Ridley Scott's Prometheus (Alien Prequel) Thread

posted by Davies on - last edited - Viewed by 4.6K users

Four leaked photos from the set of Ridley Scott's upcoming film Prometheus (aka the prequel to Alien) have been leaked. Observe and worship the following slices of awesomeness...

cave-450x335.jpgA cave of some sort. You may note that the walls have an H.R. Giger (the creator of the Alien creature) vibe to them. Also, please note that the tractor is not a part of a set but rather an asset of the production team.

entrance.jpgMankind discovers an ancient doorway built by the mysterious Space Jockey race (whose skeletal remains were seen in the original Alien). Note the hieroglyphics surrounding the archway.

prometheus_set3.jpgThis is the secondary arch, just beyond the entrance shown in the pervious photo. Note the scale of the set against the chair towards the lower portion of the photo, this set is fucking epic!

prometheus_set_2.jpgWe're now through the second archway and standing in the main chamber. All three of the above photos are displaying one massive, glorious set. You may notice that we're certainly not in Kansas anymore, but inside the genius mind of H.R. Giger. The franchise hasn't looked this close to its source material since Ridley's original '79 masterpiece...

SpaceJockey.jpgThis is the Space Jockey set from the original Alien. It looks rather similar to the leaked photo above, yes?

  • Is that real? Either it is and wasn't proofread, or it's a well done fake. (on my laptop; couldn't really tell)

    edit: well enough sites are covering this that it looks real.

  • Well some people seem to be sure that this is a Alien prequel now, but I am still not sure however if it is I don´t think it will be what people think. But am I excited ?? HELL YEAH :)

    Well, it depends on your definition of a prequel...

    Will there be the Giger Alien as we know it? Nope, but we will see traces of the creature's DNA.

    Is Prometheus set in the same universe as Alien? Absolutely, without a doubt. It's also likely to confirm that Blade Runner is a part of that universe too.

    Will we see the Space Jockey species and the derelict craft from Alien? 100% positive. The leaked trailer confirms that (there are a few shots of a pre-derelict craft in flight and a very brief shot of the Space Jockey sat in the same chair as seen in Alien).

    From my perspective; this is definitely a prequel to Alien. It's undoubtedly a film about the mysterious Space Jockey species.

    Aye, it's rather tasty ain't it?:D

    For those who aren't aware or still, for some insane reason, doubt Prometheus' link to Alien; listen to the soundtrack to Alien's trailer...

    ... more than a subtle nod, yes? Also note the way that both the title for Alien and Prometheus slowly unravels in exactly the same way in both trailers.

    Yeah if that´s the case that this is indeed about the the Space Jockey species then I am even more excited.

    It is. Fact. :)

  • Fox has released the hi-res versions of the previously seen stills from Prometheus.

    Of particular note is the image below. Look towards the lower right and you'll spot a dead Space Jockey on the floor (it's legs and torso are visible). Further more, it appears that the two crew members (Noomi Rapace and Katie Dickie) are examining the head of the dead creature, was this Space Jockey decapitated? Also note the size of the creature; seeing one of these beings alive, towering over the human crew, is going to be stunning.

    Blasphemy and bullshit. Ridley can't touch Philip K. Dick.
