Here’s a viral clip from the upcoming movie Prometheus. Don’t know what Prometheus is? Then watch this trailer.
Remember Weyland is the faceless corporation that desperately wants to get their hands on an alien. In this scene Peter Weyland is talking at TED in the year 2023. The first Alien film takes place in 2122. So what we’re seeing in this clip gives us a much better sense of the world and its history that these series of films take place in.
A quick official snippet about the video: “Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade.
Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilization, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, “If we can, we must.” After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where he’s heading next. Wherever that may be, we will most certainly want to follow.
Conceived and designed by Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof and directed by Luke Scott.”
