I might bootleg the sequel out of being curious, unless i see an actual ''Alien'' from the Alien series or one close in design i say why bother.
But that was the point of the movie, lead to its own franchise, have its own sequels, both "Alien" and "Prometheus" are two movies that take place in the same universe, but the later isn't supposed to limit itself because of the former (Let alone the other Alien movies).
It baffles me, really. So many generic complaints everywhere all the time about how everything is about sequels and remakes and prequels nowadays... this movie offers something different, to go its own way... and yet people just can't accept that it is not just an "Alien prequel" or an "Alien movie", or at all... And why? The Aliens are overdone, milked way too much, don't take away the little mystery they still have, instead let's see what new, original things the sequels have to offer, maybe even alternatives
to the Alien like the Deacon at the end of the first one (Without having to lead into the original aliens
, but rather being their own creatures).
