Ok who else saw the live looking Space Jockey? :thumbup:

Also I'm wondering if the distress beacon detected by the crew in the first film was sent by Prometheus crew members. :think: Previously all we had to go on was the Space Jockey's but that seems unlikely now in light of them planning to go to Earth.

What if it were true?

Which Space Jockey scene are you referring to? Can't miss those. 😎 There was actually 4 very brief flashes of the Space Jockey. One of them was in the biomechanical suit in the pilot's chair; another when it looks like it's activating the pilot's chair; one where it's walking towards the pilot's chair; and another one where it's standing over Elizabeth Shaw, but you can only see its legs.

It could very well end up being the Prometheus crew that sets off that beacon. It'll be interesting to see if the crew makes it off the planet.....sadly, they'll probably end up being stranded there to die.

And here's yet another new trailer from WonderCon, with even more new scenes:

*salivating* over the release of this movie. :drool:

Interesting Q&A with Ridley Scott on Prometheus:

Good video. :thumbup:

My personal explanation for why Prometheus and Nostromo look different is that they serve different functions. The first seems to be a science ship so it would obviously need higher tech. The Nostromo was a mining vessel. It wouldn't need all the high tech stuff, just enough to "get the job done." So tv style monitors would be easier and cheaper than adding unnecessary tech.

What if it were true?

I'd like to think of it that way. 🙂 But it probably has a lot more to do with the fact that one was made in 1979 on a much lower budget, and the other was made in 2011 with money to burn.

Some images I found on the Xenopedia Space Jockey entry.
The second is VERY interesting. Look in the lower left corner.
