PROMETHEUS (2012): Pre-Prequel Video: Weyland Scientist Training

Prometheus Pre Prequel

Prometheus Pre-Prequel Video. Tom Small‘s Prometheus pre-prequel video involving Weyland Industries scientist training is hilarious. When I viewed Prometheus, a myriad of questions and plot holes screamed out as the film progressed, some of which involved the scientists in the film. I discussed some of their extremely questionable behavior along with my thoughts on other aspects of the film in the Prometheus (2012) Film Review.

The comedy organization Barely Political took notice of the dubious decision making of the scientists as well and put together a funny video (it was written by Todd Womack, Mark Douglas, and Bryan Olsen) detailing the most egregious actions by the Weyland Industries scientists. It basically shows how moronic and irresponsible they were. The video involves the Weyland Industries scientists being trained for their trip and illuminates why they did what they did in Prometheus.

Watch the Prometheus pre-prequel video and leave your thoughts on it below in the comments section. For more Prometheus photos, videos, and information, visit our Prometheus Page, subscribe to us by Email, follow us on Twitter or on Facebook.

  • ROFL, I haven’t seen the movie, but these apply to all alien encounters. Where would horror movies be without dumb people?

  • They would be Blade Runner, The Thing, Aliens….

  • Rollo, I agree on Blade Runner. Thing original yes. Aliens had some dumb people in there, but Weaver made up for it.

  • You’re right about Aliens. Forgot about Hudson and Berk.
