One of the biggest I can think of the Tumbler crashing into the exploded street and flipping over. Not to mention the footage of the turret Tumbler shooting City Hall and the regular Tumbler driving up the steps while it shoots.
Damn. I loved the shot with the tumbler shooting and when the turret is rising. Is it another take or is it not shown at all? There was a shot in the mountain dew commercial where it shows the turret rising. Is that in the movie?
Sadly we only know the Foley scene was cut because we had that photo. Every movie has tons of scenes cut. It seems only ones like this get flack for doing it for some reason. It's part of good movie editing. You have to let some stuff go. Trim the fat.
There are shots of the turret rising on the tumbler and firing at various things. However that shot from the trailers and tv spots of it at the base of city hall firing at the pillars isn't in the movie.
I get the editing process, but to dig up a large portion of a city street and throw out all the hard work that seemed to go into that tumbler stunt. Sure it didn't effect the story, it just seems so wasted to cut something that had so much effort go into it.
Trailers and tv spots are deceiving. I remember BB trailers and tv spots had cool dialogue from Bruce yet it was never featured in the movie. Rises had some lines where the delivery was different than that of the trailers also. Obviously, Nolan wasn't finished with the film until these last few months. I would love a directors cut with an alternative ending but I know that won't happen.
I get this feeling maybe this time around we may get a director's cut (though it doesn't seem very Nolan) with all the action shots not seen as a bonus. I remember when they showed Foley on the ground, I just thought to myself, "that would have literally taken one second to show that scene, why did they cut it lol"
Here it is in case anyone missed the full shot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yucv7GB_lRo
BB - Batman standing atop Wayne Tower (back to camera), spreads wings and jumps off ... would have been right before Gordon sees him glide over after the monorail crash
TDK - Batman running atop the cop cars before leaving to save Rachel
TDKR - all the 'reaction' shots cut in to the Bane/Batman sewer fight ... I don't need to see the guy with the beard watching. Or in the final battle scene, cutting some of Batman's approach to meeting Bane, and then immediately cutting away once they start fighting (thankfully, much of that fight was caught on camera by people around the set)
