- "BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE. "
- ―Company Slogan
Weyland Industries was a British industrial business that existed in the twenty-first century. Along with the Japanese Yutani Corporation, it was one of the antecedents to the Weyland-Yutani conglomerate. The eponymous Charles Bishop Weyland was the chairman of Weyland Industries during the early 21st Century.
Weyland Industries' logo and slogan — "Building a Better Future" — are nods to the Weyland-Yutani logo and slogan — "Building Better Worlds" — established in Aliens.
According to the Alien vs. Predator novel from author Marc Cerasini, Weyland Industries were worth $375 billion, and, by 2020, were expected to be the first to build a base on Earth's satellite, the Moon.
Merger and FutureEdit
In 2030, Weyland Industries was headed by a man known only as Mr. Weyland. At this time, Weyland Industries bought out Borgia Industries in a hostile takeover following the death of the latter's senior directors. Sometime after this, Weyland Industries would also acquire the Yutani Corporation, thus forming the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.
- Weyland Corp and its founder Peter Weyland from Prometheus appear to contradict the Weyland Industries origin portrayed in Alien vs. Predator. When Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof pointed this out to director Ridley Scott during the film's production, Scott made it clear that he had no intention of following the timeline laid out in the Alien vs. Predator films. It remains to be seen if this is an official retcon of events.
- In Jon Spaihts' original script for Prometheus, titled Alien: Engineers, Weyland Corp is known as Weyland Industries.
