Ridley Scott‘s Alein: Covenant released a new promo video. It called “Meet Walter,” and it was directed by Ridley’s son Luke Scott.
This new video focuses on the creation of Michael Fassbender‘s android character Walter, which is described as follows:
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.
The video has an unsettling tone, especially with that music. When talking about the “Meet Walter” campaign, Ridley Scott said:
“Partnering with AMD, one of the world’s leading technology companies, for our film’s ‘Meet Walter’ campaign aligned perfectly with our vision of the incredible potential of AI that Michael so wonderfully brings to life through Alien: Covenant’s Walter. In AMD we have a partner at the forefront of developing and implementing artificially intelligent technologies, showcasing where the future of AI may well be heading. Bringing AMD into our longstanding collaboration with 20th Century Fox on the Alien films is inspiring and exciting.”
Alien: Covenant is set to be released on May 19th.
