They paused it basically right as he was being picked up and taken downstairs, then didn't put it on till the ambulance showed up.

I have a few questions that I either didn't catch or understand:


Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)

1) Where did the facehugger come from? I got that Charlie impregnated Shaw cause he was infected...but what about the one that killed the biologist?

2) Are we to presume then that the space jockey from the original series is from another failed ship?

Didn't like it too much. Felt like the whole movie was in the trailer.

I'm going to assume a lot of things here, because I feel like that's how the movie was designed. 1) The canisters were bio weapons. Assuming from holloways contact and the eye worm, the canisters leaked those small worms and the atmosphere was ripe for them to grow rapidly.

2) NO ****ING CLUE. The one question I wanted answered. Here is my thoughts. The engineers and humans share the same DNA. We learn from past aliens that the face hungers impregnate and that embryo takes on the form of the host, like the dog alien and the proto- alien at the end of Prometheus. So, if the crashed ship on LV-426 is from shaw then it makes sense that the xenomorphs look how they do and if you're assuming this then it can be inferred that shaw still had an embryo in her, as evidence other constantly clutching herself( could also be due to the stitches) and why the message broadcast is a warning to not go tithe ship.

1) I suppose that's a possibility.

2) Holy sheeeet. If Shaw and the original space jockey are connected in any way mind = blown. I can't wait for the sequels haha!

Haha yeah, it took me a good while to formulate that connection, albeit possibly false one.

Movie was absolutely fantastic. Loved every moment of it. It is definitely a must see in Imax. Whoever complained about the 3D... I really don't know why. The 3D was VERY limited in DoF. The worst part of the 3D was the introductory Imax sequence which burned my eyes. The actual movie itself was hardly even noticeable to be in 3D apart from the HUD displays and such.

I really, really, really hope Ridley Scott makes some sequels to this.

ok so what did David say to the engineer?

I need help remembering how the engineer reacted to Shaw being hit in the stomach

I remember him looking over as it happened but i'm not sure if he looked upset about it

If so i'm thinking that action plus what david said is the reason he wanted to eliminate the human race

thoughts?

the engineers created us as an experiment and then realised we had potential, then they gave us technology and we started abusing it to kill each other. So, instead of sacrificing ourselves to help others, self sacrifice is all through this movie, we started killing each other to the disdain of the engineers. Enroure to eliminate us some **** happened and the toxin got out. I'm pretty sure the engineer was just pissed that his failed creations, who caused their demise in the first place by causing the agent to escape, were there.
what I got out of it.

Character development was one of the greatest aspects of the movie. Every single person in that film came from different social perspectives and were all encountered with the harsh reality of life. Every traumatic experience actually really shaped everyone's character in to something different from how they were originally represented. Many of the characters toyed with differing philosophical views which also changed as events occurred in the film.

Again, film was fantastic. I'm going to be going again so I can translate a few things better. Any fans of Blade Runner or Alien knows the undertones Ridley Scott is so incredible at layering in his films. This film is no different. You can't possibly get everything out of it in one viewing.

The resulting crash frees the xenomorphs or opens the container where all the pods are laid.

I guess if it's not a faithful prequel they dont need to go with either but thats my gut feeling (b). Part of the reason why planet of the apes was pretty successful was the fact that it had those little tid bits that put you into the universe and gave you background knowledge on how the world is taken over. I guess i'd like to know more about the xenomorphs background really.

The tie in to make it a true prequel simply needs to be the Space Jockey's, and references (such as the Weyland Industries tie in already existing, the Space Jockey as it's already featured in ALIEN, and some reason the SJ would create the Xenomorph).

First: Ridley Scott already said we won't see the Xenomorph. The movie stands alone, and by itself.
Second: It's a prequel in the sense it explores the Space Jockey we already saw in the chair which makes it cannon.

All they need to do, and probably will do, is show you the ship we already saw crashed in ALIEN and it's automatically tied together. If the ship was going to Earth, as mentioned in the most recent preview, then we know it never makes it there. Why it crashed on LV-426 we don't even have to know. We just know it didn't make it there, and it was carrying the Xenomorph for some reason to exterminate us.

We didn't shoot it down, or The Company (which you already know is what Weyland Industries becomes) would have known it was there before Ripley encountered them in ALIEN. In the Directors Cut of Aliens you find out that they colonized the planet AFTER Ripley's encounter, and knew about them being there from that (a missing part in the original release).

I think some people are going to be upset thinking we're going to see the Xenomorph, etc, but that's not what this movie is about. It's about this race that can create such a monstrocity, and why they did. It's completely stand alone, but it's got that Alien DNA and exists in the verse.

They'll toss us a bone so we go "Oh, so that's why the Space Jockey had the Xenomorph on the ship", and we'll probably see the ship before **** hit the fan and it crashed. That's all we'll see, though.

1. - 1:38 - looks like alien (it looks like the xenomorph patterened on the wall. So maybe they are behind that door and the crash sets them free?)
2. - 2:04 - nav chair from alien where the creature with the burst chest is found and the alien is walking towards it.
3. - 2:04 - the picture of the alien with the snout in the chair
4. 2:05 - looks like a girl in a pod with a face hugger over her
5. 2:13 - human running away from ship as it fall down sideways which means that it is crashing and they are there

the 1979 Alien trailer shows.
:52 is the same exact ship fallen sideways!

Ok, so what i think is the story line from the trailers, information and previous movies.

They find signs/glifs of this alien species and a map leading to their location. For some reason this ship is stuck on this planet either because it crashed or it is dormant. When the people come upon the ship, they activate it and eventually the jockeys awake. The purpose of this ship is a vessel that harvests life across the universe or some doomsday biological lab thing. Either way one person gets infected by an organism on this ship (not a xenomorph) that transforms them. Hence the scene where one guy is jumping onto another from atop the burning ship in the cargo bay looks all alien (Trailer). It looks like the main "monster" is a creature that transforms you when you are infected. Then the people find out that the jockeys plan to go to earth to either harvest, or destroy or harvest and destroy and they mean to stop it. "hence the line we will not have an earth to come back to" They go about this by trying to bring down the ship and maybe a facehugger is set loose and infects the jockey. They try to escape from the ship after sabotaging it and it crashes sideways or the xeno is bursting from the chest of the jockey and it crashes. At this point there is probably only one person, maybe two left alive. The movie ends with the person "probably the main chick" goes into stasis and drifts into space ... as she is drifting off into space they pan back to the partly dead jockey in the nav chair as the xeno bursts from his chest. End movie. Either way i expect one chest burst scene at the very end of the movie.

now the reason why either one or two people escape or a ship transmission is due to the fact that the android in alien was programmed to capture the creature and bring it back. Wayeland finds out about alien by discovering the ship or a transmission and learning their story.
Again THIS IS MY HUNCH NOT FACT!!!





I'm pretty impressed with myself when it comes to guessing the movie.
