[Spoiler Warning] ‘Prometheus’ Deleted Scene Revealed, More On That ****** Alien, Elder Engineers!

2-prometheus-homeplanet

So much for being done with Ridley Scott’s Prometheus.

While I felt there was plenty clarity in the Alien prequel, many readers have felt confused by the lack of explanation. We learned quite a bit in Ryan Daley’s story posted this morning about the newly released “Prometheus: The Art of the Film”. And while his look inside revealed quite a bit, my own digging discovered even more.

Major spoilers do follow. You have been warned.

First, the opening sequence revealed a man, on some planet, drinking some ooze that causes him to break down into DNA that apparently created life. Some of the production art revealed “Elder Engineers” that were originally part of this sequence. Early trailer descriptions also revealed these cloaked figures were actually in the film, while IMDB once listed both Darwin Shaw and Matthew Rook cast as these “Elders”. The thought is that these Elders are actually the creator of the Engineers, a reveal saved for the sequel. A deleted scene perhaps?

The most shocking discover, by far, is that of what appears to be a varient version of the “zombie” Holloway (played by Logan Marshall-Green). In the film, Holloway becomes infected, and thus returns as some sort of zombie version of himself (pictured). BUT, one of the leaked images show that Scott’s original intent was for him to transform into a Xenomorph-ish creature. Readers on the boards indicate they believe this creature to either be Millburn (Rafe Spall) or Fifield (Sean Harris).

Lastly, we’ve also added an image of what appears to be the Engineers’ home planet. This is unconfirmed.

We’ve added all imagery inside for you to carouse through. Tell us what you think!

    Creepy. And fun. I really liked it. I know there were flaws, but I still just loved it.

  • Jasonicus

    Wow, crazy. These pics are from the Art Book?

    that “zombie” (the one who attacks the crew and ends up getting burned by flame throwers and then run over) is without a doubt, no question about it, Sean Harris’s Fifield. it’s not Halloway because we see Halloway willingly give up his life and get torched by Vickers earlier in the movie and the idiot Millburn’s body was back in the cave/ship (with the snake thing that explodes out of his mouth at the crew). i can’t wait for this book. i pre-ordered it months ago and they changed it’s release date from the 8th to the 12th.

    oh, i agree Mr.D, that the top pic is what was going to become of Halloway. but the top pic (which seems to be Halloway’s fate) and the 2nd pic (mutating/zombie Fifield) aren’t the same.

    1st we learned that the reason the Space Jockeys (that’s the name im sticking w/) want 2 kill us is cuz we crucified Jesus (a savior Space Jockey) and now we have these Elder-neers. they created them, them created us…

    even judgin it on its own merits and NOT trying 2 connect/compare it 2 the other movies, i didn’t enjoy Prometheus. 2 many plot holes, inconsistencies, and unanswered questions

    ill admit that sum of these ideas are creepy in a good way (a space jockey homeworld, a mysteries Elder race) and that Dameon Lindelof placed a number of religious themes in the film in a subtle way (2000 yrs ago we angered the Space Jockeys, and the film taking place around Christmas), but 2 many of these details seem awkward to begin with or as if they belong in another franchise, not in “the same Alien universe” we’ve heard so much about
