What would you all think if all the Weyland technology is stolen from the gods?
well, it certainly looks as if they're going to have to find a previously unrealised technology to get the spacetugs tramping around the galaxy ten years before 2079 or whenever Alien is set. Ridley thought it was rather cheeky to imagine technology leaping that far so soon when he was asked about it during the Blade Runner interviews so perhaps that technology might have to leap into the story from somewhere else
I think it's curious that Weyland Industries from AVP is being used as part of the viral promotion. Do they intend to use it as part of the movie's actual cannon though?
It's not form AVP. Its origin is from the FIRST Alien film directed by Ridley Scott.
In Alien, and subsequent chronological films, it's Weyland-Yutani
. In Alien vs Predator it was simply Weyland Industries
which is what the web address is in the Prometheus viral site, even though the logo on the site says Weyland Corp
, and the logos we see on the uniforms in the movie trailer say Weyland Mega-Corp
. Obviously the company name changes over time.
