I didn't see anything that would have an affect on AvP. What did you read?

Something about how the Engineers hadn't made the Xenomorphs yet. Which would explain why they are not in Prometheus.

What if it were true?

*****WARNING*****SPOILER******

Well, there was a Xenomorph-like thing born (from the Space Jockey) at the end, but there's nothing to indicate that it was the first one.

It wasn't born like the others (snake-like), but almost the size of an adult human, which suggests that it might have been a queen.

So it could be the xenomorphs using the genetics of the host playing out as they seem to do. If it is indeed a Queen then this one coming from a Space Jockey would have some differences from the one that came from Ripley (as that one seemed to be a standard chest buster.) :think:

I'd read some talk about something bursting out of the Space Jockey at the end so maybe this explains the Queen in the second film. The rest of the aliens could be from the eggs found by Kane/the Jorden family. Eventually eggs could be moved from the derelict to the atmospheric processor or the Queen lays new ones. Either way bad news for the colonists. 😈

Is this film as open ended as you'd read? There seems like some potential for new prequels and have them lead into Alien. One idea could be getting a recording of the Space Jockey transmission then ship being programmed to look for similar from then on. Captain Dallas mentions the Nostromo computer being programmed for certain situations. Now with Prometheus we can at least theorize that the Company knew what to look for.

What if it were true?

Remember, during the inquest in 'Aliens', LV-426 is referred to as a planet, not a moon. Plus, at the Xenopedia site, the moon is referred to as "LV-223," although I don't recall them actually giving it a name in the movie.

And the Space Jockey dies in the Prometheus escape pod, not in the pilot's chair in his ship. So, all things considered, the crashed Space Jockey ship in this movie doesn't appear like the one found in the first Alien film.

And it ends with Shaw and David taking off in another Space Jockey ship, setting off to the home planet of the Space Jockeys to find out why they created Earthlings and then tried to destroy them. That doesn't leave very much of an open end. It appears they already know where they want to go with the next one, if there is a next one.

So when are you gonna go see it? After all the buildup we've been through on here, I'm surprised you haven't already! Laugh

Hopefully soon. I almost never go to the movie theater and usually catch things on HBO or some other channel. I finally had to give up waiting for some and watch them on cable (Iron Man & Star Trek.) But this one I don't want to wait that long.

So the planet Prometheus takes place on in NOT LV-426? That would explain the apparent signs of fossilization on the Space Jockey and the lack of eggs on the ship seen in this film. I guess this is what happens when they put out trailers and fans theorize for weeks. :mrgreen:

What if it were true?

I don't usually go to the movie theater that much either, unless it's a really good sci-fi or horror movie that I can't wait to see.

You can't miss the big screen 3-D in this one. It's beautiful. 😎

Warning!!! SPOILERS from this point on are to be expected.

I saw it today :dance: This was a great flick. :thumbup: Answers many of questions I had and we'd been theorizing about. For one the not finding eggs and no Xenomoprhs is because it's a different ship, not the same Derelict the crew found in Alien. Why does the planet not look the same...different piece of real estate. The trailer kinda gives away Prometheus crashing into the Space Jockey ship.

Some of my favorite moments were piecing together that David was "up to something." I noticed that he starts pushing on the carvings like he knew what he was doing. Shutting off his camera when he entered to "bridge" seemed like he was answering to someone other than Vickers. Which of course we know is true.

I agree. 😎 This was my first 3D movie and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. The screen really pops out but not in a way that's distracting. It actually makes you feel pulled into the scenes a lot more.

What if it were true?

I wish James Cameron would re-release 'Aliens' in 3-D. That'd be freakin' awesome. 😎

Oh yeah! 😎 Perhaps he'll do the same thing George Lucas is doing with the Star Wars films. Extra awsome space battles! Ok! :mrgreen:

Did you notice the carving of the Xenomorph Queen in the temple room? When they're looking around there's one on the wall. They of course don't know what it is, but I was glad to see it as it confirms they exist as of the film. I'd read rumors that they didn't until this one.

Interesting to see the Engineer's work on other bio weapons. The oil stuff would be very effective, more so than the Xenomorphs because by the time anyone notices something's wrong it's too late. Plus you can't shoot what you don't know is there.

I wonder what the Engineer Xenomorph would be like. Would it be larger and stronger? They seem to take on aspects of what they originate from.

What if it were true?
