My post is better  :P but sometimes I don't have time to read through 9 pages.  My mistake.

Some of the smartest and classiest product placement I've seen in a while. Well done AMD and Ridley.

But your products end up killing people. Just saying ;-)

I really do hate AMD being referenced in this. The moment that company ceases to exist or gets a change of brand name after merging with another, it's permanently screwed up.

Doesn't he say we are Walter?

You're right! My mistake.

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.

Well, that makes zero sense. Faulty DNA wouldn't affect how you instruct a robot, any more than it affects your ability to use a keyboard or speak to a Siri-alike.

Actually we work in tandem, as you bothered to produce a screenshot, and mine has the matching framing (with the glass cubicle in the background of both!)

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.

I really liked this Walter infomercial. It's as creepy as it is intriguing. Here's hoping the David vs. Walter scenes in the actual movie crush it.

now we know that the shot of Fassbender in the Covenant teaser is Walter and not David, so he openign scene will probably feature him with Weyland and not David, interesting

Does anybody read these threads before posting, or is it a noob thing? At least we're all on the same page..

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)

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 got a bit of a 2001 vibe from that viral.





Add a creator's head statue + 2001 kitsch = that lobby scene

Actually I didn't read your post when I posted mine newbie.

Pvt. Himmel do you think Walter will take over David's personality like it hints in the disclaimer in the new viral?

Loving this viral. "We are Walter."
Also that scene at the end totally reminds of the lobby scene in 2001 to me too.

You know, I was kind of nerved about the whole AMD thing but then it dawned on me, David probably has a chip stamped with "Intel Inside". Suddenly everything's alright again.  :laugh:

Also the bugger just needs some juices and grows himself, like a goddamn terminator!

I was expecting more footage to come out of SXSW. Oh well, the movie is soon enough.

Well the 4chan leaks suggest that

Is that really big spoiler? I want to look at it, but I'm not sure.

I wonder how they're going to handle David and Walter's interaction, if they have much at all. It would be a total wasted opportunity if they didn't.
