How did they make clips of the movie Prometheus play in the background?

This is awesome, anyone know how they did this?

Just did a quick view source, and it looks like they're using the <video> tag with a z-index to set it into the background.

It's pretty cool, right? Thanks for the reply Alan. I really appreciate it. I thought it was JavaScript or something else.

You'd almost definitely have to get some JavaScript in there to get it working right. You'd want to check out the HTML5 video api to really get it working right.
