    Prometheus Movie The new issue of EMPIRE Magazine hit newstands in the UK today and what a breathtaking piece it is for Prometheus fans and potential fans alike! The issue contains an 18-page feature on Prometheus with exclusive photos as well as an exclusive in-depth interview with director Ridley Scott. The article in the feature reveals many story and character elements that have long been speculated among fans but now have been pretty much confirmed. We’ll highlight a few things learned from this article and the said interview with Ridley Scott (potential spoilers ahead):

    1 – Old man Peter Weyland will very likely be a part of the Prometheus crew, and he sees himself as the Greek titan.
    2 - Next Prometheus viral will take the form of another advertisement but this time of David, the android.
    3 - Milburn, played by Rafe Spall, is a botanist.
    4 - Fifield, played by Sean Harris, is a geologist.
    5 - The Engineer, or the Space Jockey to most, is a 9-feet tall gray/blue skinned humanoid creature.
    6 - The “xenomorph” will likely make an appearance in the final minutes of the movie.
    7 - Ridley Scott is doing whatever it takes to release the most “aggressive” film he can.
    8 - Ridley doesn’t like us fans over-analyzing the film.

    Vickers has close links to two of Prometheus' passengers and has the biggest agenda? Interesting.

    Millburn is a botanist? Did not have much to do on a dead planet.

    Nice pic of Vickers on Earth.

    It's a winged 'W' (Weyland), it appears on nearly every item of clothing, spacesuits, etc.

    The one thing I noticed is that in almost all of the actor "interviews" or what not it refers to them being contacted about the new "ALIEN" film. The actors also seem to keep talking about ALIEN with Logan Marshall -Green even mentioning it's more of a mix of the first two films. Interesting comments to say the least. I still believe all of this RS pandering that it's not a "prequel" is complete BS.

    The way things are phrased regarding Holloway and Shav, and that they are a "team" it does sound like Holloway will be around for the majority of the movie.

     

    Question then becomes in what shape Holloway will be in.

    Shit. I knew I had forgotten to buy something earlier. Is it just me or does Noomi look hot in those sunglasses?

    So Holloway takes his helmet off when they find the air is breathable in the structure (but lethal outside) then he lets some water drip onto his face. Then the others follow suit. Big mistake.

    Seemed pretty spoiler laden (although we have kind of cobbled together some of the plot more or less). Definately paints the Space Jockey(s) in a less than pleasant light.

    That was my first thought, especially with the "Old Testament/Ten Plagues" talk concerning the Space Jockeys. The environment itself is hazardous.

    I'm guessing the contents of those canopic jars is what the "Old Testament/Ten Plagues" is in refrence to

    I love that Ridley quote about us Internet people over analyzing the film production " I don't get where that comes from, actually it annoys the shit out of me" hahahaha.

    The article deifnately emphasizes the disdain the crew has for David. He could "The Cobra" (for fans of Lost).

    What's funny is that everyone at IMDB is losing their sh1t over it apparently being PG-13 and it sounds like that decision has NOT been made.

    And it seems Ridley is quite clear-headed about the trades (as you'd expect) of one vs. the other, and would argue forcefully and persuasively for the R.

    If I were a betting man, I'd bet on an R for this.

    I find LOST a steaming pile of shit, and if it wasnt for Ridley Scott being attached to this movie i would not have any expectations what so ever, cuz Lindelof is a JOKE.

    Dude spent what (four-five years?) trying to come up with another conclusion (since people figured pergatory long before the first season was through) , spent these years going "lolz no it's not purgatory man!" until in the end it was like "okay lolz it is purgatory"

     

    I hope this is built on the framework Jon Spaihts provided, and O'Bannons original ideas, and that Ridley just continued evolving this.

    Basicly utalizing Lindelof as a glorified secretery.

    I have the same disdain for Lindelof (ans his work) as i have for the Hackowski Brothers and Zach Snyder.

    This is the entire reason I recently left the imdb board and came here.  That place is a damn zoo. 8-}

    The rating isn't paramount to me...a great movie is.  And I've seen great movies with all types of ratings.

    More or less confirmed Weyland as the old man?

    There's a lot of stuff in there which makes the story seem less complex, which is nice.

    Seems like it, although I find it interesting he has so little screen time. Either he bites it or turns into something CGI.
