Listen to the Engineer’s Voice and an Unused Track from PROMETHEUS

     September 18, 2012


Next month, Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus will hit Blu-ray, and it will contain a slew of special features including 15 minutes of deleted scenes.  One of those scenes will let us listen to the Engineer’s voice.  You may recall [spoilers for those who haven’t seen the movie yet] that the Engineer stays silent when David speaks to him (click here for what David (Michael Fassbender) said).  In the deleted scene, we hear that the Engineer speaks in a guttural voice, which fits the character’s size and build, but doesn’t feel too original.  Prometheus has a lot of problems, but letting the Engineer stay silent and mysterious isn’t one of them.

An unused track from the film has also leaked online, and it was reportedly supposed to be used during the scene where Shaw (Noomi Rapace) ventures out into a storm to retrieve the decapitated head of an Engineer.  I’m not sure if the music would have fit the scene (I only saw the movie once), but it would certainly fit a bevy of trailers for sci-fi action movies.  Hit the jump to check out the deleted scene and the unused track.  Prometheus hits Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on October 11th.
