    I'm going to see it Friday.

    My question is: Do I watch Alien first or Prometheus? I have seen Alien before, but it has been years and I remember almost nothing from it.

    As far as the Alien connection to this movie goes, Prometheus apparently precedes it.
    I think you could do Prometheus first then watch Alien after..

    Ridley Scott said Prometeus answers a question that was left unanswered in Alien. I think it'd be good to rewatch it.

    Which clearly has to do with Space Jockey.

    I didn't realize til now that Prometheus has anything to do with Alien.

    Gotta say that kills my anticipation a bit.

    Christ, if you had to have a Sci Fi connection - the initial Alien would certainly be the one. From what I have read it merely takes place in the same world as Alien..

    no idea it was connected to alien, that helps alot. i want to see this movie, but i stayed away from most of the previews amd trailers to keep the suspense.

    Here is your Prometheus/Alien connection..

    And I have personally pondered the story of Space Jockey since seeing Alien the day it came out. I'm sure it was merely sidenote of HR Geiger's concept art at the time - with no answers ever intended.
    30+ years later we get to find out..
