Star Trek Into Darkness Deleted Scene - The Harewoods
so…this isn’t in the movie, but Kirk staring at Carol in her undies and Kirk banging two catgirls is clearly more important.
Priorities of Jar Jar and Co., y’all >_>
And obviously clearly more relevant to the plot and Kirk’s character arc
What I can’t understand is that they wrote and filmed these scenes, which (a) do a very important job of fleshing out Kirk’s character as growing up and growing into his role as captain and (b) show us the family at the end who triggered all the events at the start, so that the little girl and her mother get to be more than disposable elements of Khan’s Roaring Rampage of Vengeance.
Then they cut these for the sake of ‘Kirk in bed with two alien chicks’ and ‘Carol shows us her matching bra and knickers’.
I genuinely don’t get it: if all they think of Kirk’s character is “ladies’ man”, why write these scenes? On the other hand, if they realise that these are important to the audience’s understanding of the characters and the plot, why drop them?
But literally though.
This scene was written. This scene was filmed.
Then someone sat down while the thing was in Avid or Final Cut or Premiere and said, “Nahh. This is BORING.”
Like seeing Kirk ogle a colleague undressing for the SECOND MOVIE IN A ROW wasn’t boring and redundant as hell.
But this crucial part of his character development? Apparently the audience wouldn’t care to see the maturation of the protagonist of the film they just sat down for two hours to watch.
