    I really like how distinct each of the faces are.. 

    they could have easily given them all the same facial prosthetics

    So, anyone want to try and decipher the writing on the seal? :)

    The elder Engineer dude has a very similar facial structure to a Mayan or someone from middle/south america

    You're right


    Also it's interesting that the robes have various colours.
    yellowish and skyblue
    maybe we'll see some pink robed elders (=

    I bet there is something behind the color of their robes(pure speculation). His face looks like stone. His expression to me says: "I'm too old for this shit".

    Or a tree, upside down.
    Like in tree of life.

  • The small circle represents the engineer drinking the goo and next to that is the waterfall/stream with it leading out to the oceans full of proto life and the Engineers DNA.

    Perhaps, it also looks a bit like cuneiform writing, but also a bit like the vertical structuring of glyphs. Could be both, easily. I'm wondering though how far they took it with creating the symbols. We know they did quite a bit of work on "creating" the engineer language, hence my curiosity .. did they also apply that to writing.

  • There is a better shot of the opening scene at 0:05 in this video. It's quite quick, but it's there.

    They all have a very similar facial structure to the Aryan archetype. That's basically what they are in my opinion - the National-Socialist view of European ancestors.

    How old must these elder engineers be? I mean, the main ones in the movie have a glad skin like marmer, and these are all wrinkled. Not the perfect image we were shown of an engineer in the theatrical cut.
  • The different ways the older faces of the engineers wrinkle really makes a broader distinction between human and engineer! I like it a lot.
    I hope the scene matches up...
    Let your body become the dirt! Your blood become the waters. May your soul become their way back to us.

    Again, I'm not too fond of the new scene, they look too human. The original sequence was perfect and wonderfully ambiguous, they didn't have to change anything. But hey let's wait and see.

    Where did you get these, I've only seen stills? Yes I agree, Flavio, also the fact that this scene from what I can tell feels a bit Star Trek-ish for some reason like a vulcan ritual lol. Anyways I still look most forward to seeing all of the extended scenes including this one.

    Whoa alternate ending, I wonder if they just mean the extended axe battle or something else.

    I think you mean we look too much like the Engineer race.  ;)
