Are those Space Jockeys in this new Prometheus image?

We all know by now that PROMETHEUS is an ALIEN prequel; no matter the spin by Ridley Scott and 20th Century Fox, this sucker exists in that same world and will widen the scope of the original tale we all grew up loving. If for some reason you weren't positive of this before, you must be now after taking a gander at the above photo, which - I believe - clearly shows a couple of Space Jockeys in the background. (Is it me or does it look like Noomi Rapace has been airlifted from another photo into this one?) Click on the pic to see a bigger version.

Those Space Jockeys will be key to this film and its connection to Scott's seminal 1979 sci-fi epic, which is shuttling toward us this summer. (Don't know what a Space Jockey is? C'mon, man...) The L.A. Times spoke to screenwriter Damon Lindelof about the event picture and got him to spill a little on just how big PROMETHEUS promises to be.

“The movie is definitely epic in its scope. One of the filmmakers that we ended up talking about to a fair degree of redundancy was David Lean, who directed ‘Lawrence of Arabia,’” he said. “We wanted to make the movie feel big by having the characters be small in big spaces. That connected to the larger themes we were talking about — that we’re all just these little gnats crawling around on our little planet.”

PROMETHEUS opens on JUNE 8th.
