Now we know about the balls, thanks to the Weyland Industries web site.
Apart from the fact that this is a magnificent Science Fiction image in itself, check out the 'road marker'!
I'd love a 1/72nd scale plastic model kit of this thing!
And here are two more! But what are they for?
And here we see the 'road' opening up! What is down there? The Space Jockey ship?
Good to see Australia make a showing in Prometheus! :) Under Michael Fassbender's index finger is Adelaide, where I live. ;)
Well, we all know what this is! But, why is it there? It looks to be a wall mural or something like that. So, the "ALIEN" race is definitely in existence in this movie, and known about. But; what role does it play in all this?
A dead Space Jockey? If so, it's not the only one they find in there!
More dead Space Jockey's? Number 1 points to forearms, number 2 to hands, 3 knee and legs. Closer to the camera is another one. The question mark points to something unknown. Where are the heads? We've already seen a pic of a dead Space Jockey separated from its head. The same head that is in the scanner back on the Prometheus.
Space Jockey? No. I believe this life form killed the Space Jockey's. Somehow something went wrong with their genetic engineering and this life form took over. I've always seen the Space Jockey's as a peaceful race. Similar to the whale or dolphin.
This thing, we see below, is a killer! A terminator of life. This is NOT what the humans came to see, but this is what was waiting for them!
Now, nearly everybody around the world will think this is a Space Jockey, right?
I do not. Reason? Size for one, it is too small. The Space Jockey we see in Alien is a giant. This thing is only about 7 foot tall.
I do not believe Ridley Scott, or 20th Century Fox would want everybody to see the main reason for seeing this movie, the Space Jockey race, in a trailer before the screening of the movie. Just like they didn't want pictures of the Alien leaked out in 1979 before the opening of ALIEN.
So, what do I think this is?
Well I'm not 100% sure. But as you'll notice in the trailer if you go back and forth at this point in the trailer, looking at it at 1080p, you'll notice that the rib cage is opening/closing and that 'stuff' is growing across its arm, seemingly giving it that bio mechanical look.
I believe the life form we see operating the 'chair' that comes up out of the floor is this thing, suited up ready for space flight. It is not a Space Jockey, but a life form created by them that ultimately turned on them and killed them.
"A king has his reign. And then he dies. It's inevitable."
Is this quote talking about the Space Jockey's, or Peter Weyland? Or something else?
Looking at this scan of the Space Jockey ship we see the chambers in it. Number 1 points to the 'egg chamber' that Kane discovered in ALIEN. Number 2 points to the pilot room where we see the Space Jockey in his chair in ALIEN.
Now, again, many people around the world think this Space Jockey ship is the very same one that we saw in ALIEN. I say no. And here's a good reason why. The Prometheus is obviously crashed into it on purpose, to stop it getting back to earth. Notice the impact point. Very near the ovoid portals that Kane, Dallas and Lambert entered the derelict ship in ALIEN. There is no damage there on the derelict ship in ALIEN. This is NOT the same ship!
Well, what do we have here! What is that life form being held in the clamp above Noomi's head? It looks squid-like from this angle. And who put it there? The robot?
Notice the 'blood' splattered all over the inside of the scanner. Looks like squid ink!
So, has Noomi been impregnated?
The trailer certainly is fantastic. Goose bumps and hairs standing up all the way! I think we will see more of the viral advertising like Peter Wayland's speech and David 8 promo
I think it's like an audience education prior to the movie. So we all know how this came to be and what is going on upon walking into the theatre. Ridley is taking us to school! Science Fiction school!
