     April 17, 2012


Fox has found some fun ways to show more of Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus beyond the standard trailers, clips, TV spots, and images.  A mini-game recently revealed more images of the eponymous spaceship, there was Peter Weyland’s (Guy Pearce) chilling TED Talk from the year 2023, and a quick look at the android, David 8 (Michael Fassbender).  The latest release from the viral campaign is a full, two-and-a-half minute ad for David, and it’s a perfect mixture of cool and creepy.

Hit the jump to check out the video.  The film also stars Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, Rafe Spall, Sean Harris, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize TheronPrometheus opens in 3D on June 8th.  Scott recently said that the cut you see in theaters will be the director’s cut and run a hair under two hours. [Update: We’ve added a poster ad for the David 8]

In addition, we’ve also been sent an exclusive new piece of the viral puzzle.  The code allows those skilled in the viral-decoding ways to unlock one of eight emotions for David.  I don’t know what emotion it will be, but I’m crossing my fingers for “I’m going to creep you the fuck out”-face.  Click here for more.
