The viral marketing for Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus is continuing to impress. While Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises remains in the shadows just months before release, Scott’s Prometheus has been keeping the buzz strong on the web, with various viral marketing videos. One featured Guy Pearce at a Weyland Industries conference and now this latest one features a robot named David, played by Michael Fassbender.
It’s great because Fassbender is such an expert at displaying emotions. He’d make the perfect Terminator! Anyways, the commercial plays out very much like something Apple or Windows would do today to promote the latest product and it helps you get a sense of detail. Everything in the film seems important to Mr. Scott and I like that he’s giving us these back-stories/viral videos.
Prometheus opens up in theaters on June 8th, 2012. Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Patrick Wilson also star.
