'Transformers: Dark of the Moon's' Shia LaBeouf Hints at What Extras May Be on DVD
Shia LaBeouf says there's tons of extra scenes from Transformers: Dark of the Moon that never ended up in the version in theaters now. So expect a lot of deleted scenes in the DVD.
"Because we're 3-D, you're shooting digital all the time," LaBeouf told MTV News. "The beauty for us is, let's say I'm doing a scene with [John] Malkovich or Frances [McDormand] or [Patrick] Dempsey or even Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] — we'd just riff. You've got hours and hours of all that ... where you're just riffing and ad libbing and trying to come up with lines."
The theater version, which broke July 4 box office records, is two hours and 40 minutes long.
One scene that was recently cut features Malkovich leaving a meeting with LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
"It was just a little tiny thing where I go back to Rosie after I leave the apartment and try to get her number," Malkovich told MTV News. "That's the kind of thing that could be true to the character and could not be true to the character — hard to say — but is utterly superfluous to the forward movement of the film."
"You're a figure in someone else's dream, and however their dream plays out is the way it is," he added, referring to director Michael Bay.
Huntington-Whitley says that she didn't think Bay left out anything on the cutting-room floor.
"I trust Michael so much on his judgment," she said. "He's made every single castmember look fantastic in this movie, and it's a long film, so he really has to choose the best scenes and what makes sense to the story line."
