DVD extras are something very common in todays market. Todays dvd's usually include special features that reveal all the juicy details of how the movie was made, from the outtakes and bloopers, to what the cast had for lunch as they filmed, these edited scenes are part of what makes DVD extras special. These deleted scenes can be cut from a film for various reasons but still make for an entertaining watch. Today, studios will always include them as an extra, but there was a time when it wasnt like this.
Deleted Scenes use to be something that stayed on the cutting room floor, only seen by the people behind the cameras. Some deleted scenes have never been show anywhere, and I decided to put these on this post I thought this would make for some fun reading. So here are some deleted scenes from a couple of movies. You've probably seen these movies...but you've probably never seen these deleted scenes!
Bill and Teds Bogus Journey (1991)- This is one of the best examples of deleted scenes that not many have seen. If you remember correctly, on this movie Bill and Ted end up going to hell and reliving some of their worst nightmares. Bill faces a Granny that he hated, Ted faces the easter bunny, which wants to make him pay for having stolen his brothers easter basket! And both of them face a Lt. in a military school that makes them do infinity push ups! But soon after, Bill and Ted escape Hell and we never see these nightmares again.
But, it wasnt always meant to be this way. At one point in the film, after they go and buy supplies to make the "good robot us's" evil Bill and evil Ted find a way to capture these nightmares on these containers and unleash them once again on the good Bill and Ted. So, on their way to the battle of the bands an awesome thing happens! The easter bunny attacks them again and rips the vans roof clean off! When Bill and Ted's get off the van they realize they have to face once again their nightmares! The bunny, the granny and the Lieutenant!
These deleted scenes are pretty cool and were probably deleted simply because they were deamed too scary by the producers, and they wanted to market this one to kids and teenagers. You know this one was being marketed towards kids because they had a Bill and Ted Saturday cartoon show, and a comic book adaptation of the movie, which was actually a decent comic adaptation, and includes all these deleted scenes that Im showing you right here. Marvel Comics even did a regular monthly comic book based on Bill and Teds adventures called Bill and Teds Excellent Comic Book. Heres the cover of the comic book adaptation which I highly recommend:
And this is a cover of the second issue of Bill and Teds Excellent Comic Book (which I am a proud owner of!)
And here are some pics of the deleted scenes:
Evil Bill and Ted unleash Good Bill and Ted's Nightmares upon them!
The Giant Easter Bunny Stikes!
Bill and Ted's face off with their nightmares...literally!
Looking at this giant demonic bunny makes me wish it had not been cut out of the film!
An extra deleted scene has Bill and Ted in Hell. Satan has them chopping up rocks with a sledgehammer and they kind of like it! Suddenly, a demon stands next to them and eats a rat! Yet they dont find it repulsive, the actually find it cool, and they ask him to do it again! You can get a glimpse of this deleted scene on the films official trailer.
