"It started as an Alien prequel, that is what everybody wanted it to be. Obviously, Ridley Scott has not made a science fiction movie in 25 years, since Blade Runner, so the idea that he’s returning to this genre is huge."

"But there is a real issue which is - what is the state of the Alien franchise at this point in our lives? There has been Alien Vs. Predator and all these things, and it has been completely and totally diluted." (How to fix that? Well, go back to the very beginning and tell a completely different story.)

"I’ve always felt that really good prequels should be original movies, you can do movies which take place before Star Wars, but I don’t need to see the story of the Skywalker clan. Show me something else which I can’t guess the possible outcome of."

"There is no suspense in inevitability. So a true prequel should essentially precede the events of the original film, but be about something entirely different, feature different characters, have an entirely different theme, although it takes place in that same world."

"That was my fundamental feeling about what this movie wanted to be."

Directed by Ridley Scott and stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, and Michael Fassbender, Prometheus is set for a June 8, 2012 release.

I'm down for something entirely different for Prometheus.He's also right about Star Wars. Lucas should def think about doing his show on someone other than Luke. I've read all the stories surrounding Darth Bane and he is def a character that should be looked into.

@ arminies

he just explained it.

it has nothing to do with any of the other aliens movies, or AVP movies.

its a stand a lone movie that takes place long before Alien. It will more than likely explain some things about the Xenomorphs, but it has nothing to do with the Alien movies, as far as story goes.

This movie will be good till the last twenty minuets. Then Lindelof will make it some dream or after life flash back that Ripely having, and run it just like lost. He also wont tell you where the pods even come from.
