PROMETHEUS – What Is 10.11.12?
Roger Ebert called PROMETHEUS, “a magnificent science-fiction film, all the more intriguing because it raises questions about the origin of human life and doesn’t have the answers. It’s in the classic tradition of golden age sci-fi, echoing Scott’s ALIEN.” With an estimated weekend haul of $50 million at the box office, the marketing campaign shows no signs of stopping – especially the viral one.
Just as mysterious as PROMETHEUS itself, here comes the next stage of 20th Century Fox’s elaborate scavenger hunt. Those who stayed until the end of the credits caught a date – 10.11.12 – and a link to the Weyland Industries timeline. When you scroll down to that date, it reads:
Weyland Corporation is recognized as a legal entity and corporation under United States law and receives their Certificate of Incorporation from the Companies House in the United Kingdom. Due to the combined value of Sir Peter Weyland’s various patents and patent-pendings, the company incorporates with a higher fair market valuation than any other company in history.
OCTOBER 11, 2012
There’s a small flag to click on that links you to – http://www.whatis101112.com/ – where you’ll find a new video and book. Each “stage” will be revealed through the various modules.
Still with me? Then we have the book.
According to Wikipedia:
Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None (also translated as Thus Spake Zarathustra; German: Also sprach Zarathustra: Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen) is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885. Much of the work deals with ideas such as the “eternal recurrence of the same”, the parable on the “death of God”, and the “prophecy” of the Übermensch, which were first introduced in The Gay Science. The original text contains a great deal of word-play.
So what’s all this mean and, more importantly, what will be revealed on October 11th? Most likely the release of the BLU & DVD, which is already available for pre-order over on Amazon. I’m hoping for the title or a teaser poster for the next film. It could happen, right?
PROMETHEUS is in theatres now.
