Alien Prequel "Prometheus" TED Talk Trailer with Guy Pearce

Ridley Scott created this teaser trailer for his upcoming Alien prequel, Prometheus, which is due in theaters in early June. We understand that this is not actually a clip from the movie itself, but a kind of backgrounder to the movie. It features Guy Pearce as "Ted Weyland," CEO of the fictional Weyland Corporation that was responsible for the disastrous mission to the alien spaceship in Alien. It's chilling and fascinating, with Weyland boasting of the glorious future of mankind that Weyland Corp. is designing. Very much a tale of that "pride goeth before a fall," or what the Greeks called hubris, that overreaching pride that calls forth Nemesis... you just know it's not going to end well.

The setting here is a TED Talk in the year 2023. Enjoy...

March 22 Update: We've posted the new Prometheus trailer here
