Looks promising. Hopefully the US has something similar, I have already pre-ordered the 3D edition of Prometheus.

Yea Day 1 purchase for me...despite the films imperfections, I really enjoyed it! The extra footage should only make it better.

No amount of trash extras can make this turd worth buying.

Hmm - seems a pretty far cry from his Scott's earlier hopes for a longer cut plus an additional half hour of deleted scenes.

I hope there is a director's cut/extended cut that puts that stuff back in, and not one that is release 6 months after the theatrical version. Ridley Scott's movies almost always improve greatly in the extended version. And Prometheus definitely had at least one spot in the movie that felt like something had been hacked out to trim run time.

Maybe they're saving the director's cut/extended version for a future release...

Yeah I might just cancel my US 3D edition.
France gets 15 extra minutes AND over 2 additional hours of special features before the US edition is even out? FOX must be out of their minds if they expect us to double dip now.

EDIT nevermind this is exactly what we're getting in the US. I still want to know if we'll see an extended cut(I'd really hope to)

If the US gets the same special features, then I'm in, though I'm worried since it has become a habit of the French to have ltos and lots of features that we won't get (e.g.: David Lynch's Mulholland Drive having 2 discs on DVD, the second full of interviews and making-of featurettes).

Only time will tell, but if we're to get the exact same set, it's day 1 for me!

An unnecessary (and overproduced) movie. I was actually more impressed with "The Thing" prequel/remake.

Favorite movie of 2012, this French release looks pretty sweet. Hope the US gets something nearly as good.

I am afraid I have to agree with CandyStalker. I just didn't think this film was very good. It felt to me as if the screenplay was being written during principal photography. I have to say, as I sat there in the cinema, I rolled my eyes several times at the unabashed derivative nature of this film. All it did was make we want to see ALIEN again. A far more cohesive film. Shortly after we had left the theater, as my friends and I sat in a restaurant, we remarked how easily forgettable the film was. I just don't think the extra 15 minutes is going to help. Sorry Ridley.

As others have pointed out, something tells me we will see a "Director's Edition" released on Blu-ray six months after the initial version is released, or perhaps a year later. Ridley Scott, and the studio in question for a particular title, have been known to do that. I am not a fan of double-dipping and this tactic generally has me gun shy persay so I think I will hold off for six months or so, even a year if need be on the off chance we see a more expanded/elaborate edition on Blu-ray later on. I am a huge fan of the Alien series (well, the first two films, with the third being watchable, and the fourth just plain awful) and was anxiously looking forward to Prometheus, but I felt a tad bit disappointed when I left the theater. The film didn't seem overly "complete" in my mind, as if something(s) was missing. The effects were great, but I guess I wanted more story, a better script, and less secondary characters. That was what was so great about the first two Alien films, you got to know each and every one of them, and in some ways connect with them, I just didn't feel that way with any of them in Prometheus. Still, it's a wait and see approach for me with this Blu-ray title, and I just hope Scott nails the Blade Runner sequel, hopefully Harrison Ford will star, I just can't imagine a Blade Runner film without him.

I know we hope that a true Extended or Directors cut will emerge 6-months later but I wouldn't hold my breath. It took sometime for the Alien, Kingdom of Heaven (which like Prometheus should never have been released without the extra footage), and Gladiator. I would guess 1-2 years until the true Extended/Directors is released so folks will be more inclined to double-blu-ray-dip. By the way I watched an interview with Sir Ridley and he stated everyone of his films is in fact the "Directors" cut when released in theaters. I would have asked him why he signs off and adds commentary to all his "Directors/Extended" editions that follow the original home video release. Is it to pad ones paycheck??? Hmmmm. Whoever was that weasel exec that decided it was a good idea to re-release films with extended footage and force (no they don't have a gun to their head but come on!) fanatical fans should win a Nobel for economics or something.

The US release will mostly be Region A locked whilst the International releases being Region Free.

Aliens this ain't, both in the type of story and the impact it makes on you. This movie is forgettable, and probably only ranks 3rd at best if you include all the Alien films. Very disappointing.

Better than the AVP "movies," at least. Saw it in the theater and probably will be unable to refrain from purchasing, if only to satisfy my inner nerd, who admittedly was hoping for more. At its surface this movie was instantly forgettable, and might be the first movie I've seen which has stoked my interest more AFTER having seen it, thanks to message boards and some quite perceptive (and unashamed) nerd-viewers' insights.
