New Prometheus Clip

I came across this clip this morning and was absolutely wowed. Not only is this yet another awesome preview of the upcoming Prometheus movie, it manages to establish the movie’s deep background even further and does so in a way that’s both plausible and relevant to today. Exploring the upcoming technological singularity, the birth of nanotech, biomedical and AI, and previewing the birth of the Weyland Corp – which as we all know went on to become Weyland-Yutani, the biggest monopoly in the history of the human race.

But don’t take my word, check it out for yourself. I feel like writing now, which is how I feel whenever I see something really inspiring! And God damn if this wasn’t a far better use of Guy Pierce’s talents than that cheesy movie Lockout!

  1. TED talks crossed with science-fiction companies. I love it!
    BTW, when he said “Allow me to introduce myself”, I almost expected him to start rapping that Jay-Z song. I am so a young adult.

  2. The closer it gets to the release date, the more I am wanting to see this. I admit I skipped Lockout. But partly becaue it reminded me too much of the Escape from New York and LA movies that Kurt Russell did. But without the deliberate attempt to be cheesy and comic.
