Allosaurus all the time, they were like jurassic tigers, good fight btw.

Maybe the black goo is the pigment of their eyes :p
Feb-10-2014 4:05 PM
It was an entertaining read, thanks
Feb-10-2014 4:00 PM
Interesting and I wonder if this predator competed against dromaeosaurs
Feb-08-2014 7:01 PM
yeah, after all science is changing its mind all the time
Feb-08-2014 6:41 PM
you mean new look (scientifically acepted) of the dinosaurs in the future?
Feb-08-2014 6:35 PM
Teratossaurus like a theropod dinosaur
Feb-08-2014 6:03 PM
Sound like an Alien invasion Star Wars style, and in my opinion would be a good idea for the next films, or even a great spin off.
Feb-08-2014 5:35 PM
It would be a badass fight, and who Knows, maybe a super predator could win. BTW I wonder if the Preds have hunted Arcturians XD
Feb-08-2014 4:02 PM
I think the Engineers, for some reason, see the xenomorphs as a very valuable thing, and not just as simple biological weapons, and that piramyd looks like a cathedral dedicated to that being. I mean, they wanted to create somthing new, and our destruction was the first step to complete that purpose.
Who knows, maybe they have done this before (on another planet with humanoid like us) and the Space Jockey from LV- 426 is evidence of that.

I would like a puppet that looked like this
Feb-08-2014 2:40 PM
Your avatar and the last two are so cool. You made me smile with this, god job pal :)
Feb-08-2014 2:33 PM
Maybe the camera tricks combined whit CGI can help next time, with a reasonable buget of course.
Feb-08-2014 2:29 PM
I agree, because for me this is one of the major inconsistency and it is something difficult to deal with this without answers.
The idea of the Elders is now the most plausible explanation, and I hope that Ridley (ore someone else) take that route.

I think the original Space Jockey have no legs, or at least that was the purpose of the original idea, you Know, before the God like Astronaut concept. Even the arms are disproportionatey long, and there is not enough space in the rest of the chair to the legs and feet of the creature, said that my thoughts are that the original Space Jockey:
1) Has an appendix instead of legs (ie, another type of creature and not an Engineer). In fact the head of the original creature has teeth and a tongue.
2) The body of the creature is attached to the rest of the machine, as a biomechanoid (could be another species but can also be a lissing link in the evolutionary chain of the Engineer race, or even the future of their evolution). I imegine this as an alien version of \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Thechnological Singularity\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\".
3) Occam\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s razor; it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s a huge man in a spacesuit, and probably and elder Engineer.

Somewhere I read that the Brothers Strause wanted a cameo to a flying queen in the homeworld of the xenomorphs in the final scene of AVPR, with a predator trying to catch the creature, but the idea was out of the film due to budget.
Jan-17-2014 12:13 PM
Epic Thread! and on the other hand I would look at the ships of the Alien franchise (especially the Juggernaut) forming part of this great compilation of spacecraft.
Jan-17-2014 12:08 PM
Sometimes I think the last engineer is guilty for the outbreak in the Pyramid
Dec-17-2013 7:32 PM
Yeah, Ridley say that. But even if Him and Fox change their minds, with one collision is sufficient; two would be a bit monotonous.
I think the emergency landing would be more likely. But for some reason, I think that the Juggernaut of Shaw and David could become the future Derelict, that ship or another from the home planet of the Enginners (as long as they change their opinions, of course :p)
Dec-15-2013 8:53 PM
@Big Dave, considering the fact that they used a combination between that early Alien 3 screeplay and the Star Beast proyect; it is quite posible that there is still old material for the sequel, like the Dan O' Bannon' s original script (see the Svanya's Thread) which has some religious style elements in relation to the sacrifices and the life cycle of the monster.
Dec-15-2013 8:36 PM
So, he was trying to protect other life forms? like What? Shaw's Baby?
Dec-15-2013 8:27 PM
@Visionary Alpha, What is that of "when he discovered Charlie ' s remains oustside"? I`m curious.
Dec-15-2013 8:23 PM
Yes, they had many plans for Fifield, plans which unfortunately never saw the light of the day.
Dec-15-2013 8:01 PM
Ok Santa, listen carefully:
1. More News about Prometheus 2.
2. News about other posible science fiction films of Ridley Scott (Wool, Blade Runner)
3. A site about Super Heroes here, on Scified.
4. The Raptor Team in the JW forums.
5. News about Star Wars, Jurassic World and Interestellar.
6. A new Game Console.
7. Evidence of Extraterrestrial life.
8. An X files movie.
9. Weed legalization.
10. Una mamasota rubia de ojos azules como una que he visto por ahi XD
Dec-15-2013 4:28 PM
Although, Fifield attack inside the pyramid would have been more creepy, IMHO.
Dec-15-2013 4:04 PM
Could be just me, but I would have liked to see that pile of dead Engineers in Prometheus attached to the walls with some kind of slime or resin as in the pictures of this thread :)
Dec-15-2013 3:52 PM
Probably he was trying to get back to the Ship, walking down the corridors, suffering from pain, a little disoriented, but at the same time he was losing his humanity by this virus that was controlling his body.
Dec-15-2013 3:29 PM
It's more creepy? Yes! but it's long, complex and a waste of resources (the bodies). Even reminds me how disorganized and complex is the set of steps to create a deacon.
Definitely the queen is much more practical and productive, and no matter what the purist think about it.
Nice Thread btw :)
Dec-15-2013 2:56 PM
Probably totally off topic, but I remember having seen something about a virulent contagion spread by xenomorph, in a early screeplay to Alien 3. There, Infected become xeno-like-creatures, results from mutations.
I just found it a bit like the concept that we see in Prometheus, and you can read the script here:
Dec-15-2013 2:19 PM
I also wonder if the black goo is the blood of some kind of god-like-creature or something, but that ' s just me, of course :p
Dec-15-2013 2:17 PM
The film does not give us any clue, but with the scipts we can see some interesting points, especially with the Jon'screenplay: with the DNA of an ancient lifeform, wich was collected by black scarabs.
Unfortunately it is not canon, and what we see on screen is all we have.
Dec-15-2013 1:50 PM
At least is resting in peace ... Have a good journey, Mr. O ' Toole :)
Dec-12-2013 7:23 PM
My favorites are the Acklay, the colo claw fish, the nexu and the Rancor, but mostly I love the Acklay :)
Dec-12-2013 6:55 PM
I also think that scene could be better, maybe with the egg morphing, and engineers glued to the wall with alien slime (as fossilized resine)
Dec-12-2013 5:30 PM
Ridley wanted to do this just because it looked cool (in fact he did the same trick as with the chestburster of Kane), and also the creature needed a escape. IMO there is no real explanation for that, but of course we can speculate and maybe it was the acid and at the same time the hammer was eating to Milburn or just using his body as a shelter, or both. In addition, it could be trying to absorb his DNA.
Dec-11-2013 6:46 PM
I love these warriors because they are very similar to the mandalorians (well, they are clones of one), and much better than stormtroopers. Great list.
Dec-04-2013 3:42 PM
With the release of Transcendence we can have an idea of the quality of the new story...April 18, 2014
Dec-04-2013 2:59 PM
Milburn is a huge Steve Irwin, with that fantasy of *I can set up a special connexion with wild animals and yet I can be safe*... but in no way is a real scientific, its just a hipster :p
Dec-04-2013 1:24 PM
When people agree to live in ignorance is like religion, is not very smart indeed. In my case, I only see different styles of science fiction, but that does not mean I see Prometheus as an intelligent masterpiece. It is a fantasy film, visually elegant and epic, but with bad characters and poor story.
