Still puzzling after the unofficial PROMETHEUS week? Well, writer Damon Lindelof thinks the material "kind of speaks for itself."
Speaking to Hero Complex following the whirlwind week of photos, micro-teasers and the eventual trailer, Lindelof discussed the lingering relation to ALIEN. Here's what he had to say: "One part of me sort of wants to be working on something where I can say, ‘This is exactly what this is’ without being secretive or mysterious but I think that with the genesis of this a couple of years ago — when Ridley announced that he wanted to make an ALIEN prequel — that’s where this began and where it’s evolved to is this conversation: Is it or isn’t it [an ALIEN prequel]? And I think this little sort of dance that we’re doing basically existed prior to anybody seeing anything. Now that people are seeing stuff I think the material kind of speaks for itself. If you’re looking at it through the prism of ‘I want it to be that,’ you’ll notice the way the word PROMETHEUS comes up [in a way that resembles the ALIEN classic logo] or look at the production design and the way the whole thing feels. If you’re looking at it from the perspective of wanting it to be something more original, I think the trailer accomplishes that by being pretty cool to people who have never even seen ALIEN."
"It’s accomplishing what we set out to do. I wish that we didn’t have to be so mysterious about it but mystery can be a good thing as long as you’ve got the goods to back it up. In this case, when the movie arrives, one of the most visionary filmmakers in the history of cinema will be putting his cards on the table and I’m just kind of standing behind him with my arms folded."
There doesn't seem to be much to ask when it comes to PROMETHEUS. The trailer felt really special, and no matter what it is or isn't, I'm along for the ride.
