    I watched the trailer..... The "Alien" ship at the end, looks strikingly familiar....

    There is so much similarity to the original Alien movie.......

    I haven't seen the new movie, but I have an idea what the outcome is gonna be......:cool:

    But, I may be surprised and wrong :oops:

    In space, nobody can hear you SCREEAaa.... sign1

    True, but "Prometheus" brings up a time before firefly, when I was just but a wee lad, watching outstanding space battles.

    Not really a prequel:
    " ...they developed a separate story that precedes the story of Alien but is not directly connected to that franchise. According to Scott, though the film shares "strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak", and takes place in the same universe, Prometheus will explore its own mythology and ideas."
    But close enough. sign1

    In the first trailer you could clearly see the "bone ship" from Alien crashing. That's close enough to a prequel for me.

    They haven't developed a word for a movie that is "sidling" on another previous movies same reality. There ware many World War 2 movies, I don't know that sequel and prequel would apply, though timeline would. I like this franchise, and would welcome more movies in it's storyline. Sigourney hit the wall, and there is always more room in any universe for another story. Deep Space 9 couldn't be called a sequel or prequel to any of the Star Trek movies or series.

    I would got absolutely crazy if somehow, a series in this storyline was made, imagine that! It'll never happen though. :)

    Well, I screened Prometheus last night....
    It was profoundly disappointing.
    Only minutes into the movie I was mumbling to myself, under my breath, "stupid, stupid, stupid". If those were the best scientists and crew the Earth could muster, well then we deserve, as a species, to die.
    Whether this is the prequel to Alien, or not, on its own merits it stank, royally.
    Plot holes you could park a mountain in...
    Choppy editing...
    No suspense...
    No surprises...
    Horrid plot devices...
    Awful character development...

    *sigh* think I'll go watch the original Alien again to get the taste out of my eyes.

    I agree...I had a friend say,"Two hours of my life I'll never get back....." Major script problems...scientists not acting like scientists....looks good in 3D I'll bet.....
