SLOGAN: “Building Better Worlds”
IN THE MOVIE: Decades after the events of Prometheus, Weyland Industries merged and turned into a larger and more powerful conglomerate called Weyland-Utani (referred to as “the Company” in the first Alien movie and getting a larger — and more sinister presence — in later installments).
BAD-CORPORATE-CITIZEN RATING, ON A SCALE OF 1 to 10: (10) Looking to satisfy a growing list of clients searching for the latest in military-grade arms, Weyland-Utani has moved aggressively to discover — and weaponize — alien lifeforms. Too bad their efforts never seem to work as planned.
