Are you guys/Girls asleep?..go read this!

I suppose you have to take into account the reviewers who are NON SciFi lovers ... so there's a percentage lost there ... and because of that you lose vital points ... you probably got a few who haven't seen ALIEN either :/ ... so there's another knock ... it goes on ...

New featurette

Yeah I see that image but thats a Promo shot ... not an actual screenshot ...

@iapetus ...
Haha ... I'm just weirder than most ;) ...

There has been a heck of a lot you new guys have missed (I have too) ... what I have seen and spoken about since I arrived in March has been HUGE ... you only have to miss a day or two and you're out of the loop ...

It is a damn shame but near impossible to find the cream of the crop posts made by the others as well ...

H.R. Giger respect thread

Totally agree with all that's said here ... also even if he had little input on Prometheus he's still valid big time as the initial CREATOR of the BEST Alien (imho) EVER ... :) ...

2 Davids

That was the first thing I thought too when I saw that ... then I thought maybe its the yellow internal helmet light playing tricks on me ... but I must admit it DOES look like David ...

But then to rule our Holloway ... DO we see him in THAT room in any of the trailers? ... I've gone completely blank due to Trailer Overload :/ ...

That's no shaven head btw ;) ...

Haha ... Sorry but I'm gonna have my moment here ... you non believers lol ... mind you it was a weird theory I'll give you that ... ;) ... Rings of Prometheus? ...

janek and ravel

In one of the latest trailers (Prometheus Landing) ... I reckon he's actually sitting BEHIND those two guys at the front (abordoli's image) ... he gets up and walks past them and then to the main console in the trailer ;) ...

Remembering Stan Winston

Too true ... what a brilliant man ...

My father ... also a brilliant man ;) ... died in February 2008, roughly the same time as Roy Schneider (JAWS) ... all THREE of them had the same thing ... Multiple Myeloma ... cancer of the blood ...

spoiler screening,new image

This IS interesting ... came across this a few minutes ago ... I'm posting a link as opposed to the image ;) ...

That new image looks like it could be from the Alien Life Cycle:

I wouldn't have thought so ... it's not set on Mars this time ... so no genetically deformed (Mars like creatures) in this one I think ... not even '3 Titties' will make an appearnace :( ...

spoiler screening,new image

DAMN!!! ... nice one ... I may have to eat my words now ... oh this was a Spanish screening then? ... not the French one? ... :/ ...

David wakes him? ... no wonder he's Pi$$ed ...

"Hello mate ... sorry to wake you ... but ... we're here" ... "We've finally arrived" ... :) ...

So what are you sayin'? ... David is WEYLAND in disguise? ... hence why we see the suit in the Hologram room? ... :o ... :/ ...

Ok kidding ... but I thought that was better than, '2 weeks' ... ;) ...

Blue bald man not SJ

@ADH0983 ...
With all due respect I think you 'shouted' a bit too much there @Gigerland ... I do agree with what you said except for the personal attack ;) ...

You ALL must remember that some of the guys have been here a whole year or more and have heard repeats MORE than anyone else ... but they still help out with friendly advice ...

Yes it does get annoying sometimes, due to getting new people everyday they WILL post similar posts ... that's how we think ... yes there is a SEARCH feature now but that's all it takes, is to point them in the right direction ... it will get far worse when the movie is released so please be prepared for an influx of a lot more newer folk, into the forum, eager to share their joys, as you all did when you first arrived here ... ;) ...

I think Gigerland has been reading this thread and probably already knows he may of missed something as well as a few threads he could of read ... we all do that ... so please, ANYONE who thinks they're gonna get irritated by repeat threads please do NOT respond harshly ... only repsond to help out ... the STAFF will take over and tidy up the mess ... like we always do ;) ...

Thanks and please carry on posting ... we're all supossed to be friends in here ... this is NOT your typical movie forum btw ... it's a GROWN UP one ;) ...

Ezz now ;) ...

Ascpet ratio?

Well Prometheus is being shot in 2.35:1 cinemascope, and IMAX films need to be cropped to 1.85:1 ...

So for IMAX you get a bigger picture and therefore, I would've thought, you would NOT get the WHOLE picture, being as it's getting cropped ... :/ ... I'm not 100% on this btw ... just guessing ...

Ascpet ratio?

Technical specifications : Prometheus (2012)

The film was shot entirely using 3D cameras ...

