Gah... Let me know when there's a trailer that isn't a shaky-cam, shot-flicker-flicker-flicker, subliminal-image nightmare...

I liked watching Big Love, especially the scenes between Harry Dean Stanton and Bill Paxton since they were both killed by aliens.

omeganuepsilon: Tyrone Slothrop: This is the only film I'm actually excited about seeing this summer. I'll see other movies like Batman and The Avengers, but their trailers just haven't looked that good.

Me too. As an aside, kind of. Most modern movies, even the biggest, Batman as you note, fail to deliver a very epic vibe. Yeah, it's cool, but not an epic.

You could have a 200 million budget, and it doesn't feel like the studio's tried very hard or did as well as some movies from even back in the 70's, but the 80's for sure. The wane started in the 90's, I think.

Prometheus is the fist trailer I've seen in years that even looks like it's got that epic feel to it, but then again, it's done by some of the same people that were doing that form in decades past

/not the overused "epic" of today, but a real legendary tale

When I watch a "quality" movie, I want to be transported. Alien(s) did good with that, and as bad as the sequels were to some, they did it a bit as well.

I think what part of it is, most modern movies tend to beat you over the head with motivation or explanation or even morals, or the hipster vibe of "look how creative we are, this shiat isn't real, it's that imaginative! Look how deep we are, how meta.."

Some of the greats didn't care, they just gave the project their all. Sure, you watch some today and they're a little cheesy(culture drift can do that).

/ranting cause I'm really unsure how to express that vibe, it's a know it when you see it thing
//a big part of it is immersion

MorePeasPlease: thecpt: No there was a sequel to raiders. Only one though, but it had sean connery in it.

The one where Indy figured all the stuff out that his dad had spent his life studying?
Where the hot evil chick bedded both, but really only liked Indy?

Why cast Sean farking Connery if you're going to make his character so weak?


He remembered his Charlemagne "Let my armies be the rocks and the trees and the birds in the sky..."

Plant Rights Activist: so... do we know if this is supposed to be a thriller or an action flick, yet?


Looks to be a thriller. The Prometheus appears to be a scientific vessel, not a military one, and from the glimpses shown, most of the time people are running away from stuff, not attacking it.

GungFu: The Thing, the recent one.

Worst. Remake, Reboot, Prequel, Sequel thingy. Ever.


You know what pissed me off most about the reboot? The fact they entirely missed the point of what The Thing was trying to accomplish in the Carpenter film. It was only killing when it had to at the American camp, and it's primary objective was to hide among the humans so it could reach civilization with them, or finish the construction of it's ship if that failed.

The reboot was just a slasher flick. You might as well have replaced the alien with Jason or Michael Myers.
 
2012-03-17 02:58:22 PM  
looks like its getting back to the "body horror" roots, which was essentially what the first Alien movie was.

Maybe that's why the Thing was so much more cautious in the American camp: because the direct approach had failed.

Anyway, Prometheus looks cool. It suffers from Phantom Menace syndrome a bit though. All the technology is much shinier and fancier than the 'later' movies.

I think I was most annoyed that they didn't tie the American scientist in with Carpenter's version. I guess they technically didn't need to, but it seems like they left it open solely so it'll be a semi-happy ending. Otherwise it was a bit dispiriting that the prequel's graphics were worse than the (admittedly good) effects from the 80s film.

PirateKing: Anyway, Prometheus looks cool. It suffers from Phantom Menace syndrome a bit though. All the technology is much shinier and fancier than the 'later' movies.


hard to deny that, but it looks like they made a good effort at reconstituting the feel of Alien. The space suits seem to have that "cricket pad" look of the ones Jean Giraud designed, complete with the huge faceplate. During the landing sequence, there's a guy at the front of the ship in a space that looks almost identical to the observation blister on the Nostromo, and as the vehicles roll out of the hangar, the one on the right looks awfully like the APC from Aliens.

Looks good to me. I'm definitely going to see it, if for no other reason than to see a Space Jockey actually doing stuff.

StinkyFiddlewinks: CravenMorehead: Mugato: One that doesn't have every frame crammed with as much cartoonish CGI shiat their servers can possibly render.

