Brief Synopsis:
This fanedit has a completely new opening, and deleted scenes have been re-intergrated from the 4-disc Blu-ray set. All new material has been color corrected, scored, and VFX added to the deleted scenes that were originally not finished in post-production.

This edition removes and adds many things, giving some much needed character motivation/development, and a much stronger narrative that the original theatrical cut was lacking.
I really liked Prometheus, but had a lot of issues. I really did not like the opening of the film, I felt showing the Engineers right from the start was not a great choice, it is an awesome looking shot, but I felt it killed all of the suspense of what why the crew is travelling to the planet, and what they are looking for. They should've been revealed at the same time that the crew first sees them.

Also showing Shaw and Halloway finding the map in the caves I felt was also unnecessary, because they talk about it again during their mission briefing, it took too long to get the film going, and introduce the crew of the Prometheus.

I also thought a handful of the deleted scenes (not all of them) from the Blu-ray were actually great scenes of character development and more tense, and some of them explain some of the character motivations later on in the movie. My goal in doing this was to try and make a version of Prometheus that was more cohesive, and had more surprises than the original theatrical version.

I find this to be my favourite edit of Prometheus. The deleted scenes are tastefully seamlessly integrated, and other erroneous plot details are left out. However I found the right channel to be slightly louder than the left, and the left channel seemed to have some sort of very slight echo/reverb. Not sure exactly what is going on, but I could tell something was off. I noticed it, but it did not really affect the viewing experience. In the infamous scene where Shaw runs in front of the rolling donut ship, there is a clip of her as she turns around and then in the next shot she turns around again. That was the only time I noticed any sort of issue!

Even despite these minor issues, I still really enjoy this edit. It is unfortunate that the editor is no longer active here!
