      Million dollar questions, both of 'em.

      Seems to me the space jockey is something that helped create life on earth and thus has some human DNA or traits that tie it in with us.

      I kinda had the same thought.
      It's gonna be interesting to see why some of the space jockeys they found were dead.

      He's from Sesame Street, but that's not cookie. He's one of the little aliens that say "Yip... yip yip yip yip yip yip..."

      Flash knows what's up... he's a daddy, and as such, he's spent some time on the (Sesame) streets.

      They screened 10-15 minutes of footage for about 400 media types in London this morning.

      She also reveals the existence of a scene that gave her nightmares. A scene Ridley Scott admits is this film's equivalent to the infamous chest burster sequence.

      Before we know it, the morning is over and the movie stars are ferried off to the Soho Hotel to be quizzed by the media.

      Ridley goes with them. His work here is done; he's left an audience crying out for more, an audience that'll go straight to their websites, newspapers and Twitter feeds to tell the world exactly how excited they should be.

      And rightly so. Ridley Scott's protestations that this movie is only part-Alien prequel don't ring true when you see the standard conventions - cryogenics, red collar crews in space, the space jockey, a field of 'eggs' et al - but there's something else going on here. Something we've yet to see or hear about. And you should all be very, very excited.

      Prometheus. OH MY GOD. *Nerdgasm*

      We were shown about 15 minutes. No spoilers, mostly introductions and world-building. The sense of wonder at the set-up is irresistible.

      Every single shot is impeccably crafted; every frame bleeds a mysterious, cold, beauty; the soundtrack soon to be iconic.

      This one is going to be special.

      And the Q&A was fantastic. Sir Ridley Scott is hilariously blunt and Noomi Rapace is the cutest thing on Earth.
      From http://www.androidtabletblog.com/pro...us-3d-footage/ --

      This could not only be the best film Ridley Scott has made in years, it could be the best science fiction film made in years.

      None of my in-laws have seen them, I think some people avoid them due to the "horror" genre.
