Contrary to what we’ve heard so far, in an interview with the BBC, Ridley Scott admits that cuts were made to Prometheus. Though it’s implied the cuts were for violence and gore rather than new scenes.
“The film is violent and tense but Sir Ridley – who has been an outspoken critic of the current rules of film ratings – insists he “cut as much he could to open the film to a wider audience.”‘
“It has to be about the movie, so I’ve made concessions. There’s a moment where you don’t want to harm the movie.”
“But he acknowledges its a case of simple economics and getting an 18 certificate “could be the difference of $80m or more””.
