Prometheus: New Video Gives Us Our ‘ALIEN’ Link

Ridley Scott is getting ready to release one of the most anticipated movies of the year, and the main reason for the anticipation is the films ‘Prequel’ status relative to one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies ever made – Alien.

Well now Scott is saying that the connections to the beloved franchise with the acid-blooded antagonists is going to be more obscure than originally planned, and I don’t believe him. That’s not to say I’m expecting Michael Fassbender‘s chest to explode 20 minutes into the movie, but I do think we’re gonna see more than he claims.

What he is claiming is that Guy Pierce‘s character – ‘Peter Weyland’  – is gonna be our only real tie to the historic series of movies. Fans of the movies will remember that ‘Ellen Ripley’ and ‘Captain Dallas’ worked for ‘Weyland-Yutani‘. Peter Weyland is presumably the son or grandson of Lance Henriksen‘s AVP character ‘Charles Bishop Weyland’. Weyland’s company eventually merged with The Yutani Comapny, who were featured in possession of a ‘Predator Arm Cannon’ at the end of AVP: Requiem.

Anyhow, here’s the video…

Now this, combined with the ship on LV-426 that we remember from the first 2 movies, which has already been featured in the Prometheus trailer, lead me to believe that this story is gonna be more ingrained that he wants to let on.

Guess we wont know for sure though until June 8th…
