    Now they're making teasers for trailers?

    Christ, that teaser was enough to get me hyped.
    I think I'll pass on seeing the actual trailer.

    Hope it's awesome but I won't be watching it. Seeing the first trailer twice was enough to convince me to see it, no sense spoiling anything else.

    Edited:

    Anyone know when the new trailer is officially released?
    The trailer premiers at Wondercon or whatever at 7 pm EST. Expect the trailer to go online then, or shortly after.

    Oh you have no idea about some people who like to make a big deal about the black guy dying first
    As far as I remember, Idris Elba was very sensitive about racism in movies, so probably he won't die first.

    It's moving about above Shaw, as she's in the machine it looks like it's being held above her face.

    That doesn't look much like a facehugger or chestburster to me.

    It looks like some type of squid creature as I look at it closer.

    From the trailer, it seems like the tablets that they discover and believe to be an "invitation" turns out to really be a warning, which they realize when shit goes to hell. I feel like the underlying premise is eerily similar to the original Alien.

    It's moving about above Shaw, as she's in the machine it looks like it's being held above her face.

    Obviously the main antagonists of this movie are going to be squids.

    I think there are going to be two alien races, one of the infected, and then the actual Jockey. In the trailer we saw people allegedly turning into those grey humanoids, the trailer also showed an apparent Jockey rising into a seat for a few frames.

    No doubt some sort of hint or easter egg about the Xenomorphs

    Alien related

    During my incarceration last week, I stumbled across this while browsing a thread for sleeping thread in /mu/

    Nostromo is a dark ambient album by a fellow who calls himself SleepResearch_Facility. Immediately, the first post of the thread was about his debut album Nostromo.

    I know what you're thinking, and you're right. This album was designed to mimic the sounds of the ship, the Nostromo in the iconic movie Alien. It's also developed with sleep in mind, and the article says that it's been used on insomnia patients the like. To me this is awesome as shit, as I love stuff like that. Here's the wikipedia article.

    Album Art


    Tracks
    1 a-deck 14:01 14:00
    2 b-deck 11:52 12:03 The first column is the original release, and the second is the re-release
    3 c-deck 11:57 11:46
    4 d-deck 12:37 12:37
    5 e-deck 11:21 11:04
    (Re-Release only) Narcissus — 7:52


    So yeah, I figured you guys might think this is cool. I have a mediafire link if anybody wants it.

    Edited:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nostromo_(album)

    A Deck

    C Deck

    http://facepunch.com/threads/1095176?highlight=

    Edited:

    Nostromo is mainly inspired by the fictional spaceship of the same name in the 1979 science fiction/horror film Alien. Kevin Doherty, the single member of SleepResearch Facility, has described this film as "a masterpiece of dark atmospheres and brooding suspense", adding that it is "my all time favorite film".[2] At the beginning of the film, the ship is travelling through deep space, and its seven human crew members are unconscious in hypersleep. The ship is dark and quiet, but not silent – all manner of mechanical and electronic systems are slowly ticking over, producing a ceaseless flow of low background noise.

    The album Nostromo explores this shadowy, haunting atmosphere, taking the listener on a deep aural journey through the ship's decks. In the film, the Nostromo has three decks (A, B and C),[3] but the album adds two more fictitious decks, D and E, with one CD track per deck. Each track flows smoothly into the next, with no gaps of silence in-between, and as with all of SleepResearch_Facility's music, Nostromo is very sleep-conducive if played at low volume. The bonus track Narcissus on the 2007 reissue is named after the fictional spaceship in Alien; the Narcissus is the lifeboat of the Nostromo.

    The album's main aural components are: loops of deep pulsating bass (especially in "a-deck" and "d-deck"), washes of smooth industrial noise, mysterious droning synthesiser chords (particularly in "b-deck" and "c-deck"), electrostatic crackling, and other deep mechanical sounds. Kevin Doherty has said that the creation of Nostromo involved "synthesisers and such to generate things, lots of studio equipment like effects machines, radios, waves of feedback from analogue equipment looping back on itself and a big mixing desk to bind it all together on."[4]

    I hope the first scene is another slow pan around the Prometheus followed by the waking of the crew...    (followed by flashbacks of the Earth stuff, perhaps..)   

    Do it Scott!

    Actually, you're right. Maybe it's a close relative of the facehugger.

    I thought so too. I'm sure there's a lot more to the movie but we already know the basic plot.

    The same thing happened with Chronicle but that was still a very good movie.

    Also is this going to be shown in IMAX?

    I believe that it's going to be PG-13, sadly. But, even so, Scott's probably going to release some epic hard core R rated director's cut.
