41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers.

Faye Brookes' nervous lesbian smooch

'Coronation Street's Faye Brookes was crippled with nerves when she shot her first ever lesbian kiss. The 28-year-old actress joined the long-running soap last September as sex siren Kate Connor and, although she has a catalogue of acting experience under her belt, she was terrified when she had to lock lips with Rhea Bailey, who plays her soldier fiancée Caz, for their steamy love story.

Rhea Bailey happy to swap Los Angeles for Coronation Street

Rhea Bailey has no regrets about swapping Los Angeles for 'Coronation Street'. The 32-year-old actress - who stars as Kate Connor's lesbian fiancée Caz in the soap - has spent the past five years trying to establish herself in Hollywood, but ultimately landed a life-changing role when she was visiting her mum back in Leeds. She shared: ''I'd spent five years in La and I'd come close to three life-changing acting jobs this year. But when they didn't land I felt I needed to take a break for the summer.

Specialty Box Office Preview: ‘The Trip To Italy’, ‘Frank’, ‘Jealousy’, ‘Life After Beth’, ‘Fort McCoy’

Specialty Box Office Preview: ‘The Trip To Italy’, ‘Frank’, ‘Jealousy’, ‘Life After Beth’, ‘Fort McCoy’
In this weekend’s specialty box-office debuts, IFC Films hopes to replicate the critical and commercial success of Michael Winterbottom’s first amusing little travelogue/talker of a feature, The Trip, with a semi-sequel, The Trip To Italy. The second Trip again stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon; the entertainingly garrulous pair on yet another jaunt across restaurants, countryside and philosophy. The latest Trip will bow in NYC and La this weekend after a successful Australian run earlier this summer (or their winter).

Frank, a British-Irish-American drama from Magnolia Pictures featuring Michael Fassbender that had runs at Sundance and SXSW, bows in only one U.S. theater this weekend. Frank centers on an eccentric band, giving Fassy fans a chance to hear the Oscar-nominated actor sing, albeit from behind a mask (he’s not bad, actually).

Other notable new films include Philippe Garrel‘s Jealousy, which Distrib Films will expand

Review: WWII Drama 'Fort McCoy' Starring Eric Stoltz, Camryn Manheim, Seymour Cassel And More

WWII continues to be rich dramatic territory for filmmakers for a number of reasons, not only because it's one of the most important events in modern history, but also due to the many avenues from which a global conflagration can be viewed. But writer and co-director Kate Connor's debut feature "Fort McCoy" is an example of what happens when you try to shoehorn as many topics and themes from WWII as you can into one movie. Overstuffed, trite and empty, "Fort McCoy" attempts to mix heavy drama, slapstick comedy and romance in the unwieldy package of a coming of age story set in the summer of 1944. The film flounders on all fronts, proffering a naive and simplistic view of the murky territory between good and evil. It's hard to give the movie a logline, as there's not so much of a single defined plot, but rather many underdeveloped subplots

Gone Doggy Gone Movie Review
Title: Gone Doggy Gone Directors: Kasi Brown, Brandon Walter Starring: Shaina Vorspan, Kasi Brown, Brandon Walter, Kate Connor, Jeff Sloniker, Richard Riehle, Jordan Hendricks An amusing, madcap blend of social satire, character comedy and well-worn road trip tropes, ”Gone Doggy Gone,” co-written and directed by Kasi Brown and Brandon Walter, unfolds against the backdrop of a kidnapped canine. The low-budget indie film, playing this Friday at the Dances With Films Festival in Los Angeles, effectively winds up a bunch of characters who are by degrees self-centered, delusional and inept, and then spends the remainder of its 89-minute running time bouncing them off one another at odd angles, like rubber balls in a stairwell.

The Crazy World Of ‘Terminator’ Time Travel

Ashley Miller and Zack Stenz are going to bring Terminator back to TV to go along with the reboot in Paramount’s attempt at a Marvel-like unified franchise.

