Prometheus: Weyland TED Talk 2023

A fictional speech by Weyland Corporations founder Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) takes place at a futuristic vision of a TED conference, an annual technology and forum in the year 2023 serves as a viral video to promote the upcoming Alien prequel, Prometheus.  In the speech from the near future Weyland tells of how Prometheus brought fire, technology and innovation to man and his intentions to bring humanoid androids to man in the near future.  This video takes place over 60 years before the events of Prometheus (whatever the movie is actually about since it is said to not include the xenomorph alien from the original movie which Ridley Scott directed over 40 years ago) and long before Ellen Ripley and her crew encounter the alien while return home to Earth from a mining expedition for Weyland Corporation.
