"Prometheus" Now Available on Digital HD

In a groundbreaking move, 20th Century Fox released Ridley Scott's Prometheus on Digital HD yesterday, several weeks ahead of its October 9th blu-ray/DVD premiere.

It will be interesting to see how this affects the home video market, as physical media continues to be phased out. I'm personally a big fan of physical media and maintaining by blu-ray/DVD library so I've never been a big fan of digital downloads, but as technology continues to evolve they will probably be increasingly prevalent.

Prometheus, which will also be the studio's first UltraViolet title, will be followed similarly by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Ice Age: Continental Drift, The Watch, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. Click here to view the Digital HD release trailer.
