Unofficial listing of Prometheus blu-ray features promises 15 minutes of deleted scenes and a copy of the screenplay
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.

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.