Yeah, there was hardly any CGI in that.

They built an entire planet for the set, populated the whole thing, waited for creatures to evolve long enough to pollute the air, filmed the movie and then crashed an asteroid into it. That's how Ridley rolls.

...wait a minute!



Okay, smartasses. Of course there's going to be CG in the film. What I'm saying is that it's a sci-fi film that doesn't have a thousand cartoon four-armed Jar Jar Golums running around. It looks like a throwback to sci-fi movies from the '70s with obvious advances in digital tech.
 
2012-03-17 04:27:28 PM  
That trailer was very well produced. I can't think of any many others that have left me wanting more so badly. The Fountain, maybe?

I especially liked how the sound and image played together, like the shots were finishing a musical flourish.

PirateKing: Maybe that's why the Thing was so much more cautious in the American camp: because the direct approach had failed.


That not a bad point, but I think we're giving the director and writers far too much credit.

Just a bad movie all around in my opinion. The only thing in my opinion it really accomplished was proving a remake/prequel/whatever really wasn't necessary. But I'll also admit I'm biased since Carpenter's is a favorite of mine. Setting aside the questionable behavior of the alien, the movie just didn't add a single thing to the story put forth by Carpenter. No mysteries revealed, no further expansion of the alien's motives. It's basically just a remake of Carpenter's with a female lead and more gore.

2012-03-17 05:21:55 PM  

kim jong-un: So I'm guessing the concept is:

1. Humanity finds clue to origin of man that didn't start on Earth.
2. Epic search for info begins.
3. Humanity discovers that Earth happened to be one giant Masada where a small colony of people happened to live unnoticed after a near complete galactic extinction event wiped out the earlier galactic human civilization?


Nope. The story here has actually been established since the first Alien movie, though a movie on it has never been done. The Prometheus is a survey ship, and while checking out a new planet, they discover the crash-site of an ancient alien ship filled with xenomorph eggs. They report the discovery, but that's the last message received from them. So the story this film tells is that of the Prometheus, its crew, and how they all died (presumably).


Ripley's tug crew was given orders upon leaving for their towing mission to respond to all potential scavenging opportunities and directed along a return course that would put them in range of Prometheus' distress beacon in an attempt by Weyland-Yutani to recover the xenomorph for bio-weapons research. After one of the beasties runs loose on board and smashes the synthetic placed in the crew by W-Y to covertly ensure the retrieval mission succeeds, it reveals all this to Ripley.

Yeah, it's the same with the Star Wars prequels. All the settings in the prequels were opulent cities, the capital of the galaxy, etc. Tatooine looked the same. In the original movies the settings were mostly makeshift rebel bases. The Imperial ships and Cloud City were pretty advanced. There's no discrepancy between the two trilogies, they were just different circumstances. Same deal here.

skinink: Saw "Alien" as a kid and I thought the best part of that movie was seeing Sigourney Weaver in her panties.

And the Alien was a close second.


She was pretty hot in her day. One of the many examples to bring up whenever someone starts throwing around the "guys who like small breasts are pedophiles" line.

Apparently the trailer wasn't supposed to be released until Monday. The only way I found out about it was through some comments on the Prometheus Facebook page. It was a VERY well hidden Easter egg on the Weyland Industries web page (new window)

That doesn't bug me too much. When you consider that the Nostromo was a space-tug/scavenge vessel, and the Prometheus was a top-of-the-line survey ship, you'd expect the "younger" Nostromo to look dirtier, cheaper, and in worse shape.

There's gotta be a REASON to tell a prequel. Backstory is fine, and maybe telling that backstory would be interesting, but if there's nothing pertinent there then the movie fails. A Thing prequel is the absolute worst example of this. Yeah, the Norwegians found the Thing first. Yeah, it killed them all. Yeah, two of them escaped and chased the Thing in dog form to the American camp. There's a movie there, sure, but did it really need to be told? We can surmise for ourselves what happened to the Norwegian camp just from the American excavations of it. Makes the prequel superfluous.