Camera
3Ality Technica Atom 3D Rig
Red Epic, Zeiss Ultra Prime and Angenieux Optimo Lenses
Laboratory
Company 3 (digital intermediate)
Fluent Image, London, UK
Film negative format (mm/video inches)
Redcode RAW
Cinematographic process
Digital Intermediate (master format)
Redcode RAW (5K) (dual-strip 3-D) (source format)
Printed film format
35 mm (anamorphic)
35 mm
D-Cinema (also 3-D version)
D-Cinema
Aspect ratio
2.35 : 1



Some extra Information:

IMAX SPECS:

Some IMAX Info:

IMAX 70mm equates to theoretically 16k Digital resolution ... so RED Cameras @5k seems pretty far off ... some major DMR upscaling and cropping is done so it fits the IMAX screen ...

Current digital IMAX projectors have a tallest ratio of 1.78:1
D-IMAX ratio = 1.44:1

Some theatres have ratios of 1.85:1, with no masking. So anything that isn't in flat gets letterboxed

The native AR of digital iMax is the same as for all other DCI projectors - 1.89:1, that is, basically, a Flat AR.

An ratio of 4:3 is the more common aspect ratio for 15/70 IMAX films

Found this from Prometheus Cinematographer: Dariusz Wolski:

Dariusz Wolski had this to say about the Epic camera:

In my opinion, the new Red Epic camera is about to revolutionize all spectrums of the film industry.

I am going to use Epics in my new project directed by Ridley Scott. I am amazed with the quality of the image and the fact that you can shoot 5k at 120fps without compromising resolution, and most of all the size of the camera.

Combined with the Element Technica Atom 3d rig, we will be able to shoot a 3d movie with the flexibility of a conventional cinema camera.

I don’t see anything that comes close to it at the moment. I can’t even imagine the potential Epic will have on the big blockbuster industry as well as independent cinema.

Check this rig out - ATOM 3D Epic Rig:
What I would do to own this ... damn how things have changed eh? ... GO DIGITAL!!! :) ...

French promo fuels fire for the £67 expenses screening

To be fair Jono ... we could all come to that conclusion now with the latest trailers/TV Spots as one of them does show the Merc, Ford and possibly Shaw are all together in the hologram room with an SJ ...

I'm still skeptical about these screenings that's all ;) ... if they're bang on the money then I won't have a problem with that ... by that time I'll be able to tell you all about MY screening when i see it next week :) ...

Post your favourite trailer screenshots

That is a CRACKIN' ARSE! ... (pardon the pun though ... think about it) ... ;) ...

Can't wait for those to go on sale for 'birds' next Fancy Dress outing ... if we ever make out ... lol ...

Ridley Scott Interview

Haven't seen that one ... a few extra images ... nice .. thanks :) ...

Blue bald man not SJ

It has been said recently that the SJ/Engineer, in Prometheus, is very young and so only a nipper ;) ... DAD is probably the proper sized SJ (as in ALIEN) ... I'd be happy with that ...

We don't know their actual life span ... so, young (to them) could be 30-50 yrs old? ... hence the older they get the bigger they get? ...

SpaceJockey/Engineer in the Opening Sequence

Me neither but I am loving that idea of him melting into the water and seeding the planet ...

Ok ya got me ...

So after a big battle of the 'SPECIES', on that hell hole of a planet, the Engineers decide to kick in plan B ...

PLAN B:
Being as there's only a few left, the Engineers scrifice one of their own to TRY an reproduce their race again? ...

I notice they 'may not' have (or need) sex, so this could be their way of procreation? ... but this contradicts the possibility on the second movie concentrating on the SJs homeworld 'IF' that is Ridders original intention ...

Dunno ...

Shaw and Engineer - what´s the sequence? (**spoilers**)

@Rickk ...
I think those are actual electrical wires dangling (ripped out) as we see some of this in one of the trailers ...

Everyone is overlooking one thing in the trailers.

Looking at that shot in the video, the line of jump makes her miss the landing ... she could just grab the edge ... maybe she actually does fall and so land on either the Juggernaut or another landing pad? ... then ... MAYBE she is gushed out of the Geyser herself? ... dunno ... but IMHO it definitely looks like she does NOT make that jump ...

More on New Star Beast

Yes that was discussed quite a while back too ... mostly for Cuddles though ;) ...

Discussion HERE

Fans in U.S. Getting Spoiled Rotten!

Unfortunately billjill there will be a lot ... we'd be lying if we said no ... it cannot be stopped, that will happen anywhere for any movie :/ ...

The STAFF will NOT be able to police it just on their own ... now way ... this has gone HUGE ... even though we have the right SECTIONS for posting stuff people now are still NOT using them for the relevant topics ... so we can't win ... a shame but that's the truth ... no matter how hard we work at it ... ;) ...

As for Rikk (the lucky sod) ... someone hire a plane with smoke trails ... RSS FEED mid air lol ...

Actor Who Plays an "Engineer" reaveals alot about his Role ---Spoiler!

