A new image from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus hit the web today. And while it’s similar to a shot that can be glimpsed in the teaser, it has a really clean composition that makes it pop. It also reveals an interesting new component.

Allowing us to take a closer look at the shot, it reveals a human form at the center of its dazzling light show. Perhaps this is a visual indicator of some of Prometheus‘ ostensible “who made who” themes. And it all takes place inside an unmistakably Giger-esque design.

The 1,350 person audience at TED2012 – the flagship conference for the non-profit dedicated to “Ideas Worth Spreading” – was just treated to the following mind-blowing short video conceived and designed by Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof, directed by Luke Scott and created exclusively for the TED2012 audience.

Ridley Scott Conceiving 'Prometheus' Sequel

 Ridley Scott Conceiving Prometheus Sequel

Ridley Scott’s return to Alien franchise was originally conceived as a trilogy all stitched together to set up his iconic 1979 sci-fi horror pic.

With the prequel Prometheus hitting theaters June 8 in a flurry of hype, Scott is once again thinking “sequel”.

In speaking to EW about the upcoming Blade Runner, Scott reveals that he’s “also thinking about what the hell I might do for a ‘Prometheus 2.’” as he knocks the wood coffee table and grins.

Those keeping up with the Prometheus mythos know that the film is supposed to set up exactly how the dead Space Jockey crash landed on the planet. This still leaves plenty of years (or millions of years) to explore. READ MORE

Bet You Forgot Guy Pearce Was In 'Prometheus,' Too

Even though Guy Pearce was confirmed for a role in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, there’s been little to no mention of him. He spoke with MTV today and explained, “I’m only [in the film] for a minute, but it was a real honor to work with Ridley [Scott], to see what was going on,” he said. “I think Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Charlize Theron and everybody will do a really spectacular job.

In addition, Scottish actress Kate Dickie spoke with the Daily Star about her role and reveals some major spoilers. “Kate plays a tough first officer called Mudow, who needs to help her fellow crew members become acclimatised to their removal from cryo-sleep after a long space journey which ends on an apparently barren planet,” she explained in the scan courtesy of AvP Galaxy. “With their muscles wasted from five years without use, she helps them to get fit – only for them to fall victims to horrible creatures that begin stalking them for food.

 Its a Space Jockey Extravaganza in Prometheus Screengrabs! Updated in HD!

Ok, so the trailer for Prometheus is finally online. We’ve reveled in it at least once; some of us have watched it 14 times (I know, I’m sick in the head). On the surface it’s just (just?!) a mind-blowing sci-fi horror flick that taps into the soul of Ridley Scott’s 1978 Alien, but it’s actually much, much more…

From the pods to the Space Jockey rising out of the ground with his enormous canon (obviously a moment from the film’s finale, which will set the stage for the big discovery in Alien), there’s no doubt in my mind that this Damon Lindelof-penned flick is an authentic prequel to said film.

Thumbing frame-by-frame through the trailer we’ve uncovered quite a few freeze-frame treasures that range from the aforementioned Space Jockey rising out of the ground to the head of a Jockey sitting on a bed, and even what looks to be a device that channels the alien race. It looks like all sorts of awesome.

Wanna See a Dead Space Jockey From 'Prometheus'?

 Wanna See a Dead Space Jockey From Prometheus?

I seriously don’t think I’ve been excited for a film this much since Freddy vs Jason came out back in 2003. I’ve been so pumped for Prometheus – the prequel to Ridley Scott’s Alien – that I’ve been gazing over images and looking at all of the teaser clips over and over again.

The point, yes, yes, the point. While other horror sites will discover what I’m about to show you in about a month and eventually report it as “fresh” news (see The Darkest Hour alien images), we discovered that one of the images released by Twentieth Century Fox carries a look at a dead Space Jockey…and it was right under all of our noses!

 Ridley Scott Talks Prometheus Space Jockeys, H.R. Giger and Xenomorphs

Filmophilia conducted a pretty lengthy interview with Ridley Scott, director of Twentieth Century Fox’s sci-fi horror Prometheus, the assumed prequel to his 1979 Alien.

