What was the point of the beginning of Prometheus?

Our Theory: What we are seeing in the beginning is the creation of Earth. The giant ship (which is different from the ring-shaped one we see later in the film, weirdly) has landed on Earth to drop off the Engineer so that he can terraform the planet and make it sustainable for life.

What are the aliens called in Prometheus?

So here’s a refresher: Most of the movie dealt with the crew of the space ship Prometheus trying to communicate with an alien group we call the Engineers. We are led to believe that these engineers brought life to Earth, and as the movie unfolds, we learn they have created biological weapons to take that life away.

What happened to the alien at the beginning of Prometheus?

The Engineer was on a lifeless planet (one of many). He knowingly drank the black fluid, accepting with peace that this would end his life. His body was torn apart, seeding the planet with fragments of his DNA, which eventually formed the life on whatever planet he was on.

Who created the Engineers?

The Engineers are just an advanced form of AI…an advanced version of David. These engineers (aka the sons of God) didnt create mankind…they wanted to be equal to mankind (using the goo/religion in an attempt to do so) Same story as the Book of Enoch and the poem Paradise Lost. Scott spent two movies setting this up.

Is there a way to explain Prometheus?

We’re not truly “explaining” Prometheus, of course– only Lindelof and Ridley Scott can do that, and they probably never will. We’re just giving it our best shot, digging through what the movie tells us and seeing if we cant inure out what it means.

When did Prometheus come out?

Prometheus (2012 film) In 2002, the development of Alien vs. Predator took precedence, and the project remained dormant until 2009 when Scott again showed interest. Spaihts wrote a script for a prequel to the events of the Alien films, but Scott opted for a different direction to avoid repeating cues from those films.
