Mind blowing...
24 July 2019 | by tchevrierdechoudensSee all my reviews

As a start it must be said that labeling this as a "TED talk" would be a complete joke.

This is what TED talks will never be. Epic, grandiose and strong. Guy Pierce's acting is absolutely stellar here and he delivers an incredible speech that perfectly opens up the big questions raised in Prometheus and Covenant.

I hope we will get more insight on Peter Weyland's life in future films. Who was he and what drove him to that planet in Prometheus?