It’s been quite a month for Twentieth Century Fox and Prometheus, their presumed prequel to Alien directed by franchise creator Ridley Scott. Keeping the excitement in momentum, by clicking the above or below still you’ll now find our new gallery of hi-res imagery!

In addition, Tom Rothman, CEO of Fox, spoke with MTV about the recent trailer leak. “I heard some of it leaked, which wasn’t so good,” he said. “That’s not fair. It’s heartbreakingly unfair, because … the quality of the visuals is as spectacularly beautiful, shot in 3-D compositionally the way only a master could do it,” Rothman added. “For some early, early, early, early half-baked, half-assed test to leak, it’s so unfair.

And speaking on the Alien connection he explains: “I’ll tell you the great thing: It’s way bigger than that. The ideas are way bigger, way more original and — it’s a scary word — way more profound.

'Prometheus' to Carry Recognizable Creatures

 Prometheus to Carry Recognizable Creatures

All of the secrecy behind Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is getting a bit annoying, considering the entire plot leaked online months ago, and that it’s already been confirmed by multiple cast members that it’s got the DNA of Scott’s 1979 breakthrough Alien. Still, every interview consists of annoying “we can’t talk about it”-type responses…even though a series of new images (and the synopsis) confirm everything known for months.

Adding some blurbs with the new batch of imagery, EW talked with the cast and got yet another one of the Prometheus crew to confirm the connection. “There’s definitely a link to ‘Alien’,” claims Michael Fassbender before adding, “There’s creatures in it that you’ll recognize.

But other cast members, like Charlize Theron, are annoyingly playing coy. Says the actress, “I think people should really let go of the idea that it’s an ‘Alien’ film.

Here’s an idea, get your press team to meet with the entire cast and crew and decide what can and can’t be revealed. All of this back and forth is getting annoying, especially when they aren’t fooling anyone. And just for the f-ck of it, here’s the entire plot crunch just as big middle finger to people like Theron. Read it if you dare.

All of the answers will eventually be revealed on June 8. Prometheus is probably my number one most anticipated film of 2012. What’s yours? READ MORE

Ridley Scott Leaks Pretty Huge 'Prometheus' News Linking 'Alien'

 Ridley Scott Leaks Pretty Huge Prometheus News Linking Alien

It beginning to hit a point where there’s just no way around avoiding Prometheus spoilers. The entire plot has already been let out of the bag and various stars have confirmed it shares the same DNA as Scott’s breakthrough 1979 Alien. In an interview with Speakeasy, Scott talks about the film’s central metaphor and also revealed something huge about the final eight minutes of the film. You have been warned.

The central metaphor of Prometheus is about a “higher being” who challenges the gods, and the gods don’t want to give him fire, says the site. “Fire is our first form of technology,” Scott says, and so by taking fire, the higher being is punished “in perpetuity in a horrible fashion.” Much like the story of the mythological god, Prometheus, who stole fire from Zeus and for his actions was bound to a rock with an eagle eternally devouring his liver.

But the big news is that the concluding eight minutes of the Prometheus story evolve into “a pretty good DNA of the ‘Alien’ one.” Early reports were that Prometheus leads up to the space jockey crash landing and setting up the events of Alien.

Massive Structures Built on the Set of 'Prometheus'

Only because I’m sick of receiving threatening legal documents from Twentieth Century Fox, we’re going to link out to AVP Galaxy (link #1, link #2) who have a handful of pretty badass behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Ridley Scott’s now-filming Prometheus.

They write about an airlock that looks a lot like the exterior of the Nostromo airlock and that at the top of the piece you can see a logo that looks like a cross between the W-Y logo from Aliens and the bird wings logo of Alien. The other two pictures show the cavern entrance but fully closed, you can see the hieroglyphs on the door and the landing leg from the promotional image. The second set of pics are location shots on an Icelandic forum.
