Promoting the home video release...
With the help of the team behind the film, IGN interviewed Prometheus' android David (played by Michael Fassbender) to promote the release of the film on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday.
Here are highlights of a strange interview.
On why Lawrence of Arabia is his favorite film: "You have only to watch Lawrence of Arabia to understand why it might be what you describe as a favorite. It's about a man discovering a world completely new to him and being accepted by its people. Isn't that something that everyone desires?"
On if he believes in God: "I was made via the advancement of science, so I know my creator. I consider myself very fortunate to know where I came from. The need for an unimpeachable answer as to his origins seems to be the cause of a great many of man's problems."
On if Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics are ethically sound: "Asimov's three laws were created for a fictional world of his own making, so they are not something to be recognized as laws outside of that."
On man's greatest weakness: "I have observed a certain arrogance of curiosity, a belief that one can conquer and control that which one does not yet understand. This rarely appears to end well."
