There is a lot of discussion and debate as to whether this is an Alien prequel. Ridley Scott and various cast members are having a seemingly great time fanning these flames and some blogs, sites and discussion forums have put a lot…a LOT….of effort into this.
My research is by no means exhaustive because I believe that you can have too much information and share in too much discussion which can dull your movie-watching experience. But that doesn’t mean I am not looking forward to this movie. Because I am. A lot…
From IMDB :
