sonar (screaming) sound effectis clearly homage to Alien trailer.
