A trailer just leaked (horrible quality) and needless to say im stoked, is this part of the Alien Series? if you pay close attention you can see some things that look a bit like the space jockey and over on the b9 boards there are some more in depth pictures and such.
"A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race."

I'm pretty sure I read a while ago that this movie won't have anything to do with the Alien series. Still interested in seeing it though.

I thought it would be a film version of Aeschylus' drama. I don't know anything about Aliens.

They've been talking about how there is definitely and obviously shared DNA, and then Ridley gave this little interview:

So it's definitely connected.

As far as I know it's set in the Alien universe and before the existing films, but it doesn't tie in directly with them.

This film is most definitely an Alien prequel, don't believe otherwise.

how I understood it as well, though I'm assuming there will be some sort of tie-in.

Guys, I'm not being funny but I posted an interview above with Ridley Scott explicitly stating that it's a tie-in!

So much for him keeping his entries into the Alien oeuvre subtle.

If he keeps things thematically interesting I'm not too concerned with this being an out and out sci-fi banger.

I think the screen writer stated that the last 10 minutes will have some connection to Alien.

Well, me either, hah, but when he tries to do too many things, his movies get incredibly convoluted and rather pointless. Kingdom of Heaven, Body of Lies, Robin Hood. I'd just love another sci-fi/horror; something slow and methodical out of him.

That is definitely a concern with him, and I would really hate to see him fuck up his currently perfect (although only 2-film) sci-fi run. As far as I can tell, this seems to be a reasonably simple "mission goes wrong" story with complex thematic value, although I may eat my words on that!
