    It is by Ridley Scott ( director of Alien ), set in the Alien universe, but set before the first Alien film.

    Not a direct prequel as such, but very much the same genre and sets the scene for the later Alien films. I dunno if this will be a single film or whether it may lead to a franchise reboot etc, but it looks outstanding visually, very much true to the first Alien film in terms of look and feel.

    Can't be any worse than the horrid Alien vs Predator films that were such a let down, not with Ridley Scott directing.

    @54sec looks decidedly like the derelict ship from Alien. This will almost tie in directly will be my guess.

    And with Guy Pearce and Charlize Theron..... I think they'll get my money.

    I'm looking forward to this thanks to Ridley Scott doing it, they clearly couldn't make a proper sequel so lets try a prequel.

    There's no many questions about the "space jockey" this might answer.

    I got very excited when I started seeing the film name appearing like the Alien did

    Fingers crossed on this one

    In terms of the amount of horror & action, this seems very much to be somewhere between Alien & Aliens; the first was a horror movie in space, and one of the best ever as most critics will agree, the second was more of a war/action movie in space. Prometheus seems to have lots of screams/scares + plenty of action, but also has a much larger budget & modern special FX which the first movie lacked to an extent...

    ALIEN was better for the limited budget. Gothic horror is best served understated and atmospheric.

    Aliens was just guns in space. Guns in space very well done, but guns in space nonetheless. There never was an Alien 3 (mmmmokay?).

    Prometeus? Don't know where that fits. I don't think the derelict and space jockey needed explaining. ALIEN works better without explanations. A lot of the scariness is in the stumbling on something that gradually reveals itself to be horrific. Prometeus may just reveal itself as a two-hour spoiler for ALIEN. Unless it has a compellingly ingenious plot that surprise-twists everything we thought we knew about the world of Alien, that is, and I don't trust Hollywood to pull that off.

    I really hope this doesn't turn out to crap. I already wish Alien 3, Alien Resurrection and AvP movies had never been made. Ridley Scott is the only thing giving me hope that it'll be good.
    The worst thing would be if fanboys were given any involvement, cos they've ruined the Alien series enough already.

    Alien 3 theatrical version is a mess, though it has it's moments- I have the Quadrilogy & I can safely tell you that the Special Edition/ director's cut of the film fills in soooo many blanks, it's almost as though they cut out 1/3 of the film (
    relgious references, alien getting trapped scene, alien getting freed scene, sections in the tunnels + tons of other dialogue
    ) due to negative feedback from the test audiences.

    Alien Resurrection just should never have been made- the whole premise of cloning Ripley from blood samples is butter ********; the prison colony had no advanced technology or medical facilities to do anything with a blood sample, and none was taken. That never stops hollywood milking a franchise for all it's worth though- I just hope with Ridley Scott on board that Prometheus isn't a giant let down, I'd wager not though :)
