PROMETHEUS (2012): Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) TEDTalk 2023 Video

Guy Pearce, TEDTalk 2023, Prometheus

Prometheus Peter Weyland TEDTalk 2023 Video. Luke Scott‘s Prometheus (2012) Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) TEDTalk 2023 video is the second piece of video advertisement for the upcoming Prometheus movie release. The first video was the
Prometheus (2012) Teaser Trailer. By the way, TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design.

About the Peter Weyland TEDTalk for 2023 written by Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof:

Screenwriter Damon Lindelof thought it would be appropriate and, well, incredibly cool to have one of the characters, Peter Weyland, articulate a couple of those ideas in a TEDTalk — a TEDTalk from the future. Consulting with one of the directors of TED, the creative team produced a vision of a talk in the year 2023, and turned that vision into a special video just for TED2012, conceived and designed by Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof and directed by Luke Scott

For those unfamiliar with who Peter Weyland is:

So that’s Peter Weyland of Weyland Corp, aka one of the two companies that joined together to eventually become Weyland-Yutani, the corporate entity that plays a huge part in the Alien series. What does he have to do with the story in Prometheus? That talk should have given you a pretty good idea; it certainly doesn’t leave much to the imagination with respect to the legend of Prometheus and this film’s story.

The Technology, Entertainment, Design website givens more information on this particular TEDTalk:

Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade.

Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilization, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, “If we can, we must.” After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where he’s heading next. Wherever that may be, we will most certainly want to follow.

Prometheus also stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael FassbenderIdris ElbaLogan Marshall-Green, Patrick WilsonRafe Spall, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Emun Elliott, Vladimir ‘Furdo’ Furdik, and James Embree.

Prometheus‘ plot synopsis: “A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”
