Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" comes to digital and disc formats next week, unfortunately though a pirated copy of the film's Blu-ray has already made it onto torrent sites across the internet with Torrent Freak reporting an estimated 250,000 downloads in the first twelve hours.
What those torrents don't have though are all the extras, including the deleted scenes which come with the disc release. New details and photos from those cut scenes have gone online and reportedly include the following:
Stormtrooper Finn's run-in with a Jakku village woman in the opening attack.
Han, Finn, and Chewie face down a squadron of stormtroopers in Maz Kanata's basement.
Kylo Ren leads snowtroopers to the crashed Millennium Falcon at Starkiller Base, and has an emotional remembrance inside.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally coming home! After a grueling 4 month wait, this blockbuster sequel will be available on VOD starting April 1, and then on April 5 it comes to Blu-ray and DVD packed with extra features. Probably the most anticipated of these are the 7 deleted scenes. While we've seen the titles of the footage before, EW has the first look at what hit the cutting room floor, along with details about what we can expect to see. And some of it is pretty cool! About the 7 deleted scenes awaiting fans, director J.J. Abrams had this to say.
"There are so many things that end up getting cut because of the greater good, because of the rhythm of the sequence or the need to get on with it, a sense of redundancy. You don't know any of these things when you're making the movie, of course. It was sometimes »

Now that three months have lapsed since Star Wars: The Force Awakens took theaters by storm, we’re beginning to learn more and more about not only the creative process behind J.J. Abrams’ space opera, but also the content that didn’t quite make the cut.
Prior to release, the director himself estimated that there were about a dozen deleted scenes from The Force Awakens that remained on the cutting room floor and today, Entertainment Weekly has shed light on those sequences in question.

Director: Peter Greenaway
Writer: Peter Greenaway
Before he turns 80 years old and cinema dies, auteur Peter Greenaway has announced his plans to finish up thirty projects in the next seven years or so. He’s whittling away at his goal, last year unveiling his first title in a planned trilogy on Sergei Eisenstein at Berlin, the bombastic and beautiful Eisenstein in Guanajuato. With planned projects on Dutch painter Hieronymous Bosch and more Eisenstein on the way, Greenaway takes a detour in 2016 with Walking to Paris, a portrait of Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi, who walked from Bucharest to Paris in 1903 and 1904. British actor Emun Elliott (who has appeared in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and Exodus: Gods and Kings) stars as Brancusi, while Swiss actress Carla Juri (of the infamous Wetlands (review), 2013) and Scottish actor Gianni Capaldi are also in the cast.
