Anything Prometheus related gets me super excited. Growing up watching Alien and Aliens in the Triefenbach household constantly, this franchise is in my blood. With Damon Lindelof being one of the co-writers of Ridley Scott’s return to to the genre he helped define, one had to wonder if Lindelof would take a cue from J.J. Abrams’ execution of viral internet videos. We have the answer to that question. It is a resounding yes!
Peter Weyland of Weyland Industries (not Weyland-Yutani Corp., yet) gives a speech at TED about his chance to change the world. See the video here. Also, of note, it looks like Fox has published a website for Weyland Industries here. What is strange about the website is not only is it a secure server, but it has “OFFLINE” blinking in the top right hand corner. There is verbiage that states “Interested parties can expect to find out more within the next few days.” So, stay tuned to DTB for more info.
To go behind the scenes, TED talked with Damon Lindehof about the speech.
