More Prometheus stuff...
Do you remember the following?
Fox studio chief TOM ROTHMAN: "This I can tell you and I can tell all the fans, not one frame will be cut. The movie will be what it should be. We will not cut a frame of the film," he promised. "We will stand behind it 100 percent and if that means it's an R, then so be it, because not an ounce, not a percentage are we going to compromise the film."
Well, now director RIDLEY SCOTT is talking about an extended version...
SCOTT: This is fundamentally the director’s cut. But there will be half an hour of stuff on the menu because people are so into films - how they’re made, how they’re set up, and the rejections in it. That’s why it’s fascinating. So this will all go on to the menu.
Well I’m curious about the deleted scenes. Specifically in this film, Noomi Rapace mentioned maybe there was a fight scene... [I've omitted the next bit as it's a spoiler]
SCOTT: The [spoiler] fight scene was pretty good. It will definitely go on the menu. It won’t go on the long version... [I've omitted the next bit as it's a spoiler]
You’re going to do an extended cut on the Blu-ray/DVD. Is it a lot longer?
SCOTT: Twenty minutes.

Of course, they could both be telling porkies.
There's a fair few in-movie and promo references to the epic Lawrence of Arabia movie, maybe Rothman and Scott should give thought to Mr. Dryden's words:
"A man who tells lies, like me, merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it."
