Does anyone knoe Spaiht's script version? Is it acailable somewhere?
After seeing a preview/behind the scenes video on YouTube for the movie, I had a thought that popped into my mind. The thought was of Kenner and the cancelled Alien movie line, which made me wonder if there was any toy company planning on releasing action figures or any kind of collectables in relation to Prometheus. I did a bit of a small search and came across this Blog post by NECA that was done in February, which explains they not only plan on doing a few Alien and Aliens figures, but figures Prometheus as well. Kinda wonder what they're going to look like.
Sorry, I know this post is useless, but it's just my collector's side that just had an itch that I had to scratch. The filmmaker side of me definitely can't wait to check out the movie.
Well if they do ever do another one here's the good news! Somebody got the hint and is going back to television. The VERY BAD news is he has been involved in Star Trek 2.
LOST Co-Creator Damon Lindelof Returning to Television Full-Time
Seems a bit sudden to me. I wonder why? And I like this quote of his : "What I love about television is character-based storytelling." Pity he didn't do that with his films. " Cowboys and Aliens" was a thudding dud for me as well.

Same thing I disliked about BSG... it just couldn't keep its focus, setting up and building up new things before dealing with what had already been started.
Those writers are good at starting things, but instead of finishing or coming to a conclusion with those, they start up new things... then new things... and new things... and so ****ing on.
It's like a joke without a punch-line.
can anyone tell me if the power loader was in the film?
gah i spent waay to much time chasing 'tic-tacs' over at the unforum it seems...
"The worst mistake you can do is watch all the viral, trailers and spoilers as its been mentioned before they are almost all big plot sequences and theres not much else to it aside from how they connect and why."
I stopped reading this thread after this. I tried not to watch the trailers, but could not look away in the theater. I now know everything except how the scenes connect and why... I tried so hard to avoid seeing anything about this film so i could see it unspoiled.
Well, I'm about as spoiled as one can get without having seen the film. I've read the bad reviews (and the good ones) and I've even seen the end of the film on youtube buttcam.
All that, and I'm still extremely excited to see it on Friday.
Sorry I read a review where the engineers where described and referred to as Teddy bares and it made me chuckle all the way through the review.
Since they don't release the movie until August here and I was so scared about the reviews, I watched some of the final scenes of the movie from a russian camrip, thinking that I would see that the movie looked awesome and there was nothing to fear.
Now I'm devastated. Monsters look like real crap (I mean, sharktopus, really?). The Space Jockey scene was SO rushed that it felt stupid. Music is too loud/happy... so far, it looks to me like something out of an AVP movie, not a Ridley Scott film.
I hope the plot is interesting and Fassbender's character makes the movie worth watching. But I cannot understand why the monsters in the film are so cheesey...... They should've never removed the classic alien from the movie if they weren't going to create something equally awesome
I suppose that watching it in the theater will make it all look better, but still it doesn't feel worth all the waiting and excitement of these months.

Going to go see this movie tomorrow, despite all the bad reviews. Personally I think it's going to be good.
F the reviews, I'm feeling there is most likely loads of little nods and details that will keep me happy.
Anyone notice the line 'Prometheus has landed' isn't in the movie?
Isn't there a scene in one of the trailers with the co pilots flying the life boat away from prometheus also???
Yeah, yeah, I know I should see it before I can judge it, but honestly I don't think I can... I don't think I can put myself through the torture of seeing these cheeseball cg-desecrated jockeys we're hearing about (I knew Scott would mess up badly here - this is the man who gave us Crowe's 'gladiator helmet' - an object which constitutes the single biggest piece of cheese I've seen in the cinema in the last 30 years...)
To be fare to the landing, its way way better in the movie than seen from trailers. One great thing about the film is the ship and some of the up close shots, the big white logo is gone also....
Am I still the only one who spotted the Blade runner blimp lighting on the side of the ship in one scene? It was pretty big and a great great nod to blade runner.
Well if this is as bad as Gladiator, Id be glad, because I really think Gladiator is a great film.
Prometheus is actually getting pretty good reviews in Sweden.

I really liked it. Saw it for the second time today. It leaves you with plenty to think about, that's for sure. Definitely not perfect, a few silly bits, but a hell of a lot more interesting than MOST of the blockbuster 'sci-fi' drivel I've paid to sit through in the last few years. I hope it does well and Ridley makes a sequel.
It would be a stronger movie if it weren't for the connection to Alien and were it's own thing. The space jockey scene in Alien still elicits much more an intriguing and unsettling response in a brief few minutes than Prometheus does in 2 hours.
I look forward to watching Prometheus again, but it's a whole different, less masterful animal to Alien.