The thing is, Terminator already has a bunch of time travel going on, the very thing that is going to revitalize the X-Universe.

So, in honor of a bunch of crazy new time travel, let’s look at the current state of the Terminator Timelines. They are many and they are confusing.

[Author's Note: Tweet screencaps are read bottom to top].

I archived this conversation because you do Not f*ck with Terminator timelines.

In order to discuss how this works, we’re going to be discussing a certain version of time travel that I will now try to explain in the simplest way possible: bullet’d assumptions:

Assumption One: There is no God. At least not one that controls Fate. When someone dies in the Terminator Universe, no one

Savannah Fest Review: Eric Stoltz-Starring 'Fort McCoy' A Schmaltzy, Contrived WWII Drama

WWII continues to be rich dramatic territory for filmmakers for a number of reasons, not only because it's one of the most important events in modern history, but also due to the many avenues from which those years can be viewed. But writer and co-director Kate Connor's debut feature "Fort McCoy" is an example of what happens when you try to shoehorn as many topics and themes from WWII as you can into one movie. Overstuffed yet trite and empty, "Fort McCoy" attempts to mix heavy drama, slapstick comedy and romance all in the wrappings of a coming of age tale set in the summer of 1944, but flounders on all fronts, resulting in a picture that offers a rather naive and simplistic view of the murky territory between good and evil.

Troll Hunter Director Signs On for Carpe Demon



Troll Hunter director Andre Øvredal has signed on to his first Hollywood feature film. Empire reports that the Norwegian director is attached to direct Carpe Demon: The Adventures Of A Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom, which is being adapted from Julie Kenner's book.

The project reminds me of an adult version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Its story follows "Kate Connor, a woman living a life of suburban domesticity and trying to put her secret past as a slayer of demons firmly behind her. Except that her plan comes undone when underworld denizens start surfacing in her adopted hometown of San Diablo."

The book is the first of five installments to date, with Carpe Demon being followed by California Demon, Demons Are Forever, Deja Demon, and Demon Ex Machina. Dan and Kevin Hagerman (Hotel Transylvania) penned the screenplay. A start date and cast have yet to be announced.

'Trollhunter' Director Lands Soccer Mom Action Flick 'Carpe Demon'

With found footage movies like Chronicle and Project X hitting theaters recently, there's one that might have slipped past your radar - a Norwegian film called Trollhunter. The handheld mockumentary followed a group of kids through the countryside as they hunted trolls, and the film (now on Netflix Instant) had a quiet release last year. That film's director, Andre Øvredal, has just has a Hollywood project, and he's staying in the fantasy realm with this one, too. Empire reports he'll be adapting Julie Kenner's best-seller Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom and Chris Columbus is producing. Carpe Demon will follow housewife Kate Connor while she keeps her demon-hunting past a secret from her family and deals with a new threat at the same time. We can only presume that this is the first in a planned franchise, since Carpe Demon is the first book in a series

‘TrollHunter’ Helmer Andre Ovredal Comes to Hollywood With ‘Carpe Demon’

André Øvredal put out a confident and well-crafted solo debut with 2011′s TrollHunter, the kind of foreign film with enough international appeal to get those American remake rights set up with a big studio. We can (and did) rightfully grumble about the plans to take what worked just fine with subtitles, remove the arduous task of reading, and pack some stars in, but there is one silver lining to this small cloud: Øvredal gets his foot in Hollywood’s door.

