I love the fact that this latest “Prometheus” viral video plays on the whole “synthetic guy among the crew goes crazy” vibe that the “Alien” franchise is known for, though the synthetic guy proved his mettle in the second movie, to be fair. Here’s Michael Fassbender, playing the latest and greatest creation of Weyland Industries, celebrating his birthday. I bet he can blow out a ton of candles. Probably.
A team of scientists and explorers are on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.
Starring Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Ben Foster, Logan Marshall-Green, Kate Dickie, and Sean Harris.
Ridley Scott and company goes explorin’ June 8, 2012.
