    Looks like the "ribs" on the Space Jockey is just a bio-mechanical seatbelt.




    AHA! THE VILLAIN IS REVEALED!

    There is a still within the trailer of what looks like a face-hugger attacking someone in what looks like a cryo tube; I can't tell if it's Theron or Rapace, but it definitely looks like a woman.

    SWEETNESS!!! Still are we being led to believe that the alien race was going to go to earth and let loose the xenomorph? Which there is an apparent version at 1:37 in the trailer.

    Awesome, but it's a prequel. Straight up prequel.

    and I think we are being lead to believe that the jockey in Alien is actually one of the crew...Fassbender perhaps?

    Problem is that Fassbender's character David is a synthetic. I doubt a parasitic organism would have much use for him.

    EDIT - Not to mention, he's not bloody 20 feet tall.

    Compare that picture to this one:

    [image=http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/io9/2011/12/whoisthat-1.jpg]

    He is tall. Perhaps changed if that is an infected human. I think I have a guess as to what is going to happen here. But I'll think about it.

    God this looks amazing. I'm looking forward to this more than TDKR, Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man and the Hobbit.

    Looking forward to this movie more than any I can think of in a long time.
    I'll definitely be seeing this at a midnight showing somewhere.

    So...who's got a leaked copy? I can't trust the sites that boast having it.

    Edit:

    [image=http://www.wearysloth.com/Gallery/ActorsH/7836-422.gif] I prefer the term "artificial person" myself.

    The marketing for this movie has been awesome, I seriously it delivers what it looks like it will.

    I hope this is the proper thread. I thought there was another updated recently.

    A couple of hints on Prometheus sequel and Bladerunner

    Prometheus 2

    Director Ridley Scott offers these hints for the sequel, which certainly ties in with the movie's suggestion that Shaw and David are headed to the Engineers' home planet:
    I hadn't done sci-fi for so long and I enjoyed doing it. Plus, when it comes to the Alien world, no one else had addressed the origin question and I thought that was interesting to tackle. Prometheus evolved into a whole other universe. You've got a person [Noomi Rapace's Elizabeth Shaw] with a head in a bag [ Michael Fassbender's David] that functions and has an IQ of 350. It can explain to her how to put the head back on the body and she's gonna think about that long and hard because, once the head is back on his body, he's dangerous.
    So that's the sequel?
    [Laughs] I wish it was that easy. They're going off to paradise but it could be the most savage, horrible place. Who are the Engineers?

    Blade Runner Sequel

    Ridley Scott also briefly confirms that he is indeed still working on the sequel to Blade Runner, specifically whether the movie will bring back its original star — who, just so you know, is definitely a replicant now:
    It's not a rumour – it's happening. With Harrison Ford? I don't know yet. Is he too old? Well, he was a Nexus-6 so we don't know how long he can live [laughs]. And that's all I'm going to say at this stage

    Eh. I don't know. Perhaps Ridley Scott should just leave well enough alone before he becomes as big a joke as George Lucas?

    Anyone picked up the Blu-Ray? I splurged for the 4-disc set so I could get the documentary, which is extraordinary (the runtime is something like 3 hours & 45 minutes, with an additional hour's worth of video accessible through pop-up capsules).

    Haven't finished watching it all yet (about halfway through, doing it in stages) but, as one might expect, it's very thorough (including a look at some great costume tests and a brief screen test/proof of concept video they shot in some factory). In many cases you're even there when they make some of the decisions that ultimately proved to be bad in the film ;).

    The sets on the film are mighty impressive, I must say. It's not something we've really seen on films like this in a very long time, in this age of green screen.

    Deleted scenes are interesting, but only add a little- the alternate Fiefeld creature attack is much, much better than the cheap zombie version in the film. And the alternate/extended Engineer.Shaw fight is pretty good too.

    The two bits of most interest is an extended version of the David/Engineer/Weyland scene and a brief scene with the scientist that later gets killed by the cobra-worm, where he's all giddy about a smaller worm creature he finds earlier. This at least explains his attitude and stupidity around the cobra worm a little.

    I found a lot of explanations in the deleted material. Makes me wish it was in the feature film. ;)

    I quite liked the alternate Engineer/Shaw fight, and the extended cut of David/Engineer/Weyland. Gives the Engineers a level of non-monstrous behaviour. These were on the iTunes Extras; no documentary though, I believe.

    edit: Same here, Quixotic! Really wish we get an EE of this film eventually, which seems likely enough. I mean, if we can get a pointless EE of Gladiator, surely a film that actually benefits from its deleted scenes is OK :p

    Well, directing a movie that wins Best Picture always helps with that sort of thing.
