New Prometheus Viral Vid and EW Movie Images

Here’s some Prometheus news I need to get caught up on from the last week and a half.

The first bit of news comes in the form of a new viral video focusing on the character of Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace). There are a couple of interesting things about this viral vid. Unlike the TED Talk and David virals, this one seems to tie in directly with the film as a prelude of sorts. Another point of interest: The “Quiet Eye” tech is created by Yutani– the business Weyland Industries eventually merges with to become The Weyland-Yutani Corp from the Alien films.

And, I’m just throwing this out there, but this Quiet Eye tech slightly feels a bit like the Voight-Kampff machine found in Blade Runner (also directed by Ridley Scott). It is most likely that this is a pure coincidence but maybe there is more to this viral than appears.

Or maybe that’s just the geek in me talking.

The last bit of news I wanted to catch you all up on was that Entertainment Weekly ran a bunch of new images for the film in their May 11th issue. You can find all of those images after the jump.

One Response to New Prometheus Viral Vid and EW Movie Images

  1. Is it just a coincidence that Elizabeth Shaw was a companion to the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee)? Hmmm…….
