The online viral marketing campaign for the upcoming sci-fi flick Prometheus has officially just launched. Featuring Guy Pearce in an historic TED Talk in the year 2023, the video was created by co-writer Damon Lindelof (one of the masterminds behind Lost, so we expect intriguing viral content to continue to follow) and director Ridley Scott and was directed by his son, Luke Scott.
The teaser trailer for Prometheus was awesome enough to instantly make it one of our most highly anticipated movies of 2012, and Ridley Scott has since confirmed that while Prometheus won’t be a direct prequel to the Alien series, it will indeed share the same universe.
You can check out the viral website of Weyland Industries online or jump straight to the TED Talk video below of Peter Weyland, who’s played by Pearce. Joining him in the cast of Prometheus when it hits theaters in late May or early June this year are Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, and Charlize Theron.