I gotta say that seems like a great spoiler ... and a great story ...

My main concern, with the SJ/Engineers (before all these spoilers) was ... ok so they created us HUMANS but what about all the other creatures on our planet? ... millions of them ... now that 'melting' into the water idea just goes BOOM!!! ... and solves all my questions in one go ... FFS ... I love it ... Also a NOD to Darwin I believe? ... he wasn't to know an Alien planted a seed in the water ... :) ...

Maybe Ridders is covering all possible corners of how we got here to please all Religions and theories??? ...

Now I'm starting to get this movie and loving it bigtime ... see spoilers work in the opposite way for me ...

AND ... SO ... that brings us back to the saucer people controlling the SJs? ...

<crap-theory>
Would it be possible that the Squid creature is on the side of the Saucer people? ... therefore the TWO battles that were said to be going on in the movie? ... maybe the battle was still going on and we turned up unannounced and in the middle of it all ... ok scrap that paragraph lol ... too much :/ ...
</crap-theory>

But ... if the SJs are the 'slaves' then all those URNS belong to the Saucer People and that takes me back to my Hyroglyphics Markings post about the Glyphs on the Urns ... so it must be ALL their creation then and NOT the SJs? ...

Damn I'm getting stoked up now ... :) ...

Great find Cain ...

People magazine films of summer

Not only that but I have noticed a lot of the major magazines are holding off the newer article reviews until after the movie ... hence why there's a dry up on write-ups for Prometheus ... :/ ...

H.R.GigerCode!Derilicts configuration hidden within the alien murial is potentia

It is a good theory ... but it was discussed a lot about a month ago though ... and I can't remember who by ... :/ ...

Well, isn't this Weyland?

Well there are FIVE TEMPLES to choose from ... ;) ...

Do we only see ONE temple as a massive hologram in Prometheus's control room ... and what about those under ground tunnels leading off to nowhere ... I reckon they interconnect to each temple ... possibly ...

what do xenos eat?

@Biehn_Bandit ...
You mean Dark Angel (aka We Come in Peace) ... ;) ... I love that movie ... a classic ... ;) ...

Engineer Ship Facing Prometheus

In the clip though, it is actually turning to face the Prometheus ... I'd say that it's facing front now ...

TV Spot #4 in 720 HD good quality ... & in TV Spot #6 @ 1080 Sh!t quality ...

Arrhhh ... TV Spot #19 a nice 1080 HD shot ;) ... also round about the 14th May ...

Shaw now says

Stop IT would possibly mean a SHIP? ...

Stop THEM would possibly mean either CREW or the SJ's? ...

She does say that sentence out of shot on both occasions ... so I reckon neither are the correct sentence that goes with 'there won't be any home to go back to' ... I think Shaw says both IT & THEM but in different contexts ... and sentences ... maybe ...

what do xenos eat?

Yeah Snorke ... but maybe the brain is also a quick way to die ... hence for humans a bullet in the brain :) ...

ALIENS
Description of reproduction cycle.
Each facehugger comes from an egg
What’s laying the eggs asks Ripley.
Hudson: One female that runs the whole show.
Bish: Yes the Queen.
Hudson: Yeah the momma. She’s badass man, I mean big.
Vasq: These things ain’t ants.
Why the sudden lucidity from Hudson? He’s a pussy! He is the weak sauce weapons dependent fool, no real phallus.
Burke gave bishop instructions to keep specimens alive
Burke tries to reason, smarts and money versus motherhood.
Ripley accuses Burke of killing the colonists, allying with the WILD MOTHER! Creating the generation because he is FASCINATED by the feminine wiles of the Aliens!
Burke accuses Ripley of not being smart. Smarts versus maternal.
Aliens rush the tunnel
Banging on the pressure door.
Emergency venting: Womb water breaks
ITS GONNA EXPLODE!

what do xenos eat?

Giger has stated that the Xeno's life span is days ... as in maybe 6 of so ... can't remember where I read that now ... I wouldn't have thought they would eat ... because all the captured dudes get secreted, ready to go into Egg Form ...

Special Effects Team Video (not) but maybe if Jockey was not a Suit!

Why the hell is that in here???!!! ... it's not a spoiler by any means lol ...

The SPOILER SECTION is fast becoming a NON spoiler section ... hence the same as the main discussion area ... ONLY stuff that is SPOILERISH needs to be in here ... come ... lol ;) ...

Moved to Talk Prometheus

Well, isn't this Weyland?

Sorry I'll rephrase that ...

I reckon they're NOT in THAT Big Head room that we know so well ... I reckon they're in 'different one' ... because in most of the footage, that I've seen, with David looking around the original big Head room, the urns seems to be intact and not leaking ... ;) ...
