I've been dissecting the trailer. It looks like it'll deal with the Space Jockeys a lot. You can see the head/helmet be analyzed in 00:34, AND in 00:44, the Chair from the first Alien movie is activated. But if you look closely, there is some massive figure standing next to it  :metal
I've only watched it once, being that I'm at work the screen was pretty condensed as well, but it looked like at one point they were standing in a room filled with large Urn looking deals, that give the impression of the fields of Alien impregnator pods...but were clearly stone or metal...not biological.

Finally saw the end. Bonerz. Space jockey indeed... I cannot wait; this is going to be epic. I hate using that word nowadays since every swingin' dick feels the need to call every single little thing that excites them 'epic'. But this is the definition of the word, in both scale of grandeur and story.

Well said. When I think of epics, I think of Lawrence of Arabia, The Lord of the Rings, Spartacus, and Ghandi. They are more ambitious in scope. Prometheus looks like an epic. And a scary one. Im pumped.

I do hope that if this movie turns out to be as great as it looks, Mr. Scott will continue along this path. It's just where he belongs.

Just saw this trailer. My inner fanboy squealed with delight when I saw the title fill in one line at a time like the title on Alien did.

This looks awesome. Yeah I'm going to this.

If Bob isn't going to be in this movie then I don't really care about it.  Why would they get rid of Bob?

That doesn't make much sense to me since the Prometheus trailer is a take on the original Alien trailer :P

Looks Incredible! I'm tempted to begin speculating about some of the snippets...i.e the 'transformations' that appear to be taking place but there really isn't enough there to build a good speculation on. Just enough to reinforce that this movie looks awesome.

Thanks for the bump and update Sigz!

I really hope we see a glimpse of a xenomorph, a facehugger's legs or just a scene where they stumble upon the hundreds of eggs. I mean, come on, it's the same ship.

Oh my alien lord, I didn't just get goose bumps...I turned into a goose. I am now a big fat lump of goose. That was the best thing I've seen in a long time. Much better than the previous trailer. WOW I WANT THIS NOW! It looks so sexily terrifying.

It's interesting the way this has been promoted.  Well, what info has been leaked anyway.  Ridley seems to be stopping short of calling this a prequel, but has allowed that it takes place in the same universe.  We do see the "space jockey" in his helm chair, so yeah, this is definitely the same ship.  But supposedly there's a least one or two surprises left, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Ridley seems set on the fact that the xenomorph will not appear in any possible way in the film.

My guess?

The explorers in Prometheus directly lead to/cause the creation of the xenomorphs we know and love from the Aliens films.  How?  Why?  Where?  Dunno, it's a gut thing. :)

Didn't see Alien and Aliens until a couple weeks ago. Should be a great and highly anticipated release.

Prometheus trailer looks awesome. While I am admittedly disappointed that there won't be any "actual" Aliens in it, it does seem like it will be a good stand-alone sci-fi epic with the appeal of being an unofficial prequel.

Not only that, but I read in an article ( I believe Yahoo took me there somehow) that Scott stated this movie kind of lends itself to the possibility of a sequal.....he said things are left in a way that it wouldn't be stretching it to do so. Hmmmmmmm?
