As part of a advertising campaign for the Alien prequel-ish of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus the studio has produced this mock video advert for the android that appears in the film.
The film follows the crew of the spaceship Prometheus as they explore an advanced alien civilization while searching for the origins of humanity. The film promises to be very gritty with Ridley saying it might follow Alien with a ‘R’ rating.
20th Century Fox CEO Tom Rothman has confirmed it will be Ridley’s vision saying, “if that means that the film is R, then it’ll be an R. If it’s PG-13, then it’ll be a PG-13, but it will not be compromised”.
The ad shows off Weyland’s Robot David, played by Michael Fassbender, who is the maintenance man and butler on the ship Prometheus. It is either creepy or amusing depending on our mind frame. I know someone called David and it is just like him!
