P R O M E T H E U S was on UK TV again last night and I had to watch once more. For me its one of the most exciting films ever made and - one of the most important.
Like Tron Legacy, the new Godzilla and the upcoming Star Wars flick, there are sequels and there are the true sequels [OK, Godzilla is a remake BUT it is THE remake]. Prometheus is such a sequel.
Whatever comes after these films will be dangerously cold seconds and Directors attempt resequels at their peril. So I was amazed to find out from Bill that Ridley Scott is making Prometheus 2 [ P2 is not to be confused with Neill Blomkamp's ALIEN 5].
Now because I love Ridley's xenomorphestra I was interested to see what P2 might look like so I shaked and baked a little online.
The new film will be called ALIEN: PARADISE LOST, continuing the classic literary theme but also linking it back to the original trilogy. Alas, I can't help thinking its a little clumsy.
I personally think U N B O U N D would have been a better title, carrying on from Promethius. Or maybe just P A R A D I S E harking back to the one-word titles of A L I E N and Prometheus itself. But what do I know? If I knew anything I'd be making a sequel to a groundbreaking blockbuster prequel myself! ha ha.
Anyhoo, should you wish to open the dark vase of God Knows What and peer into the reactive mists of Ridley's new acidic vision then go to the website here, where you will hear a rousing score befitting such a cosmic epic.
However, for my money, Ridley could do no better than reusing the grand score and visuals from Gerry Anderson's concept footage for E T E R N I T Y, which now I look at it, would have made a great name for Prometheus 2!

I wonder of we could get Ridley to make PROJECT S. W. O. R. D: The Movie? ha ha.
Any thoughts on P2 or ALIEN or anything xenomorphic readers?
