Are There Aliens In Prometheus Or Not?

More contradictory quote from Ridley Scott about his not prequel to Alien, Prometheus.

He indicates that Guy Pearce's character is a direct connection to the previous Alien movie. Clearly setting this film in the same universe. But then he claims that's the only connection with the previous movie.

What's going on? I have no idea.

    I'm so looking forward to Prometheus. It has the potential to be such a smart film. I'm hoping the old-school sci-fi Ridley Scott came to direct this one.

    Very excited for this movie ….

    I'm going to guess that it's a mistranslation of "a new world" and people are taking it literally as "a universe disconnected from the previous milieu."

    Because it clearly isn't.

    You can probably save a spot for someone else because I rarely watch movies.

    Is this a movie about the discovery of fire?

    Well I could have sworn I saw an Alien pod-thing like what spits out a larval creature in the first movie in the trailer. A while back I read a leaked summary, which was later disavowed, but everything I've read since and seen in the trailer 100% matches it.

    If so, and thus this might be a spoiler, this movie is about how we find some alien artifacts on Earth and then go exploring, looking for an alien homeworld of a race that might have seeded us on Earth only to discover they were destroyed by some bioweapons they created, i.e., the xenomorphs. (Which, frankly, doesn't really sound that exciting because the whole Life Here Began Out There trope has been pretty done to death in my book. If you mash up a little Battlestar Galactica with the videogame series Xenogears/Xenosaga, you're right there.)
