Though the film has not yet made its U.S. theatrical premiere, Amazon is listing both the 3D and 2D versions of Prometheus for Blu-ray pre-order.
Regarding the separate sets, the online retailer lists the 3D version as a Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack and the 2D edition as a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack.
Director Ridley Scott's highly anticipated return to the science-fiction genre - his third such movie after Alien and Blade Runner - stars Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as Elizabeth Shaw, a scientist who, along with a team of researchers and the financial support of an enigmatic businesswoman (Charlize Theron, Monster), embarks on a historic space expedition. The mission's objective: to make contact with the advanced lifeforms that helped create our planet. However, first contact does not go as planned, and the trip quickly becomes a nightmare for all involved, forcing Shaw and the other survivors to fight not just for their own survival, but for the survival of Earth itself.
At this moment, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has not released any of the technical or supplementary specifications for each of the respective HD packages. Furthermore, the distributor has also not set a firm street date for the Blu-rays.
The pre-order cost for the Prometheus 3D disc is currently $34.99 (or 30% off its SRP of $49.99), while the 2D combo pack costs $27.99 (or 30% off its SRP of $39.99).
Prometheus opens today in the U.K. and on June 8th in U.S. theaters.
