Introducing David, Your 'Prometheus' Android Pal
By DAVID WEINER
April 17, 2012
Ridley Scott's hugely anticipated Alien prequel, Prometheus, is just two months away, and the film's clever viral campaign continues with the introduction of David 8 – the film's resident android, played by Michael Fassbender – in an advertisement from the fictitious Weyland Corporation that is surely a portent of things to come.
In the grand tradition of Ash (played by Ian Holm), Bishop (played by Lance Henriksen) and Annalee Call (Winona Ryder), David 8 is "the next generation Weyland robot," and he explains just what he is capable of in the faux advertisement, courtesy of Mashable. Creepy and cool…
Prometheus stars Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Guy Pearce in a story of "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. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race."
Prometheus hits theaters on June 8.
