Prometheus: Weyland Industries Launches Project Genesis

by Dan Koelsch

Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel Prometheus opens in theaters today, so now the viral campaign must come to a close. Weyland Industries has begun Project Genesis to mark a final viral event.

A few weeks ago, we got a video message that Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (played by Noomi Rapace) makes for Weyland Industries founder Peter Weyland. In it, she pleads with him to commission an expedition that we know will become the plot for Prometheus. Apparently, that video message worked, since now she is working for the company. Below is the website’s vague description of Project Genesis.

Weyland Industries has contracted Dr. Elizabeth Shaw to help further her groundbreaking research on anthropological traces of a shared human origin. This stage of research requires outside agents to assist in the search for artifacts and sites from a variety of cultures that support her hypothesis.

As FirstShowing reports, the global search has been completed, with all 30 locations unlocked. The page has a message that leads to a zip file of Dr. Shaw’s research dossier. There are eight pages of notes on ancient artifacts and five memos that talk about Project Genesis and the build up to the expedition that will be Project Prometheus. Take a look below.

Be sure to check out the Project Prometheus website for more goodies, such as the Employee ID Creator (like mine below) and Crew Bios.
