Tyler Perry and lots of other people didn't like "Prometheus." Some other people did. And between the two there have been a lot of conversation about Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi and quasi "Alien" prequel about what it all means and where it could possible go from here. At any rate, when it arrives on Blu-ray, as expected, there will be plenty more to explore.

Tyler Perry and lots of other people didn't like "Prometheus." Some other people did. And between the two there have been a lot of conversation about Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi and quasi "Alien" prequel about what it all means and where it could possible go from here. At any rate, when it arrives on Blu-ray, as expected, there will be plenty more to explore.

While during the endless press rounds for the movie Ridley Scott said there would be an extended cut with about twenty minutes of new footage, it seems that plan has changed slightly. It should be noted, that these details pertain to the French release of the disc (Prometheus Forum via Collider), but unless Fox plans to make things more irritating for fans of the movie or franchise, we'd wager most of these will extras will be on the North American release as well. Anyway, the release will instead contain fifteen minutes of deleted or alternate scenes, along with a director's commentary (natch) and a whole lot more.

Will questions be answered? Will the commentary end with Ridley Scott going "PSYCHE!" Will we also get the chance to buy the massive 9-disc "Evolution: From Alien to Prometheus" box set French folks are getting? Will this tie into the ongoing viral campaign? When can we stop asking questions? No release date yet for "Prometheus" but it streets in France on October 3rd, so probably sometime around then. Full details below and again, this is all subject to change.
