Last Wednesday, Guy Perice’s appearance in the 2023 TED Talk viral video gave us a brief three minute glimpse of what we might expect to see from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, while also hinting at a connection between the Replicants of Blade Runner and the Androids in Alien. Today the fictional Weyland Industries, has launched it’s own website, which contains the video and several links which remain locked for now. Presumably the various sections will open at regular intervals leading up to the release date of the film, like some sort of sci-fi advent calendar.

A similar method of viral marketing was used successfully by the creators of Lost, who set up fictional websites for the Hanso Foundation and Dharma Initiative. It’s not surprising when you consider that, Lost creator, Damon Lindelof, is the co-writer of Prometheus.

FirstShowing reported the scoop, found by Twitter follower @MOVIELORD101, about some hidden high resolution image, revealing what appears to be a three dimensional model of a planetary system. I’ve scanned all over the image to see if I can find any more clues as to what it may mean, but nothing really jumps out at me. Although I would say that the structure, on which it appears, seems kind of like a deep space hibernation device for an Alien of the Space Jokey variety.

Here is the latest official trailer.
