    The sequal would be "interesting" for his character....

    I guess he means his character would need to be brought back to life?

    anyone else seen this clip?? It definitely shows at least one blue bald fellow on Earth.
    I'm a bit skeptical though..

    You always were an asshole, Gorman!

    Interview with Nikeah Forde who worked on the Visual Effects/Data Wrangler in Prometheus:

    Veronica: Who do you work for and what do you do?
    Nikeah: I am freelance, and a visual effects co-ordinator. On Prometheus I was a replacement Data Wrangler. 

    V: What does a data wrangler do?
    N: A data wrangler takes all notes and measurements on set that the visual effects companies will need to recreate the scene virtually later on. I would take camera notes; height, tilt, distance to subject as well as lens details, what sort of set up the camera was on.

    V: You’ve been on the crew for several other films and a TV mini-series including The Pacific, Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and, more recently, the Tim Burton film Dark Shadows. Was there anything unique about working on Prometheus compared to other films you’ve worked on?
    N: Prometheus is the only film I’ve worked on that shot in stereo, which means that for each shot there are two cameras side by side, so stereo means it will be in 3D. If you have two cameras they act like two eyes and depending on the crossover angle and the distance between them you create depth. You can shoot with one camera and later on cut each frame into depths to create 3D, this is called Post-Conversion, it’s not as good though. It’s super time consuming, but there are companies whose sole job is post-conversion. Each frame needs to have the work done to it, that’s the same with all VFX. That’s why our section of the credits is so long!

    V: Speaking of credits, you told me that your name won’t be in the Prometheus credits, despite working on the film, why is that?
    N: I just stood in for two days when their Lead Wrangler was sick. There is usually a minimum amount of days that you need to work on a film before you get listed in the credits.

    V: Did you get to work with any of the stars of the film? With whom and what did you work on with them?
    N: I did...I can’t really say. After the release [I’ll be able], but you will have to put a spoiler label on it. We all sign non-disclosure agreements when we come on board.

    V: What was it like working with Sir Ridley Scott?
    N: He is an amazing director, he knows exactly what he wants. Which is perfect on set. It’s the best trait a director can have. 

    V: What’s the best part of working on a film? 
    N: The crew, you are working such long and hard hours that you really bond with everyone.

    V: What’s the most challenging part?
    N: The hours, you have no time for a social life once you are on set. It’s pretty hard, but if you reality check yourself every now and again and realize that you have a pretty cool job it’s easier.

    V: Any perks from working on Prometheus?
    N: I got to explore the sets which were amazing.

    V: Do you plan to see Prometheus when it hits theatres?
    N: Absolutely. It should be incredible. And the visual effects team were top notch. ;-)

    V: Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions. I can’t wait to get more details next month and maybe see some behind-the-scenes photos too!
    N: Not a problem, [we’ll] speak soon!

    The heat is over whether the trailer and tweets are advertising or editorial since there were directions as to where to buy tickets.

    LOL!

    BTW, why does the UK seem to have several really good movie/science fiction magazines.  We don't have shit in the US, especially science fiction based.

    was at my brothers earlier and was scrolling through his pc and found something very interesting. God help me but I've been trying really hard to find it again but cant. Those guys who do the ancient astronaut programme are planning on doing a 2 hour documentary debating the facts and fictions of the film prometheus lol

    Edit:  NVM, found one.

    I think that was supposed to be a Discovery channel special?  Narrated or hosted by Ridley Scott no less?

    Note the gold bag on the ramp leading up to the platform opposite the entrance to the Orrery.  David's bag?
    Nice usage of the word "trolled".

    Some teenager reactions to the Prometheus trailer, mentioned in an LA Times blog entry, "Summer Movie Posse: Movie stars don't cut it with these kids". (Not that they're in the age group to see it! :D )

    ‘Prometheus’

    Phoebe Kiekhofer, 16: “There’s way too much screaming in the trailer. It gave me a serious headache.”

    Ariel Astrup: “The flashing is bad too. I was just getting into it,
    especially with the weird things crawling on the ceiling, but the
    flashing was too much like ‘Halo.’ Yuck!”

    Jeremy: “It felt like a cross between ‘Alien’ and ‘National
    Treasure.’ I know there are some big names in the movie, but that’s not
    gonna get me to see it.”

    Jannah Ustaris, 14: “I agree. The screaming was way too much for me.”





    Reality disappoints me
