The LA Times has an interesting article on Prometheus today, and there’s definitely a smattering of the Alien mythology in the pic they included.
It’s interesting that they ran this exchange with co-writer Damon Lindelof, “What the two do have in common, Lindelof said, is that the universe in which each takes place shares a similar aesthetic. When the writer signed on to the film, Scott was already deep into discussions with production designer Arthur Max, whose résumé includes work on “Se7en” and “Gladiator.” Scott took Lindelof to what he described as a “thick, dramatic vault door” where five twentysomethings who “looked like they were playing video games” were rendering images of planets, creatures and space suits.”
I think at this point it’s safe to say that the films share more than a “common aesthetic”.
