SPOILERIFIC TV spots for Prometheus feature some epic coolness

05.23.2012

In case the headline didn't give it away, there are SPOILERS galore in this article, so turn back now if you're trying to remain "unspoiled."  I will be discussing what you see here AND posting screencaps, so if you are in the League of I Want To Know Nothing, then step away now.

All good?  Okay then, let's get to it.  Two new TV spots from PROMETHEUS have popped up online and one of them features some new footage that shines a light on a new alien creature we have yet to see.  The creature in question is a tentacled beast that appears to be scrapping with one of the "engineers," while holding on to Noomi Repace's leg.

Take a peek if you dare:

So, there isn't much else I can say about PROMETHEUS other than I'm beyond excited for it.  I really feel like it has the potential to be something groundbreaking and new, given the tought, preparation, and insight that Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof have contributed to its construction.  More than anything, I'm excited to see something I haven't seen before, which is a testament to the hunger for originality from fans, rather than the rehash of tired concepts. 

PROMETHEUS will land in just over two weeks on June 8, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: The concept of creating new events, characters, and timelines surrounding other properties, while still thing them together is a concept I can get behind and I hope that a successful box office for Prometheus will lead to that trend, if even for a while, before that too gets tired. But, as it stands, I'm so ready for that. What say you?

Im excited for it--BUT I hope...

...they explain why a race that (maybe) engineered us and by default, knows where earth IS in the first place...would wait for US to find THEM in order for them to destroy us...who they created in the first place...if the story explains that all out in a plausible way, then Im totally on board:)

I think it is either they didn't want to interfere as in they didn't want to be known about or they wanted humans to advance on their own to be able to find them.

Overeacting

Come, come people. Relax. Nothing huge has been spoiled. It's not like you didn't know there were going to be monsters in this. The trailers and spots have done nothing to reveal the plot, beside how some of these things looks like.

I have 1 single gripe: I hope they attempt to offer some sort of explanation as to why the Jockey's exo-suits don't match the one in Alien. Notice I said "exo-suit", and not "suit". The exo-suit I'm talking about is the one with the nose hose and the giant ribs. The ones in the Prometheus trailers are only somewhat similar to the one in Alien; but I've noticed many significant differences. There are differences in texture, proportions, the angles of details against others, the shape and

There are differences in texture, proportions, the angles of details against others, the shape and quantity of holes in the helmet, etc. The biggest difference, which I hope other people catch on to quickly, is that the Jockey in Alien does not have human proportions (ie, it is not simply a giant human, but a humanoid with strange, lanky, and bulky proportions, and a considerably small head. The Jockeys in Prometheus are clearly human-shaped beings in suits, which do not match the proportions from Alien.

The Promo department for Prometheus...

...is garbage. I mean, are they fucking serious? Every single promotional item seems to contain a major plot reveal hidden in not just the images but also the dialogue! All we needed to know was they are going to some far away planet and bad shit happens. That's fucking it. Not the cliffnotes of the whole movie. Stuff like this ruins the anticipation for films in my opinion.

Have you already seen the movie? If not, then how do you know that these are major plot reveals or cliffsnotes for the ENTIRE movie? These points could be the most miniscule elements of the film. I believe the runtime for the movie is over two hours, these are 30 & 60 second clips. You do need to realize that not everyone is a fanboy or some nerd that has had a hard on for this for months. They do need to appeal to a large audience to make $, & to do that they need to give the masses some idea

Otherwise the movie will tank, then they'll blame the R rating and cut back on R movies even more.

This is why its good not to watch anything Prometheus till the movie comes out. I've stopped watching any of the trailers after the second full trailer. Just have some self-control.
