Recently, the trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel Prometheus debuted. Today, a new and clever promo video surfaced, showing character Peter Weyland (portrayed by Guy Pearce) reciting a very passionate speech. Watch it after the jump.
Here is a brief synopsis, as provided by Deadline. Below the summary is the video.
The video is not from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus but was conceived by Scott and Damon Lindelof to be shown at the TED conference running now in Long Beach. Luke Scott directed the elaborate bit, which shows Guy Pearce’s character Peter Weyland addressing the annual thinkers confab in the “year of our Lord 2023.” There’s even a website for Weyland Industries. It’s a cool idea to introduce some of the film’s mythology without actually showing the film. Fox’s actual Prometheus pic is set for a June 8, 2012 release.
