New Prometheus plot

Prometheus.jpgSo there's been a new Prometheus plot been revealed online and it tells us what the set-up for the film is and what it is most definitely not. It is not Alien, but there could be aliens in it, and it is not about the race of creatures that piloted the first alien vessel we saw in the series, but it could be.

So what do we really know about the Prometheus film? The film that definitely began life as an Alien prequel looking to the "space jockey" creatures and why they were transporting the Aliens in the first place, which slowly morphed into something different. Or so we're told.

The information on Prometheus is still a little vague, but let's look at the new blurb first.

Ridley Scott, director of "Alien" and "Blade Runner," returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

The new plot comes from the film's Facebook page through ShockTillYouDrop.

There's been a lot of marketing to point out that the film is not going to be the Alien prequel it began life as, but there have been leaks and set photos that have suggested the creatures are still there in some way and that goes for the "space jockey" creatures too.

So what are we going to see? Well I think we will see all of what we are expecting, but more as a side story to the main event. I have theories from what I've read about the "space jockey" aliens wiping planets clean of life using the Aliens, something about these creatures having seeded Earth, and more. However the answers are still a long way off and there's not a lot leaking out from the film.

What do you think the film should deliver?



Ridely Scott said "NASA and the Vatican agree that it is almost mathematically impossible that we can be where we are today without there being a little help along the way."

So, he might know a lot about directing, but naff all about science. Also, NASA claims no such thing. This Eric von Daniken dribble does not inspire me, daft Americans will lap it up. Still, bet it looks great.
