The viral marketing campaign for Ridley Scott's Prometheus continues with this fantastic new video featuring Michael Fassbender as the android David. Androids have always played a big part in the Alien universe that Scott created. In the first film we had Ash played by Ian Holm, Aliens had Bishop played by Lance Henrickson and even Winowna Ryder played one named Call. Now we have the android David.
Welcome to the eighth generation of cybernetic advancement. The new David 8 has been re-imagined, re-engineered and brought to life with better technological, intellectual, physical and emotional performance than ever before.
In the first viral video we saw for this movie Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) did a TED Talk discussing the massive technological advances made in the future in which the story is set. That included the creation of artificial intelligence. In this latest video we witness the birth of the very first android, and Fassbender is awesome in it!
In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system's natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
