Thats because they wanted to create distinction between the two. Weyland-Yutani
probably have the largest cybernetic factory on American soil... :D

I said Ridley will reference Frankenstein again...

Explanation of Victor's / Walters quote or perhaps Davids' :laugh:

QuoteVictor has tried to play God, has tried -- in fact -- to be like the Titan Prometheus, who stepped in to help his brother Epimetheus create humankind when Epimetheus mistakenly made all of the animals first, giving them all the "good" qualities (i.e. thick hide or fur to protect them, sharp teeth and claws to help them to eat, etc.).  Prometheus had to get creative to come up with qualities that would help us to be the best: he made us walk upright like the gods, and he gave us the fire that would help defend us from the cold and help us to cook the meat that our teeth could not otherwise chew.  Victor has tried to create a new human species, a species that he expected would "bless him as its Creator."  He wanted to perfect something that he saw as imperfect -- human frailty and fragility -- but he learned, too late, that human beings are not meant to create in this way: his creation turns out to be horrifying, perhaps in part because it was made by an imperfect (i.e. human) creator.  Thus, when Victor describes the dangers of striving to be "'greater than [one's] nature will allow,'" he also refers to the dangers of a human being who tries to play God. Victor's hubris results in tragedy for so many people, including himself and the individual he creates.

I think Ridley will again continue to play with this...
There is a certain possibility that many aspects of SCIFIED article could be correct.

If it remains in the background, fine. But it's too overt for me. Lindelof already called Prometheus "Frankenstein 101". I found the Lawrence of Arabia obsession much more fascinating.
Title: Re: Meet Walter - 10th March - New Viral
Post by: Enoch on Mar 08, 2017, 07:45:10 PM
Lawrence reference is cool, but original Frankenstein novel is great too...
Not just a monster story but great philosophical work. Alien movies have a great potential
just because they can mix all this horror-sf-mystery stories into one huge epic...

Post by: Enoch on Mar 08, 2017, 07:53:38 PM
Spoiler
Maybe there is a scene where David opens Walters scull to transfer his
memory into his AMD powered system :laugh: Or maybe Walter is the evil guy... I more and more think
that there is something far more sinister behind his character.
[close]


Maybe this will show how deep and profound Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's work is:

QuoteFrankenstein points the Faustian moral to Walton: "Learn from me, if not by my precepts, at least by my example, how dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge, and how much happier that man is who believes his native town to be the world, than he who aspires to become greater than his nature will allow" (p. 53). But this moral— particularly appropriate to the realistic novel— is argued very ambivalently. Even the monster repeats the argument (as he must, being Frankenstein's alter ego): "Increase of knowledge only discovered to me more clearly what a wretched outcast I was" (p. 131). As his knowledge grows, he cries out: "Oh, that I had for ever remained in my native wood, nor known nor felt beyond the sensation of hunger, thirst, and heat!" (p. 120). Yet Mary Shelley knows, as the monster learned, that there is no returning to innocence; the rhetoric implies that the innocence is a lie,  and that the disaster that follows its loss is as inevitable as the loss itself. "Of what a strange nature is knowledge! It clings to the mind, when it has once seized on it, like a lichen on the rock. I wished sometimes to shake off all thought and feeling; but I learned that there was but one means to overcome the sensation of pain, and that was death" (p. 120). The monster knows that only silence ends the disparity between word and life. Frankenstein, however, cannot give up the quest or insist unambiguously on the moral of his story. His last speech is a masterpiece of doubt: "Farewell, Walton!" he says. "Seek happiness in tranquillity, and avoid ambition, even if it be only the apparently innocent one of distinguishing yourself in science and discoveries. Yet why do I say this? I have myself been blasted in these hopes, yet another may succeed" (pp. 217-18). Death is the only resolution, and yet it resolves nothing since knowledge and innocence are continuing aspects of human experience. The tension worked out in Frankenstein between ambition and natural harmony, as between creator and creature, mind and reality, is not resolved.

I see how she influenced Joseph Conrad...

Yeah, Frankenstein is a very deep, erudite work. It is a Gothic horror story, too, told in a framed narrative, etc, etc. But it is a work of much thought, ruminating on the nature of man.

I find the "evolution" of the synthetics to be pretty interesting. David's an independent thinker that doesn't appear to have any issue with taking a life (or lives). The jury is out on Walter but he appears more under foot. Ash of course was a company man with some David like characteristics while Bishop was a solid citizen.

It's an open event, it's not for press. But either way they maybe differences but with them both releasing on the same day, I just feel like it'll be similar footage. Maybe a little more for those who made it to the event as an exclusive.

Pretty cool. Quite reminiscent of HBO's Westworld but at the same
time very much different. The whole scene of Walter's creation looks
like some kind of ritual.

Again Luke Scott.

Walter is the world's most advanced synthetic companion, designed to help you achieve a better human experience. Each model is individually calibrated to serve its owner's unique set of needs and preferences.

