If one film has stirred up John Holmes size geek boners, it’s PROMETHEUS. At first it was an ALIEN prequel, then it was set in the ALIEN universe, then a couple weeks ago we learned the last 8 minutes lead into ALIEN. Now, we have a HUGE FUCKING SPOILER that is confirming one of the three routes: PROMETHEUS is a full on prequel! You want the breakdown? I just read it and it spills all the beans and is full of SPOILERS so stay away… far away…if you want to be surprised.
Highlight in DG’s patented invisi-text!
Weyland-Yutani is definitely in the film, and the catalyst for everything that follows.
Michael Fassbinder’s David is an android, but he becomes something far more important – the progenitor of the human race.
The alien is a bioweapon, meant to wipe out humanity.
The creatures that evolve from humanity are called PROTOFORMS, and one of them evolves into something ALIEN fans will recognize – a STAR BEAST.
It was suggested that this would only turn into an ALIEN prequel in the last moments, but reading the synopsis reveals that what Fassbender said in interviews, that “ALIEN is in the film’s DNA” is pretty accurate. The plot reads exactly like something that would be a precursor to ALIEN.
The plot suggests that the Nostromo going to Zeta 2 Reticuli was planned well in advance. I’m not certain where PROMETHEUS and ALIEN fit together in the timeline, but I’d imagine that ALIEN can’t be more than a hundred years or so afterwards.
FUCK ME! I just made my underwear pregnant.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