Chris Columbus, producer behind the TrollHunter remake, will also throw his weight around for the man’s American debut, which Moviehole (via ThePlaylist) tells us is the film adaptation of Julie Kenner‘s Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom. Said to have the “the fun and punchy tone” of Øvredal‘s last effort — a bigger budget presumably and hopefully notwithstanding — Demon centers on, as the title would indicate,

'Trollhunter' Director Andre Øvredal To Make Hollywood Debut With 'Carpe Demon: Adventures Of A Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom'

With international genre cinema currently in a very healthy state, Hollywood executives are spoiled for choices when it comes to finding foreign filmmakers to bring something fresh to U.S. studio fare. Indeed, stick your head in a multiplex these days and it's hard to find a movie that isn't directed by someone who made their name with a relatively low-budget European horror or crime flick, from "Let The Right One In" director Tomas Alfredson's "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" to "Snabba Cash" helmer Daniel Espinosa's "Safe House."

It's showing no sign of letting up anytime soon, with upcoming fare like "The Cold Light of Day," "Lockout" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" all coming from those who've made their names abroad first. And the latest to join them is Andre Øvredal, the Norwegian director who first made waves with the sleeper hit "Trollhunter" last year.

Trollhunter Director Andre Ovredal Set For Carpe Demon

So, let's say that you're a young Norwegian director whose debut film became something of a cult phenomenon among those with a taste for horror comedies, so much so that it is currently being guided towards a Us remake by the guy who wrote The Goonies and Gremlins. What next? Simple enough: You sign up to direct your first English language film - also a horror comedy - with that same guy producing.And that's exactly what Trollhunter director Andre Ovredal has done, signing up to direct a Christopher Columbus produced adaptation of Julie Kenner's novel Carpe Demon.Lots of women put their careers aside once the kids come along. Kate Connor, for instance, hasn't hunted a demon in ages. That must be why she missed...

Troll Hunter Director Seizes Carpe Demon
It's not unusual for directors of breakout international hits to be lured to Hollywood, and Troll Hunter director Andre Øvredal is the latest to join the club. He's just signed on for Carpe Demon: The Adventures Of A Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom, adapted from the book by Julie Kenner. First published in 2005, the novel is the first in a series (franchise!) about Kate Connor, a woman living a life of suburban domesticity and trying to put her secret past as a slayer of demons firmly behind her. Except that her plan comes undone when underworld denizens start surfacing in her adopted hometown of San Diablo (well, with that name she really should have known).In short, it's a kind of Buffy-as-grown-up affair: Whatever Happened To Buffy?, if you like. There are five instalments to date, with Carpe Demon being followed by California Demon, Demons Are Forever, Deja Demon and Demon Ex Machina.

Trollhunter Director To Hunt Demons With A Soccer Mom

When you direct a movie with a title like “Trollhunter” it isn’t a huge jump to imagine directing something called “Carpe Demon: The Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom”. I can see some correlation. And that is exactly what Andre Overdal is going to do. “Carpe Demon”, which also happens to be the name of an episode of “Charmed” (don’t ask me how I know that), is based on a novel by Julie Kenner, part of the “Kate Connor, Demon Hunter” series. You get a good idea of what the story is all about from the title, the major points anyway, but the tagline is pretty good: “Carpools. Crabgrass. Creatures from the depths of hell. Suburbia has its problems too…” Here’s what Barnes and Noble has to say about the book: Lots of women put their careers aside once the kids come along. Kate Connor, for instance,

Fort McCoy – Sliff Review

Review by Dana Jung

Most people don.t know, or at least know very little, about the Pow camps that the United States

maintained during World War II. Numbering in the hundreds, in nearly every state of the Union, these

camps at their peak housed almost half a million German and Japanese prisoners. Films based on these

camps have been few (Summer Of My German Soldier, Farewell To Manzanar, Come See The

Paradise) and mostly grim reminders of a dark period in American history. Fort McCoy, a new movie

co-directed by Michael Worth and writer/star Kate Connor, tells a fact-based story set against the

backdrop of the Army base of the title, of one summer in the life of an American family, circa 1944.

The Stirns move to Fort McCoy, Wisconsin when the father, Frank (Eric Stoltz), takes a position as a

barber for the Army base. With his wife Ruby (Connor), sister-in-law Anna,
