I never saw Prometheus. There, I admit it. Thing is, I do still want to see it, and after several scathing reviews, my D-senses were tingling something fiercely, which made me decide to rather wait for a Blu-Ray release that might have some extra footage on it, resulting in a possible first-time viewing that I could enjoy.
Looks like that waiting might have been worth it.
Seeing as how the film had one of those allegedly open endings, it looks like quite a bit of footage was left behind in the editing rooms. Quite a bit in fact.
Bleeding Cool did some maths, and found out that the upcoming cut of the film that had been submitted for classification could have 14 additional scenes running the length of 35 minutes added, as well as an extra 15 minutes being thrown into the third act.
You can see for yourself in the track titles from the upcoming Blu-Ray yourself, so needless to say, there be spoilers here:
SPOILERS MAN! SPOILERS MAN! WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE!

I’m writing this without looking at those titles, so judge for yourself. Still, hopefully this new footage improves upon the film, and makes up for that apparently head-scratchingly stupid ending, that has had Kervyn in a coma for several weeks now.
