    The Prometheus/Alien box set details confirm the inclusion of many extras that Prometheus fans have long anticipated for such as Spaihts’ original Untitled Alien Prequel draft, deleted/alternative scenes, the extended Weyland TEDTalk video, and much more.

    Also there are 6 discs dedicated to the original four Alien films. But since we already have the Alien Anthology box set, we’ll be waiting for the release of that Prometheus-only disc set, right?

    Confirmation of (15 minutes of?) deleted/alternative scenes, extended version of Weyland's TEDTalk speech, and Spaihts' UAP script all included.

    "The offer to Elizabeth Shaw" could be an extended version of the Quiet Eye video. 

    "Prometheus Transmission" is probably violin girl.

    @Viscal :

    That's an amazing array of stuff to offer in one package. It looks as though it may be worth it!
  • kjohnson26kjohnson26  (1 like this)

    I thought they would wait for the sequel to come out (or it was decided not to do the sequel) before doing a full combined boxset of Prometheus and the Alien series. I guess Fox thinks they can put out a whole new combined boxset every time a new Prometheus sequel comes out.

    Edit:

    There is also this thing:
    Outside the disk: Second Screen App: App iPad Control Blu-ray Remote which gives access to the archives of Peter Weyland (60 '):

    What does the (150 ') mean next to the first disc's title?
    Is that a runtime?!
    There are no weapons of mass destruction in the desert...
  • kjohnson26kjohnson26  
    Colonist
    Could mean 150 feet? 

    I think it means 150 minutes.
  • cynemacynema  (2 like this)
    Colonist
    That's the 2.5 hour cut!

    That means the deleted and extended scenes are additional to that! No?

  • kjohnson26kjohnson26

    It says 150' of bonus material, it might apply to the additional material, not the length of the film itself. 

    Edit:

    I think that means 150 minutes of bonus material on Disc 1 besides the 2D version of the film.
  • Troym76Troym76  (1 like this)

    Holy shit I hope so but I already have the Alien Anthology Blu-Ray I hope Prom has a self release of the 150 minutes

     

  • kamikazekurtkamikazekurt

    Hopefully the American release will be the same day... and then by the time that's done, there's the ominous date a week and day later.
    my God, it's full of stars!
  • kjohnson26kjohnson26  
    Colonist
    Yeah, I'm not sure if the (150' Bonus) means a 150 minute film plus bonus material or film plus 150 minutes of bonus material.
  • CarrotCarrot  
    SpaceBiscuit
    Don't care about any of the Alien stuff really, since I'm maxed out on those behind the scenes with my anthology

    Not really clear if it's theatrical or extended.,,,
    guess we'll have to wait and see
  • Troym76Troym76  
    Colonist

    Even Ridley Himself said that there was 27 minutes of cutscenes to be in the Blu-Ray but not in the Movie itself leads to him bullshitting us because in another interview he said there was an hour of cut scenes that was omitted for the theatrical release so I think possibly we are gonna get our Directors cut of the movie, I hope so , This would be Epic !!!

     

  • DMLDML

    It looks like the Disc 3 ('Bonus complementary Prometheus') is only included in this set, the US Prometheus 3D or 2D Blu-ray releases don't have a bonus disc as far as I can tell.
  • so this means 10.11.12 is NOT a DVD release then?
  • CarrotCarrot  
    SpaceBiscuit
    No, that was never the BluRay/Dvd release date
    It comes after, which is what led to all the speculation.
  • TerraformerTerraformer

    Ridley Scott said the Special Edition extended edition will be 20 minutes longer with 30 minutes of deleted scenes in the disk menu. Did he lie to us or is he keeping that version for 25 years?

    150" : movie + bonus :) So I don't think it will be a longer cut.

    And ffs, where are all the deleted stuff ? I mean, 15 minutes is good, but wasn't it 20 minutes or more ?
  • MustafuckMustafuck  (1 like this)
    Colonist
    lol, what is this, the old Alien Quadrology set with Prometheus included now?

    Also, where's the director's cut?
  • CarrotCarrot  
    SpaceBiscuit
    I could have sworn extended cut was +27 minutes...

    Hhmmm. The bonus material listed such as the 4 viral videos, "Tests of Noomi Rapace", and "Pre-visualization" add up to way more than 30 minutes (where 119 minutes is the run time of the theatrical cut excluding credits). Meaning the "bonus" in the 150 'bonus could merely indicate there are bonuses. Thus, this 150 ' business could be 150 minutes of the director's/special edition cut.

    Of course, the "bonus" in (150 'bonus) could be an entirely different bonus feature not listed :p

  • kjohnson26kjohnson26

    It also says there is a 120' audio commentary by the director on Disc 1. That should sync up with the film itself so I would think the 2D film on Disc 1 is actually 120'. Perhaps the 119' was rounded up.

    There is a Download: qualifier as the first entry under Disc 1. Some of the extra things could be downloadable from the net and the disc gives access to that material. In particular that probably applies to this:
    Outside the disk: Second Screen App: App iPad Control Blu-ray Remote which gives access to the archives of Peter Weyland (60 '):

    There's the disc 4 listing that says Audio commentary by Ridley Scott (on theatrical version only) which implies the Director's Cut is a given feature on Disc 4 as well :p

    Having looked up the Alien Anthology set on Amazon earlier, the same description is given. Maybe people who actually own this set can confirm the DC is included.

  • kjohnson26kjohnson26

    I think Fox would probably put out the theatrical cut first then wait 3 to 6 months at least before putting out anything like an extended or director's cut of Prometheus. That way they make more money.