Star Wars is another example. Yeah, I guess it's interesting to see how Darth Vader became Darth Vader, but did we really need to know how he did it? More to the point, would seeing what Darth Vader was like as a precociously idiotic child illuminate anything about his psyche as the force-choking supervillain? No. In fact, it ruins his character arc.

An example of a prequel that worked: X-Men First Class. Probably because the bromantic adventures of Charles and Erik could conceivably be more fascinating than the movies we got of them as estranged old men. How they met, how they fought alongside one another and how they grew apart is some very meaty backstory, worthy of a trilogy all by itself. That's why it works. But it very easily couldn't have.

Lord of the Rings for the same reason. I salivate at the thought of someone (PJ?) making a Silmarillion movie. But one thing at a time here.

Prometheus will work if the backstory of the xenomorphs and the space jockey proves to be more interesting than the current incarnations of them. But more importantly, that it NEEDS TO BE TOLD. I don't care if they have to wreck continuity to do it, just tell a damn good story with lots of suspense (the first two alien movies did not show any aliens until an hour into the films).

And I think that's one of the problems/handicaps with prequels. The writers/directors are so stuck on making sure the film is contiguous with the other films in the franchise that they miss the point of making a good movie. And I despise fanbases for this reason. Stop nitpicking and just enjoy the flicks on their own merit. X-Men First Class worked because it completely ignored continuity to the other films to such an extent that its pretty much considered a reboot/alternate universe. And it's a farking good movie for this reason.

Prometheus doesn't have to line up with Alien. In fact, I'm hoping it doesn't. Please, no Nostromo cameo at the end. Just tell a good movie, let it stand out on its own terms instead of rely on other movies for the sake of plot.

Except that, as the war dragged on, you would think that things start breaking down, retrograding to earlier tech, less ships flying in the sky over Coruscant, poverty and unemployment up, and generally life getting worse as the war bleeds resources and the Empire taxes the shiat out of people to pay for more star destroyers, famine and hunger everywhere, buildings falling apart, ships turning into space junk, etc....

But no. There's NOTHING OF THAT in the prequels. Hell, on many of the planets you can't even tell there's a war going on. Almost as if the war isn't even happening or of it is, it doesn't affect anyone at all.
 
2012-03-17 05:45:44 PM  
The reason I still prefer the original over the sequel is because of the understatement and subtlety, while it still remained tense and exciting. This looks true to form in that regard, so I'm definitely excited.

This and The Dark Knight Rises are on my "must see" list for 2012.

The Plinkett reviews of the prequels by Red Letter Media really hit upon this as their key fault. At the end of the day, while there was certainly a story to be told in the prequels, why in the hell make it revolve around Darth Vader? There's really nothing in the original movies that show him to be all that big of a deal at the end of the day.

In A New Hope, he's subordinate to Tarkin, and even Imperial officers talk shiat to him on the Death Star. He's so non-vital he's sent out in a single seat fighter from a base that literally has thousands and thousands of fighters and pilots. Whether or not he's ordered to do so or chooses to do so is never made clear, but either way anyone that's terribly important vital to the Empire or Emperor probably wouldn't make such a decision.

In ESB, he's given some more autonomy and provide a fleet to hunt down the rebels that attacked the Death Star. But in the scheme of things, is that really terribly important? He's sent on a revenge mission at the head of hit squad. It would be something else if he were hunting down the actual leaders of the Rebellion but apparantly that's either left to more important people, or the Empire simple hasn't a fark to give about them or is so uniformed they haven't a clue where to begin looking.

In Jedi, well, he's bossed around by the Emperor and told to go here and there until he finally tires of his shiat and tosses him into the abyss. His death only has meaning since it results from the Emperor's.

Shrugging Atlas: why in the hell make it revolve around Darth Vader?


Because it was established in the first film that he was the last of the Jedi? It was assumed that Obi Wan was dead and the Emperor wasn't introduced as a Force user yet. Obi Wan described Vader as the guy who hunted down and destroyed the other Jedi. So Vader was actually pretty special even in the first film.

hm, I don't recall that. Either way, outside of the font used for the title and some key shots in the trailer, I wouldn't say it's being marketed as an Alien Prequel. Those who didn't know otherwise probably wouldn't pick up on it immediately.
