Ridley Scott's Prometheus - Sequel gets new writer

Recommended Posts

There's a convincing seeming plot spoiler in the comments for that article, so you might want to be cautious in case it's not just another fake. I didn't read it past the start though, so don't come crying if it turns out to be as stupid and ludicrous as Gaylien.

BAAARP! *fade*

BAAARP! *fade*

BAAARP! BAAARP!

I just pressed play and my girlfriend asked if I was watching Inception or Battlefield 3 trailers.

I'll be honest though, I kind of like it when things go BAAAAAAAAAARP.

The trailer, from what I could make out, looked great.

It's not as stupid as the Gaylien script and if true, it is a much more ambitious film than Alien. However I can see people having major problems with how it ties into the existing films.

Sorry, what's the title of the comment? All I can see is people arguing about grammar

Link is blocked for me, could someone summarise the spoiler (in spoiler tags OBVS).

The thing that I saw was that

Prometheus is meant to be set along with Alien in the same Universe as BladeRunner...which makes sense to me in a surprising way since the Alien saga shares a very obvious link with BladeRunner. But this may be just bollox, I dont read that site often...interesting none the less.

I still have huge doubts about the wisdom of making the film (money aside), but that trailer's fantastic mainly on account of the soundtrack. I wonder if they'll throw caution to the winds and score it all like that; it might be the effect of the cheap reproduction but it sounded obscenely great, like Adam from the early Ants copulated with Bernard Herrmann and their mutant offspring had its vocal cords replaced by a foghorn. Crazily good, but probably bound not to last. I do hope they take some genuine risks with this one, and the score and sound design in general will have to be something special, something not entirely derivative, for this to work. Perhaps they just might do it after all.

Supposed plot description from AICN comment's under the leaked trailer article.

Very detailed, so do not read if you do not want the film spoiled for you. Btw, totally different to what Handsome Light Brown has posted.

Humans discover an ancient temple which suggests Mankind was "seeded" by a race of Engineers. Travelling to their homeworld they are sucked into a wormhole where they discover the race is far from extinct. Shit happens, with the Engineer's able to change the very DNA of organic and non-organic matter. They turn some of the crew into PROTOFORMS (Alien's) and the Android, turning human, becomes the template for Mankind itself! At the film's end the Derelict we know from Alien is seen crashing on LV-WhateverTheNumber Was.

I dunno. It sounds mental enough that I think it might be good but I can see the Alien fanboys going crazy at this "They were humans in the beginning!" twist.

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/22584/some-big-2012-trailers-hitting-shortly?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=DH+News

The first trailers for Ridley Scott's "Prometheus", the action sequel "G.I. Joe: The Retaliation", the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy "The Dictator" and the Jeremy Renner-led "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" should be hitting either cinema screens or online imminently.

While the MPAA doesn't make ratings classifications for trailers available freely through their website, various groups in other countries and territories outside the United States do. One such group is the Culture and Community Services department in the Canadian province of Alberta who handily include an official page for the dozen or so trailers for major theatrical releases it classifies every week.

Over the past 2-3 weeks they've added around thirty new trailers to the list. Since their inclusion more than half of them have come online including the first trailer for "The Cabin in the Woods"; the second trailers for "John Carter", "Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close," "The Grey," "The Iron Lady" and "The Lorax"; and in just the last day or so the first trailers for "The Five-Year Engagement" and "The Three Stooges".

What's interesting are the ones that haven't been released yet and are expected to hit sooner rather than later (as in the next week or two). Along with those four 2012 titles mentioned above we can also expect to see a first trailer for animated sequels "Ice Age 4" and "Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted", the ensemble pregnancy-themed comedy "What To Expect When You Are Expecting", and a second trailer for "Battleship".

In other trailer news, RyanSeacrest.com reports that the first trailer for the film adaptation of Broadway musical "Rock of Ages" will be attached to copies of "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows"
