Prometheus’s Peter Weyland’s Ted Talk

— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony

It was recently revealed that Guy Pearce will portray Weyland Crop’s Peter Weyland in the upcoming Prometheus film, and it raised the eyebrows of many fans of the Alien franchise who recognized the Weyland name. I just found out that there’s an entire faux website devoted to the fictional company with photo’s of Pearce and even a keynote video discussing the business. Let’s take a look at some of the goods:

Via: Weyland Industries

Via: Dark Horizons

Along with the video is a bit of a biography on the character known as Peter Weyland:


Sir Peter Weyland was born in Mumbai, India at the turn of the Millennium. The progeny of two brilliant parents; His mother, an Oxford Educated Professor of Comparative Mythology, his father, a self-taught software Engineer, it was clear from an early age that Sir Peter’s capabilities would only be eclipsed by his ambition to realize them. By the age of fourteen, he had already registered a dozen patents in a wide range of fields from biotech to robotics, but it would be his dynamic breakthroughs in generating synthetic atmosphere above the polar ice cap that gained him worldwide recognition and spawned an empire.

In less than a decade, Weyland Corporation became a worldwide leader in emerging technologies and launched the first privatized industrial mission to leave the planet Earth. “There are other worlds than this one,” Sir Peter boldly declared, “And if there is no air to breathe, we will simply have to make it.”

I’m a little late with the news but somehow it still has impact. There are a few photos on the site for those interested in perusing the back story and taking the time to get to know the what Weyland is all about. I know I will just to indulge in their futuristic interpretation of web design.
