PROMETHEUS Blu-Ray promises that questions will be answered

Prometheus is a touchy subject around these parts. Every time somebody starts a discussion about either my or Noelle’s review, it opens up a can of chihuahahs. Yes, chihauhaus. Worms are far too docile and quiet.

While I wasn’t as antagonistic towards the film as Noelle was, we both agreed that director Ridley Scott and writer Damon Lindelof dangling these answers in front of your face and then yanking them away at the last second, was a cheap move. If you still feel slighted by this, then maybe you need to give them a second chance on Blu Ray.

The film will be getting its home release on October 9th and will coming out in two flavours: the standard 2 disc edition, and a special 4-disc collectors edition, that will have the 2D, 3D, DVD and digital copies of the film. But useless extra discs that you’ll probably never give a second’s thought to ever again, is not the only thing this collection brings to the table, as it will be boasting a whopping 7 hours of extra material, including 2 commentary tracks from Scott and Lindelof respectively, 15 minutes of deleted footage and, as you can see in the Blu-Ray release trailer below, five featurettes that addresses some of the film’s more contentious issues, such whether or not this is the planet from Aliens.

And here’s the full list of extras for the 2 editions (thanks to /Film):

Prometheus 4-Disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Extras

Disc 1

  • Theatrical Cut
  • Commentary by Director/Producer Ridley Scott
  • Commentary by Writer Jon Spaihts and Writer/Executive Producer Damon Lindelof

  • Prometheus – Weyland Corp Archive Second Screen App

Prometheus 2-Disc Blu-ray Extras

While I highly doubt that the answers to any of the film’s major mysteries will be addressed (like why Weyland would hire a crew of cowardly idiots with the survival instincts of a fruit fly for the greatest mission in mankind’s history?) at least this should hopefully help to quell the geekfights that keep breaking out all over the internet. Trust me, geekfights are nasty.
