WATCH THE PETER WEYLAND 2023 TED TALK

Considered a seminal moment in the career of our founder Peter Weyland, this 2023 TED Talk launched Weyland Corp into the international spotlight.

In honor of our 75th year, Weyland Corp is planning to offer a new round of investment soon. Interested parties can expect to find out more within the next few days.

#weylandinvestors
Also confirms that they are ignoring the AvP storylines completely.

Very Alien'ish type of think to do, if you know what I mean. Just simply epic.

I wonder if we get any other promos like this one, and what they will be. Maybe just shorts showing the creation and stages of Weyland Corporation?

like it, fits the world of the first three films and adds/has its own style, it also makes the weyland company much more sinister!

2023? I can't wait to get my Halley Berry sex robot via FedEx overnight. The date does sound kinda close. I mean, the U.S. is probably still going to be in Afghanistan & maybe Iran. The world realy looks meh, bla right now. If this date is in the movie, then lets see how it works.

The date of the film is set approximately 50 years after that video, so around 2073.

Cool. Guy Pearce's Weyland character is much more in-line with the original films (are W-Y evil or not ambiguity) than the lacklustre Weyland that was in AvP. Peter Weyland makes a far more interesting progenitor to the W-Y mega corp than Charles Bishop Weyland. Nothing against Lance of course. He did the best with the material that was given him.

I love the way its anchored to reality. Just like the original movies, its great to see they are keeping it so grounded and believable.

I cant believe Pearce is only in the movie for 1 minute. lol.

Yeah, I think that's quite brilliantly done.

Very impressive! Hype is definitely building!

...an issue I have with this, however:

-The gimmicky hover-cameras! Ew! That, to me, doesn't at all jive with the style and feel of the established "Alien" tech. It feels very alien to the Alien franchise, just as Alien: Resurrection lacked that "Alien" alien feel.
So just a small complaint from an otherwise fantastic video!
