Twentieth Century Fox has been accepting pre-orders via Amazon.com for the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray editions of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus since the day the film debuted theatrically back in early June. What we haven’t known is a release date, at least until now.
Amazon.com has updated their Prometheus Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray pre-order listing with an October 11, 2012 release date. That’s a little under two months from now until Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and the rest of the Prometheus ship crew examine an ancient alien ship on an alien planet in hopes of answering the age-old question “who created mankind?”
A quick glance at the calendar shows that October 11 falls on a Thursday. Tuesday is the traditional date for new home video releases so we’ll have to keep our eyes open for a potential shift forward or backward a couple days.
As was recently revealed, the home video release of Prometheus is expected to include over 30 minutes of deleted scenes. These scenes are not expected to be inserted back into the film for a definitive director’s cut. At minimum the 14 scenes will be available to view and will hopefully fill in some of the story’s holes.
We’ll have the final word on the Prometheus Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray release to share when Fox makes their official announcement.