Conceived by Ridley Scott and 3AM, directed by Luke Scott, and produced by RSA Films.

That's some pretty high level of product placement. Cool little short, but the concept of "take home your android" is pretty foreign to the franchise. I always figured they were only privately tasked for the company and military.

So, apparently synthetics have two names now. The Davids came from a time when it was just one name designation followed by their generation number. Here, we have 'Meer Walter'.

The manufacturing process seems a little over-simplistic. Just filling up a bag with fluid. There also appears to be nothing inside the body, even though Ash and Bishop still apparently required lots of tubes and electronic components in there.

also it looks like they hired the same artist for this who molded Noomi Rapace (at the very least he made for those silly masks the 'engineers' are wearing.

I really enjoyed this. I like its consistency with alien. What I mean is, when Ripley burns Ash in Alien, the synthetic skin melts off and we are shown an under case which gives the face it's shape. This Viral shows that that design seems to be consistent.

I wonder if it was a conscious choice by Scott and the designers to do this. Or am I just overthinking it, I wonder ?

Disclaimer at bottom of frame, during the lobby scene, reads:
"Matchmaking interview and DNA screening required. Customers with genetic abnormalities may not meet requirements for safety certification. No refunds after consciousness imprint. Default payments will forfeit DNA rights in perpetuity."

So the Walters are custom-made slaves, to fit DNA profile of their owners. The 'we' collectivity removes any nagging doubts of individuality/self-determination. Was it ever made official that we were sharing the Blade Runner universe, outside the Prometheus virals? Timelines don't exactly fit.

Overall I prefer the (with retrospect, ludicrously sinister) foreshadowing of the David 8 advert, that was done in the style of some sort of IT commercial, like Apple. Sort of subverted the nauseating smugness of those ads.

This was more like a contemporary BMW ad, right down to the type of landscape used and the washed out colour scheme. The way they use these aesthetics for the creation of sentient life is pretty chilling.

Also like how Walter is handed the same sort of bottle you attach to the side of a hamster cage.

As well as the resemblance of the endoskeleton to 'melted Ash', at a couple of points it recalls the dummy figure seen in the red band trailer.

I think this is the equivalent of a seventies Ridley Scott advert for British Airways or suchlike. It's not the actual process, rather a stylised version for marketing purposes in universe. It's remarkably close in tone to the old Ridley ads, so his son's done a grand job there!

Saw that too. They went out of their way to highlight that, although it looks more like two separate circles, which you could read into also. 'This is David, with the '8' broken, a few synapses keeping him from attaining full awareness'

Anyone else notice the small disclaimer text, insinuating that Walter "imprints" on whoever he interviews with and / or serves. This prompts a "no refunds" statement by Weyland-Yutani, as it seems each Walter unit is capable of developing an alternate personality based on who they "imprint" on and associate with. 8)

And also i must say....

As biosocial compatibility states: Each Walter is fined-tuned to your specific biosocial stamp - a customized companion as unique as you are. Walter's biosocial compatibility contains unique personality configuration.

According to this I assume as an owner one can configure his/her own dream Walter. I'm not an expert in A.I. but this personal configuration (especially for commercial use) should/must be limited for secure reasons by behavioral inhibitors.

Anyone else notice the small disclaimer text, insinuating that Walter "imprints" on whoever he interviews with and / or serves. This prompts a "no refunds" statement by Weyland-Yutani, as it seems each Walter unit is capable of developing an alternate personality based on who they "imprint" on and associate with. 8)

Quote from: Molecules on Mar 10, 2017, 04:31:48 PM
Disclaimer at bottom of frame, during the lobby scene, reads:
"Matchmaking interview and DNA screening required. Customers with genetic abnormalities may not meet requirements for safety certification. No refunds after consciousness imprint. Default payments will forfeit DNA rights in perpetuity."

So the Walters are custom-made slaves, to fit DNA profile of their owners. The 'we' collectivity removes any nagging doubts of individuality/self-determination.

I don't quite get what they're getting at either. Maybe the idea is that by this point we've cured most disease etc by having perfected bio genetics, 'Gattaca' and designer babies for the rich have happened, and we have retained 20th century property law which is of course written by and for the likes of Weyland-Yutani.

Maybe 'abnormalities' refers to genetic predisposition to violence, etc. They don't want any potentially unstable consciousness imprinted on Walter models.

Bishop: Well, that explains it then. The A/2s always were a bit twitchy.

I didn't know it involved a big spoiler when I asked my original question. Don't take it personally. I didn't mean anything by it.

I know you didn't, buddy. 8)

So...they have a replica of the head. Foresight into the plot anyone? If it took 10 years for them to get to AC, then when did they manage to acquire the engineer head information or even make a replica?
And this being seen, means that Walter's intentions are clearly to meet them.

