    Some of these are pretty cool

    Weyland Timeline posted:
    Weyland manufactures the first advanced android prototype model of its kind. He is affectionately called David, a name Sir Peter Weyland had initially reserved for his own human son.
    JANUARY 7, 2025

    Weyland makes significant adjustments to the David android prototype, facilitating David’s first interaction with humans. This initial meeting is very promising.
    JANUARY 1, 2028

    After years of litigation, Weyland wins the David patent lawsuit against the Japanese start-up Yutani Corporation, effectively protecting the investments of both Weyland Industries and its shareholders.
    DECEMBER 12, 2029

    After android regulations are lifted, the third generation David is deployed internally in order to test human acceptance of cybernetics individuals. Results are encouraging.
    JUNE 30, 2035

    David 4 becomes the first commercially available model of the David series. He is eventually expected to improve work-flow and efficiency at offices and homes across the world.
    APRIL 1, 2042

    Weyland makes significant intellectual and emotional updates to the David android, further increasing human acceptance.
    JULY 7, 2052

    Only 7% of humans can recognize the sixth generation of David as a cybernetic individual.
    FEBRUARY 26, 2062

    As production costs for the David series decreases, Weyland Industries is increasingly able to extend those savings to everyday consumers, leading to remarkable proliferation of the product.
    APRIL 7, 2066

    Weyland builds and successfully deploys thousands of Seventh Generation Davids into workplaces across the universe. Human acceptance of David 7 reaches an all-time high thanks to Weyland’s highly classified emotional encoding technology, David 7 can accurately replicate most human emotions down to the tiniest nuance while consistently achieving all mission objectives.
    JULY 6, 2068
    There's also loads of other stuff I just singled out the stuff about Fassbender's character. He hasn't been featured too much in the trailers but I think it's pretty obvious by now that he's going to be a key player. Also apparently Fassbender said he based his characterization off of David Bowie to an extent, which is always cool

    IGN did an Analysis video for Trailer 2

    http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/03/21...etheus-trailer

    Very informative.

    Apologies if this was already posted, I went back 2 pages didn't see anything.
    Empire Magazine's breakdowns are a little bit more detailed: Trailer #1 Breakdown, Trailer #2 Breakdown. Of course, don't click the links if you don't want spoilers.

    So is it just AVP being considered non-canon or is all of the expanded universe being considered non-canon?

    Some might even argue that Aliens is just a spin-off and therefore not a part of the canon.

    i dont buy into this idea and i dont see why anyone would

    fox didn't make alien, ridley scott and giger did. its not really theirs, even though they own the rights.

    plus the avp movies don't make any fuckin sense and seem to go against a lot of what the original movies set up about the creatures and how they operate, not to mention the timelines of the alien and predator standalone series

    to use an example it'd be like if they tried to explain fox and the hound 2 after the events of the first movie

    you just can't, it has no place in the established timeline

    I remember back when word first got out he was playing an android. I thought it was a spoiler since i assumed they'd be going the Alien 1 route. I think it's safe to say that's not the case.

    I was always under the impression he decided to kill them off because his mission was to find sample/creature and bring it back and they were off to screw up that plan via jumping onto a life boat and turning on the auto destruct

    Everything else was expendable
