The How It Should Have Ended guys have gotten their hands on Ridley Scott’s non-Alien prequel Alien prequel Prometheus, but I feel like they’ve lost sight of their target goal a bit. Because this video doesn’t actually show how the movie should’ve ended… it pretty much shows the events in the movie pretty much exactly as they actually happened. It’s funny, mind you, it’s just not an actual alternative to how things went down in the movie. Still, bonus points for Noomi Rapace putting “scientists” in air quotes during her briefing.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
