Lately do you feel that by the time movie’s home release actually hits Blu-ray or DVD that you’ve seen most, if not all, of the worthwhile bonus features? The build-up for big movies on disc has begun to rival that of the theatrical releases themselves. The Avengers is a prime example of this, and Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is keeping this trend alive. We’ve seen a couple of deleted moments and extras from the film already, and now comes another behind-the-scenes video of Scott dropping some surprises on his cast.
Love it or hate it story/plot/character wise, the look of Prometheus is pretty spectacular. On set, Scott’s use of practical sets and effects when possible provided him ample opportunity to pull real fear out of his actors. An old school approach, he rigged a prop corpse in order to capture real-life fear on film. You can see the clip over at io9.
