New Prometheus Viral Celebrates Michael Fassbender’s Robot, David
But at the same time, the marketing for Prometheus has really only hinted at its Alien roots, and a sizable portion of the summer moviegoing audience they need to show up will likely have never seen Scott’s original sci-fi movie. So the marketing has been even more creative and intriguing than usual, focusing around the corporation Weyland Industries that sends the Nostromo ship into space to begin with. There was the model of the ship itself, the TED Talk given by Peter Weyland himself (Guy Pearce), and now there’s this video to introduce us to David, the robot played by Michael Fassbender. It’s pretty spectacular– take a look below.
