Why would it be unlikely that they are on LV426?

Also, you can see clearly in the trailer and the original Alien/Aliens, that the ship you see exploding and toppling in this movie IS the same ship. it's a U-shaped ship. In fact, I remember having Aliens toys, and this exact U-shaped ship is the same thing.

I think they are on LV426, the ship crashes for whatever reason (which is why they find it crashed on LV426 in Alien and Aliens). Perhaps they do go to the alien races home planet or something, but I think the crash shown is obviously on LV426 (there were rumors about the script that the humans take something and try to get away and are pursued by the SJ, maybe culminating in clash and crash on LV426).

Also, I forgot about the distress signal that the Nostromo picks up. Interestingly, they did describe it as a warning to stay away. I think it will wind up that someone from the Prometheus crew sets the signal, maybe at the end of the movie, to warn others to stay away.

Also, I would bet money that those initial scenes you see with humans and water and what not is actually Earth. In the trailer, they mention finding pictagrams in caves, like the alien-figure pointing to a group of stars or planets. I'm thinking the SJ race is one that creates or spreads life, or something, and they put humans on Earth, which is why humans have made drawings of them pointing to the group of stars/planets that they come from.

The Xenomorphs are designed to wipe out an indegnious population and restore some sort of odd balance to the Galaxy.

Thats why they can combine with most anything. They live in an extreme conditions and can only populate as long as there are hosts. Their life cycle stalls at a point.

I do imply, though, that the ship seen crashed in both Alien and Aliens is going to be shown, to tie them together, which is likely as even Ridley Scott made a mention of one point fans will recognize a familiar ship.

It makes sense as we know from the current trailer that they head from the SJ location towards Earth, but obviously they never get there.
Seems to me that they are on LV-426 and manage to stop the ship from taking off and leaving the planet.

But you could be very right. The climate of the planet sure changed from these trailers to Alien(s).

Either way, the crashed ship crashed on LV-426. While it's crashing, some characters from Prometheus are seen running away from it. So there's definitely some part of the movie on LV-426, unless some retarded scripting has them magically teleport the ship over.

We'll just have to wait for more trailers, and/or release. So far away for answers.

Most have good ideas, and none can be proven wrong. So we'll just have to wait and see.

I just think, though, since RS stated this will be more stand alone but feature that "Alien DNA" and little ties that bind we won't see LV-426 until the final moments to bring the story full circle.

Tick Tock.

I was thinking about that comment, too. That "Alien DNA"

Maybe that in itself is a reference. Maybe, as it appears to be, the aliens won't be featured much, but the "alien DNA" reference is that the Aliens are created or awakened or something at the end by the SJ, or perhaps the humans discover its genetic coding or something.

Either way, I think RS is downplaying how it ties in to the Alien series. Seriously, the Space Jockey and the ship and LV426 are obviously in it, Weyland and Weyland Industries are obviously in it, there are obviously androids in it, the Aliens WILL be featured in some way (those cylinder-eggs in front of the giant face and the way they are positioned is obviously a reference to an Alien hive), we know, presumably, from the first Alien that the SJ had chestburster. Perhaps even the Aliens will be in it much more than he has alluded to. Look at both this trailer and the trailer for the original Alien, they are very much the same (same music, same kind of suspense) and yet neither of them feature an Alien (it was before my time, but has anyone been around long enough to know if the Alien was even used in promotion of the movie, or did noone see what it looked like until the movie was released?). He said in an interview that there will be new monsters, so perhaps there will be at least Alien-like creatures (but like I posited before, they change depending on the host).

I think he's right, the movie will be able to stand alone as great and independent Sci-Fi horror film, and I think it will be very reminiscent of Alien. No cheap thrills, but legitimate suspense and fear. However, that doesn't mean that it WONT be an Alien movie. Think about it. Alien stands alone by itself as a great movie, but there were sequels. So, this maybe will be the same kind of thing, a stand alone movie that also directly sets up the following film (in this case Alien). They've said there will be nods to the people who have seen the original Alien, but that doesn't mean that they are mutually exclusive (as in, there will be references and events that you won't get unless you've seen Alien like we all have, but I think this movie will still, obviously, set up for Alien). Also, he said there will be "quite a few suprises". So, I think we will see some things, maybe, that we are being led not to expect, such as an appearance by an Alien.

I think it is good marketing. Much like the original. Release a trailer that is full of suspense (or like the original, posters with just an egg on it), and let that suspense and mystery promote it. I'm excited, because I think it will turn out much like the original, there are going to be alot of good, creepy, suspenseful moments (not the crap that was Alien Resurrection and AVP).

4 days...


I just saw the second trailer today for some godforsaken reason, and I'm 10x more excited. Just the trailer itself is intense.

2 parts of one of the trailers, I swear I a) saw a face hugger and b) thought once scene showed a reflected chest burster.

This is how I am after every trailer:

Prometheus is one of those rare movies where I am so excited for it that i pretty much refuse to watch any new trailers. i saw the first few teasers that came out for it, and i'm happy with just seeing those until i go see it.

As soon as it said where they were, I turned it off for fear of more spoilers as they went.

Reserved my ticket for tomorrows midnight showing.

Well, Ebert just gave it 4 stars:

http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/...IEWS/120609989

I tend to be a bit hit-or-miss with Ebert, but the review sounds extremely promising. Looks like Scott may finally be back on his A-game.

Was a bit more heady than I had anticipated, but a lot of the characters were meh. Didn't really feel any connection to anyone outside of the David and Shaw, Janek got better as it went, but besides that, I really enjoyed the movie. Don't see it in 3d, while it was cool, it was more of a distraction from the story than anything else. I'd say 8/10.

Always wondered how this worked... The story doesn't change, so how does it distract you from it?

I saw it in Imax 3D and I didn't find it distracting at all. That being said, I freaking loved the movie! It answered questions that have bugged the hell out of me from Alien, but at the same time it brought up a whole bunch of new ones. I'm definitely excited for a sequel!

What I meant was that the visual effects took away from my paying attention to the story. Partially my fault, guess I have a short attention span, but what I truly meant to say was that the 3d was not necessary, it was more added for oohs and ahs.

It should also be said that someone had a seizure right about half way through the movie and they stopped it for a good 15 minutes to handle the situation. Really killed the whole continuity of the film.

Regardless, go see this movie.
