TED2012, this year's conference for the non-profit organization dedicated to "Ideas Worth Spreading", had a special guest -- from the future. Guy Pearce appeared in a special video from "TED2023" as his character from Prometheus, the industrialist Peter Weyland, a name familiar to fans of the Alien mythos. In the video, a few hints are dropped as to the backstory of the film, due out on June 8th. Check it out after the jump.
According to a press release that just went out, the above short video (found on The Hollywood Reporter), "was conceived and designed by Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof, directed by Luke Scott and created exclusively for the TED2012 audience." Here's the synopsis for Prometheus: "A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Idris Elba star in Prometheus, which was originally conceived as a prequel to Scott's 1979 classic Alien."
