There’s no hiding the fact that Ridley Scott’s summer sci-fi adventure “Prometheus” was divisive amongst moviegoers and critics alike, and we certainly had some heated discussions of our own here at The Playlist. But now that the dust has settled – and we’re a little over two months away from the film’s theatrical release – it would seem like it’s time to put away all “Prometheus” verbal sparring for now...at least until the DVD/Blu-ray comes out.

Well some folks are already looking for pieces to fill the puzzle of myriad plot holes and logical gaps found throughout the film (and this is coming from a writer who liked it) within the names of the deleted scenes on the DVD release. Bleeding Cool has found the list courtesy of the BBFC and with scene names like “The Engineers Arrive,” “Our First Alien,” and “Paradise” (perhaps Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender’s head found it after all?), maybe some of the loose ends of “Prometheus” will be tidied up. Keep in mind, these aren’t being reinstated into the film despite the fact that Scott has a storied love of director’s cuts, but perhaps there’s some semblance of meaning in these scenes for those still searching for it.

The full list of deleted scene titles is below if you want to try to figure this one out for yourself, or you could just wait for the film to come out on October 11th and you can just actually watch them then. Either way, happy hunting!

    Alien franchise is dead to me. Adding more scenes to an already bad film is not going to make it better. Don't even get me started.

    It's not necessarily a bad film though.

    It was very well shot, it was well directed, it had a compelling and intelligent premise and plot. What didn't have was continuity. More than that it was missing many events that would have led to characters drawing conclusions and motivations for actions.

    This film has all the hallmarks of a TERRIBLE editing job. It could be an incredible film - that ended up on the cutting room floor. Time will tell.

    I will give credit to Scott for playing everyone into seeing Prometheus. He originally stated his finished film was the directors cut, the rating was properly awarded and there were no deleted scenes. Once word got around about the lackluster film, he sprung out and said that Fox was to blame on the forced content, the film was not the directors cut and there were scenes left out to explain the logic behind the gaping holes. Watch their will be a directors cut coming next year.

    No more Fifeld, no more Fifeld, I can't handle any more stupid speeches about liking money.

    Fifield was awesome! You must have a short attention span if you call those "speaches", kid!

  • Great Scott! | August 16, 2012 8:55 PMReply

    The Engineer Speaks....for 4 minutes? That could be something.
