    when did this story start for you?"

    He
    has been working on this for a long time, and it's also been a long
    time since he touched sci-fi. The genesis of a small idea that should
    have been explored.

    Ridley touches on how it has the DNA of
    Alien but the story evolved into something that heads to a whole new
    universe. If things go well there could be more.

  • open with a waterfall and swelling score

    "the king has his reign. When he dies, it's inevitable"

    see ships and shots of humans in pods.

    Seeing
    the team find clues, starting their journey to find something.
    searching thru dark caverns and discovering lots of alien tech and
    creepy looking images.

    The sizzle reel toward the end cuts to lots of action and explosions.

       They're on the storm planet, but something is wrong. It's not what they thought and things are going wrong.

  • When people ask what Prometheus is, Charlize
    says she almost feels like she's in the CIA and has to lie about what
    she's doing. Once had to describe it as a "romantic comedy"

    Knew it. Esoteric fantasy pseudo science fiction. It's basically the reverse idea of what we already had in AvP in the pyramid. Didn't like it then, not going to like this now. But the film will be great, I'm sure.

    You're giving me a boner Jonesy!
  •  Charlize -
    even though she could be considered to the lead actress in the film she
    says you can't really think about it that way. Theres something about
    being around the whole cast that is wonderful...except Michael
    Fassbender.
    Jonesy you little shit..you're staying right here
  • Fassbender plays a "robot" named David who is more or less impersonating a human.

    He gets to try and play it kinda straight
    Jonesy you little shit..you're staying right here
  • Do robots piss? Fassbender says yes, but only to make humans feel comfortable..
    Jonesy you little shit..you're staying right here
  • cast is taking twitter questions...
    Jonesy you little shit..you're staying right here
  • Do the advances in CG in this scifi horror genre help?

    awnser

    The original alien had a tall guy in a suit
    where as now you can do anything on the computer. CG is far more
    expensive he feels that the more practical you get the less bored with
    the genre you get...however, at the end of the day its all about having
    an original idea to utilize either CG or practical effects

    Jonesy you little shit..you're staying right here
  • Twitter Q: What does Fassbender smell like? directed towards Charlize...she says, musk, chile and a little mint

    So you would prefer them randomly landing on a planet then?

  • Twitter Q: was it difficult returning to a genre you haven't worked in in decades?

    Ridley: for me to come back to continue to work period is an honor and a pleasure

    When the Prometheus crew arrives and awakens them, they begin to change, even becoming metal and forming a ship of their own.

    We see what appears to be the space jockey as well and it looks like it might even be alive and moving.
