A new viral marketing campaign for Prometheus has been released.

Featuring Michael Fassbender as David, the new robert (or artificial lifeform – a term preferred by Bishop in Aliens), it gives the audience insight into how David may behave in Prometheus.

Performing David as slightly alienated and odd but completely obedient, the line “I can carry out directives that my human counterparts might find distressing or unethical” certainly brings into question where David’s loyalties in Prometheus may lie.

Will he be unhinged and “twitchy” like Ash in Ridley Scott’s Alien, or can we expect David to behave more like Bishop in James Cameron’s Aliens?
