The missing 15 minutes of Prometheus

Posted by Starr Keshet

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus received mixed reviews when it hit theaters. Some gushing genre fans absolutely loved the film, while others loudly claimed it lacked soul and personality. 



Hell, we all know it’s all to easy to criticize a film, especially one hyped as much as Prometheus, but there is one thing most of us can probably agree on: the need for more footage. 



And  extra footage there will be aplenty on the DVD/Blu-ray release of Prometheus, specifically, over 30 minutes, with 15 minutes of said footage originally cut from the last third of the film.

However, as Janice Kay of ScienceFiction.com notes, like most deleted scenes, the missing footage is probably not going to be reinstated or integrated back into the film itself. 

Nevertheless, it is definitely something to look forward to, even if the missing minutes have to be watched separately as a feature.

Now as an added bonus, the folks over at Bleeding Cool managed to get their hands on the full list of deleted scenes, which reads as follows:

00:02:31:16 ARRIVAL OF THE ENGINEERS
00:00:58:05 T’IS THE SEASON
