You’ve seen it. So why would you be all that interested in going to see the movie? They would NEVER have done that in 1979 and gone and shown you the ALIEN before the movie was released, and they didn’t. They kept it a secret.
What I think we’re seeing in the trailers is in fact the very thing that wiped the Space Jockey’s out. I think they are called ‘Engineers’. They may be a creation of the Space Jockey’s? A biological experiment that went wrong and the creation killed the creator!
Scott is talking about a Prometheus 2 already. We know most of the crew, if not all of the crew of the Prometheus and the ship itself are wiped out in Prometheus, so what would another movie have left to tell?
Most people, I have noticed, are reaching for obvious conclusions. That they’ve seen a Space Jockey in the trailers. That the planet is Acheron LV426 and that the Space Jockey ship we see is the very same one we saw in ALIEN.
I’m certain that none of that is the case and fans need to look deeper. Study what they see, and listen very carefully to what Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof say, and what they DON’T say.
After all if we HAVE in fact already seen the Space Jockey, and it turns out to be nothing more than that humanoid ‘engineer’ in a suit, wouldn’t YOU be a bit pissed off? I’ve patiently waited for 33 years for an answer to what the Space Jockey was and I’ve never thought of it as a humanoid in a suit!
As for that opening shot of the Engineer next to the waterfall. Fans are assuming the planet is earth. Maybe it is? But what if it’s the planet we see in the movie? It too could have waterfalls. After all it has clouds, so precipitation, thus flowing water. The huge “UFO” shaped ship may have dropped him off, possibly to protect the ampoule room? The Engineer becomes resentful of doing the Space Jockey’s bidding and decides to have some power for himself. There’s a battle and he kills his masters.
Dead Space Jockey's?
They brought fire and technology to earth to help the human race progress, then left them signs, an invitation to go and meet them when they had evolved into a sophisticated enough life form that they could communicate with the Space Jockey race.
I don’t think any live Space Jockey’s are seen in Prometheus, except perhaps in the last nine minutes? But perhaps “Prometheus 2” is in fact about a time when human and Space Jockey meet?
Now, we wait for more………………………………