Maybe the recordings from the helmets of the Prometheus crew were sent to high CEO´s of the company. They know about the engineers, Peter Weyland´s fate and just about everything that happened in LV-223, and now they are up to finish –or perhaps, amplify– what their contemporaries did.

I don't think it's intended to be an Engineer head per se. Just a bit of a fun along the same themes and visuals.

QuoteWhen Zack [Eller of Fox] and Chris [Eyerman of 3AM] and the team came to us with the opportunity, this one struck a chord," explains Karl Stewart, President of 48 Communications. "Because it allowed us to show AMD not only in the right light, with machine intelligence and artificial intelligence, but it's an elevated story that allows us to show AMD both through the fictional use of where AI could be, as well as the application of real-world-today technology in application and other facets. It wasn't just 'let's put a logo on an android,' it's the full 360."

  The idea for the film quickly centered on the character of Walter, and on creating an in-world advertisement that would show how the AI technology in the Alien universe might be marketed to people looking for a possibly-evil sidekick.

Once the brief made its way to Scott, he set about refining the idea, aware that he wasn't just creating a piece of branded content—he was also expanding the very nature of the Alien franchise by showing fans, for the first time, how the synthetics are made. "I took a lot of reference in the bio-medical world about 3D printing limbs and organs, going down to the molecular level about how Walter is produced from a genetic level and grown traditionally in an artificial womb, or is he—is it—created as an adult version, and then the information is implanted via the AMD chip?" Scott says. "We decided he was an adult, and 3D printed an exo-skeleton. There was a desire to put red and fleshy stuff in there, and we said, 'No, no, no,' to the designer. 'You can't do that.' This goes back to 1979 and Ash, he was all white liquid and weird organic milky fluid. So we had to take the technology out of it."

  Of course, when you start playing with an in-world concept in the Alien universe, you have to accept that you're operating in a dystopia. It's a franchise that means a lot to people in part because it's bleak, things aren't what they seem, and people (artificial or otherwise) tend to have a hidden agenda.

"A lot of times, science fiction makes 100 years from now unrecognizable. You don't even recognize the world that you're living in anymore." says Zachary Eller, 20th Century Fox's senior vice president of marketing partnerships. "What's so cool about the Alien universe is that it's the future, yes, but it's still very much our world. So having AMD build the chips for a Weyland-Yutani android is not an unreasonable thing that could happen. That's why it all makes sense—it's not just to shove a product placement in something, it's to root fantasy in reality and create a real world where people say, 'This could actually happen.'"

Well Filmed. The simplicity of the construction felt a bit odd. Instant android, just add....some liquid to a frame? The skin tissue I could see, but hair growth is a bit hard to buy. I take it that was David giving the "learn from me" speech after the trailer was over? Feels too ominous to be Walter. Feels like something David is saying to Shaw or a member of the Covenant, and it's been cut and reworked to seem like Walter.

I'm glad this is just for a 'viral' piece.  In the 'real' dystopian Alien universe, we've seen hardly any product brands apart from W-Y. Either W-Y would have simply taken over AMD, or it would be irrelevant what chips were being used.

(...I still don't understand why the new, improved 'Walter' model android looks pretty much like the 'David 8' model apart from it being one of the important plot points)

I somehow doubt that. But I hope we get the scenes that may or may not have been cut from different versions and I wonder how long it will take before we get to see everything from the entire Prequel series. There are scenes we have yet to see from Prometheus and may be stuff with Shaw cut from this film.

You know what I would like? The early drafts of this script as it went through various changes. We know there we drafts when it was still PROMETHEUS 2... They were writing it for a while. Who knows how much of that stuff was given to the author of the Prequel book.

Why Walter model doesn't have different face than David model? :) It would be logical. Answer: Fassbender can play both :)

Not only because of that, there is one more thing...

Yes, he is... so what? That doesnt mean that they could not
become same at some point.



Maybe he is not David, but David could be Walter... :) :)

I'm not talking about that. I'm just asking why two different android models look the same (except the hairstyle). It seems odd :).

i could think of nobody worse to part in the alien universe than wahlberg.

i liked him in his rock pairing with the 80's style scam movie, but that's about it to be fair.
and a rock android colonial marine sounds fantasticly funny but really not wanted.

i think bradley cooper could actually portray a real sinister android. or a alien:resurection style bad guy.

i would prefer ridley would stay away from 'popular' actors though. i prefer less known, moldable actors instead
of big names that want to show their 'fantasticism' in a xeno universe.

Boyd Holbrook or Steven Merchant would deliver fitting roles i would think.

I just noticed this.  Few questions.

Why are rejects from The Black Hole build walter?
Why is all the lyrical music used in these trailer so awful (if you like it cool I find it insufferable)

Right now Prometheus had me at a fever pitch.  I was checking this site all the time.  This time around I have so little interest in the film, the media surrounding, it or any of the ads.  I'll see it, it will be a movie. I will go home and wonder why I didn't just wait for netflix.
