More Prometheus!

Prometheus is certainly creating a lot of commentary and theories over the Internet! Based on what I've been reading and what people have sent to me I have discovered more things to look at, discuss and wonder about.

The control room.

There is a lot of things to see in this room. Let's go through them:

A. These look a lot like galaxies. Are they systems that the Space Jockey's are "fixing" or developing?

B. Entry. Would this be tall enough to allow Space Jockey entry?

C. A chair. Though too small for a Space Jockey. It would fit that humanoid we've been speculating over.

D. "Goo", well that's the best name I've got for it at the moment! Looks like it 'comes to life' when operational. What could it be?

The red circle surrounds what I'm speculating could be the Space Jockey's Homeworld.

Here's that chair again. Notice that it's 'human' size. The red arrows point to what looks like a control panel. I have seen an image, sent in to me by Frank from Norway, where what we see here as white egg size shapes, glow a luminous yellow-green!

Obviously the red circle is the platform from which the Space Jockey chair rises out of.

A. Looks to be a ramp.

B. The chair.

C. The control panel.

D. The sleeping pods.

So if the chair is human size those sleeping pods are at least double the length of a human!

Here we see the back of the chair (red circle).

A. Control panel.

B. "Goo".

Now, here we have something that I hadn't noticed initially and was pointed out to me by Frank from Norway! On the left it looks like the sleeping pod is either open or empty. Also, on the right we see the chair. So, that puts this humanoid individual standing just in front of the control panel. As we've seen from the images above, the chair is human size, so, so is this guy. He may well be tall, even 7 foot tall, but not a giant by any means.

Question is, has he come out of the sleeping pod on the left? Questions, questions?!


Notice the writing on them. Same type of writing on the big head. Also, what is it on top of the ampules??

Dead Space Jockey?

My, my, what here we here! Two of the crew members are studying the head/helmet/ skull. You can just make out an eye socket (blue arrow is pointing to it). Over on the right is the body/suit. Now this image just leads to many questions and no answers!

Why is the head separate from the body?

If it is a body, who/what has killed it?

Why is it dead?

One thing is certain! It is BIG! I recall reading somewhere that the Space Jockey in ALIEN would have been 30 feet high? Well this one doesn't seem as big. A female perhaps? Or a juvenile?


Whether it's the Prometheus we've seen in the trailer or it's the Megellen. One thing that I've wondered about is if this 'pod' we see outlined in blue, is something that has descended down from the main body of the ship and is still attached to the ship, or if is like the cargo pod on the Space 1999 Eagle transporters, and can be dropped off and left. Could the Dropship have more than one of these pods?

Imagine if the dropship drops off a couple of these things then goes back to the mother ship, leaving the explorers on their own down on the planet while the mother ship supports from orbit?

Now, I've included this image for more than the obvious reason that Charlize looks amazing in this shot! But, also because this shot seems to show the command element of the crew watching from the command ship. Which is either landed on the planet, or in orbit. Is there more than one expedition going on at once?

At some stage Charlize is running away from the crashing Space Jockey ship with Noomi. So she leaves the command ship at some point. Is that when we see her running down the corridor and into the escape pod??

Hanger Bay.

What is on fire here? The crew are desperately trying to burn something, but what?

Something small, running around at ground level?

Burning with purpose!


Watching one of the teaser trailers I noticed that there is a door rising up in this scene (A). Followed by a blast of 'steam' (B). A sealed room perhaps??

I generally look like this at the Dentist! Noomi is not happy here! Has she been impregnated??

The hole!

What the hell is with that hole! That is very creepy looking! What is down there? Why is there water running into it?

Also notice the stalagmites, similar to what we see in the shot with the vehicles heading back to the dropship. And more writing on the entrance door.

That head!

Some people still seem to think this is a helmet. Maybe they're right. However, just to illustrate my point. If it belongs to the humanoid we see standing next to the Space Jockey chair the eye sockets would be way too wide for a humanoid head. I'm still going with skull.

Anyway, that's all for now.

These are great, I never would have spotted any of these! I personally really hope the blue humanoids are NOT the SJs, I will be really disappointed if they look human. I'm hoping that the redesign RS promised in interviews was just to make them more mobile versions of the Pilot, and that the blue humanoids are the third dangerous thing we were promised - perhaps the result of the 'rape' we keep hearing about? In any case, I'm sure I'll really enjoy 'Prometheus' - I haven't been this excited about a movie in YEARS :)

What's an "RS"?

Ridley Scott :)

One thing to point out. While the "chair" that is referenced multiple times may be 'human-sized' in real-life (as a prop), that doesn't necessarily mean that it is intended to be human-sized "on camera" within the context of the film.

The chair could be intended to be 30' tall "on camera"; all depends on the perspective they shoot the scene in.

Gekko Boss said...

That's very true. However, in the trailer we see a human actor on that set, so we have live action scale, and from that it looks to be as we see, the chair at the control panel is human size, not Space Jockey size.

Looks like a person in the distance in the first image. Where you labeled and circled, the "SJ's home planet". Giving size and scale of the room, either they're very far away, or the chair really is big.

Hi there great read, loved it! Not sure if you have noticed but in the screen cap of the of the "man" leaping off the top of the Vehicle in the cargo bay while the crew member is "cleaning" something with a flame thrower...to the left of the guy leaping and above the crew members head..there is a huge greenish splat on the wall and light, ihad never noticed it before until now. Looks like a something has been splatted.

Gekko Boss said...

Yes it does look like a splat in the still. But if you look at the trailer you'll notice that it's embers rising up above the crew member who seems to be burning something at his feet.
