There were a lot questions left unanswered at the end of Ridley Scott's Prometheus. As much as I enjoyed the movie, there were a ton of holes and the ending was a bit all over the place. Turns out about 15 minutes of footage was cut from the ending of the film alone, over 35 minutes total. It looks like those deleted scenes will be available for viewing on the Blu-ray being released, which means many of our questions might end up being answered.
Thanks to Bleeding Cool we have a list of names of 14 deleted scenes that reveal a few interesting things--the last one listed is called Paradise, which is the most interesting one to me.
- 00:02:31:16 ARRIVAL OF THE ENGINEERS
- 00:00:58:05 T’IS THE SEASON
- 00:00:42:08 OUR FIRST ALIEN
- 00:00:42:14 SKIN
- 00:01:22:01 WE’RE NOT ALONE ANYMORE
- 00:02:57:01 STRANGE BEDFELLOWS
- 00:01:25:04 HOLLOWAY HUNGOVER
- 00:00:23:12 DAVID’S OBJECTIVE
- 00:03:27:07 JANEK FILLS VICKERS IN
- 00:03:40:12 A KING HAS HIS REIGN
- 00:02:01:24 FITFIELD ATTACKS
- 00:04:06:06 THE ENGINEER SPEAKS
- 00:05:30:04 FINAL BATTLE
- 00:05:05:19 PARADISE
As you can see, "Paradise" takes place after the final battle, which suggests to me that maybe, just maybe, the movie ended with David and Shaw making it to the Engineer planet. If these alien supreme beings or "gods" are from another world, wouldn't that world be heaven? Also referred to as paradise? I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
