Trailer for Ridley Scott's Alien prequel leaked

Terrible footage but here is a good description:



Quote:
  • The trailer starts with the 20th Century FOX logo. You hear a transmission. A woman (which I assume to be Rapace) is saying "...got to stop... was wrong.. so wrong...I'm so sorry...". You can hear the last part very clearly.
  • The first scene shows a spaceship (similar to the one seen in the first leaked trailer) flying towards a planet on the background.
  • Next you see is the surface of a planet and some sort of facility. It kinda looks like a Lunar base to me.
  • Now they show this scene from the Comic-con footage.
  • You can see the film's title forming in the background during most of the trailer. Pretty much like in the introductory scene of Alien.
  • Next is the Ampule room. They show it off from all different angles and finally a close up of the ampules. Suddenly you hear a high pitch scream. It's not human. It sounds like if it was from a facehugger. Then there's a lot of smoke from what seems to be acid corrosion. They show a guy in a spacesuit. He's alone. Screaming and putting his hands over his helmet. It looks just like the Kane/derelict scene in Alien.
  • Now they show the same spaceship from earlier. Same shot as in the first leaked trailer. Flying towards what seems to be a different planet in the background.
  • The next 2 scenes are from the comic-con footage. 1, 2.
  • Now they show Vickers running across a hallway. Same scene as in the first leaked trailer.
  • Next seems to me someone in a spacesuit. Driving a futuristic vehicle in some desert like surface. Heading towards some structure or facility in the middle of nowhere at full speed.
  • Impressive shot of the Iceland waterfalls.
  • Next is this scene from the comic-con footage. They seem to be shooting at something or someone but they don't show it.
  • Next you see is some grey-black serpent like creature. Jumping ala facehugger from some sort of grey-goo cavity. Now they show the whole scene. There's two guys in their spacesuits. One lying on the ground (it seems to be the impregnated guy from earlier) and another one checking on him. The creature jumps from what seems to be the insides of the previous impregnated guy to the other one.
  • Now they show someone with a expression of pain. The guy is still in his spacesuit and someone appears to be holding him in their arms.
  • Now you can see a device or hologram of some sort. It looks like an atom or a planet. I'm not sure if it's a planet or just some molecular structure tbh. The center of the hologram is a single sphere so it should be a planet system. Probably the coordinates to some other world.
  • Now this shot from comic-con.
  • Next is a spaceship being destroyed while in the air.
  • One guy in a spacesuit pouncing at someone else while holding something. It looks like it's going to hurt.
  • Next is the space jockey room. Same as in the Comic-con footage. The center piece of the plate opens and the space jockey chair rotates out of the ground.
  • Next scene shows off a very inflated belly. Like if the person was pregnant but there's something bigger than a chestbuster moving inside. Seems to be Rapace's.
  • Idris Elba yells while aboard of what seems to be the Prometheus.
  • The sandstorm + Rapace spacesuit scene. Same as in the first leaked trailer. Close up of Rapace. She gets hit by the storm and she falls down a pit. It's the scene depicted in the official still released around comic-con.
  • Now you can clearly read Prometheus. The whole title has formed in the background. They show it for a few seconds.
  • Now a close up of Rapace's face. She's in pain. It seems to be the same scene as in the first leaked trailer. The one with the green lasers scanning her belly.
  • Now they show someone in a spacesuit looking at the derelict in the surface of a planet with clear skies.
  • The words "They went looking"
  • The derelict again. It's vertical to the ground. It would be impossible to enter it from the same place as in Alien.
  • The words "for earth's beginning"
  • Still on the same planet. The derelict (or something really big) seems to be falling down from above. The guy in the spacesuit is running away now. Trying not to get crushed.
  • The words "what they found"
  • They now show two guys running away.
  • The words "could be its the end"
  • They show the same guys again. Running away from what appears to be a huge gigerish structure (it feels like it's moving but it's hard to tell). Perhaps the derelict in flight. There's a lot of smoke. What appears to be debris on fire are falling from above. They keep running away from it.
  • The trailer ends.
  • The music reminded me a lot of the one from Inception (the 'horns sounds'). But mixed with what appears to be the music from the original trailer for Alien. Same music during all the trailer.

NewChiefs explanation is as good or better than any other I've ever heard.

It was a gorgeous looking movie, but still could've been so much more IMO.

The Engineer at the beginning is terraforming Earth. The problem is that the sacrificial drink that he uses to terraform earth is contaminated with the black mutagen (which he doesn't realize, hence his look of surprise when it works differently than he expected). The spaceship goes ahead and leaves because it doesn't realize that anything has gone awry.

Meanwhile, The Engineers back on the moon base have now realized there is a contamination outbreak that's out of control (thus the fleeing holograms and massive graves). The mutagen takes over the facility and corrupts all the "normal" material in the storage areas except for the ones in the actual ship (which are arranged differently and don't appear to have the leaking/condesnation issues).

The surviving engineers on the moon go into survival mode, trying to figure out if any of the contaminated mutagen had escaped the planet. The whole holographic scene where they're scanning the universe with 5 of them and find Earth shows them where it escaped to. What I don't understand is why they wouldn't launch an attack no Earth at this point. Maybe they're trying to clean up the contamination on the moon first? Anyway, moving on.

What this means is that humans are actually a result of the mutated/corrupted DNA (similar to an Alien). This is why the Engineer reacts so strongly to them when they wake him. It's not that he hates his creations, it's that humans are a corrupted version of that creation because we were created from a terrafarmer who accidentally used the mutated DNA to create us. I also like this because it explains humans resilience and destructive nature (after all, we end up beating the Aliens, right?). The mutagen just "weaponized" us differently and more subtly than the other creations.

Anyway, I read other explanations after I went to bed last night which also make sense, but I kind of like mine as an alternative way of looking at it.
Sounds real

This movie still disappoints me. It could have been so much better. The characters were shallow attempts at best. Ripley is such an amazing character in the original series. It felt like watching Lost, where there ultimately was no coherent attempt at anything real. Just the creation of strange occurrences to initiate speculation to questions that could not be logically answered (especially with the minor amount of detail given to the audience).

It was also a complete waste of Idris Elba, which is a terrible sin in and of itself.

For any faults the movie did have, I am seriously hoping Scott gets around to the sequel that picks up when she escaped on the ship.

I'm still genuinely interested in him exploring the whole Architect plot line.

It's still absolutely visually stunning, and the concept is strong- it just needed to be tightened up on some the of the loose ends, and some of those gaps could have been purposely left to explore in future films.

I think they'd do better cutting ties with the guys involved with Lost , Damon and Co.

So did the Engineers on home planet say "screw it" when they learned the moon base mission was ****ed? No attempt to nuke earth from space thereafter?

And how did Prometheus' captain even think to bring along a mini christmas tree along for the ride?

Overall a good flick compared to all the other garbage.
