Thanks for the warning, i wont watch that. I hate to know a lot about a movie that i am going to watch, i feel that trailers nowadays give way too much info, and then i cant believe how people love to read spoilers about a movie they havent seen yet, for me, the less i know, the more i enjoy the movie.

Not just trailers but the d#mned Menus for DVD and Blu-Ray movies! I can't STAND that they show critical scenes from the movie on the menu screen. For instance, you put on a monster movie in which the monster is slowly revealed. Except that you were already shown the monster in several scenes the moment you got to the menu!

oh man, I thought I was the only one driven bonkers by spoilers in menus. even worse are major spoilers on the covers themselves.. the worst I've seen is the original Planet of the Apes, the cover has the ending on it.. brilliant.

There is no major spoiler in the Lindelof interview, so relax guys.

Yes! I was actually thinking of that outrageous spoiler cover as well, when I was typing about the menus!

Ridley addresses the relationship between this prequel and 'Alien', stating that essentially that The last eight minutes of the “Prometheus” story evolve into “a pretty good DNA of the ‘Alien’ one.”

Yeah,

1 - Zillion year Ice Melts and we fine a map on some exotic material (happens all the time)

2 - Hey, lets go check it out! During the trip we get to know the crew and Charlize's Euro Butt. Great scifi so far

3 - We meet the space dudes & yep they're way whatever all that super. Campfire, get to know ya, ain't it grand.

4 - OK, time to go. Wouldn't ya know it, the 'Damn Company' sent a mole to steal something. They kill almost everyone and the Supers send a love note to earth in the form of bio mek on a ship to knock us back into the age. One of our guys steals away on the ship and screws up the crew, pilot along the way. Big Crash - All dead except.

5 - Everyone hates Lindelof until Ridley releases the R cut and half of us Kinda like it after that, mainly due to the longer shot of Charlize's Fine Euro Butt.

Yes, but fun to see a little more. Bottom right on the ampule room shot where 2 are inspecting something like a skull or egg. Notice the depth of the room over more ampules and the wall. Obviously a nice tribute to the original's organic structure. Detail in the practical is what made the first so great.

When Ridley makes statements like "I'm having more fun on this than I've had in years" it must mean the sets and practical elements are quality.

Blow that shot up, adjust the contrast and it's pretty easy to identify the object. Do the same for the portion of the scene against the right wall for another surprise. The two "objects" appear to be related.

If you want to avoid the hassle, just click here.

I'm beginning to see the plot now.

Damon Lindlof, the writer for this movie.


The monolith in this movie.

From a R. Scott editorial posted today:

Technology continues to bring us wondrous advances in filmmaking to improve how we view movies.

While it's exciting to consider the possibilities stemming from this era of innovation -- which directors and futurists for decades have envisioned -- that allows us to watch a movie "anywhere, anytime," the more preoccupied we become with the technologies of how movies can reach us, the less we seem to ask the most important question: How do we really want to experience a film?

In my view, the only way to see a film remains the way the filmmaker intended: inside a large movie theater with great sound and pristine picture. Music and dialogue that doesn't fully reproduce the soundtrack of the original loses an essential element for its appreciation. Simply put, the film loses its power.

Short of that, the technically sophisticated Blu-ray disc, of which I've been a supporter since its inception, is the closest we've come to replicating the best theatrical viewing experience I've ever seen. It allows us to present in a person's living room films in their original form with proper colors, aspect ratio, sound quality, and, perhaps most importantly, startling clarity.

Which is why it has never made sense to me that those preoccupied with how movies are delivered have for years written off "physical media" (i.e., movies on discs) as "dead" even though the evidence shows it isn't happening and won't for years to come. Technology will need to make many more huge leaps before one can ever view films with the level of picture and sound quality many film lovers demand without having to slide a disc into a player, especially with the technical requirements of today's 3D movies.

Granted, the older DVD technology is phasing out. But it is yielding to the Blu-ray just as videocassettes once gave way to the technically superior DVD. This is evolution. Far from being dead, physical media has years of life left and must be preserved because there is no better alternative. Pundits aside, Blu-ray for the foreseeable future remains the finest technology to preserve the impact and enjoyment of watching movies at home.

We've come a long way from those flickering, silent screens which were accompanied only by a person playing a piano. What has remained constant is that people then and now have always sought out the magic one feels after watching a truly memorable film. For movie lovers it doesn't matter whether that magic comes at a theater or through a disc, an electronic stream, a satellite or a wireless device as long as it is delivered through the best possible experience.

I don't see what's insufficient about DVD sound quality.
Wait till George Lucas reads that.

The Alberta Government's film rating website, which publishes a list of recent trailer classifications, has been updated today with a rating for a Prometheus trailer.

The website lists the trailer as "Prometheus (trailer v6)", is 1.03 minutes long, and they have classified it with the Canadian rating 14A, which stands for "14 Accompaniment" and means persons under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. In the US this could be seen as somewhere between a PG-13 and an R rating.

The trailer is likely to be released to the public within the next few days, with high bets on it being attached to adult comedy The Sitter, which is released tomorrow (Friday, December 9th) in the US and Canada, and is distributed by 20th Century Fox. Although there have been rumors that the trailer will be released on-line on Monday December 12th.

My guess is it will be attached to The Sitter tomorrow for US and Canadian audiences, with a worldwide premiere online on Monday.
