Ridley Scott Reveals 'Prometheus 2' Title, And Talks 'Alien' Franchise Connections!!

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

With Ridley Scott's highly anticipated and critically praised film The Martian making the publicity rounds right now, we are starting to hear a lot of badass things about his Prometheus and Alien franchises,

Just the other day Scott stated the fact that he did not want the next Alien film to come out before the next Prometheus film, so that he would have time to get a little further in the Prometheus story-line which is a prequel to the Alien franchise.  So not to confuse audiences to much who don't really understand that the Prometheus franchise and Alien franchise is connected.  

Scott went on to say that he doesn't believe there will be any direct ties in Prometheus 2 to the Alien franchise, and that the story wouldn't start to connect back to the first Alien film until the third or fourth Prometheus film.

Yes, but it won’t be in the next one. It will be in the one after this one or maybe even a fourth film before we get back into the ‘Alien’ franchise… The whole point of it is to explain the Alien franchise and to explain the how and why of the creation of the Alien itself. I always thought of the Alien as kind of a piece of bacterial warfare. I always thought that that original ship, which I call the Croissant, was a battleship, holding these biomechanoid creatures that were all about destruction.
— Ridley Scott

Strangely enough, after all that talk about not confusing audiences and keeping the two franchises separated.  He comes out and tells everyone the title to Prometheus 2 is...

Get ready for it...


Now don't feel crazy, because you're not the only person confused by this, and the title is almost so on the nose its just ridiculous.  I almost want to think that Ridley Scott is just screwing with everyone and he just made this title up off the top of his head during an interview.

So does anyone like this title?  Do you believe him?  Leave us your thoughts in the comments below.

ALIEN: PARADISE LOST aka PROMETHEUS 2  is set to hit theaters on May 30th, 2017
