Does The New "Prometheus" International Poster Reveal Idris Elba's Character's Fate?

Prometheus

A week or so ago, Sergio asked for your thoughts on whether Idris Elba's character in the film lives until the end, or if he succumbs to the "Brotha Rule" - token black guy whose purpose really is to be sacrificed so that the others (the white characters) can live.

Well... maybe this new international poster tells us something. Lemme clarify, and maybe you'll see what I'm seeing. Humor me... it's Thursday and another slow news day.

We know that Idris' character is Janek, the captain of Prometheus, the ship that carries the crew on its scientific expedition to strange lands. Essentially, he's in the spacehip's driver's seat.

Looking at the new international poster below, you can see that the Prometheus ship rams into the larger derelict Alien spaceship, in what some believe is done in an attempt to stop that ship from reaching earth. 

But regardless of why Prometheus rams into the Alien ship, can we assume that Janek is piloting the spaceship at the time this crash happens, possibly in an act of sacrifice to either save his crew, or earth, as the rest of the crew runs to safety?

And what happens after this crash, assuming Idris is piloting the ship when it happens? Does he survive it? Or is it RIP Janek afterward?

Or am I just starting shit here? :)
