I read a Ridley interview. he said initially the project started out to be a pure prequel. then other things got in the way and it sat for years. he went back to it and decided that he wanted it be able to stand alone and apart from the Alien movies....but in his words "it shares DNA with the Alien series". it's going to be very interesting to see how he can pull that off. the space jockey was obviously "chest bursted" as clearly seen in Alien and Aliens the uncut version. the space jockey is alive and well in this movie as seen in the trailers. I......can't......wait! I'm stoked.
by the way......I LOVE it that some reviews are bad. I find that often times I really dig moview that critics hate.
