Prometheus Blu-ray producer reports the upcoming disc is epic

Iím guessing PROMETHEUS has garnered more Blu-ray news per week than just about any other home video release this year. The film didnít make a goddamned lick of sense, yet fans desperately want it to. This makes the Blu-ray's deleted scenes, featurettes, and commentary tracks the key to deciphering the nonsensical prequel that is PROMETHEUS. I personally think itís an exercise in futility, but that doesnít mean I canít look forward to what PROMETHEUS Blu-ray producer Charles De Lauzirika describes as ď..one of the most, if not the most, comprehensive discs Iíve ever done.Ē

For those of you who donít know, De Lauzirika is responsible for producing the special editions of BLADE RUNNER and the ALIEN Anthology. Yes, the guy behind for the two most definitive science fiction Blu-ray sets out there is reporting PROMETHEUS blows them out of the water:

"Iím shocked that we were able to achieve the depth and scope of what we were able to do in the time that we had, which was fraction of what we had on a catalog title like, say, BLADE RUNNER, which goes on for years and years and years. PROMETHEUS we had a few months to get out, but itís epic.Ē

While not giving away too much of the discís secretive material, De Lauzirika did touch on some aspects of the behind-the-scenes production:

ďI was out there for several weeks... Iíd go for like two weeks at a time, and I would shoot interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. I shot all of preproduction, which was about a year, and I also shot postproduction. Most of the camerawork is mine on that, but I also had another camera operator, Vanessa White, in the UK who shot when I wasnít there, so we had the whole thing covered, soup to nuts."

Sounds promising, doesnít it? One must admit, even if you hold a special grudge in your heart against PROMETHEUS, the disc alone is shaping up to be technical and supplemental release of the year. Go ahead and pre-order the DVD, Blu-ray , or†Blu-ray 3D†and mark your calendar for the October 11th drop date.

Loved Prometheus also. True it had it faults but nothing that ruined the experience for me. I definately will be checking out the extras, knowing De Lauzirika did the docs will hopefully mean a very high standard than the usual bland backslapping. The Alien docs are amazing and entertaining.

I LOVED PROMETHEUS

"didnt make a lick of sense". Who the hell are writing these articles. The movie was as clear as could be, but also left alot of mystery and cliff hangers in it. I will be picking this Blu ray up midnight at wal mart.
