A mock commercial set in the future world of Alien: Covenant has been released and it showcases Michael Fassbender as the latest must-have product from the fine folks at Weyland-Yutani, a new synthetic humanoid model named “Walter.” Fassbender played a similar-looking android named “David” in Prometheus and will play both characters in Alien: Covenant. The short was conceived by Ridley Scott and 3AM, and directed by Luke Scott, and is both a beautiful and unsettling look at our own probable future. You have an opportunity to “reserve” your own Walter on the mock corporate website.
Introducing Walter, the latest synthetic by Weyland-Yutani. Created to serve. Intelligence powered by AMD, Ryzen and Radeon. Walter is the world’s most advanced synthetic companion, designed to help you achieve a better human experience. Each model is individually calibrated to serve its owner’s unique set of needs and preferences.
Alien: Covenant was written by John Logan (Spectre). Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir and Carmen Ejogo star.
The movie is slated for release on May 19, 2017.
