PROMETHEUS Deleted Scenes Total Nearly 40 Minutes Of Additional Footage

What scenes were missing from Prometheus? Director Ridley Scott stated that the Blu-ray release of his quasi-Alien prequel film will indeed feature an extended cut but will it answer any of those pesky continuity questions?

Prometheus Bluray
Compiling the running time of all 14 deleted scenes, we have nearly 40 minutes of material that was cut from the theatrical release. In addition to that, there will be a Director's Cut included on the release (or maybe separately) which could add even more additional material.

Prometheus is expected to be released on Blu-ray/DVD this October.

Prometheus is an American science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron. The plot follows the crew of the spaceship Prometheus in the year 2085, as they explore an advanced alien civilization in search of the origins of humanity.

Conceived as a prequel to Scott's 1979 science fiction horror film Alien, rewrites of Spaihts' script by Lindelof developed a separate story that precedes the events of Alien, but which is not directly connected to the films in the Alien franchise. According to Scott, though the film shares "strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak", and takes place in the same universe, Prometheus will explore its own mythology and ideas. Principal photography began in March 2011, with filming taking place in England, Iceland, and Spain. Prometheus is scheduled for release between May 30 and June 8, 2012 in various territories through 20th Century Fox.

Running Time: 2 hrs 4 min
Release Date: 8 June 2012 (USA)
MPAA Rating: Rated R for sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language
Starring: Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and Patrick Wilson
Directed by: Ridley Scott
Written by: Jon Spaihts, Damon Lindelof

Blu-ray will be the first time I watch this. Even more of a reason, now.
SimyJo - 8/15/2012, 7:53 AM
Yup, me too, really glad I waited.
ATrueHero1987 - 8/15/2012, 7:53 AM
Well, damn!
TheGambitFreak - 8/15/2012, 7:56 AM
Watch it answer every [frick]ing question.

SimyJo - 8/15/2012, 7:58 AM
Decent length deleted scenes too!, not just sub-minute minor additions but whole scenes! - Can't wait for the director's cut to add even more.

And yes, It could be used as an opportunity to address some of the continuity errors levelled at it by the critics.
AlexDeLarge87 - 8/15/2012, 7:59 AM
^ Second that
AlexDeLarge87 - 8/15/2012, 8:00 AM
Second what BattlinMurdock said.
SimyJo - 8/15/2012, 8:01 AM
OMG!, nude Charlize Theron push-ups and aerobics scene on the directors cut! - I'm so getting this!.
hellfire - 8/15/2012, 8:01 AM
I know people panned it especially with... frick it if you haven't seen it I can't say.. but any way I really enjoyed it and will be picking it up.

AlexDeLarge87 - 8/15/2012, 8:02 AM
directors cut is definitely needed.
hellfire - 8/15/2012, 8:03 AM
Directors cut not in 3D :(
Niklander - 8/15/2012, 8:13 AM
Sweet I know what I will be buying but shit why FOX do this yourselves you had a great movie a great director and you [frick]ed it up just like Highlander 2
Maximus101 - 8/15/2012, 8:34 AM
As if they cut out that much, I'm definetly buying the directors cut cause this was one of my favorite movies of this year.
TheManWithBigEars - 8/15/2012, 8:34 AM
The film was a pretentious miss, wasted my money going 2 the cinema 4 this... If these scenes make it a better film I might b interested...
pepe - 8/15/2012, 8:39 AM
Finaly... 40 minutes more of disapointments...!
SimyJo - 8/15/2012, 8:42 AM
...or 40 mins of improvements - too early to tell.
Like anything, wait for the reviews.
SimyJo - 8/15/2012, 8:48 AM
Looking at the Scott interview linked it sounds like 20 odd mins on the film and 20 on the menu's extras - totalling 40 mins. NOT 40 mins on the film. I can't see something on a seamless branching Director's Cut over the extended version.... or is it the same thing?, maybe someone can clarify.
Danbojohnj - 8/15/2012, 8:57 AM
Great news
bobevanz - 8/15/2012, 9:35 AM
The last scene is paradise? we get to see where they ended up! Boo yah
Bane2099 - 8/15/2012, 10:18 AM
I hope we get a Directors Cut with all these deleted scenes put back in the film, it bugs me sometimes to watch a movie and have to go back and watch the deleted scenes in special features seperately...specially if some of the deleted scenes are awesome and shouldve stayed in the film.

