The Most Expensive Deleted Scenes in Film History
It seems that in Hollywood it doesn't matter whether the scene is ultra-expensive to film since it can still be easily deleted from the movies. Even though this act may seem bizarre to the layman apparently it makes a lot of sense for film makers. It is very common for really expensive scenes to end up being deleted from the editing room in order to speed up the pace of the movie.   “World War Z” director Marc Foster has claimed in his statement that it is highly unlikely the audiences would ever watch the multimillion dollar original ending of his movie. Reportedly the producers chose to re shoot the climax at great cost leaving the initial third act with unfinished visual cost.   Reportedly in Bryan Singer's 2006 sci-fi flick “The Superman Returns”, the alternative opening scene cost a staggering amount of $10 million extra than the original. It therefore featured Superman returning to the remains of his home planet in a unique crystal shaped spaceship.   In an another flick  titled “The Brothers Grim” the director Terry Gilliam admitted that he deleted the most expensive scene of the movie at the suggestion of his old friend Terry Jones. The deleted scene apparently showed CGI trees coming to life and attacking the main leads of the movie.   Reportedly the original ending of the movie “Little Shop of Horrors” was changed to help make it more upbeat. Reportedly the 20 minute sequence that ended up in the waste bin cost its producers around $5 million more than the one that was actually shown to the audience. However the original deleted ending briefly made an appearance in a special edition DVD of the movie before the producers removed it from view.   “Watchmen” is another animated movie which was previously a comic book thriller.  Several scenes were removed from the final version of “Watchmen”. This reportedly went against the wishes of the film’s director since he wanted only a handful of scenes to be left out from the final edited version. The director Zack Snyder reportedly wanted the animated movie to say as close as possible to the source of the original material. However the company didn't comply with his wishes since the movie's running time was going beyond three hours. The projected length of the movie was deemed unacceptable as a result of which several expensive scenes ended up being deleted from the film.
