A new Prometheus viral video was released online called "Our Family Is Growing". Today the viral website was also updated with an all new company timeline for Weyland Industries.
Here is a sample timeline:
Using a precursor to the atmospheric processor of his own invention, Peter Weyland is able to generate a localized synthetic atmosphere above the polar ice cap, effectively ending global warming. - February 2, 2016
Using capital from his 2015 success, Weyland acquires copyrights to technology developed by NASA’s innovative but poorly funded Project Prometheus. With Weyland’s significantly augmented funding for the project, JIMO became a reality and proves the existence of simple life in Europa’s ocean. - December 19, 2017
Weyland manufactures the first advanced android prototype model of its kind. He is affectionately called David, a name Sir Peter Weyland had initially reserved for his own human son. - January 7, 2025
Weyland makes significant adjustments to the David android prototype, facilitating David’s first interaction with humans. This initial meeting is very promising. - January 1, 2028
After years of litigation, Weyland wins the David patent lawsuit against the Japanese start-up Yutani Corporation, effectively protecting the investments of both Weyland Industries and its shareholders. - December 12, 2029
Discovery of Archeron LV-426
Weyland astronomers discover multiple moons and a ringed planet just outside the Zeta 2 Reticula System, which are possibly able to support life. Weyland expects to travel there within the century. - May 14, 2039
For anyone that is a fan of the Alien franchise they will see plenty of nods in the timeline to the original film and the sequels that followed. Here is a heads up look in timeline for colonial marines, power loaders, and prison colonies.
If you have not checked out the new extended trailer, click here to do so. The Prometheus crew consists of: Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron), Captain Janek (Idris Elba), Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green), Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and David (Michael Fassbender).
Prometheus arrives in theaters on June 8. The video is narrarated by Fassbender (or so I think) and shows the birth of his robot. Check out the new viral video below and share your thoughts:
Based on the timeline, it looks as though the film will have a number of nods to the original films. Do you think that Fassbender or Lance Henriksen make a better robot crew member?
