read there was about 30 minutes that was cut from the final movie and a bunch of that was supposedly Guy Pearce as a young Peter Weyland. I get the feeling that  the DVD, which is supposed to coming out in October, is going to be like the 2001 "Redux" was to  "Apocalypse Now". the added footage in that movie cleared up a LOT of questions from the original 1979 release. 

Scott stated that the home release would feature an extended cut of the film featuring an additional 20 minutes of footage and up to 30 minutes of deleted scenes. probably be a lot of "Oh THAT'S WHY that HAPPENED"

So many questions after seeing this movie.....


1) Opening seen. What the darn? Is it earth? Is he creating life on earth with his dna or destroying it?

2) Was Cpt Vickers indeed a robot (if not, what a shitty "death scene"

3) Is that supposed to be the queen Alien at the end?

4) The space jockey didnt die in his chair, does that mean that isnt the same ship as the beginning of Alien?

Many more questions, just cant think of them right now. Overall, it was ok. Way too many questions and very few great scenes. The c section was pretty nice. Weyland simply being pushed over and dying was stupid. Why did the "engineer" wake up after being out so long and just wanna kill everyone. Why were they creating that stuff to kill presumably us? What were they running from in the hologram. Why the darn would the "researchers" try and touch that snake thing? garbage, I wouldnt do that in my backyard let alone in outer friggin space......

Kinda pisses me off Scott had so long to make this movie and left so much garbage up in the air....coulda been an epic movie. As of now its a C in my book.

ref that read there was about 30 minutes that was cut from the final movie which is supposed to be restored in the DVD due to be released in October. I have a feeling it will be a lot like when Francis Ford Coppola released the 2001 "Redux" of his 1979 Apocalypse Now. the 49 minutes of added footage answered a LOT of questions from the original.

as for Why the darn would the "researchers" try and touch that snake thing? I think that was supposed to be the movie's "the 'facehugger' jumps on Cain" in the original Alien "startle" moment

Was Cpt (?) Vickers (Charlize Theron's character) indeed a robot (if not, what a shitty "death scene"

the Prometheus (film) Wiki page Meredith Vickers cast description questions that also BUT I don't think so only because she has a personal automatic "emergency room" in her quarters AND it's implied she has sex with  Captain Janek near the end of the movie. I'm pretty sure she's just 100% controlling human girl.

Some of the those characters were not believable or relatable. Sometimes less is more as evident from the Charlize Theron's blunder of a role.

I wouldn't mind seeing the extra 30 minutes. I still enjoyed the movie, but not as good as expected.

I think that's the general consensus. decent SciFi BUT NOT up to Ridley Scott "Alien" standard. probably set up for a "sequel" with the ending

interesting article. like they said, DO NOT READ if you haven't seen the movie yet.

I think the "bottom line" is that it's the "first of a series" like the Alien/Aliens franchise
