Watch: 'Prometheus' Deleted Scenes Reveal the Engineer Speaking and More

Sep 18, 2012

There was a lot of anticipation building up to the release of Ridley Scott's Prometheus — before and during the film. If you haven't seen the film yet, consider this your spoiler warning. Several scenes had us holding our breath, but one of the key moments in the space epic was finding out more about Alien's "Space Jockey" — the pilot who never completed his mission, with Xenomorph eggs in tow. 

In Prometheus, we learn more about these Engineers — the oldest extraterrestrial life-forms — and during a tense scene with android David (Michael Fassbender) and several crew members, we watch a reanimated Engineer respond to his awakening. Weyland Corp.'s founder and CEO Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) has been aboard the ship in stasis, waiting to meet the strange humanoids — at the Prometheus crew's expense, of course. He wants to find out the secret to eternal life from the Engineer, and when David brings him to the resurrected being, things don't exactly go as planned. The hulking, silent extraterrestrial responds to David's inquiry by tearing his head off, and all hell breaks loose.

Several deleted scenes show us an alternative version of the big moment — one in which the Engineer speaks, and the other where Peter Weyland demonstrates he has a massive ego. Watch them both below to tide you over until the October 11 Blu-ray release.

Oh, and if you're still not sure what Peter said to the Engineer, website Geekosystem had the translation: "The line that David speaks to the Engineer (which is from a longer sequence that didn’t make the final edit) is as follows: /ida hman?m a? kja nam?tuh zd?:taha/…/gh??vah-pjorn-?ttham sas da:t? kredah/ A serviceable translation into English is: 'This man is here because he does not want to die. He believes you can give him more life.'"

Now we'll need a translation for the Engineer it seems ...
