The latest image from Ridley Scott's hotly anticipated PROMETHEUS confirms two things: 1) the humans' space suits seem really colorful, and 2) the Space Jockey's skeletal look is actually that of an alien wearing a space suit of its own.

Last month, Filmophilia ran an interview with Scott about the ALIEN prequel that has since been taken down, though this interesting excerpt has still been floating around:

"I think one of the reasons why I've never gone back to science-fiction, even though I've often noodled around, thought about it, looked for story, looked for material, is that there's a nice purity to the original Alien. It's fairly pure. And [PROMETHEUS] does actually raise all kinds of other questions, because if someone could, a being, could be as monstrously clever to create something like we experienced in the very first one -- I always figured it's a weapon, and I always figured that [the ship in the first ALIEN] was a carrier of weapons. Therefore, who is that, inside that suit? That wasn't a skeleton, that was a suit. And if you open up the suit, what do you get inside it? And why were they going, where were they going?"

You can click to get a larger look of the official still above, but below we've got the Jockey suits focused on with the brightness turned up.

PROMETHEUS opens June 8th.

Synopsis: Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.

There is a considerably naked Space Jockey in the teaser trailer. He looks almost identical to a human, but with slightly cybernetic arms. He's bald, muscular, and giant. You can see him standing almost completely still on the far right of the frame in the scene where the Jockey chair rises out of the floor. I'm about 95% positive the Space Jockeys are evolutionary descendants of humans, and that they've traveled backward in time (be it intentionally or not), where they eventually meet the

Awesome!

Damn, Rapace looks so cool in her suit! I think it's one of the best designs I've seen. Kind of looks like she stepped out of Mass Effect.

This is great.

I'm truly excited about this.
The first picture is kind of tricky because I remember the suit being a hell lot bigger. Maybe it's the angle of the shot...I dunno.

The pic looks a bit odd, and I think it has something to do with her brightly colored suit in contrast to the dark hallway. That said I'm excited for this. Love Noomi and I'm glad she's getting more recognition in Hollywood.
