Fox has sent over a brand new extended commercial for Weyland Corporation’s David 8, the synthetic human to be found in Prometheus. Played by Michael Fassbender, he will be the the forerunner to such great characters as Ian Holm’s Ash and Lance Henriksen’s Bishop from Alien and Aliens respectively. Parts of this ad were previously seen in the 30-second spot released in March, but this version goes for over two-and-a-half minutes.
Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. It stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron.
