There’s no hiding the fact that Ridley Scott’s summer sci-fi adventure “Prometheus” was divisive amongst moviegoers and critics alike, and we certainly had some heated discussions of our own here at The Playlist. But now that the dust has settled – and we’re a little over two months away from the film’s theatrical release – it would seem like it’s time to put away all “Prometheus” verbal sparring for now…at least until the DVD/Blu-ray comes out.
Well some folks are already looking for pieces to fill the puzzle of myriad plot holes and logical gaps found throughout the film (and this is coming from a writer who liked it) within the names of the deleted scenes on the DVD release. Bleeding Cool has found the list courtesy of the BBFC and with scene names like “The Engineers Arrive,” “Our First Alien,” and “Paradise” (perhaps Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender’s head found it after all?), maybe some of the loose ends of “Prometheus” will be tidied up. Keep in mind, these aren’t being reinstated into the film despite the fact that Scott has a storied love of director’s cuts, but perhaps there’s some semblance of meaning in these scenes for those still searching for it.
The full list of deleted scene titles is below if you want to try to figure this one out for yourself, or you could just wait for the film to come out on October 11th and you can just actually watch them then. Either way, happy hunting!
