9 Deleted Scenes That Fix WHOPPING Plot Holes

Deleted scenes are pretty much the highlight of the DVD/Blu Ray era.  Yes, occasionally you get a “making of” documentary that isn’t everyone sitting in a circle extolling the brilliance of every other single person on the film crew, but all Blu Rays can’t be the Lord of the Rings Extended Editions.  Deleted scenes give you extra information on the film, its editing process, and can often leave you slackjawed and goggled as to why in the world something was cut from the film in the first place.  For example, The Incredible Hulk is routinely at the bottom of pretty much everyone’s list of the MCU films, but if you watch all the deleted scenes, you quickly come to understand why Edward Norton threw the fit over the final cut of the film that got him replaced by Mark Ruffalo.  Sometimes a deleted scene closes a gaping plot loophole, one you may not have even realized existed.  What Culture has put together a brilliant little manic journey through nine films in which a big plot hole could have been fixed by the inclusion of a single cut scene.

Trailer Time: Sully IMAX Trailer *Brace for Impact!*

On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the “Miracle on the Hudson” when Captain “Sully” Sullenberger glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.

“Sully” also stars Aaron Eckhart (“Olympus Has Fallen,” “The Dark Knight”) as Sully’s co-pilot, Jeff Skiles, and Oscar nominee Laura Linney (“The Savages,” “Kinsey,” Showtime’s “The Big C”) as Sully’s wife, Lorraine Sullenberger. Sully opens September 9, 2016.

Trailer Time: Arrival Trailer #2 (2016) *Why Are They Here?*

*Text from Coming Soon

Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario), the film is based on Ted Chiang’s 1998 novella Story of Your Life with a script with Eric Heisserer (The Thing (2011)). When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – are brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.
“This isn’t a graphic-novel universe or creating a new universe. This happens in our world today, as it exists,” Adams said previously of the grounded approach. “Not having to transport myself to a universe where superheroes exist, which is also fun, really helped me ground the character and the experience.”

Jeremy Renner also stars in the film as a physicist, with the actor saying: “I haven’t played a smart nerdy guy. I thought there was a great challenge in that.”

Renner also spoke about the film’s tone, saying it’s not like a “big Michael Bay alien movie” but instead compared it to the works of Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg. “If you’re a parent, it’s going to wreck you,” he said. “It’s big and there are thriller elements and tension, but it’s going to lean much more into a thinking person’s film.”

Arrival will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 2 before debuting in theaters on November 11.
