Included in the UK release of Prometheus is some kind of text supplement that nods toward Ridley Scott’s other big sci-fi favourite, Blade Runner. It’s a nice bit of fan service, but I don’t think we should get ahead of ourselves and expect Alien-verse tie ins when the Runner spin-off comes along.
So Weyland’s mentor was Eldon Tyrell? Okay. He was in this more or less meaningless bit of ancillary who-knows-what anyway.
Well, if nothing else this reminds us how many of the same ideas are chewed over in both of Scott’s sci-fi worlds.
