'Prometheus' - 'Alien' Connection Explained

Prometheus Alien Movie Connection Explained

Ridley Scott's "return to the Alien universe" in Prometheus has been the subject of unimaginable speculation ever since the film was revealed to tell a related story - as opposed to serving as an outright prequel. For months cinephiles have poured over Prometheus trailers and set images hoping for a clear picture of where, exactly, the highly-anticipated film would fit into the iconic story of the xenomorphs. Fortunately, the Prometheus marketing has been (for the most part) pretty subtle - flashing a variety of mysterious and tense shots entirely out of context - leaving speculators with little information to analyze.

Now that Prometheus (read our review) has officially been released, information about the secretive production has come flooding in - and we have a much clearer picture of how Prometheus is connected to Alien (and the larger Alien universe). To help steer discussion we’ve put together a lengthy analysis of Prometheus and explained a few of the plot points that might have been confusing to some moviegoers. Does our Prometheus explanation match your theory?
