Prometheus is getting an extended edition on Blu-ray

Oct. 1, 2012by: Alex Maidy

For those of you who didn't already purchase it on Digital HD, PROMETHEUS will be hitting stores in physical format on October 9th in both standard and extended versions.

PROMETHEUS will be released as a 2 disc combo pack and a 4 disc Collector's Edition. According to the press release, it will be loaded with over seven hours of bonus material, the PROMETHEUS 4-Disc Collector's Edition and 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack feature the original theatrical release and are available in premium packaging. Fans can get the ultimate Prometheus experience with an Alternate Opening and Ending, Deleted and Alternate Scenes, access to "Peter Weyland's Files," commentary by directors and writers, a cutting-edge Prometheus Weyland Corp. Archive Second Screen App and more!

So, while it may not be the director's cut we were all hoping for, there will be the option to view the film's extended opening and ending sequences we have been hearing about. Both versions of the Blu-ray will feature the extended edition, but only the 4 disc set will have the additional disc of special features. Check out the listing below:

PROMETHEUS 2-Disc Blu-ray Special Features

Disc 1

      Theatrical Cut

      Commentary by Director/Producer Ridley Scott

      Commentary by Writer Jon Spaihts and Writer/Executive Producer Damon Lindelof

      The Peter Weyland Files          

      Deleted and Alternate Scenes that include an Alternate Opening / Ending

      Prometheus – Weyland Corp Archive Second Screen App    

Disc 2

      DVD/Digital Copy   

I miss the old days where we used to get branching DVDs. The first X-MEN movie had that as a special feature where you could see the deleted scenes and pre-visualized sequences added back into the movie. It gave the function of a director's cut without re-editing the entire film. Watching an alternate opening and ending by themselves certainly is cool, but integrating it back into the movie is awesome.

Are you excited for PROMETHEUS on Blu-ray?

Extra Tidbit: I just wish I didn't have to own a 3D copy of the movie just to get the Collector's Edition. Real collectors don't give a shit about 3D.

Ugh.

I really liked the movie. I really don't like 3D. Give us a 3-disc version and I'll buy it. Otherwise, just getting the 2-disc version and Fox can choke on their 3D blu-ray disc. By the way, their whole "digital download" thing really sucks. Just do it through iTunes, morons.

Change the deceptive headline

This is not an 'extended edition'. This is the theatrical cut with the option to view some deleted scenes separately... you know, just like every other regular movie that comes with a few deleted scenes.

What a jip

Didn't really like the movie. Then after reading about it, I positively HATED it.
It has Alien VS Predator quality of story.
tidbit: I agree 3D sucks! And home theater 3D looks like a VHS diorama.
It's a gimmick to get people back in theaters and siphon more money.

SO there really is no difference between the 4 disc & 2 disc other than the 3D version & both have the extended versions? On that note, I am sticking with the 2 disc version thank you very much.

No where does it say Extended Edition on any of the boxes. How do you know what real collectors want? Stating your opinion is one thing but come on man. So much fail in this article.

Wasn't there something about a separate edition coming out in December with some extra content?

Yes, I have seen a movie in 3D in a fancy schmancy home theater with all the trimmings. Still not impressed. I don't need special glasses to enhance my movie experience.

Maybe Alex should ask his 5 year old what he thinks about 3D and write an article, like how he did with The Avengers. LOL, fail.

I have a 51" Plasma 3D TV and it's decent - but that said, he didn't say anything about the quality of Home Theater 3D. He said that collectors don't care about 3D. That's totally different than assailing the home 3D format, or your precious, mind-blowing home theater 3D set.

Looking at 3D adoption rate statistic, its a safe bet that the majority of film collectors (especially the younger demographic you'd see on this site) don't have a 3D TV yet - so why would they. The criticism is that

The criticism is that you have to buy the 3D version to get many of the other bells and whistles (like the case and the extras on disc 2).

So maybe you ought to relax and read what was written, instead of of immediately winding yourself up like Donkey Kong. Also - if you are going to knock the professionalism of the columnist, it might serve your own credibility better to use correct capitalization, punctuation, and using things like, I don't know, the actual word "you" instead of internet shorthand. It's one thing to text your buddy in shorthand, but trying to assert your expertise gets undercut when you refer to us as "ppl." Just a thought.

More Charlize!

All the bonus material should be more Charlize Theron in a tight spacesuit. The rest of the movie doesn't matter.. :D

Extended? are you sure?

the specs make it look like it's just alternate/extended openings and or endings that you can view like the deleted scenes, not an actual different version of the movie that will play the entire thing with them (not separately). Anyways I expect a real extended cut/director's cut somewhere down the line, Ridley is king of the double (and then some) dips haha.

As for the Tidbit: seriously? That's a pretty lame and condescending point of view. Cool if you don't like 3D, whatever, but I'm sure

As for the Tidbit: seriously? That's a pretty lame and condescending point of view. Cool if you don't like 3D, whatever, but I'm sure there are tons of fans of Prometheus and tons of 'real collectors' who like 3D and would like to have the 3D version. I saw Prometheus in 3D and it was fantastic, I'd love to own the 3D version so (well, one day down the line, once I can afford a 3DHDTV heh) I could watch it again. Not saying it should be an automatic inclusion but if I were to cut anything from the collection it would DEFINITELY be the fucking Digital Copy followed by the DVD copy. The 3D version is actually one thing that could come in handy in the future.

Tidbit.

Amen to that. To get the Steelbook version of AVENGERS, I had to get it in 3D as well.
