    Too bad there wasn’t a more direct reference to some of Cecil Rhodes’ quotes such as annexing the planets or easily obtaining raw materials by exploiting cheap (i.e.- slave) labor. The former could relate directly to Weyland’s ambition (avarice?), and the latter could lend itself well to the irony of an exomorphic species utilizing *human* as a combination of cheap labor and raw materials. :-)

    Question :
    Whenever you’re playing god’s role, Mr Weyland…
    What or who is playing the devil’s one ?

    Can’t stop, whatching over and over. Solid and very strong fiction talk.

    Not round red carpet. Very egocentric gummy guy.
    It is not TED. Perhaps a 2023 Super Bowl adverts

    This talk is not in the movie. I wish it was as it is a great. It is just part of the [viral] promotion for the movie. Guy Pearce will only be in the movie for about a minute. In the talk he indicates that they are three months into the year 2023. However the Weyland Industries website indicates that this speech was given on Feb 27th 2023.

    will this be in the movie as well, or is this just a promo teaser that is considered canon?

  • Emilio Torres García commented on Mar 3 2012

    Interesting. He is trying to sell the general population the idea of artificial beings by appealing to humanity’s collective ego.

    I have to say though, when they showed this one at TED it did not have a title and you had no idea what it was going to be about. That made the experience awesome, if you’re gonna show this to a friend, just start it up without telling them what the plot is :-) This movie might suck ass, I don’t care, it’s still a perfect trailer.

    Nicely done. I love how this was all presented. Looking ever-so-forward to the film.

  • Irina Flowers commented on Mar 2 2012

    Humanity had always had selected few to drive the vehicle of progress forward. The rest performed the tasks of breathing, multiplying and serving those in power.

    That was rather good, especially the chilling sign off line. Those who consider themselves so jaded as to find this boring, do stop being so po-faced and shut up! It’s only a little bit of fun, lighten up a little.
