I saw PROMETHEUS on it's opening weekend at the IMAX Waterloo with some mates who are also fellow Ridley Scott / ALIEN / ALIENS fans - Loved it. Great visuals and a brilliant cast. It felt like an 'event movie'. Watched it a second time, in standard 2-D at a smaller cinema on me jays and it was equally as impressive. I don't get the hate for this film. People all bitching about "Oh, it wasn't as good as ALIEN or BLADE RUNNER." Yes, thank you - we sorta knew it wasn't gonna be or perhaps even supposed to be! Not a 'game-changer' but I dig it.

And Noomi Rapace... I love that girl.

Is there no word on a Ridley Director's Cut release for this film? Going to pre-order the blu ray (12.99 at Sainsbury's Entertainment) but want to make sure there isn't gonna be a DC along the line?

Knowing Ridley there will almost definitely be a directors cut somewhere down the line. But if you can't wait that long then you're better off getting the 'normal' blu-ray. £12.99 isn't that bad for a new release.

Ain't no Directors Cut. The Blu Ray has about 30mins of deleated and alterantive scenes but the movie is the movie. It is being given so many extras now that a bigger release is highly unlikely.

Good,good.
I know some of the more critical fans wanted a D.Cut,and were expecting it to tidy up some loose-ends,but i'm glad its sticking to its original theater release.
And having seen a few of these cut-out scenes its fair to say they aren't , really,much of a loss.

I think one of the main problems with this film is that it just wasnt scary enough and part of the reason why that was so was because most of the characters were idiots and badly written ( Those two who got lost inside the ship were so dumb that they may as well have gotten Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels to play them ).

Very inappropriate use of score as well.The main theme is quite nice but its far too uplifting for a film like this.

A visually stunning piece of work however and should look mighty pretty on blu ray.

2 good points there. Those 2 characters were like Jason fodder - you were almost cheering when they were killed off - even though one of the buggers had a temporary ressurection.

And the score was fairly bizarre at times, like you said quite uplifting, when you'd be expecting something darker and menacing - sort of took me out of it in the last 20mins or so.

Like someone said in this thread (or was it the review thread?) the score wouldn't feel out of place in a Superman movie.

Full listing of extras for the 3D blu:

London (September 28, 2012) – Upon anticipation from the highly active fan community, renowned director Ridley Scott’s gripping sci-fi thriller makes its debut on Blu-ray 3D Collector’s Edition, Blu-ray, and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Archeologist couple Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Marshall-Green) discover a star map that they interpret as an invitation from humanity's forerunners, the “Engineers.” Determined to find out more about them, the couple boards the scientific vessel Prometheus, created and funded by Peter Weyland (Pearce), CEO of Weyland Corporation. Lead by mission director Meredith Vickers (Theron) and monitored by Weyland’s android David (Fassbender), the team of explorers find a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth and embark on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe where they fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

The Blu-ray 3D Collector’s Edition of Prometheus features the original theatrical release and will be available in premium packaging. Get the ultimate experience with this premium edition which features the revealing behind-the-scenes documentary “Furious Gods”, an Alternate Opening and Ending, Extended / Deleted Scenes, commentary by director and writers, the cutting edge Prometheus: Weyland Corp Archive Second Screen App and more!

And so it begins, first dvd buyers are shafted in favor of blu ray and now regular blu ray buyers are shafted in favor of pushing this 3D nonsense on the home cinema market.

Best way to fight this is to boycott 3D blu ray versions of films like Prometheus in favor of the regular blu ray and dvd.Ok so you might miss out on a few extra features but its the film thats the most important thing when buying a film right?

When Dredd comes out on blu it had damn well better not have that 3D version on it.I dont care if the 3D version has tons of extras and the normal blu ray is bare bones.I just want to watch the film without havng to wear silly specs.

Really sick of DVD owners getting screwed. I'm not interested in Blu-ray. At least both the recent DVD and Blu-ray editions of James Cameron's Avatar had all the extras.

So how much are we betting that an Ultimate Edition containing a Director's Cut will be announced not long after this is released?

Please don't take this the wrong way or as being confrontational or anything, but how, as a movie fan, can you not be interested in Blu ray? I'm not being facetious, i just genuinely do not understand how any film lover could have no interested in this superlative format.

I'm happy with DVD quality dude, Blu-ray is something I'm not bothered about, although with the recent Hammer Double-Play Special Editions, I'll have to buy a few as they won't release the films as stand-alone versions.

Fair enough. I think it's something that if you did make the move to Blu you'd really notice the difference and appreciate the huge jump in quality with not HD picture but HD sound also. Of course i can understand those with a big DVD collection being reticent to starting a whole catalogue of movies again. I'm very passionate about Blu Ray and always encourage fellow film lovers to take the plunge whenever i get the chance!

Sad to say [and I know we tend to agree on a lot Donovan!], I'm not bothered about BR either, at least not yet! I'm happy with DVD and especially how cheap many DVDs are at the moment.

