Prometheus is Ridley Scott’s new film due out the summer of 2012. Rumors abound that it’s an extension of the Blader Runner or Alien franchises, but apparently Ridley Scott himself set those rumors straight. The only connection to those two films and Prometheus is the dystopian vision that corporations will rule the world, and the name Weyland, of Weyland-Yutani in Alien, the corporation that sent out the Nostromo.
In his TED Talk of 2023, Peter Weyland, played by Guy Pierce, introduces himself to us…and provides a tremendous teaser for the film. Great Scott! What good marketing!
