Michael Fassbender in a 'Prometheus' Viral Ad for David the Android
What is it about robots that makes them so robotic? Since the viral campaign for The Dark Knight Rises has been pretty much non-existent, a true disappointment after the amazing run leading up to The Dark Knight, it seems like the viral to beat this year is for Ridley Scott's anticipated return to sci-fi with Prometheus. From the Weyland Corporation's TED talk from the future featuring Guy Pearce as the company's founder and a short promo for the android David featuring Michael Fassbender, it's been a fun ride so far. Now we have a longer, somewhat creepy, viral ad for Fassbender's android character which you can see below!
Prometheus is directed by legendary Oscar nominated filmmaker Ridley Scott, who started it all with Alien and Blade Runner, also directing Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Kingdom of Heaven, American Gangster, Body of Lies and Robin Hood most recently. The screenplay was originally written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour), then updated by Damon Lindelof of "Lost" and Cowboys & Aliens, Star Trek 2. Fox has Prometheus set to hit theaters in 3D starting June 8th this summer. Visit Weyland Corp.
