In 1979 20th Century Fox released Alien. There have been many imitations of this film to be sure, but none, IMO, come even close to matching the white-knuckle terror and suspense of this classic science fiction movie. The story: the crew of the deep space salvage tug Nostromo is awakened from their hypersleep to answer what is believed to be a distress beacon from a desolate planet. On the planet's surface they discover a derelict space ship...and something much,much worse: a malevolent life form that breeds inside a human host. ----Discuss your take on this classic sci-fi/horror film here. :)

I don't think we have to worry especially with Mr. Scott in the director's chair. He's proven himself a more than capable director.

If this is successful I gurantee you Fox will commission him for another and James Cameron has also expressed interest in working with Ridley Scott on an Alien film. I think if those two work together on an alien flick then we could have one of the best if not the best film in the franchise.

Watching this leaked trailer absolutely has my psyched to watch the first official trailer for this film. winky thumbz up

I've always wondered what happens to someone who is caught leaking one of these movie trailers. Does the studio that owns the film rights prosecute those who leak these trailers in any way, e.g. having those guilty of this jacked up and arrested by the police?

I honestly have no idea what happens to those people who leak photos/videos online. I know if it's a full blown film then they could get arrested.

Anyone care to venture a guess as to whether the images in the below video will accurately depict what the "space jockey" aliens look like in Prometheus(2012)?

Below is a post I have copy and pasted from the "DVD on sale" thread, but I wanted to put it here as well just to make sure everyone who should see it actually could. Great deal and I wouldn't want any Alien fans to miss out on this sale if they wanted this set:

Amazon is currently running an awesome "Cyber Monday Deals Week" offer on the Blu-Ray Alien Quadrilogy boxed set for just 40.99. I was notified of this sale today in my email and I don't know if it is a 1 day sale or running for the rest of the week. Needless to say, anyone who doesn't already own these films should jump now at this awesome price:

Ridley Scott: "There will be no 'original' xenomorph(s) in the Prometheus movie": http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/27603

Interesting interview. Some of the readers who read this story(and brief interview) posted their reactions, many of them not only overly negative but also IMO misguided, including this one:

No xenomorphs? Fuck you, Scott! The movie will be 100% shit!

Looks like somebody just took a production photo and tacked it on at the end of actual the trailer. Maybe it's from Prometheus, maybe it's not. Either way, it's clearly not a new trailer.

A new one sheet poster for Prometheus(2012) has hit the web. The poster prominently features a human head like monolith: http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/51864/international-prometheus-one-sheet-light-head

I wonder if this monolith was built by the space jockeys... ?
