Alien Prequel News (why choose a name that won't be relevant come this time next year?) exclusively reports that Ridley Scott and his team have wrapped principle photography at Pinewood Studios in England on Prometheus, their sci-fi horror prequel to Alien that tells the origin of the creatures... and man. In addition, they have a slew of images from the breakdown of the set pieces that they have already connected to designs in Scott's 1979 classic (see below). Click the link above for more.

Fox has slated the 3-D film for release on June 8, 2012.

While the entire plot has already leaked online, those of you who have covered your eyes can now breathe a sigh of relief. The official Facebook page for Ridley Scott's Prometheus has been updated with a brand new synopsis that gives a very vague breakdown of the plot for the Alien prequel:

"Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With 'Prometheus', he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race."

Those of you you just had your curiosity piqued and want to know more, beware of major spoilers and then click here.

I'm tempted to click on that spoiler alert for the simple fact that it's NOT moving.

Personally, I don't think it's much of a spoiler  :-\

I would not call that a trailer in any respect. Oh well.

I do suggest the handful of pics posted. Looking very cool.

It's been quite a month for Twentieth Century Fox and Prometheus, their presumed prequel to Alien directed by franchise creator Ridley Scott. Keeping the excitement in momentum, by clicking the above or below still you'll now find our new gallery of hi-res imagery!

In addition, Tom Rothman, CEO of Fox, spoke with MTV about the recent trailer leak. "I heard some of it leaked, which wasn't so good," he said. "That's not fair. It's heartbreakingly unfair, because ... the quality of the visuals is as spectacularly beautiful, shot in 3-D compositionally the way only a master could do it," Rothman added. "For some early, early, early, early half-baked, half-assed test to leak, it's so unfair."

And speaking on the Alien connection he explains: "I'll tell you the great thing: It's way bigger than that. The ideas are way bigger, way more original and — it's a scary word — way more profound."

Fox has Prometheus slated for launch on June 8, 2012.

Filmophilia conducted a pretty lengthy interview with Ridley Scott, director of Twentieth Century Fox's sci-fi horror Prometheus, the assumed prequel to his 1979 Alien.

While Scott has been absolutely deceitful in earlier interviews, he's slowly become more and more candid about the connection to the 30-year-old franchise. In the most recent of chats Scott comes clean on the addition of the Space Jockey, reveals the involvement of artist H.R. Giger, and promises with a bold face that we won't be seeing the xenomorph synonymous with the franchise.

In speaking to the connection to the Alien films Scott reaffirms the "DNA" quote he gave a few months back: "I mean, you could actually say, and there's a quote I did, a pretty good quote: By the end of the third act you start to realize there's a DNA of the very first alien, but none of the subsequent aliens. To tell you what that is is a pity, and I'm not going to tell you, because it's actually pretty good, pretty organic to the process and to the original. But we go back, we don't go forward."

The official synopsis from Fox says that this revolves around the "Alien Gods", the "Space Jockey" from the first film. Scott confirms their involvement and goes into some depth as to what we'll see in Prometheus.

"Yeah, so there you have that," he states boldy confirming the involvement. "I was always amazed that, I mean, I've only done two science-fictions, but I was always amazed that no one asked who the hell the Space Jockey was. He wasn't even called the Space Jockey. During the film they started to call it the Space Jockey. I don't know who started that one off. I always thought it was amazing that no one ever asked who he was, and why was he there? What was all that about? I sat thinking about this for a while and thought, well, there's a story! And the other four [films] missed it! So, here it is."

H.R. Giger is synonymous with the Alien films as he created the look of the creatures and the film's look. The site asked Scott about his potential involvement in the film.

"I brought him in, I showed him what we were doing, showed him the story and he liked it a lot" said Scott. "So he's doing a little bit of work for me. He's been doing some murals, big murals, which we'll see in almost one of the first chambers we encounter when we land where we're gonna go."

Lastly, don;t expect to see the original xenomorph in Prometheus.

"No. Absolutely not," states Scott before joking, "They squeezed it dry. He (the xenomorph) did very well. (He laughs) He survived, he's now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"


We'll go bac to a darker time on June 8 when Prometheus launches from Earth to....?

I get the feeling the Ridley Scott and company are trying to play down any "Alien" connection so that people that go to see the movie and find that it'a lacking in any sort of "sequel/prequel" rule book will not leave disappointed. When you hear the term "sequel/prequel", you expect a certain amount of closely related tie-ins to the original and I don't think we are going to get that here. That's been my take without having gotten to deep into reading about the production of the movie to avoid spoilers for myself.

I dunno. We could end up getting a movie that out does Aliens for all I know.

My fear is since its inception, the anticipation is going to out flank the movie and no matter what, will be a disappointment. Cripes, the frenzy and buzz is solid. Wait until it get closer to next summer. Jeeeezzzz
