Prometheus Footage Screening + Q&A in London

    In Central London on April 10th 2012, a selected few from the UK film press were treated to a Prometheus 13-minute footage screening and Q&A session with Ridley Scott, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, and Michael Fassbender. The venue was filled with approximately 400 journalists who apparently left even more excited than how they first came in.

    Some of the things we've learned from the plethora of reports popping up online regarding both the footage and the Q&A are the following:

    • The footage begins with Shaw and Holloway in the Isle of Skye in 2079
    • After the Isle of Skye, footage shows the Prometheus ship journeying in space in 2083
    • There is a title card saying that the ship's mission is classified
    • An elder Peter Weyland appears in a video recording for the Prometheus crew
    • Weyland describes David the android as "a son"
    • The Prometheus arrives at a planet called LV-223
    • The giant head statue moves
    • When quizzed about whether or not there will be a "chestburster" scene, Ridley Scott mentions there is a scene with similar shock value that was filmed with only Noomi Rapace on a closed set.

    There is indeed a heap of reaction articles by journalists who were among the lucky 400. If you want to read far more detailed accounts of what happened, here are the ones we think covered this event best so far:

    Was that midnight last time, well midnight for me anyway CDT? Actually I remember it being 9 or 10 PM CDT last time as I was watching something on TV and took a break to check the Facebook page.

    Appended:

    I guess that would be -6 hours difference with respect to London time making it 6 AM Wednesday morning in London. Or 5 AM Greenwich Meridian Time since it seems that London uses daylight savings time if Wikipedia is right.

    According to this guy http://weylandinvestors.tumblr.com/

    So tomorrow, there will be a press junket in London with Ridley and the entire cast, with 30 minutes of exclusive footage screened in 3D.

    If it's 30 minutes of actual movie footage, and there's no NDA's involved this will prolly put a ton of the speculations to rest.

    I hope someone uploads it to youtube.  Since I do not live in those cities I feel as though I am getting ripped off.  NEED TO SEE MORE FOOTAGE!

    If it's press it'll most likely have NDA's involved and dont think anyone's gonna be risking their jobs (and rep) to put footage on youtube.

    To me 30mins of footage is way to much to not come with strings attached.

    If its probably from the beginning or middle or segments thereof, I would most likely watch that if posted.

    Welcome Carnifex!   Most here think it is either a space jockey or Holloway transforming into a spacy jockey.

    Hey there!
    thx for the info, just discovered this forum...i'm a little bit confused...if this is Holloway, transforming into a space jockey,
    why does his skin looks so xeno shaped in this scene or do you guys think,the space jockeys and the xenos are genetically related in some way? i dont really get it...sry for my bad english
  • ramp_closingramp_closing

    Someone did some nice side by side screenshots of the Alien and the 'Space jockey' from Prometheus.  The striations and mottling on the legs certainly suggests some connection, but we still don't know what yet.

  • I know someone who is at this this morning. They told me it was about 20 min of footage. If they tell me anything, which they probably will when we're next at the pub, I'll let you in on it. Even he's gutted about getting to see a portion of it and would rather experience the whole film at once. Still, lucky bastard.

    What did they say about NDA's?, cuz if they've banned all kind of recording equipment, that's a very telling sign that everyone in the room will be made to sign paperwork saying they cant utter or write a word about what is said until X date.

    I'll drop him a text a bit later and find out. Probably is the case. But it's at a big venue so I'm guessing there'll be a lot of people who have to stay very quiet... 
  • there are a ton of excellent reactions to the 15 minutes of footage shown popping up on twitter right now
