Introducing the RT01 TRANSPORT
For the interstellar explorer who needs to stretch their legs after a long trip in "Prometheus"
Exclusive offer from Weyland Industries and MSN Movies: the RT01 TRANSPORT, the preferred surface transport of the crew of Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" (launching June 8th). Comes with all the bells and whistles you could ask for when you're on the desolate surface of a newly-discovered planet in a distant solar system: Integrated Bio-Nomic Telecom Unit, Reinforced Touchscreen Blast-Shield, Carbon Matter Sensors, you name it. No mission to find the origin of mankind is complete without the smooth Split Axle Suspension of the the RT01, and your crew will feel marginally protected behind the Titanium-Alloy Coated Armor of the vehicle.

Note: Charlize Theron not included.
I think we have to allow the filmmakers some latitude when it comes to something like this. Our technology is advancing fast. In many cases, we have no idea what tech will look like in 20 years... let alone 100+. So, I think, as a movie maker, you do your best (in 1979) to make a futuristic movie with what you have (and within a budget). Ridley Scott probably had no idea when he made Alien that he would be back for more... nor would I suspect he ever considered going backwards in time from the original when he did it. Now, more than 30 years after Alien was made, we have made leaps and bounds in technology and our concept of what future tech might look like. I think it would have been more absurd to use 4 color CRT screens and fat bulky keyed keyboards in a futuristic movie made today when any of us could go right now and buy a more high tech looking keyboard and a flat screen monitor at Walmart for $150 or so. And to do it to merely have some goofy notion of continuity that really isn't all that important to the stories of either movie. I think most of us like the shiny... heh Wow us with the imaginative visuals and gadgets.
To wrap up my point here, we as film goers and sci-fi fans have to allow the suspension of disbelief and go with the flow when it comes to tech in movies. Me personally, I usually just pretend that the tech in the newer (yet retro) movie was used in the original. Sort of hit the reset button on it in my mind. It is probably a safe bet to say if he were making the original Alien today, it would have all of this stuff in it. Just use your imagination and make it happen. :)
looks very good,you cannot compare this movie with aliens.
however aliens is still very good.
I,m really looking forward to see this movie
