Synopsis

Release Date:

October 9,2012

Also available on DVD and Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack!

Prometheus is a stunning gorgeous film to look at, and a frustratingly flawed film to watch. Visually, Ridley Scott is at the top of his game but no matter what he pulls from his very large bag of tricks, the films script continually lets him down. Characters often seem to take actions for no other reason than to service a somewhat confusing plot and thus you lose all real attachment to them, as they quickly begin to feel less like real people you would care about, and more like pieces being moved around an elaborately carved chess board. While Prometheus is definitely enjoyable and filled with many great moments, one ultimately is left feeling it could have (and should have) been something so much more. While some of the deleted and alternate scenes give you an idea of the direction the film was trying to take, they don't really enlighten one much more than the theatrical cut of the film. I enjoyed Prometheus on blu-ray, but I wanted to love it!

Renowned director Ridley Scott takes fans on a gripping sci-fi adventure that “kicks ass so hard and often that it's impossible not to be thrilled by it” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Launching into space to discover the mysterious creators of the human race, the “genuinely epic” (Tom Long, Detroit News) film, PROMETHEUS, debuts globally on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD October 9 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. An unmatched home entertainment experience, watch the highly-anticipated blockbuster hit in the format it was meant to be viewed, stunning 3D high-definition.

Written by Damon Lindelof (“Lost”) and Jon Spaihts, PROMETHEUS features outstanding performances by Academy Award® winner* Charlize Theron (Monster), Golden Globe®-nominee* Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds), Guy Pearce (Memento), Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Logan Marshall-Green (Devil).

Archeologist couple Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Marshall-Green) discover a star map that they interpret as an invitation from humanity's forerunners, the “Engineers.” Determined to find out more about them, the couple boards the scientific vessel Prometheus, created and funded by Peter Weyland (Pearce), CEO of Weyland Corporation. Lead by mission director Meredith Vickers (Theron) and monitored by Weyland’s android David (Fassbender), the team of explorers find a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth and embark on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe where they fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Loaded with over seven hours of bonus material, the PROMETHEUS 4-Disc Collector’s Edition and 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack feature the original theatrical release and are available in premium packaging.  Fans can get the ultimate Prometheus experience with an Alternate Opening and Ending, Deleted and Alternate Scenes, access to “Peter Weyland’s Files,” commentary by directors and writers, a cutting-edge Prometheus Weyland Corp. Archive Second Screen App and more!
