Not huge numbers but it looks like it did make money.

And does it have to be $200 million? I'm sure Ridley can do a pretty good job with less money.

I think it's more of the franchise needing a sequel more than a result of Prometheus' box office performance which was good though certainly not great. If you go by the 3x rule it made less than 20 million profit. I loved it so it's good news to me a sequel is in the works.
It's gonna be a hell of a ride. I'm ready. .

I think it probably made a lot of money on blu ray and dvd too.

I wouldn't be surprised if Fox insisted on PG-13 this time around, with an unrated cut on BD. We were supposed to get an extended cut of the original too. I'd be very interested to see that.

All of the scenes that would have been included in an extended cut were included on the Blu-ray -- about 30 minutes of deleted scenes.  I read somewhere that Ridley Scott changed his mind about doing an extended cut as he felt the theatrical version was his "director's cut".  I really enjoyed Prometheus as is, but I think at least some of those scenes would have added to the film.
