Prometheus -TED Talk by Peter Weyland in 2023

Released today was a TED talk from the future by Guy Pierce in character as Peter Weyland (CEO of Weyland Industries) as envisioned by Ridley Scott. It is an intriguing look into what may lie ahead, as well as important back story into the epic mythology explored in Scott's new film, Prometheus. 


Prometheus opens worldwide in 3D on June 8th.


Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade. Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilisation, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, “If we can, we must.” After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where he’s heading next. Wherever that may be, we will most certainly want to follow.
