    I guess. Then the Engineer asks Weyland why he wants to live forever (dialog from today's preview). After that the engineer kills David and there's no more dialog from him.

    Skin, Janek fill Vickers in, The Engineer Speaks, final battle.

    The Engineer speaks scene is different than the one in the preview. The first thing the Engineer says according to david is "He wants to know why you are here".

    Is Skin different to the Skin scene already released?

    No.

    So there's not much dialogue between the Engineer and David?  And does Weyland answer the Engineer's question?

    He does. He compares himself to the Engineer and tells him that they are both creators.

    I seem to recall Fox and Cameron getting a lot of mileage out of packaging the deleted scenes/extended version of Aliens a zillion different ways before the Anthology/Quadrilogy just lobbed it on there.

    Those new scenes in Aliens first debuted on the Special Edition laserdisc - they were never available on their own first.

    I have a clear memory of the sentry guns being in the CBS network tv debut of aliens and me losing my shit as a child as it was a new scene not on the VHS.

    This must have been like 1987.

    I remember seeing that same broadcast.

    That's a broadcast, not something available for sale.

    I seem to recall Fox and Cameron getting a lot of mileage out of packaging the deleted scenes/extended version of Aliens a zillion different ways before the Anthology/Quadrilogy just lobbed it on there.  But I remember the early '90s when those scenes were still vaguely mythical if you didn't have a laserdisc or whatever.  "Oooh, the scene about Ripley's daughter!  Oooh, Newt's parents!"

    And yes, they can sell an extended cut of Prometheus.  A lot more consumers will just go out and buy the legit extension if it's released as opposed to living on the Internet for a fan edit.  I wish they'd just bundle the theatrical and an extended now.

    that was expected. They have to sell this film twice :P

    Actually, Fox have never once sold us a new 'Special Edition' of a film in a given format using deleted footage that we already have in that format. The Director's Cut of Alien had some alternate takes of the deleted scenes we'd already seen, along with all-new footage. The closest you could say would be having the Special Edition of Aliens rereleased in the Quadrilogy box, but that hardly counts because within that box we also got Alien: DC, Alien3: AC, and AR: SE.

    If Fox does want to sell us an extended cut down the line, it'll have all-new footage cut into it - they can't simply sell us the fan edit that we all know will be online within a week of 10.11.12.

    The realities of digital VFX production heavy movies make an extended cut (unless it is planned for from the beginning) unlikely. Usually as soon as a shot is dropped from the cut, work on it is being stopped immediately. The only reason we got to see some stills of the CG creature of the Fifield attack is that apparently the decision to go for the practical one was made rather late.
    Usually in the facilities, since disk space is always an issue, things get archived soon after the project is completed. So while it is perfectly possible to go back to the archives and finish shots that were dropped early on, it happens rarely.

    So, if we do see an extended cut, it would most likely only envolve less vfx heavy, dialogue scenes...

    I think I just want to see the deleted scenes.

    I was watching a few clips there on youtube.
    Shaw is a f**king moron and annoying to boot.
    Not sure I can sit through it again.

    It was never going to be a directors cut of the movie... And it's not like the marketing for the home market campaign is going to promote it by saying "here it is... The non directors cut version for the first time on blu-ray".

    It can't be worse than the theatrical cut though.  I would imagine it would improve the film at least a tiny bit.
    That's quite ridiculous... So Ridley Scott purposely left a better movie on the cutting room floor?   ;)

    In Ridley's opinion, what we got was then better movie :P

    Exactly.

    And let's not forget that movie studios often collaborate with directors to cut films down to fit in as many showings as possible per day.

    And Ridley has stated before that first and foremost he is a "business man."  His is focused on pleasing the studios first and then himself and then the fans.

    So, I don't think Ridley is above purposely leaving a better film on the cutting room floor.  How many times have you seen Ridley films get extended cuts?  Blade Runner and Kingdom of Heaven were both better in their newer cuts.

    Seems so pointless NOT to do one. It's almost like the opposite of whatever the fans say happens  :D

    I mean the shits on the disc, I'm sure in this day and age of video editing tools, he could have shoved the scenes back in and printed it by the time he'd smoked his cuban.

    That's assuming it's even worthwhile watching though. Probably not.
  15. Vickers
    It was too good to be true. :'(

     :-\yeah i agree with you i just hope somewher along the line a directors cut or extended cut whatever u wanna call it comes out if not that will be a first for Ridleys blurays lol since pretty much every movie he has made has an extended cut lol. :laugh:

    "...somewhere along the line..."

    I don't like those words.  Even if it's a year of waiting, it's still too long. :-\

    is the 2 hrs & 39 minutes cut a confirmed or just speculation? i thought Scott said no extended cut for prometheus or he wanted to surprise the fans?

    ive just heard around other forums that there wont be an extended cut that those screens are just the theatrical cut including the extras since its an itunes download if true we got our hope's up for no reason with those screens.

    Considering the fact that the chestburster scene in Alien is regarded as one of the scariest scenes in cinema history, and the Deacon scene is treated as a punchline in reviews and comments, I'd say the chestburster is a damn sight scarier than the Deacon.
    A scene done well with a non-scary creature is still scary. Alone, the chestburster isn't scary. In the context of that iconic scene, it's extremely frightening (metal bar holding it up and all). The Deacon scene seemed quite forced, though not too too bad, and the creature design wasn't bad. It just suffered as a result of the nature of the scene. And side by side, I'd say by itself the Deacon is certainly more menacing.

    Update: We talked to Fox and confirmed that the DHD initiative is not limited to only Ultraviolet. According to the studio when this kicks off September 18th, it will make more than 600 films available across stores including Amazon, CinemaNow, iTunes, PlayStation, VUDU and Xbox. Prometheus is also Fox's first UV title and its first new release under the DHD program, but if you prefer your digital movies in another format, it looks like you'll be able to get them.

    Vudu is listing the length at 124 minutes: http://www.vudu.com/movies/#more_info/351221/Prometheus
