Leaked Images of the Jockey Head
Site Info: Our v2 news site is no longer in service. Old articles have been merged here. Henceforth minor and major Prometheus news will be consolidated on this site only. Now back to our regular news:
Earlier today Cinemart posted images of what they claimed to be a prop in Prometheus. Comparing the prop images to the reference pic below, we can safely say this is the same design as the head that appeared in the trailer but without the paint details. Many have speculated that this head (or helmet to others) is that of the Space Jockey.
In related news: Ridley Scott had this to say while talking with MTV:
“I have to redesign the elements that led to the thing you finally see in Alien, which is the face hugger…I don’t want to repeat it. The alien in a sense as a shape is worn out..maybe we’ll come up with something different. What we’re trying to do is squeeze in two prequels…if you explain who he was and where he came from then you want to find out where they came from and you might was to go to this place where his people come from. “ Source
