Prometheus Extras and Packshot Unveiled – Answers Incoming?

Ridley Scott’s latest foray into science fiction is nearly due for home release. Prometheus, something of a prequel for the Alien franchise, found more than it’s fair share of controversy upon release, attracting equal amounts of praise and questioning. Indeed the promise being touted for the home release is that “questions will be answered”.

There are three separate releases coming to Australia on October 7, a standard DVD release, 2 disc Blu Ray and 4 disc Blu Ray Collector’s Edition. Those expecting an extended Director’s Cut will be disappointed to learn that only the cinematic version of the film is being released at this point in time, although an alternate opening and ending are included on both Blu Ray versions. No doubt any significantly different cut of the film will be helf back for future release.

Fans and debaters alike will no doubt be after the 4 disc edition, which in addition to the alternate scenes comes complete with a behind the scenes documentary titled “Furious Gods”. All up there are over seven hours of bonus features to potentially shed some light on some of the more obscure/confusing aspects of the movie.
