Because Damon Lindelof thought it would make the film more mysterious to have the scene, but cut the explanation part from it.

it's never explained. So guess at it wildly. Based on the movie they were going to destroy earth and start again, but failed to do so because of an outbreak in their lab. When David talks to the awakened Promethean he greets it, then asks him the questions. The Promethean asks "why", his job was to exterminate humans and the earth, so he ends up killing everyone and tries to complete his mission.

It's kinda ironic. Promethues was named after a god who helped bring fire and knowledge to the humans at the expense of his own safety and here we have this slut going all genocide
>>
>>64483059
He was a big guy. They were smaller guys.

Because they'd only created man as prey for their true perfect creation, the Aliens.

Any other movies with ancient alien ruins exploration like this but good?

I've seen Alien, it takes place on a ship and that's it. No ruins. Do the other Alien movies have ruins?
>>

>No ruins.
The very beginning. When they land on the planet. They're crawling around the space jockey's ship.

Other than that, not a lot of options. The Mars movie with Gary Sinise and Tim Robbins maybe?

Some shitty 70's and 80's b-movies that I can't think of.

I thought it was said or implied in the movie that they planned on coming back to Earth around 2000 years ago, which coincided with Jesus at the time.

We don't know yet, gotta wait for the next movie to find out, or perhaps he won't bother telling us.

However it's worth noting that the Engineers at the start are some what different to the ones later on in the movie.

I think they created humans and these new Engineers are like Space Nazis and they see Humans as a mistake and want to destroy us.

He saw David as an abomination, like a Nazi cradling a Jew child before he bashes its head in. How could something so disgusting be created? It surely must be eradicated.

I wouldn't be at all surprised with Ridleys lack of originality for the Engineers that he doesn't just turn them in to Space Nazis who created a weapon so powerful they lost control of it.

It was superbly shot and looked fantastic, but that's it really. Script and story were a let down, the unscientific behaviour of the scientists killed the immersion.

Because it needed to dissect them for information before returning to find its underwater city swamped by Shoggoths.
>>
>>64488688
I think there is an interview with Ridley where he pretty much says this.

Pretty weak ass story if that's it. Jesus was a fucking ancient Alien of super smart Engineers who for some reason thought it would be safe to hang around a bunch of savage man-apes in the middle east.

Sounds like he caved in to the kids demanding the Alien back. He must have realised that he's a hack and he only got lucky with Alien and now he's gonna milk that cow some more.
>>
>>64489297
He talked for years about wanting to explore the origin of the aliens, and where they come from. A prequel.

When he gets the chance he half asses it.
>>
He was an edgy FAGGOT
>>
>>64489069
This is really dumb. Jesus was nothing special. There were thousands of "prophets", jesus only got super popular because the Romans tried to suppress his followers. It was blind luck that Christianity even took off.
>>
his job pre-coma was to take a plane and destroy the earth... why do you think he wouldn't kill humans right in front of him ?
>>
>>64489297
Prometheus was AMAZING. I feel bad if it's true he shouldn't be forced by idiots to reintroduce aliens if it isn't required by the storyline.
Glad Prometheus2 is already in the making anyway. Fuck yall

Perhaps he wanted to know why you would create humanity before throwing them out of the plane.

You ready for this shit? Im gunna drop a bomb on this thread so hard yall niggas gonna bust a nut.

There are two types of engineers. "Good" and "Bad" ones. The bad ones want to destroy humans for whatever reason Ridley wants to give them in the sequels. The good ones create life, but its unknown if they meant to make humans or if we are the intended succsesor of them. How do I know that theres two factions of these buttholes? Way before Aliens Colonial Marines came out (oh yes son thats right) there was an artical talking about how Ridley Scott came to visit them and got inspiration from their work and put it into prometheus. This was most likely bullshit to drum up hype for the game, as there is nothing in Colonial Marines that even references his film, except for one minor, tiny thing.

When you shot the head of the Space Jockey, it creates a hologram of the Egg Engineer ship from the opening of the film, and the Derelict ship. Or, the good Engineers vs the Bad ones.

Again, this is all bullshit speculation but all these films are are plots written out without any conceived sequel then later on making a sequel to it. Aka, shit tier writing.
>>
>>64485271
they created the humans. Now they want to genocide them and Shaw wants to know why. That's the fucking story of the film did you even watched it?
>>
>>64486788
Just play the Metroid series.
>>
>>64491164
>Prometheus was AMAZING.
The fuck it was.

Everything up until they left the Prometheus ship when they finally got to the moon was great. Felt like I was watching a new, good sci-fi movie that had a lot of potential. Everything after that was retarded.
>>
>>64488397
ffs science is really a new religion for you ameriniggers

I'm not going to start a new thread for this, what are the best modern sci-fi/alien movies that have come out in the last 10 or so years
>>
>>64492812
I would like to know this as well.

District 9 was a good one.
