  1. I think they really should have started out with the TED video in the movie. People who didn't see it were not shown the arrogance of Peter Weyland and his god complex.

    Agreed. I think most of the viral videos should have been in it. I know there are duration problems, but maybe some short clips would have been nice. I remember watching a behind the scenes video and there were some scenes of the Prometheus crew doing some profile video clips of themselves. I think that would have been a nice way to introduce the characters.
  2. Anybody seen this date: 11 October 2012 on Weyland Industries Timeline? I think it's not a coincidence...

    WEYLAND INCORPORATES
    Weyland Corporation is recognized as a legal entity and corporation under United States law and receives their Certificate of Incorporation from the Companies House in the United Kingdom. Due to the combined value of Sir Peter Weyland’s various patents and patent-pendings, the company incorporates with a higher fair market valuation than any other company in history.

  3. forgive my ignorance-- i was spoiler free prior to seeing the movie and avoided these -- where does one find the virals... how many are there?  recommendations for how to view all the supplemental material?
  4. My money is on it having something to do with Part 2. Maybe he filmed it back to back like the Matrix sequels and is just keeping a tight lid on it. Maybe that's why he hired Guy Pearce - he seemed like such a waste in this film under all that make-up. Maybe there will be a flash back that deals with him?

    Can't wait for 10-11-12 now. :)
  5. It's 10-11-12, not 11-12-13. As much as the American dating system bugs me (that should mean November! Ridley!) October is when we're expecting the home media release. But that's probably too obvious...
  6. 11.12.13 is either the DVD/BLURAY release or the announcement of the sequal

    Seems a little premature for sequel announcements. (I mean the numbers where put there weeks, even a month or more ago.) More likely a blu/dvd release date. But this seems odd as well. Why 'advertise' something like that at the end of the film. We know it's coming anyway.

    My guess is that it's something 'else.' If anything ... it's one more thing to keep the buzz/excitement going UNTIL then.

    Expect to be teased until the wheels fall of guys.  :laugh:
  7. I would've liked a scene on Earth with Shaw (and possibly Holloway) actively pitching to Weyland and/or Vickers, as was seen in the viral.  But I also think there's power in the franchise having never really shown Earth up close.  And I think a scene such as this could've worked too, but with that kind of longer, drawn out prelude (in addition to the sacrifice Engineer, David on the ship, the cave, etc) it would be even more of a different kind of movie altogether from the Alien franchise had it done so - and judging by the mixed response among fans, who knows how that would've gone.

    I don't recall if the "jet ski" scene with Weyland and David was ever filmed.  A lot of people would've probably hated it, but I would've liked to see that.  The film seems to float between Blade Runner concepts (the synthetic person, the family neuroses therein, creation and free will) and the Alien standards.

    Following on the Yutani thread from the viral, I would've perhaps made someone onboard (Ford?) a Yutani plant who goes snooping alone and suffers a terrible fate.
  8. Why, oh WHY is all this viral stuff done more sophisticated than the main movie itself?
    The Weyland site: Gorgeous!
    The viral videos: Stunning!

    The film itself simply can not hold up to the high expectations created by the advertising...  :(
    It's as simple as that...

    If there ever will be a sequel, I would not wonder if this little snippet here already gave us a hint for the title and/or the ships' name...  8)
