How many of you are dressing up tonight as characters from the film? Anyone going asthe Deacon?
Even though it has been a while since we last posted, and even though the new tagline for the film is Questions Will Be Answered, there are still a couple of unanswered questions in regards to the viral:
What is this CLASSIFIED page on ProjectPrometheus that we are still missing? A mishap on behalf of Weyland (as there are quite a few pages not linked there)…
The third video clip on the Project Prometheus Careers page - what’s up with that? We all thought it was going to be released in anticipation of 10.11.12., at least, as you will read below, before that plan got shelved…
This was from Fast Co.Create’s profile of the entire campaign (our recaps of which are under the Past Investment Opportunities tag) back when the movie came out. Now, what happened was, when the US Blu-ray/DVD release of the film was originally planned for 10.11.12. - October 11, 2012 by the American dating system, when Weyland Corp was incorporated, everything was building up perfectly to that point, until Fox pushed the release date to October 9, deactivating the What is 10.11.12. site (which did kind-of act as a glorified promo for the Blu-ray special features), and replaced it with this. Now, I personally really don’t think what Ignition meant by the “something new [that] happens” was just the original Blu-ray release date. The folks at Prometheus-Movie.com say that there is something definitely happening on November 10, 2012, what Europeans consider to be 10.11.12., but only time will tell what…
So, what do you think of all this? Did Weyland abandon the viral ship or is there something else afoot? Let us know…also we have a new Google+ page so add us to your circles!
First off, Happy Independence Day to all of you followers in the US!
So, as you may have noticed, I haven’t posted for a while. It has become quite quiet with news, apart from the fact that SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON is NEXT WEEK, so Investors should keep tabs on http://www.projectprometheus.com/sdcc/ over the next few days for more info about what exactly Weyland Corp are planning to do there.
But first, I would like to present a FULL RECAP of the viral campaign for Prometheus. As you can see, it isn’t over yet, and will probably carry on into the DVD/Blu-ray release, and also potential sequels…
So, the first half of the PROMETHEUS viral campaign (codenamed on the Weyland Corp website as WCCF-73: MODULE A, standing for Weyland Corporate Communication Frequency - 2073), as of last night, was completed, so I thought it would be convenient to do a recap of the events so far…
