The original cut of After Earth was 130 minutes long, featuring more backstory on the decline of Earth and the formation of Nova Prime, as well as more scenes with Isabelle Fuhrman, Kristoph Hivju, and Lincoln Lewis. However, this cut was received poorly by audiences at test screenings, so many of these scenes were cut out and the film was heavily re-edited.
Everything is terrible.

M. Night Shyamalan's original first draft of The Last Airbender included all the episodes of the show's first season, which added up to a runtime of over seven hours. In contrast, the finished film is 1 hour and 43 minutes long.

The swimming lesson scene in Moonlight is genuine in that Mahershala Ali was legitimately teaching Alex Hibbert how to swim.

Not a bad choice at the time, but I'm glad we got Bridgette Wilson as Sonya.

Cary Fukunaga & Chase Palmer's script for It contained scenes involving children so sexual in nature that child actors were pulled out of auditioning by their parents after reading the script. Executives at Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema asked Fukunaga to rewrite these scenes, but he felt they were so important to the spirit of the book that he chose to leave the project instead. Afterwards, Andy Muschietti, who was chosen as the new director to replace Fukunaga, pitched a film that would use most of Fukunaga & Palmer's script, but with more famous scenes from the book added. While Muschietti did most of the rewrite himself, the final shooting script was touched up by Annabelle writer Gary Dauberman to get the film back on the original budget. In the end, Palmer, Fukunaga, and Dauberman were given screenplay credits, while Muschietti and another writer, David Kajganich, were uncredited.

Honestly, I don't think I could enjoy watching a pre-teen gangbang... that was definitely one of the worse parts.  Hope they cut that from the movie.

Not the first but ah if there were several of them, I might consider it.

I agree with that.  The name works more for a nickname, though right?  Like, his legal name should be Bob or something, but his nickname is Baloo.  In honor of the Jungle Book.

A big plus would be that ah balooterfie@gmail.com probably hasn't been claimed yet.
