Damon Lindelof Explains The One Remaining Unseen Prometheus Viral

There have been three Prometheus viral clips unveiled to date: Peter Weyland’s TED Talk, the David 8 commercial and an Elizabeth Shaw “scanner” piece called The Quiet Eye, each of them successfully enigmatic and, to lesser or greater degrees, atmospheric and compelling.

But there’s a fourth, on the shelf for now, and in an interview with Slashgear, Damon Lindelof has explained what it entails. This will make more sense to those who have already seen the movie.

There’s a message in the movie that they’re transmitting to the engineers, with the girl playing the violin, and David and Holloway have the scene where they haven’t responded to the message. That message is another piece of viral which we may or may not release.

It’s hard to explain it any better than that, but when you see the film, you’ll get it – or, in fact, if the viral is actually released. This seems possible, as Scott himself notes:

We may use it in the US next week. They don’t open for a week.

Scott also revealed a brilliant bit of trivia regarding one of the already released promos. As he says, the footage in the Shaw viral was actually shot as part of Noomi Rapace’s screen test. In order to turn that material into a marketing clip, Johnny Hardstaff, director of the David 8 promo, added the various onscreen graphics and captions. An impressively economic and resourceful piece of work.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll have spent the week reading interviews with Lindelof and Scott and I don’t think they’re anywhere nearly done yet.

Indeed, we’ve got a good amount of coverage from our Prometheus interviews to still run. Keep ’em peeled.
