We have just received three new exclusive images of mutant Fifield courtesy of Blu-ray.com forum user CRS. These new stills come from the alternate scene “Fifield Attacks” (2:14 min) that is featured in the Blu-ray release of Prometheus. CRS has also sent us an extra still from the alternate opening of the film “Arrival of the Engineers” (2:41 min). You can see all new images after the cut.

  1. if you synch 'Cockroach Attack' from the soundtrack to Damnation Alley by Jerry Goldsmith to the CGI Fifield attack it works pretty well and has that weird discordant ALIEN soundtrack feel. I mean it's only proper to pinch an earlier Goldsmith track, it's tradition.

    Just an observation. You can probably get the soundtrack from Itunes or MP3Panda if you're interested in trying it.
  2. lets just face it, it was cut with other bits to give fans a reason to keep buying release after release of the movie. its a money making strategy they have been milking for years. they know we go crazy for deleted/alternate stuff.

    You know,  bet that's precisely what Riddles said when cutting the flick.

    Boy you sure done rumbled him...
    I still think it has to do with the maximum of 2 hours thing.

    They should have made mutant Fifield act more monkey like than barbarian.

    Or you could just refuse to play that game not buy this release at all.  I'm not interested in Prometheus until a director's cut come out. 

    I don't think there are many people that prefer the theatrical release of Blade Runner to the final cut that was released a few years ago.  With that in mind, its true that having patience is the sort of thing that would demand FOX to release a better version sooner.  The reason we get crap first is because nobody knows how to vote with their wallet anymore.
    Bladerunner was a brilliant movie way before any directors cut came out. One can argue that it never needed another cut (regardless of whether it improved it or not). If you don't like Prometheus now, you won't like any future version of it unless your criticisms can be fixed with a  couple of tweaks. Holding out for a directors cut is simply inadvertently creating a market for such things.

  6. They changed the sene because they wanted to give Janek something to do, and this alternate one would have ruined the pacing and mood or order of the scene with the weyland reveal. Ridley shot these 2 scenes knowing from the start one is for the shorter movie version and pg13 and the other for the full length. I didn't listen to the whole ridley commentary but i don't think the design of Firfield was a problem

    so they didnt hear about the damn cut and edit the movie ability?
    now they just left a plothole in it because 1 mercenary is just gone...

  8. its recognizable, there are his tattoos, and the conversation before that between the bridge and the hangar gives u an answer if u wouldnt know who is the mutant, remember? "Hangar crew, this is the bridge! Fifield monitor is just popped in...."

    and yes, i belive Janek and Chance kill him in both version, only changes that Shaw, Weyland and his bodyguards enter the hangar during the fight, maybe they run to the apc , one of them gets killed by the axe and Shaw drives over Fifield, then the pilots kill him.....and what would build up to Janek's sacrafice is the extended scene with the x-mas tree, where he says first "im just flight the ship"...thats why Shaw mention that in her room to Janek in the end
  9. Stills of CGI things in the middle of fast movement rarely look anywhere near as good as they should. Probably looks a hell of a lot better when it's actually moving.
  10. The shot with Alien Fifield killing the guy looks fake as shit.  I like the design but I can see why they cut it, as I could before; some people might laugh at it.

    I did know there was a version where Shaw ran him down - it was shown in the trailers, with her pulling the throttle - and I wouldn't mind seeing that, but it's likely that was cut because perhaps she seemed too kickass so soon after her operation.
  11. THAT LOOKS BAD ASS! But i'm glad they took that out.
    In terms of design, it would had been more scary if his helmet glass became almost opaque with the whatever it is that got him (the goo) and all that was visible was his jaws and teeth. But that would make him too much like the necronomicon gemini thing with the penis tongue.
  12. I thought Janek and Chance ended up killing Fifield off, after Shaw runs him over; Shaw being the one who does the driving instead of a random merc being the difference. Really, the only difference was the creature they were shooting. That vehicle meant for Weyland and co. still drives off into the distance when they're killing the theatrical creature.
  13. Damon Lindelof said something in the commentary about Ridley having shot two versions of the Fifield attack

    in one: Shaw is the one that kills Fifield with the vehicle. It's right before Weyland leaves Prometheus
    in another: Janek is the one that handles the problem in the hangar. This ended up being the one in the movie, because it builds up the character of Janek and sets him up for a sacrifice.

    Guess the two different versions had different creature designs as well?
  14. Was there indication given to why this version of Fifield was cut? Did it look too goofy or something?
    I believe it was because they thought the audience wouldn't know who it was, and goofy? This thing is amazing! I realy hope Neca makes a figure of this, it's just too perfect, the way he looks like the missing link between alien and human is too awesome to not have as a figure :D
