Prometheus Image Reveals Two Space Jockey Suits

No matter what Ridley Scott continues to say, the first Prometheus trailer confirmed that the upcoming science-fiction blockbuster has the makings of being an Alien prequel. Which is fine. It’s actually preferred. And a new image shared with the L.A. Times shows what appear to be two Space Jockey suits. Take a look for yourself.



So yeah, this will be an Alien prequel. Why not just call a “spade” a “spade,” as the old saying goes? In case you haven’t seen Scott’s 1979 masterpiece in years, the Space Jockey was the mysterious, fossilized alien creature spotted sitting in a chair, or on some throne of bizarre technology. Scott, at one point, promised the Space Jockey’s back story – and that still may be coming – but then he changed his tune to say that Prometheus will be a standalone story with threads that might connect with Alien.

That’s Noomi Rapace, the original Lisbeth Salander, in the photo. She’s standing in an alien tunnel, and if you are impressed by the authentic look of the sets, that’s because Scott and his team are going for an epic scope that calls to mind the best of David Lean, director of Lawrence of Arabia.

“We wanted to make the movie feel big by having the characters be small in big spaces,” said screenwriter Damon Lindelof (Lost). “That connected to the larger themes we were talking about — that we’re all just these little gnats crawling around on our little planet.”

But a planet that’s connected to Alien, right? Right?!
