The Alien franchise is a beloved horror and sci-fi staple, so naturally Hollywood tries to breathe new life into it every few years. In 2012, Ridley Scott made his return to the universe of Alien with Prometheus-- a not-quite prequel that follows a space crew as they deal with some scary alien threats called Engineers.
Prometheus does raise some questions though. Like why haven’t the crew been briefed on their mission until AFTER they’ve been in cryo-sleep for several years? Why does everybody take off their helmets in an alien cave? How did they get lost in the cave with amazing mapping technology? Why did they suddenly want to touch that horrifying alien snake thing? Why did David spike Charlie’s drink? What was the point of Weyland plot twist? Why was that Engineer chasing Elizabeth at the end?
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to Prometheus! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

  • Daft Punk just broke up and saying goodbye is difficult- please do a Pitch Meeting for one of their bizarrely esoteric full length music videos like “Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem,” “Electroma,” or “Tron: Legacy”

  • There was actually a scene of a young Guy Pearce on a 2020-something TED talk show, which was the only good thing in the movie so of course it’s only natural to delete it.

  • 3rd cousin? That explains why all the scripts got accepted 🤣

  • The braindead plots of Prometheus and Alien: Covenant prove that Ridley Scott is overrated, while Tony Scott's films are underrated. Next time you want to make another Alien sequel, rehire James Cameron!

  • Ehhh... the reason the Engineer wants to destroy life on Earth and chases Elizabeth is pretty clear. No points for making it sound like stuff that gets explained doesn’t get explained.

  • You two are very funny men

  • Wait, I thought that there was a bit of a romantic thing being hinted at between Scriptwriter Guy and Movie Producer Guy. Like, it's no Luke/Leia in terms of, "um, wtf?" but this twist reveal is still kinda squick.

  • 3rd cousins? Mind. Blown.

  • I remember when I saw this movie back in the day it was on theatre and the session me and my friend bought the ticket for 11 pm was empty (I wondered why back then) So before going to the movies we ate some burguer kings, man that heavy belly and 30 minutes of this crap movie was enough for a knockout and we both slept! LOL and we just woke up after credits. we looked at each other and said: did you understand it? LOL until today this is a inner joke between us

  • K this movie definitely has PROBLEMS, but I've always been fond of it despite how messy it feels. On the same playing field as Alien? Pff nooo, but you could say the same of almost every Alien sequel/prequel. I will say that a lot of the "holes" people complain about in this movie are very easily explained if you pay attention, but yes it's poorly edited and could have used at least a few scene rewrites. But I think we'd all be much kinder to Prometheus as a flawed but ambitious movie if the misleading marketing and subsequent negative response against it didn't cause Fox to pressure R Scott to suddenly ditch everything they were building up to in favor of a comparatively unoriginal Alien Covenant movie. Covenant did to Prometheus what the Last Jedi did to Force Awakens, made it an impossible mess of a franchise.

  • Actually the third cousin thing is a twist that makes senses it explains why most of these movies were created ( off the record. yes I know it’s the same guy blah blah blah)
