As a bit of Sci-Fi fan (particularly Alien and Blade Runner), I’m childishly excited about the release of Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s new epic based in the Alien universe. The film itself looks like it could be a return to dark science greatness for Scott, and they have ramped up the promotion with this great TED talk envioned for 2023.
Making reference to the corporation involved in the fateful events of the Alien Series, Weyland Industries’ Peter Weyland, uses this TED talk to discuss human achievement and look at our greatest technological achievements, as well launching what he thinks will be our next one. This is a very clever promo clip but it’s also recommended viewing. Go.
