“The cut that you’re gonna see in cinemas…it’s always the director’s cut, really.”

That’s Ridley Scott speaking to the press at a Prometheus event in Paris. Fortunately it’s in English, although it only has the appearance of plain speak. Scott has taken advantage of home entertainment by releasing director’s cuts in the past (the most famous/biggest improvement being Kingdom of Heaven), so it’s not exactly obvious how theater cuts are always the director’s cut.

However, it’s great news to see that Scott will be delivering his vision onto the big screen since he hasn’t always been able to. Plus, he’s confirming that the cut is around the 2 hour mark. That might be arbitrary, but it’s a welcome change in a world where big blockbusters are becoming more and more bloated (and yet, way too often, without substance to back up the hours).
