The Alien is in Prometheus


If you’ve been following Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel Prometheus, you’ve probably been wondering if the Alien itself shows up in the movie. While there have been rumors of large “aliens”, but not necessarily THE alien, and talk of the alien “DNA” being a part of the movie; there hasn’t been any concrete word on how everyone’s favorite xenomorph will fit in to the new movie. Until today, that is. Bleeding Cool has an article up with some cool information about the prequel:

Quite simply: it has the Alien aliens in it. The catch, though, is that you might not recognise them – at least, not at first.

Remember how the alien took on canine qualities after gestating in a dog? You may even suppose that the first film’s alien was so recognisably humanoid because it had grown in a human. The same applies here: generation by generation, the creature mutates. As Prometheus begins, the xenomorph is not too recognisable. Sure, it has that alien DNA that Scott and Fassbender teasingly referred to, but it’s missing… well, it’s missing human DNA. Or dog DNA.

All you have to do is imagine how it might look if it were to mix DNA with another alien species… and I think we’re starting to work it all out.

The article also discusses a bit about the plot of the movie, and mentions the Space Jockey. You can read the full thing here.
