Prometheus, the upcoming Ridley Scott film that isn’t a prequel to the Alien Franchise has done something pretty cool to launch their viral campaign. They’ve partnered up with everyone’s favorite lecture series on science, society and technology (TED) and released a clip of one of the film’s main characters (Peter Weyland – Played by Guy Pearce), giving his own TED talk in the year 2023.
We now also have the URL for the website of Weyland Industries, where the viral campaign will most likely launch full force.
Here is the official word from the TED Blog:
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.
