The Ridley Scott Prometheus quotes.

I’ve gone through the teaser trailers and written down Ridley Scott’s quotes. I think they tell a lot, yet give us nothing! J Here are my thoughts.

The Ridley Scott quotes.

“So here we are. I’m back again.”

And thank goodness too! It’s been far too long! He seems happy to be back doing Science Fiction.

“It’s epic. Not by just definition of the scale of sets. It’s about the very grand ideas and notions. The surprising things that will appear to be small and yet will be enormous.”

Wow. All of it is in that quote! But just what could it be? What is it that could be considered insignificant and yet is everything? I’d say that it’s not the Space Jockey or its ship. So, something else? The chest burster perhaps? The eggs?

“The surprise is in the story.”

I’d say whatever the surprise is, we haven’t seen it in the trailer yet. Ridley likes surprises. He likes to get people to think. And we’re certainly doing that!

“It’s all about everything.”

I’m guessing this is to do with the genesis of human life?

“I’m thrilled to be doing another science fiction…..”

Generally if one is happy doing what they do, they do it well!

“The cast find an establishment which is not what they expect it to be. What we find in it, dangerous elements that in a heartbeat are capable of eviscerating all of them.”

Now, not being an English scholar, I had to look-up “eviscerating” because it is a word I’d never heard before and I must say I was a bit surprised by what I found!

Medical Dictionary

evis·cer·ate definition

Pronunciation: /i-ˈvis-ə-ˌrāt/
Function: vb
-at·ed ; , -at·ing ; vt 1 : to remove the viscera of
2 : to remove an organ from (a patient) or the contents of (an organ)
vi : to protrude through a surgical incision or suffer protrusion of a part through an incision

Just what the hell happens to them in that “establishment”!

Also, if the “establishment" is not what they expected it to be, just what were they thinking it was going to be? Was what they find on earth a trap to lure them back to our maker to be toyed with??

btw eviscerating in this context I think just refers to an alien teaering them apart/killing them rather than any medical terminology.
