Prometheus - Alien Prequel

The Alien Prequel has been confirmed for a while now and on IMDb as 'Untitled Alien Prequel' but it's been given a name now along with the first official trailer.


Regards,
Jake.

Looks interesting, think i saw a shot of Mala'Kak in there so that will be something.
Here's hoping he doesn't do to Alien what Abrams did to Star Trek.
Though i doubt it as Scott directed Alien and he wouldn't stand for the complete bastardisation of this legendary franchise.

Michael Fassbender always makes things awesome. This was awesome already.

Now it's totally awesome.

All of this has happened before.

Just keep in mind that they may not be going for direct prequel with this one (time-wise yes it will be, but content wise maybe not.)

If when this comes out there are elements which clash with the original franchise, don't be entirely surprised because they are entering this with that possibility in mind.


Though when considering things about this upcoming movie, I would urge looking to its official site for more information rather than go by pure speculation alone.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Indeed. Thank you for pointing us to that. It would seem Mala'Kak 'is' the film, centering around him.
Though am still a little dubious as to the nature (such as using the Alien Xenomorphs rather than creating entirely new ones) and ultimate realisation, when it comes.
We shall see.

Ridley Scott has said that there will definitely be no xenomorphs in this film.

All of this has happened before.

Unless i read incorrectly, the website Darkreever provided states otherwise.

IIRC, he said that point blank, himself, in an interview. He wouldn't give any description of what 'alien' is to feature in the film, but he said that it would definitely not be a xenomorph as we know it.

Perhaps it *could* be a xenomorph of a type different from what there has been in the past, and *perhaps*, since humans are travelling to this place, xenomorphs could be created - but all of that *is* speculation. All we do know is that Scott said no xenomorphs (with specific reference to what we've already seen in the other films).

All of this has happened before.
