When do people think that we'll be receiving the next piece of viral marketing?

So...is the full name of the guy in Alien 3 Michael Bishop Weyland?  :o

Um, actually I believe that according to the film itself (which is really the only reliable source of canon), his name was simply "Bishop II".  The name "Michael Bishop Weyland" sounds like some sort of EU bollocks to me, or perhaps it was from an earlier draft of the Alien 3 script?

Michael Bishop was from the novelization. He was never a "Weyland." Just another employee.

Michael Bishop was from a trading card - not the script or novelisation.

No "Weyland".

I figured this was the case.  So, who the frak came up with the "Micheal Bishop Weyland" bollocks then?  Some deluded fanboy I bet.

I love the subtle Weyland logo design in the fingerprint. I would imagine this is to signify that the android was made by Weyland Corp?

Yep, that's my thought as well. There is a glut of content on there to be dissected... brilliant!

In less than a decade, Weyland Corporation became a worldwide leader in emerging technologies and launched the first privatized industrial mission to leave the planet Earth.

Looking at the updated website. I'm not sure I really like the idea of making the Weyland Corporation this tangible, touchable entity with answers. In some ways it's better and more interesting to have the faceless evil.

I don't like that in 50 years they are already "Building better worlds" throughout the solar system. It's far too quick. The idea that they are building worlds works in ALIENS because it's set over 50 years after ALIEN.

I was really hoping that this movie would be the FIRST deep space mission that the human race has undertook. Now that's lost for me. And the whole thing is far too Dharma Initiative. I don't like the modern world featuring in an ALIEN movie through the Internet.

Have to say I agree. :-\
