I've already seen the about 10 times, and absolutely love it. I am a huge, huge fan of the Alien movies (particularly the first one, but the second (Aliens) is also amazing, and the third and fourth (Alien? and Alien Resurrection aren't too bad). So I am very excited for this film. I love how they are tieing it into the Alien films without actually showing the Alien (then again, it could possibly appear in the film. No one knows that this point). The creature known as the Space Jockey (which we got a glimpse of in the first Alien movie) will certainly be in this. Prometheus is, without a doubt, my most anticipated movie of the year!

Have you seen the viral marketing videos for the film, by any chance? They're both excellent.

  Looks interesting, but I've never seen any of the aforementioned movies, so this would be new to me.

This movie seems like it will work very well as a standalone piece, so you should be fine seeing it :)

But, should you ever get the chance, I would certainly recommend that you check out Alien. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. The sequel, Aliens, it great as well.

Here is the international trailer. If you pause it at 2:05, you can see something slithering into someone's suit before they grab their helmet, which is beginning to deteriorate with acid:

And the IMAX trailer shows something wiggling above Naomi Repace's character at 1:01

Thanks, MM... love the interviews of Scott!

Btw, one of the most unnerving things to me in the the trailers is the guy looking in his eye at the tiny wormy thing embedded in his corona and wiggling around. <ughghhh, shudder!!!>

Funny you should mention the eye. Something very similar actually appeared in an older painting by H. R. Giger depicting the Alien life cycle:

Notice the top of the pyramid.



H.R. Giger also did some designs for a Dune movie that never happened, and this was one of those designs:



Now look at this from Prometheus:





Also, this mural in Prometheus

looks eerily familiar to the classic Alien




So yeah, needless to say, I'm very, very excited for this movie!

Notice the soundtrack used in the official trailer for the first Alien film in 1979.

Yep. That classic sound effect from Alien has been used since the beginning of this film's promotion, and I'm loving it :D

I'm very excited to find out what that wormy thing is. Reminded me a bit of the monster from the garbage area in A New Hope the way it popped up :P Also, I love the way the helmet collapses onto someone's face. Creepy stuff.
