Indeed, it wouldn’t be a week for news if we didn’t have something PROMETHEUS related to report and report I shall. If you’re like me and experienced knee-jerk frustration over PROMETHEUS’ out-of-nowhere plot twists and vague Space Jockey mythology, perhaps these deleted scenes that have surfaced will help shed some light on an otherwise murky ALIEN prequel.
Wait, sorry. That was misleading-- I don’t actually have the deleted scenes that Sir Ridley has teased us with in recent news strories, but I do have descriptions and running times from the BBFC’s Blu-ray/DVD listing. Which is just as good, right? I mean, the power of your imagination combined with the titles below should yield results far more interesting than the scenes themselves. All of mine involve Charlize Theron holding a pulse rifle while wearing a Weyland-Yutani string bikini. Yes, even the ones taking place before the Earth’s existence. I’m all inclusive that way.
