20th Century Fox has unveiled the trailer for upcoming Blu-ray release of "Prometheus," promising that "questions will be answered." Judging by the bonus material, many things will be explained, including the direction of the sequel.
The Blu-ray contains over seven hours of bonus material, including an Alternate Opening and Ending, Deleted and Alternate Scenes, access to "Peter Weyland's Files," commentary by directors and writers. It will be available as a 4-Disc Collector's Edition and a 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack.
Check out the trailer below and get "Prometheus" in stores on October 9th.
This is hardly a coincidence that the same scam was used on LOST, written mainly by Lindelof as well. Unable to offer a narration both compelling and satisfying at the same time, he often confuses vague for mysterious and incoherent for "up to interpretation." In LOST they kept explaining things in podcasts, in DVD commentaries and so forth, but rarely in the canon of the show, because they didn't have the skills to organize the mess that took place in their writers room. And now Prometheus, and this same idea is used to promote the blu-rays? Come on Damon, write a story that is self-sufficient, for once.

$10 says a few months after dvd sales dwindle the Ridley Scott apology campaign will start. He'll finally admit that this was not the final product he wanted, and he'll promise the sequel will be much better and more coherent. Oh, and I guarantee he'll blame most of the mess on this sh*tty writer.

Is that a new marketing scheme from the studios? To make you spend extra bucks for the DVD in order to get the answers you were expecting spending money to watch the film at the movies? Well, f*ck that ... i don't care about the answers anymore.
