We've all seen product placement on TV, or movies like Tower Heist that insert real-world newspeople like Matt Lauer covering the Thanksgiving Day Parade in order to lend it some verisimilitude. An interesting twist on these ideas is a scene from Ridley Scott's forthcoming Prometheus sci-fi flick, which depicts a TED Talk—from the year 2023:
We're digging the drone cameras. And we're also glad that TED Talks are still going strong in Scott's vision of the future, though it seems clear this Peter Weyland character is up to no good.
Prometheus, by the way, is a sort of prequel to the Alien franchise, inhabiting that series' universe, that will reportedly explain how some of the events depicted in the first Alien movie came to pass (namely, the discovery of that giant "Space Jockey" dude up top).
You could argue that Scott's Blade Runner universe is more advanced than the Alien/Prometheus universe. Blade Runner was set in 2019 and they already had Replicants running around. The TED Talk depicted above is set in 2023, four years later, and the speaker mentions they haven't even gotten around to making 'em yet. Weyland puts the "can't" in Replicant.
