Prometheus / 2049

A scene from Blade Runner 2049 (
Warner Brothers) compared visually to the opening of Prometheus. And the internal past/future of that story.

Ridley Scott appears to have revealed a clue to the links between the Blade Runner universe in the Prometheus saga in the new 2049 film.
Scott said in 2015 that the next Prometheus film will be called Alien: Paradise Lost.
John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost details the Biblical story of the fall of man, the temptation of Adam and Eve by Satan, and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.
The original Prometheus was a prequel to the first Alien film, which Scott directed back in 1979.
The two Blade Runner films take place in 2019 and 2049.
There are deep layers of a story way beyond Blade Runner 2049 that will be revealed and unfolding for years. If you have not seen it, I highly recommend you view it on the big screen, while you can.
The predictive nature of science fiction films is well known. Blade Runner 2049 may have had a precognitive insight beyond the human imagination.
More on that in the future....

Needless to say, also read Goro and Christopher Loring Knowles

Film buffs may find it interesting to note that the characters having knowledge of the original 'Blade Runner' film becomes a plot point in the book 'Ready Player One,' the basis of Steven Spielberg's latest film project.
