There are multiple scenes in the theatrical trailer not found in the finished release:
  • Beatrice standing with her back against the side of an escalator wearing a golden dress.


  • During the first date in the restaurant she places Alan's hand on her chest to feel her heart instead of just kissing his hand. She asks "Can you feel it?". He excitedly answers yes before she corrects him with "Not my breast, my heart".


  • A scene where Beatrice implores Alan to "say you love me, whatever happens" at Alan's boathouse.


  • After the first sex scene she tells Alan "you have to save me" whilst lying in bed facing away from him and looking into the camera.


  • A scene with Beatrice and Bruno fist bumping each other outside the cafĂ©.


  • After visiting Mrs. Sturge Beatrice stops and screams "B Monkey read my name" in public whilst gesticulating wildly.


  • When Frank arrives at the cottage his reflection can be seen in his car door while he calls for Beatrice by yelling "B Monkey".


  • Paul's white car speeding out of control in a field before bursting into flames when it hits a wall. This is interspersed with shots of Beatrice screaming "No" whilst reaching out with one arm, a shot from behind her with the car in flames and finally with a shot of her face and tears flowing down it. This would seem to be an alternate ending.
