What If Steve Jobs Were a James Bond Villain?

Word is that the following video is a promo for, but does not actually appear in, Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus film, which takes place in the Alien universe but whose precise connection to the Alien franchise is not yet clear. The speaker, Peter Weyland, is presumably connected with the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, the main (human) antagonist in the Alien movies; Weyland and Yutani companies, not yet yoked by hyphens, figure in the (chronologically earlier) Alien vs. Predator movies.

At least we now know how Holmes survived the end of “The Reichenbach Fall.” He was beamed up!
