So Shaw won't be in this? Another ship, the Covenant stumbles onto a planet where they later discover it's a dark and dangerous world

I'm sorry but that sounds an awfully lot like the early plot details of Prometheus. It's kind of like this is what Prometheus should have been if Ridley wasn't trying to stretch his film out straight away into a trilogy and didn't hold back Alien references until later.

I mean you'd think it would just pick up from where the last one did and now we are getting a brand new cast. I wouldn't be surprised if they did a "Alien 3" on Shaws character and she's been killed off screen.

Seriously like I've said they really are better off re-releasing Prometheus as "Alien: Prometheus" and it would go along very nicely to this film "Alien: Covenant" as it sounds similar plot wise and are named after the ships.

Why would they re-release Prometheus? Nobody would go see it.

-Foxtrot639d ago (Edited 639d ago )

Who says it has to be a big release in the cinema, could be a DVD/Blu-ray.

Added footage, more special features etc and then people will start calling it Alien: Prometheus and later on FOX will just start using that name.

I like the fact out of the entire comment I made though THAT'S what you picked out of it. Not the other bits which relate more about the article

RetrospectRealm638d ago

Why do you care about the name of Prometheus so much? It's not even that good of a film.

And why do I have to respond to your whole comment? What I replied to is all that stood out to me.

"I like the fact out of the entire comment I made though THAT'S what you picked out of it. Not the other bits which relate more about the article"

i think most people are just tired of your endless negativity and complaining to be honest. i don't think any of this really matters because you will just find something else to nitpick about the new movie coming too.

what they could do is release a box set of all the alien movies and maybe name the first one alien prometheus but at the end of the day none of it matters one way or the other.

I've been coming to this sight for about 8 years now. This might be my 4th or 5th time sayin anything. I enjoy n4g & a few of these sister sites. But I've been thinkin the same thing about this Foxtrot "person". I come here to see the entertainment news & read other people's opinions & I really enjoy it but this person, thing, troll is really disgusting & is an embarrassment to the human race. It's hard for me to believe someone has nothing better to do in their lives but cry about all things geek. If he enjoys things so little why is he even here? On top of that most things he's taking shots at are meant for friggin children and should be looked at through a child/adolescent's eyes. Of all things I participate in Internetwise this "person" is a chump, joke & I'd love to see him taken offline. I love how it tries to show intelligence & constantly fails miserably. I'm sure it's life is one big failure. Where is your novel, movie, song, comicbook, tv show, video game or any other piece of geek related art Foxtrot? Big know it all that knows absolutely nothing about anything, you should do your own self a favor & stfu

So let's get this straight you've come to the site so often and yet you've only joined not even a month a go...lol you don't even know me

Let me guess...duo account, hiding behind it so you don't loose bubbles on the other one

Oh and he says it twice aswell because one is obviously not enough. I mean throwing the troll term around and yet agree with Saltybread above who is actually one of the biggest trolls on n4g....yeah that doesn't look funny at all /s

You are basically everything you are trying to call me, the hypocrisy in your comment is hilarious. Nothing I've said above is trolling so do your homework, look the definition up before you make yourself look silly again

loQon638d ago

Dude I never comment, I'm rarely ever even signed in, I have no idea about any of my "stats"(& could really care less), I have no idea who the other guy here is, I have no other account, I visit this site at least once a day(I read articles & comments & don't really know anyone by name cause I don't give af, but your bs stands out cause you're always b!tchin like a baby) & have been for around the past 8 years, I responded twice because I wanted to respond to the other guy & then I also wanted to make sure you saw it. You are friggin pathetic. You whine, cry, & complain about just about everything, it's painful, your online presence here is friggin painful. If you're not a troll then what is wrong with you? Why do you bother so much with things that you don't like? What are you a wanna be critic because you can't contribute anything? I could really care less what you reply to me because every thing I'm saying is true, you are chump loser & I just felt compelled to let you know about yourself. & furthermore just so you know I love alllll this stuff, comics, movies, videogame, etc. I'm a fan you wierdo even when I don't like things I let it go, I let it slide, I appreciate the good, I appreciate the simple fact that it's being made for my enjoyment & most of all I appreciate the fact that it's all pretty much made for the youth on this planet & I'm grateful that I still have a appreciation for it all. Unlike you loser

DUDE! How dare you use the internet to complain about someone using the internet to complain...

You should be thanking Foxtrot. The reason the things you enjoy are made to such a high quality now is because people like Foxtrot have an imagination and can see how to make things better. And creative people who want to make the best product have no hang ups about listening to user feedback.

And how do you know Foxtrot isn't a 9 year old?

On a more serious note, what's up with people complaining about complaining on the internet all of sudden? Isn't that what the internet is for? You do know you can simply ignore people right? Or block them if people like Foxtrot keep you up all night with their posts. And before you say anything, I have no problem reading people bitch and moan so I have no inclination to block anyone.

I could totally see Fox re-releasing Prometheus as 'Alien: Prometheus' on disc.

After all the BS from Ridley that Prometheus wasn't a prequel to Alien, he latches on to the excitement Neill Blomkamp generated for (what would have been) Alien 5, and now Fox / Ridley are riding Prometheus 2 like a parasite infected cash-cow all the way from Fury 161 to LV-426!

As a very long-time fan of the Alien films, Prometheus was such a dud. And as -Foxtrot says, this new synopsis sounds like Prometheus rehashed on yet another world with yet another crew.

Tbh, I wouldn't care if Shaw was killed off. The entire cast (except for Fassbender) were terrible in Prometheus. Utterly forgettable and driven by a mishmash of motivations.

I just hope Ridley has ditched Lindelof and Spaihts as writers - that was the majority of the problem with the film. Lindelof may have duped people with his 'OOhh, lets be mysterious but not actually know what we're going on about' on Lost, but Alien deserves better.

Sniff, sniff..yeah smells of corporate all over it.
I can see it now:
"Ridley, you know. We don't want to be disrespectful or anything but Prometheus was to heady. Folks didn't get it. Know what I mean? Audiences wanna see the thing, what do you call it again? Yea right the one with the teeth that chase after you. That thing. Can you maybe do the same thing we've been doing for the last quarter century? Look our marketing guys even have a snazzy new title that works great with the focus groups...."
