TED Talk from the future – as envisioned by Prometheus director Ridley Scott
“If you will indulge me…I’d like to change the world.”
In the year 2023 Peter Weyland will make a speech in Tokyo about how humanity has become the new gods, with the power to create artificial life that looks like a human. This viral marketing campaign is a smart choice by Fox, and as a fan of the Alien franchise, I could watch this over and over again.
Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe.
