Even though the trailers for Ridley Scott's Alien forerunner have been uniformly terrific, the viral videos are, truly, what's been giving us the most new information. And this latest one—which shows Dr. Elizabeth Shaw's yearning for scientific adventure—is no different.

Fans of the Alien saga have known that the company that owned the Nostromo and then, when it fell afoul of the acid-for-blood beastie, tasked the Sulaco to investigate the disappearances on LV-426 was called Weyland-Yutani. But everything we've seen only refers to the Weyland Corporation ... until now.

Judging by some of the fleeting on-screen identifiers, Noomi Rapace's Dr. Shaw is in the employ of the Yutani company. Either that, or Yutani is the company that makes the video-chat diagnostic-y software she uses for the call. Regardless, it's another piece of the puzzle that's fallen into place before Prometheus' June 8 opening.

Of course, there are a thousand other pieces to go.