Here here. It's not just a sharper image, it's the extra detail and extra colour that's now visible because colours aren't being smudged together. The difference between DVD and Blu Ray can be breathtaking.

Thirded. Watching the Alien / Aliens blu-rays are like watching new films.

As for the Prometheus blu, I'm going to hang on until 10.11.12 and see what that's all about before investing. Just in case it is a DC.

EDIT: Just saw this - http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/prometheus-3d-blu-ray-13-49-sainsburys-new-customers-only-1271417

If you can put up with having a redundant 3D disc as a trade up from having the 3hr Doc missing from the other versions £13.49 isn't a bad price at all.

I buy both dvds and blu rays.But in all possibility id probably still be primary a dvd user if it wasnt for the fact that my PS3 is a blu ray player but i mainly bought it to play games.

The Prometheus bly ray 3D thing is fucking ridiculous joke.Many will want all the extras but i dont see many wanting a 3D disc.3D TV is even more redundant than having it at the cinema.

Well, accroding to you it is. I actually like home 3D. Most 3D home viewings of films have been pretty damn good, with decent quality 3D. Sport in 3D is a massive improvement, gaming in 3D can be quite good too.

As I mentioned in the Blu Ray thread my 3D Prometheus has been dispatched and if it arrives this weekend and my new TV arrives, I cant wait to see it in 3D again. I dont recall if youve actually seen it in 3D, if not, you arent really in a position to state if it does or doesnt work. The 3D in Prometheus was, at times, stunning. The star maps looked great, the caverns within the alien structure looked great. The ships corridors looked great. The 3D gave many scenes a good feel of depth, it was never dark and it never felt gimmicky. Scott shot the film in 3D, it is the intended viewing format. It is anything but redundant in this case. Hands down the best use of 3D I've seen. As for the lack of extras on DVD, I cant accept that it is a ridiculous joke. It's no different to the days of VHS and DVD, if you want the extras, you pay more for them on the whizz bang set. You have Blu Ray so what is the problem? Buy the 3D Blu set, get the extras, get the film (in 2D and 3D) get whatever digital copy they include. How can that be a joke or a rip off? Youre paying for that content. If youre not paying, why should you get the content. It makes no sense to me.

Aye, Prometheus in 3D looked stunning. I'm not a fan of the format (it gives me a headache) but Ridley used it well and It looked sooo good, can't wait for my Blu-ray to arrive. It's still my favourite film of the year.

Indeed. I have issues with the film still, particularly with the score and the reluctance of characters to discuss events within the movie (Damon Lindelof's Lost Syndrome!) but everything else it did, it did really well in my opinion. It stuck with me for weeks and I thought about it more than most other films I've seen this year. I liked, nay loved, that it didnt end with lots of answers to questions. I like that Alien and the events leading up to that movie are still a mystery. I love that it begins to open up and expand on the Xeno's life cycle and the themes of reproduction and impregnation from Alien start to creep in during Prometheus (Shaw's infertility, Holloway's mutant sperm etc). Cant wait to watch it again when the Blu arrives...

Blu Ray on the way from Play.Com,though it's the 2D version as i'm not a fan of 3D it's just to much a pain to watch,and adds very little to my enjoyment.Saying that i felt the 3D cinema release was one of the better 3D films i've seen this year apart from Dredd which was so much fun.I agree though that Blu-Ray is made for film,as the picture and sound is just so much better than ye old DVD,but i'm in no hurry to replace the 300+ DVD's i have.But i have forked out for the A L I E N box set yet again,which i have on VHS,DVD and now Blu-Ray,and as thatlittlemonkey said it's like watching new films.In fact i'd go futher,as i was lucky enough(old enough) to see A L I E N on it's first release on ye old big screen,and have to say it's never sounded or looked better than on Blu-Ray.

If youre not paying, why should you get the content. It makes no sense to me.


Ok heres the thing.Scott was pretty much forced into shooting Prometheus in 3D as it was one of the reasons the film was greenlit in the first place.He would have shot it in regular 2D if he could but hes not Chris Nolan so he was overuled by the suits at Fox.Secondly,just because a film was shot with 3D cameras does not mean it is necessarily supposed to be the primary way to view the film.Scott (like any decent filmaker would) shot the film in mind to be seen in 3D and regular 2D.

I saw Prometheus at my local cinema in regular 2D and thought it looked beautiful.I certainly did not feel i was missing anything because i wasnt wearing silly specs and having computer displays sticking out at me.I have my issues with the films rather poor script and idiotic characters but im glad i saw it as it was overall a fun movie.

And sorry porntrooper it IS a joke to keep exclusive extras to those who want them on the 3D set.A lot of people want to see those extras but will have to pay more for a 3D disc they will never use when they could have easily put those extra extras on the regular Blu and dvd editions.

But the 3D set is the special edition, so it's not a joke. If you want the extras, get the special edition.
