Despite hitting theaters just one month ago, the blu-ray release of PROMETHEUS is already beginning to advertise. A listing for PROMETHEUS has appeared on the French Amazon website along with a huge box set of all the films titled EVOLUTION: FROM ALIEN TO PROMETHEUS.

Nothing has been officially announced for a North American release, yet, but the amount of detail as to the special features on the discs likely means it will be somewhat close in the end.

One of the most interesting notes is the inclusion of the first draft of the screenplay for PROMETHEUS. There is no word on whether this is just an earlier draft or the radically different version screenwriter Jon Spaihts turned in before Damon Lindelof came on board. Either way, I love reading alternate screenplays and would love to see how much actually made the final film.

Here is the full feature listing per the Amazon site. Note, these are the features listed as part of a box set. No word on whether they will also appear on the single movie release as well.

Disc 1 (Prometheus 2D) (+150 minutes of bonuses):

On disk:

Cut scenes or alternative (15 mins)

Audio commentary by director (120 mins)

The private records of Peter Weyland, four viral videos (18 mins):

- The offer of Elizabeth Shaw

- Happy Birthday David

- Prometheus Transmission (extended version)

- The conference Weyland in 2023 (long version)

Outside the disk: Second Screen App: App iPad Control Blu-ray Remote which gives access to the archives of Peter Weyland (60 mins):

Pre-production:

- First and final draft of the script (text)

- Sketches of Ridley Scott (photo gallery)

- The Art of Prometheus (photo gallery)

- Pre-visualization (30 mins)

- Tests of Noomi Rapace (15 mins)

- The costume design (photo gallery)

- Tests “look” of the cast (10 mins)

Production:

- Graphic Video Dashboard

- Photographs of the team

- Video of the private pilot

Production and post-release:

- Marketing Gallery

Disc 2 (Prometheus 3D):

The 3D film active

Disc 3 (Bonus complementary Prometheus):

The angry gods: how to make the Prometheus of Ridley Scott, 9 videos (120 mins):

- At the Conquest of Paradise (scenario)

- The engineering upside down (direction & design)

- The manifest human (characters & costumes)

- A nest of demons (creature design)

- A world without green spaces (Pinewood)

- Gains of chance (stunts & action)

- The beginning and end (Iceland)

- The sky on fire (visual effects)

- Prometheus without limits (post-production and theatrical release)

Units of improvement (30 mins):

- Mini-featurettes

The archives of Peter Weyland (60 mins)

If these are even 75% of what we get on the North American version, I am pre-ordering. I really liked PROMETHEUS and would love to explore all of the features. Already owning the ALIEN Quadrilogy DVD set, I don't know if I will invest in the EVOLUTION box set, but it would definitely be intriguing.

Let me guess, there'll be a 'Director's Cut' released around Christmas too, huh?

This is one of those films where one of the first thoughts out the cinema door is "I must get the Blu-Ray! I must see how they did that, and that, and especially THAT!" and it certainly looks like this release will deliver. I love feature-length behind-the-scenes documentaries, and this one has a 120 minute one in nine parts! It will be very interesting to compare the first and final drafts of the screenplay too. I predict I'll spend a lot of time watching this one again.

Some nice goodies on here. I like they putting all the viral videos on. Never really got into reading screenplays but would give this one a read. I also have the original dvd quadrilogy... the 9 disc monstrosity in all its glory. No need for any new collections.

Still a more intelligent crew than the ones onboard 'Prometheus'

Thought I'd throw in this silly little mash-up. Holloway's rather frank case of space dementia really just burned my bacon!
