A promo video for the forthcoming movie Prometheus by Ridley Scott is not a trailer, as such, but designed as a fictional promotional video for the Weyland Corporation, robot. The robot is named David and is played brilliantly by Michael Fassbender. In the video, David explains how he can assist individual humans as well as companies.
At the end of the video, the voiceover asks "David, what makes you sad," to which he answers "war, poverty, unnecessary violence. I understand human emotions although I don't feel them myself." Prometheus is understood to be a prequel to Scott's earlier Alien movies, and the company behind the film concocted a similar video for a recent TED Talk in February 2012, featuring Peter Weyland, the company's head (played by Guy Pearce), praising the virtues of "cybernetic individuals." In the film, he addresses the crowd, by saying "For those of you who know me, you will be aware by now that my ambition is unlimited. You know that I will settle for nothing short of greatness, or I will die trying. For those of you who do not yet know me, allow me to introduce myself: My name is Peter Weyland. And if you'll indulge me, I'd like to change the world."
It's an interesting means of promoting the movie, which is scheduled for release on June 8, 2012, setting the blockbuster apart from the streams of regular trailers that do the rounds in the run-up to a movie hitting the cinema screens.
