Alright the new Prometheus trailer just showcased some interesting stuff. The number one thing to me is that the Space Jockey thing from the movie Alien actually looks to be just a suit of some kind. Trailers can be deceiving so we will have to wait and see. The movie looks to be filled with some amazing cgi. The special effects on the vehicles, spaceships and other aircraft look to be amazing. I can’t wait to see what all of this looks like in actual 3d. Peppered throughout the trailer are some more technical effects such as holograms that are sure to pop out when you put on the 3d glasses. For all the Alien fans out there, I’m pretty sure it’s safe to assume that one of the characters is an android who appears to be very interested in all of the findings of other lifeforms.
If you look at the picture above you can see what looks like a human arm in the Space Jockey suit. In the trailer the arm moves and you can see everything more clearly. I remember in the movie Alien, that the space jockey actually had it’s ribs or chest burst outward, implying that an alien had gestated in it. I wonder if Prometheus will show this happening.
In this picture we can see the spaceship that appears to be the main vessel of the cast. I couldn’t help but be reminded of the movie Avatar when seeing the vehicles and holographic displays. Its all being shot in 3d as well. Who knows, maybe Prometheus will give it a run for its money.
