One of the most frustrating things about Prometheus is its potential. There are simply too many plot holes (which, admittedly, I didn’t notice when I saw the film; I was wrapped up in the visuals, performance, and strength of Ridley Scott‘s direction). The fact that the marketing for the Blu-ray has had to be “Questions Will Be Answered” is preposterous. This isn’t Lost. This is a movie, and either the questions should have been answered or they should purposely be left ambiguous. Looking back on Prometheus, I’ve wondered if the more fulfilling picture is out there either in a director’s cut or in screenwriter Jon Spaihts‘ original script.
Hit the jump for why we won’t be seeing the director’s cut, but we can learn a bit more about what Spaihts intended before screenwriter Damon Lindelof came on board. Prometheus hits DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D Blu-ray tomorrow.
