Prometheus - No Extended Cut for now
Prometheus, the long awaited epic by Ridley Scott, creator of Alien, had fans puzzled beforehand as to whether it's going to be an own movie or a prequel to the Alien franchise. We will not discuss the key plot elements at this point (so be cautious when reading the comment section).
While the film was still in theaters, Ridley Scott confirmed that he's working on an Extended Cut that runs approx. 20 minutes longer. However, with the DVD and Blu-ray coming out soon, fans have to start hoping again since the first releases do not contain a longer cut of the movie. The announcements list enormous amounts of deleted scenes and other bonus materials, though. It's safe to say that the DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D will only feature the R-Rated theatrical cut. At least for now.
It remains unclear what that means for the future. Scott likes to do Extended Cuts of his movies frequently, e.g. Robin Hood (2010), Alien or Kingdom of Heaven. The latter two got the prolonged version some time after the theatrical cut was already released. Let's hope that this strategy will be used for Prometheus, too.
