  1. The older version looked better. Honestly the new version with the zombie make up and horrible editing thrown in just made the scene look hilarious with him going all rage-zombie and punching the shit out of people.  :laugh:
  2. I will say this; if the alternate Fifield design is used for the deleted scene on the Blu-Ray, then I know which version of the attack sequence will be making its way into my fan-edit!
  3. I can see why he changed it from the point of view of someone who is pandering to over all pretty dense audiences. The CGI creature might be confusing to some as to it's origins. It's obvious to us, who have poured over these things like forensic scientists, but to the causal viewer?

    I can also see why he might be inclined to use an actor because of the performance. Then again, we haven't seen this CGI monster in action. We don't know how well it emotes and if it comes off as a living, breathing creature on screen.
  4. That and the fact that he came out and said that he changed the design. It originally looked like this:

    But Ridley was unhappy with it and changed it to this:

    Thanks for posting those images. I've never before seen the first two images. I can see why Ridley decided to change the final design.


    You can? Really?!

    It's just a guess. I think that the eariler design just looked too radically different from the human Fifield to the point that it becomes almost impossible to tell that they are one and the same. I also think that the second, more human Fifield, looks more scarier.

    On the plus side, the eariler design of Fifields gives more of an idea of what the black goo was meant for.

  7. Okay, I can't find any comparison photos, sorry. So here's my own attempt:
    ORIGINAL TRAILER FOR TRAILER FIFIELD:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QMXTS0_7ZA#ws
    (Time: 0:12)
    LATER TRAILERS:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7GQvXuQJVI#ws
    (Time: 2:32)

    It's hard to see but I swear, the proportions of the body are different. Original: long limbed and alien-like. Later on, it's much more human-like proportions, since it's actual Sean Harris rather than a digital beast.

    Both versions still look the same to me. I think I'll just wait until the blu-ray comes out.


    Look closer man. It's not even close to the same

    I finally noticed the difference after seeing the first trailer seven times. Yeah, the right arm is definitely a lot more elongated than it appears in the final movie. But is that the only shot/pic that shows that Ridley may have changed Fifields' final design?

  11. Not in all. In one trailer it did have longer limbs and there was a nice comparison photo a while back during a discussion on this.  People argued over whether or not it was a xeno and if the space suit armor was getting fused to the body biomechanically.
  12. FIFIELD ATTACKS

    Hopefully this will be the WETA 'altered' Fifield with a more 'alien' look and the long limbs/claws.

    I don't think so. I think that it is just going to be the alternate version of Fifield's attack with Weyland present, as seen in the trailers that were shown before the movie was released.

    Fifield WAS altered with the head/limbs/claws in the trailers that were shown before the movie was released - it was a major WTF for those who had scrutinized the trailer and then realized that the creature was missing from the final cut of the film.

    I know that the concept art showed a more Xenomorph-esque Fifield but the Fifield in the trailers looked just like one in the final movie.

  14. Sorry for cursing -- edit it mods if you must -- but f**kin A -- when I first looked at the Deleted Scenes -- I read it as  "JANEK FILLS VICKERS"  and I figured THAT debate is finally over!

  15. Foxconnect.com has confirmed that the release date is 10/11/12....
    And they are taking Pre-orders..

    $25.99 for the Blu/dvd/digitalcopy.
    www.foxconnect.com/prometheus-blu-ray-digital-copy-dvd-widescreen.html

    $31.99 for the 4 disc collector's edition.
    www.foxconnect.com/prometheus-4-disc-collector-s-edition-digital-copy-dvd-widescreen.html

    NOTE** It looks like only the 4 disc edition will have all of the special features that have been listed over the past few days.
  16. Those deleted scenes look promissing and I'm especially looking forward to 'Paradise' (more hints to the the sequel?). Do you remember the times of VHS when we could only read about deleted scenes and never actually see any of those? Luckily, thanks to LaserDisc, DVD and now Blu-ray that is the the thing of past.
  17. I think the title "Alternate & Deleted Scenes" says it all :P

    How much of these are "new" scenes (rather than variations) is unknown, but certainly some interesting titles there :)
  18. Are these going to be stand-alone deleted scenes in themselves, or just variations of existing scenes with minor changes, or a mix of both. i.e. engineer vs. shaw extended fight scene/paradise hint at being totally new, whereas others sound like they'd be pretty similar to what was in the theatrical cut.

    Mixed. I'm sure a few of them are completely new scenes, but a lot seem to be extended/alternate variants as well.

  20. If you guys want a sex scene, I have a hunch 'Strange Bedfellows' could be your destination. It comes right before 'Holloway Hungover', which makes sense. Me, I'm looking forward to 'Paradise', in particular! :)
  21. I respect Ridley from a business standpoint, this movie needed to make a lot of money to keep the franchise alive, but to cut 35 minutes from the movie seems less than artistic. Of course Fox probably forced a cut to keep the run time down.
  22. I'm looking forward to the deleted scene titled Paradise....

    Me too!
    I can't remember what thread it was but there was a member on here saying there was more to the ending than what we got, something along the lines of Shaw and David actually arriving on the engineers homeworld which is very much like waterworld.

    Would make sense as the filming in Spain went on for 3 months and I cant imagine the Weyland cut scene would take that long to do
  23. Seeing that list of surprisingly lengthy deleted scenes gives me a bitter-sweet feeling.  On the one hand, I'm relieved that the material will be included on the disc but on the other hand, it makes me all the sadder that we won't be getting an extended cut.

    Hopefully, some kind person will put together a fan edit and post it online.  Ideally though, I really had been hoping for an official extended cut.

    I'm pretty confident there'll be an extended cut yet. Fox would just like to milk our collective teats a little more before it happens.
