I looked up "Prometheus" because I really couldn't remember the legend, other than I knew "Frankenstein" is subtitled "The Modern Prometheus"- and now I think I may have inadvertently spoilered myself. Mad

I'll wait for the film & make up my own mind.

John Carter got a lot of bad reviews but I really enjoyed it.

Looking at the trailers though it seems to me it's going to be about spectacle rather than atmosphere. I'm gutted but I'm sure a lot of people will like it, so fair enough.


You could probably cut a trailer from the original Alien and make it look "all spectacle". I'm still hopeful there'll be plenty of atmosphere in this one!

I remember the original trailer, and to me that looked different. Although I see that's a different point to the one which you made.

I'm not going to keep on whinging about it though.

Lots of stuff on TV about this last night, if like me you were ever intrigued by the space jockey growing out of his chair, get ready for an anticlimax.

This is great. So far I've ignored all they hype, trailers and news about this movie. I even had to switch channels watching Homeland on C4 when they showed a trailer and the next commercial break which featured twitter comments from people who had watched the trailer. Which, I imagine, would be considered brilliant marketing if you're an easily-impressed media type but frankly, I'm going to ignore all the publicity, go to the cinema and watch the movie without exposure to the hype.

Believe me, it'll take a lot to make up for Robin Hood.

I didn't realise that it was an Alien movie, and thought it looked good. I am in two minds about seeing this, though.

Doctor Elizabeth Shaw, a tribute to a companion of a certain time-traveller?

I can see Noomi Rapace becoming something of a fan favourite....

This would be pretty freaky if you made the journey everyday and didn't expect it...

An abandoned French subway station was turned into the set of Prometheus

Quote:
We now live in an era when gonzo viral marketing runs the risk of being more intriguing than the film it's designed to promote. In Paris, the Saint-Martin stop (which has been unused for 73 years) on the Metro's Line 9 was transformed into the extraterrestrial architecture of Prometheus, giving passengers a glimpse of Gigeresque Hell on their daily commute. I hope this set sticks around for years, an artifact of film promotions past, sort of like the Space Jam website.
