PROMETHEUS Blu-ray Trailer Promises Questions Will Be Answered; Ridley Scott Says SOCIAL NETWORK Convinced Him to Shoot on RED

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):

    Ohhhhh mannnnn, will this start a trend of “you have to buy the Blu-ray/DVD” to get the full plot?

    • Beatific

      I hope that idea doesn’t catch on….

    I was hoping for a director’s cut :(

  • Robb

    I thought he was going to do an extended cut on Blu. I guess he changed his mind. Just deleted scenes. I had problems with the movie, but I find Ridley’s failures more interesting than most other director’s successes. I’ll pick this up.

  • mattedscreen

    Why do they keep referring to a theatrical cut? is there a hidden director’s cut? Or is this part of an inevitable double dip?

    • Matty

      Yeah, I noticed that too. I want to own this but if they’re planning to release an extended cut later on, I’d rather wait.

  • tarek

    Of what answers are you talking about ? the movie was crystal clear. a good balance between Sci-fi theories and Mystery. Up to you to fill in the gaps.

    We are not talking about 2001 A space Odyssey nonsense. I’m sure Kubrick was on speed when he made the movie.

  • Chad

    Oh Ridley…

    “You have to do better stories…”

    He should take his own advice.

  • aaronsullivan

    This movie grows on me as I think about it. I didn’t LOVE it when I walked out, just liked it. But I keep thinking about it, and not in a negative way. Will have to watch it again. Tonally, I don’t know how a sequel could work, though.

  • Strong Enough

    Prometheus is ahead of it’s time. give it 500 years. i’m sure people will catch on by then

  • jose

    My fav movie of the year.

  • Tiredofdoubledip

    I am sick and tired of studios double dipping!
    Of course they will release a Director’s cut six months down the track.

    Remember when the blu ray was the one with all the stuff on it? Now we have the regular blu ray, and the more expensive blu ray. Sickens me they resort to these cheap marketing tactics to squeeze a few more coins from the weary public. Now excuse me, I have to go pre order the Special Edition. Damn, I’m so weak…

  • Sugreev2001

    Biggest Disappointment of the year ! I’m never watching this movie again,even though I loved Fassbender’s perfomance….but then again,it’s hard not to get a good performance out of him.

  • MainFragger

    Great…you filmed on Red..the filming itself looked great…too bad the movie of a giant turd. Maybe seeing it less detail with a lesser camera might have actually helped…

  • michael

    I have seen this 3 times so far My Favourite movie going experience of the Summer- The Avengers and TDKR were okay but Prometheus did it for me- Cannot wait for the Sequel(s) ! $400 million at the worldwide box office for a R Rated Sci Fi Film!!!!

    • zac

      well considering the budget 130 mil and prints and ads 70 mil and after theatres take their cut this movie barely just broke even! also in america this was r rates everywhere in the world kids could watch it under 17 without a parent…this movie is an incredible disappointment! and as for answering questions why not just answer em in the movie and forget “lets save it for dvd/blu ray”

      • tarek

        Speak for yourself. This movie is intended to Sci-Fi purists, not for Big badaboom fans.
        soon you will be happy with the Transformers 4 blu-ray. Be patient Luke.

    Prometheus wasn’t perfect but more satisfying than any of the other blockbusters in summer ’12. And much more original than nuke-bomb Batman, worm-hole Avengers, and goofy-teen Spiderman.
