Go watch this clip. It’s really a creative and terrific use of marketing for Prometheus. Explains the title, some character motivation, sets it in a world we understand.
Wow. Amps up anticipation for this movie big time.
Prometheus has released a canny piece of viral marketing, in which Guy Pearce’s character Peter Weyland gives a TED talk (a non-profit organisation dedicated to the sharing of ideas) on artificial intelligence…

ONE. FRIGGING DAY. TOO LATE.
IT’S STANDING RIGHT THERE, RUN!

FUUUCKKK THAT, MAN I mean I get it about the kids thing BUT DON’T LET YOUR WIFE TELL YOU TO NOT HANG FACEHUGGER PICTURES…
I’m going to go out on a limb here, but:
You’re not married, are you?
No, but if I was, I’d never let a woman boss me around especially when it comes to pictures on the wall. Women are usually wrong anyway especially when it comes to telling men what not to do.
Well now isn’t that a delight? Hard to believe a woman hasn’t scooped you up yet.
And really, my point wasn’t about my wife bossing me around. It was about the fact that the Alien movies aren’t her cup of tea, and it would be a bit rude and overbearing of me - as her life partner - to insist that such artwork be prominently displayed in the living room where we welcome saintly grandparents, our kids’ principal, and the local vicar.
It’s not terribly hard to find compromises in a marriage when you’ve got a dynamite gal like I do.
But I’m sure that’s probably the point you were making in some kind of ironic way.
