Blu News: 'Prometheus' Disc Details, Plus a Trailer for 'Roger Rabbit's 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

Blu News: 'Prometheus' Disc Details, Plus a Trailer for 'Roger Rabbit's 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

Jul 05, 2012

We've known for a while that Fox would be releasing Prometheus on Blu-ray October 9, 2012, we even knew what the cover art would look like, but we didn't know the specifics of what the disc(s) would offer fans beyond the movie. And while details of special features are great and all, the only question anyone really cared about was whether or not we'd be getting a longer, perhaps Director's Cut of Ridley Scott's latest. 

Well, now we know. This release of the movie is not a director's cut. It's not even an extended cut. There are 15 minutes of deleted scenes on the disc, but they have not been reinserted in the film.

The details below actually refer to the French release of the film [via Prometheus Forum], but don't let that worry you. It's highly unlikely that a studio as big as Fox would go to the effort of producing the below materials and not include them on all international releases. Things like packaging may change, but you can bet that the American Blu-ray will have the same deleted/alternate scenes, as well as 2 hours of behind-the-scenes featurettes.
