We've had confirmation from Ridley Scott himself that whatever connection Prometheus will have to Alien is loose at best, but we've never known just how loose. Now Scott is helping us along by confirming that the original creatures, better known as "xenomorphs," will have no part in his return to science fiction.

We can't wait for Ridley Scott's Prometheus to finally hit the screens next summer—and if the recently released pictures haven't whet your appetites yet, this WILL. It's the ''possible'' plot synopsis of the movie, and IF it's real, it's full of awesome, major spoilery goodness.
A while back we finally got confirmation that Ridley Scott's Prometheus does tie in to his Alien franchise after all, but what we didn't hear was how. Now Scott is speaking up, and though the details are vague, he says that the connection lies in the film's final eight minutes.
Why should you sit and watch 50 horror movies—approximately 75 hours of viewing time&$8212;when you can watch them all in 4 minutes? Now, with this short film from the Fine Brothers, comedians and filmmakers who have been spoiling movies wholesale for two years, you can save yourself 74 hours and 56 minutes.
Just how tied Ridley Scott's Prometheus is to his classic Alien and the flicks that followed it has been something of an open question for a while now. All we really know is we can't wait to see it. But now one of the film's stars—Rafe Spall—says he's definitely been working on an "Alien set."
According to Wikipedia—and Gibson himself on Twitter—the ONLY thing that survived from his original Alien 3 script and made it into the movie was this barcode tattoo.
Director Ridley Scott and 20th Century Fox had been coy about the relationship between the upcoming movie Prometheus and the Alien saga. Star Michael Fassbender and writer Damon Lindelof ultimately confirmed it. But now we have more from a reliable yet unexpected source: Sigourney Weaver.
A couple of guys caught up with Brent Spiner at a recent con to get his autograph on a piece of original art that depicted Data wrestling with one of the aliens from Alien, and in the process got punked by a master. (At least we hope they got punked. Because if they didn't, we're suddenly very worried about Spiner.)
When we think about the Alien movie franchise, we think about Ellen Ripley, the super bad-ass Alien-butt kicking heroine we all grew to know and love. And we don't know about you, but we always sort of felt that Ripley's story was left a bit unfinished ... and so (still) does Sigourney Weaver.
