The promotional campaign behind the next phase of Alien films has just switched up into hyperbole mode with Alien: Covenant having today released a Weyland-Yutani Corp promotional video for the all new and improved Walter, the next phase in the highly successful line of the David series.
After receiving a rather impressive correspondent directly from Weyland-Yutani Corp – the company behind Walter and the initiative Project Prometheus we were introduced to the making of Walter and a website filled with all the background information you could possible dream of surrounding Weyland products, the company and Project Prometheus.
In the video, Meet Walter, the viewer is taken on a step by step journey on the creation of Walter (Michael Fassbender), all set to a haunting yet calming soundtrack in a futuristic laboratory before moving onto the finished product who easily integrates into his surroundings.
The official memo regarding Walter, which is accompanied by the poster below states;
From the launch video released today, you can see that the look of the new synthetic remains in tone with previous editions, yet vast improvements have been implemented across its processing core. Higher levels of human interaction, a vast array of skills and knowledge, deeper understanding of human empathy and personality levels that will make you come to question if he isn’t, in fact, human.
We found this extremely cool and we urge you to check out the website too, you’ll be impressed.
Alien: Covenant is released in UK cinemas and IMAX May 12.
Official Alien: Covenant Synopsis
“Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus – and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction.
“Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”
