Michael Fassbender Appears in Disturbing Viral Video for Prometheus
03.17.12 by BJSprecher
The viral marketing campaign for director Ridley Scott's Prometheus kicked off with a bang late last month with the release of a TEDTalk video from the year 2023 that revealed Guy Pearce's character to be Peter Weyland, half of the Weyland-Yutani corporation that employed the Nostromo in Alien. The most recent viral video was discovered today when attendees of the Prometheus panel at WonderCon were given Weyland business cards that directed them to a viral website and, ultimately, the new viral video, which includes a disturbing appearance by Michael Fassbender as the android David. If you're jumpy, you may want to watch this video with a friend because it definitely gave us all a start the first time we watched it.
Prometheus was written by Damon Lindelof (Cowboys and Aliens) from a script originally written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour). The cast includes Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green and Patrick Wilson.
