@ShaneFinneran - Good point. One of the pups flies into the room to scan it as soon as they open the door. The worms reanimate while its still flying around in there. Perhaps it was calibrated to ignore "small" lifeforms to keep it from constantly pointing out bacteria and other tiny organisms.

I watched it again. For a split second the camera focuses on the soil before David puts his foot down. It looks like you can see two immobile (inert?) worms. Or rather, when he lifts his foot up one of the worms flips out of the soil and starts wriggling. The other is hard to make out but seems to start moving as well. Dunno how they survived David putting his full weight directly on top of them, but whatever. I'm satisfied that the crew didn't bring them in from the ship or outside.

I'm in total agreement about how the black goo affected the worms. While it may be possible that the sealed room preserved the worms in the soil as if they were in a stasis chamber, I'm hopeful that someone actually remembers seeing exactly the scene I'm talking about.

@Chopper3 - Agreed. Nice catch nonetheless. :) I'll keep my eyes peeled when I watch it again.

comment The 'same landscape shot' conundrum
Given that the Engineers were still in the process of terraforming LV223 and the planet seemed lifeless when the Prometheus flew over, I don't see how they could be the same planet.

comment Where did the worm that appeared in the black goo chamber come from?
I agree that the room was probably hermetically sealed. If that were the case, any living organism would have died, including the worms. Perhaps the worms would have had time to gnaw on the head a bit first, but I doubt they could have survived for two thousand years without oxygen or food. It's not like it was a stasis chamber which the Engineers clearly had elsewhere.

comment Why does the Driver not have a name?
+1 You really make me want to give this movie another chance. I was severely unimpressed with the overly-dramatic non-scenes throughout the film. It seemed to be trying way too hard to make a very important point, but perhaps I didn't give it a chance.

comment Why did the Engineer at the start of the movie drink the dark liquid?
Scott has stated in interviews that the planet at the beginning "could be any planet," meaning that the Engineers have probably terraformed many planets and seeded them with life via self-sacrifice.

comment Why did Ridley Scott decide on doing a prequel?
@KevinHowell - The dead Space Jockey from Alien does not appear in Prometheus. The movies take place on different planets: LV-426 vs. LV-223.
