Prometheus Trailer, Ever since Ridley Scott started talking about his first foray back into science fiction since 1982?s Blade Runner, the geekosphere has been all Twitterpated over whether the film is, in fact, a prequel to Alien. First it was. Then it wasn’t. Then it was again, kinda. Well, now Scott has unveiled his first real peek at the film, and there should be no doubt: Prometheus is definitely a prequel to Alien.
Exhibit A: The photo to the right. Any Alien fan will tell you that is the seat of the “space jockey,” the giant humanoid creature the puny humans in Alien come upon before they’re beset by the phallic-headed (and mouthed) extraterrestrial monstrosity that bleeds acid and occasionally mixes it up with the dreadlocked dudes from Predator.
Those creatures definitely don’t show up in the new Prometheus trailer (and it sounds like they won’t be showing up in the film, either). But the mere fact that Scott chose to show us the space jockey’s fancy barcalounger – let alone the other obvious, direct homages to Alien – should put all that speculation about the connection between the two films finally to rest. I mean, it won’t, but it should.
