Ridley Scott-directed Prometheus Creates Buzz with TED Video from 2023

PrometheusOne of the highly anticipated movies of the 2012 summer is the Ridley Scott-directed ‘Prometheus‘. It’s been widely speculated that the movie is a prequel to Scott’s 1979 movie ‘Alien’, however Scott recently revealed the connection between the two movies is actually the corporation behind the ships.

Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur named Peter Weyland (played by Guy Pearce) and in Alien the Nostromo is owned by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation. A website has been created for Weyland Industries, celebrating its 50 years of Building Better Worlds. A video of Sir Peter Weyland’s talk at the 2023 TED Conference was just added to the site this week.

In the video we see that 11 years from now TED in held in a massive stadium with an audience of 36,000, and If you’ve watched the 2012 TED Presentation by Vijay Kumar about ‘Robots that fly… and cooperate’, you know that the flying robot cameras aren’t that far away.

Prometheus is scheduled to open in North America on June 8. Check out the trailer on YouTube, or visit the website, Facebook page or forum for news and updates.
