The Alien franchise is a beloved horror and sci-fi staple, so naturally Hollywood tries to breathe new life into it every few years. In 2012, Ridley Scott made his return to the universe of Alien with Prometheus-- a not-quite prequel that follows a space crew as they deal with some scary alien threats called Engineers.
Prometheus does raise some questions though. Like why haven’t the crew been briefed on their mission until AFTER they’ve been in cryo-sleep for several years? Why does everybody take off their helmets in an alien cave? How did they get lost in the cave with amazing mapping technology? Why did they suddenly want to touch that horrifying alien snake thing? Why did David spike Charlie’s drink? What was the point of Weyland plot twist? Why was that Engineer chasing Elizabeth at the end?
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to Prometheus! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

  • I think they are trying to tell you the real history of our existence. That the bannished fallen stars/angels made hybrids (giants from fairytales) and they did the dirty work for Humans. The giants got betrayed by the humans in the past history. There was a pact, humans broke it. Research Flat Earth, for the world can never be a spinning ball of water with liquid stone fire inside. That is an impassibility and therefore a Lie.

  • K this movie definitely has PROBLEMS, but I've always been fond of it despite how messy it feels. On the same playing field as Alien? Pff nooo, but you could say the same of almost every Alien sequel/prequel. I will say that a lot of the "holes" people complain about in this movie are very easily explained if you pay attention, but yes it's poorly edited and could have used at least a few scene rewrites. But I think we'd all be much kinder to Prometheus as a flawed but ambitious movie if the misleading marketing and subsequent negative response against it didn't cause Fox to pressure R Scott to suddenly ditch everything they were building up to in favor of a comparatively unoriginal Alien Covenant movie. Covenant did to Prometheus what the Last Jedi did to Force Awakens, made it an impossible mess of a franchise.
