23 Perception-Changing Deleted Movie Scenes

Filmmaking is an arduous process, especially once you get to the post-production phase. Editing down months of footage into a final cut of the movie can often lead to difficult decisions to cut out, remove and/or redo entire scenes. Some of the reasons may be for pacing, redundancy, tonal inconsistency, or negative test-audience reactions. It’s a shame, given how often many of these scenes end up changing audiences’ perspectives on characters and re-contextualize other scenes. However, the end result is that these scenes are left on the cutting room floor to either be added in a later director’s cut edition, or as a bonus extra on the home video release. Here are 23 deleted and/or alternate scenes that could’ve changed films for the better. ~Paolo Maquiraya
