Another chapter of a viral campaign that has included staging a TED talk of the future and stuffing Michael Fassbender in a dry cleaning bag, here’s a Prometheus promo in which Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Elizabeth Shaw beseeches Peter Weyland to fund an outer space venture that, thanks to the trailers, we now know leads to a whole fucking lot of screaming.
With just Rapace’s monologue and some overlaid scanning graphics, this video is pretty tame compared to all the super-intense previews we’ve seen in the past, but if you add your own soundtrack of constant panicked bellowing, it does make it a little more intense, so keep that option open.
Finally, to know the experience of checking out Noomi Rapace while being a Terminator.
Not to be outdone by the competitions’ recent outpourings of trailers for trailers, The Dark Knight Rises is now offering up a preview of individual frames from its final trailer, which debuts this Friday on prints of The Avengers. It’s all the action of the trailer, none of the bothersome persistence of vision! Of course, this being a Batman viral campaign, the WB marketing team isn’t just going to reveal these images as readily as they reveal that the anonymous vigilante known as The Batman is, in fact, muscular. You’re going to have to work for these frames. And by work, I mean the modern-day man’s work of going outside and taking a cell phone photo.
TheDarkKnightRises.com has a list of locations worldwide where, if you venture to look around, you will apparently see something resembling the crude bat symbol above (via). If you or someone else takes a photo of said graffiti–making sure that “location services” or “store location” or whatever is enabled on your camera device–and tweet/email it to #tdkr07202012 or tdkr07202012[at]gothampolicedepartment.com, a corresponding frame from the new trailer will be revealed here. If we, as a Batman-loving community of citizens with location-recording photographic devices unlock them all, presumably we’ll get the trailer early. Or, if nothing else, someone will cobble the frames into an animated gif, and that will function as a silent trailer over which we can imagine our own ideal Bane-mumbles and Bat-growls.
Or maybe the photos will together form a collage depicting a female Riddler, and you’ll all finally say, “Wow, I Watch Stuff was right all along: There IS a LadyRiddler. And she’s BEAUTIFUL.” Probably just a trailer, though.
Those of you familiar with the Alien franchise will likely recognize the name “Weyland-Yutani.” Set up in the first film through logo only and implicitly referred to as “the company,” and later fleshed out some by Paul Reiser and co., Weyland-Yutani played the Alien series’ stock role as greedy corporate entity that values profit and alien egg acquisition over human life. (Reiser is the 1%, occupy planetoid LV-426, etc.) In Ridley Scott’s Alien sort-of-prequel, Prometheus, Guy Pearce plays Peter Weyland, head of a pre-Yutani-merger Weyland Corporation. So, as a viral stunt, here’s Pearce giving an in-character TED talk from the future, telling the titular story of Prometheus and describing his ambitions to create synthetic life. Compared to the usual TED talk, it comes across as pretty ominous. Weyland probably should have kept it a bit lighter by not saying man had become God, and maybe by wearing some casual jeans.
