Seriously, I'm convinced no Xenomorph will appear. They seem to exploring a whole different "species" in this universe, that species of course being the Space Jockeys and also the possibility of some sort of biological weapon. This film will not end with the Nostromo coming towards camera and John Hurt waking up from cryostasis. Not only that, the derelict ship in the trailer isn't even the one from Alien, nor is the planet they're on LV-426.
Yes, it's a prequel in terms of where it sits in the Alien timeline. But this isn't The Thing (2011) ...
Yes it is the same derelict ship.
If what I've read right, the ship is capable of massive terraforming.
I think they damaged the ship so it couldn't get to earth, and instead it fucked up THAT planet.
No it won't end with any footage, reshot or original of Alien, but it will set the stage for it.
Maybe ending with a close up of a facehugger in an egg?
All you have to do is listen to anything Damon Lindlelof or Ridley Scott has said to realize that it's not a The Thing type prequel. From what I've gathered, it's within the same universe but exploring a new, yet related, mythos. Scott said him and Lindlelof sat down for months to come up with an "original" story to tell in this universe.
Yes, it's a prequel on the Alien timeline and it explains who the Space Jockeys are but I'm convinced it's not the same ship or LV-426.
They say fossilization takes a minimum of 10,000 years, y'know ...
In this galaxy.
