Though we previously saw a leak of some possible special features and specs, the official details regarding the Blu-ray release of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus have finally been unveiled.  Two versions of the film will be available: a basic, 2-disc Blu-ray, and a special features-packed 4-disc collector’s edition.  The collector’s edition includes both the 2D and 3D versions of the film as well as a DVD and digital copy, but the real treasure is in the extras.  A whopping seven hours of special features are included on the collector’s edition including two sets of commentaries (yes, Damon Lindelof did one), 15 minutes of deleted scenes, and five featurettes.

A Blu-ray trailer has landed online that teases the multitude of extras, and it promises that “questions will be answered.”  In the video we see Scott tease that we’ll “find out who this race was” in the sequel to Prometheus, and some hotly discussed issues (such as whether this is the same planet as in Alien) are addressed.  Moreover, another video has surfaced in which Scott explains that seeing The Social Network convinced him to shoot Prometheus using the RED camera.  Hit the jump for much more.

First off, here’s the Blu-ray trailer:

And here’s a video made by RED Digital Cinema in which Scott reveals that watching David Fincher’s The Social Network convinced him that the RED camera was the digital camera to use on Prometheus (via The Playlist):
