    Ok so I maybe Im only one who feels disappointed. After Prometheus, a movie a really liked, there was so many questions to be answered. I really would like to know more about the Space Jockeys.

    I mean I like Alien. But the whole go to a new planet and find an unknown lifeform that infects/kills everyone. Just seems like the same Hollywood scary alien story (no pun indented). Playing it safe to sell more franchise movies instead of trying new things.
    .
    I just wish they did a more nuanced approach maybe focusing on the Space Jockeys.:lupe1:

    I think that all those elements will be in there but they wanted to keep some things hidden so they can be surprising when you see the film (Notice there isn't much of Michael Fassbender in the trailer even tho we know he's def a star of the film). Also, there's a quick shot in this trailer that looks to be inside a Space Jockey lab where an Engineer is being dissected. Def implies that we'll see more of their backstory in this movie.

    A complaint that many ppl have is that trailers reveal too much of the story....and now I see even when they hold back they STILL get criticized, lol.

    I think its really my own bias because I really dont agree with them doing an "Alien" movie at all. I personally would of liked them to start a separate movie franchise focusing solely on the the Space Jockeys.

    I just feel the whole scary Xenomorph things is a little overused. With all the writing talent Hollywood has sometimes you would think they could at least try to come up with something a little more innovative. I mean Alien the 1st was considered a major innovation when it came out?

    But Alien was based on another film (It! The Terror From Beyond Space), not really innovative in that arena. I feel you though. To each his own. I love the franchise, even if they are still playing with the same deck of cards.

    You know...I was PSYCH'D as HELL with "Covenant". My "Knee Jerk" reaction with this trailer was fallin' out excitement, but after watchin' it 3 times in a row I was like, damn dude...is this just gonna be "Alien" 2017 with some "Aliens" embellishment? Did they just drop the whole end of "Prometheus"? Eh....I'm not as excited anymore.

    I honestly think that they didn't even need to do a full length trailer. They could've just done 2 "teaser" trailers. With the residual hype from "Prometheus" they could've easily gotten away with it. I think this trailer may kinda work against them cause now a lot of muhf@#kaz is probably thinking "...ughhh, another "Alien/ Aliens" action/shoot em up flick". Most of us were really enthralled with the origins story. I know I been waitin' on one for yeeeeeeeeeears, ever since I saw "Aliens" in the theater as a kid.

    Hollywood (unfortunately) is like any other corporation. They got their Shareholders that decide what the public wants to see. I'm 10000% in agreeance that a Space Jockey storyline would be the SH!T but....unfortunately the Millennial crowd overall doesn't know what the hell a Space Jockey is, and {I think} they comprise a really big piece of Hollywood's profit so...instead we {potentially, they may actually surprise us) just end up with the same sh!t in a different toilet. LOL

    It was super innovative when it was released because not many people knew what it was based off of (at that time).

    Amen! If you were a kid when it came out (moi) you never saw anything like the creatures busting out of stomachs or the face attaching larvae in Mainstream blockbusters. Now those kind of gore effects are standard fare for TV family hour on "CSI" or "Bones".

    Plus it was the first major film to deftly blend two genres well, horror and space flick, like Star Wars blended Westerns and space flicks. Finally, it was one of the first major flicks to have a female protagonist that wasn't waiting to be rescued or a space sex kitten like Jane Fonda in Barbarella.

    All valid points, but I guess I'm the only one excited to see Ridley Scott, the maker of the original "innovative" Alien film, officially return to the horror franchise he created for the first time since 1979. If anyone is best suited to tell a visionary new "alien on the loose" story its him.

    No worries, you guys can pass on it...I'll be there on opening day with my facehugger mask on, lol
