The highlight of TED thus far appears to be a promo piece for Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s quasi-prequel to Alien that is coming out later this year. The promo film was presented as a TED Talk from 2023, it stars Guy Pearce (Memento) and is written by “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof.

I’m proud of the work I did on Watchmen, but it’s surrounded by such a toxic cloud of memories. I wish I didn’t have to go through them. I don’t even have a copy of the book in the house.”