@Splenda - hope it doesn't, actually.
Starlight - 8/15/2012, 10:47 AM
40 MINUTES???!!!! WTF???? Yeah, let's make a ver ylong movie, but at the end we'll cut all of the "answer" scenes but not the "question" scenes... very clever....
SimyJo - 8/15/2012, 10:51 AM
Next film-maker's flavour of the month theatrical trick; - CLIFFHANGERS!.

Movie ends with a load of questions..... Buy the Director's cut Blu-Ray to find out the answers!.

AnungUnRama - 8/15/2012, 11:29 AM
I bat those 40 min will not answer any question at least not without raising two new ones. Like Lidelof did with Lost.

Believe me. No deleted scene, no director's cut, no sequel and no trilogy will redeem this movie.
Ryguy88 - 8/15/2012, 11:30 AM
I really enjoyed Prometheus as is but I welcome any extra footage.
Fogs - 8/15/2012, 11:39 AM
Loved it. Will be a classic 20 years from now and you'll say you never hated it. heheh
AnungUnRama - 8/15/2012, 11:40 AM
... bet ...
Maximus101 - 8/15/2012, 12:00 PM
Can't believe this many people are hating this movie, some people just don't have an imagination I guess but this movie was amazing and I can't wait to buy it. They leave questions unanswered cause they have to leave something for a sequel, if they answer everything the sequel won't be as surprising.
GiftedYoungster - 8/15/2012, 12:14 PM
Damn, director's cut? Beyond hyped all over again.
PapaEmeritus - 8/15/2012, 1:36 PM
Sold! Loved it!
spiderclone - 8/15/2012, 2:08 PM
shit movie
LuckDragon - 8/15/2012, 2:51 PM
One of my top 10 favorite movies of all time. I really do not understand why more people did not like this movie. I know some of you do not care what critics think but Prometheus is 73% "certified fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes (182 positive reviews). Many critics loved it, including Roger Ebert. I thought it answered enough questions, especially if you are familiar with the alien universe. Amazing technical detail,visual effects, great acting,good script/story telling; what is not to like? I will definitely be buying this on Blu-ray 3D!

maybe after watching this film a couple more times you morons can maybe understand it :P
CrowPirate1 - 8/16/2012, 4:15 AM
um, okay. I have to be honest here. don't hate me. I fell asleep. my best friend had to nudge me awake. I kept expecting, I don't know, Alien, or Aliens. Not well, this.

Anyways, 40 more minutes about the chase after God... brings back memories of falling asleep watching Star Trek V

okay... I'll shut up now.
One2three - 8/16/2012, 4:46 AM
Cool, I liked this movie! It'll be a welcome addition next to my my alien blu ray anthology.
NorrinRaddical - 8/16/2012, 6:17 AM
truly, this was a great summer for movies, and Prometheus 3D Imax was a top experience.

i love that redletter media spoof, but despite a few holes (i'm torn between the debate on backstory not in film is not a valid excuse VS art that explains itself is obnoxious), my favorite part of the film was the discussion, queries, and dissecting my friend and i had the entire walk home.

fiction that forces me to question answers? now that's my favorite kind of film experience. also, such a fun ride!
whoelsebutkevin - 8/16/2012, 9:11 AM
I cannot wait for the day where I get to hold Avengers, The Amazing Spider-man, Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises all in my hands on Blu-Ray. All great movies within there own film making style. It will be a great day, a great one indeed.
