Blade: Trinity: In a recent interview with SciFi Wire, the man bringing the world the 3rd Blade talked about how he's bringing back elements previously ditched from the plotlines of the 2 previous films...

"One of the things I did was I put scenes in this movie that were ... cut out from the first two films," Goyer said in an interview while editing the movie at Henson Studios in Hollywood.

In 1998's original Blade, the villainous Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) was supposed to show Karen Jensen (N'Bushe Wright) a lab in which humans are kept in comas and farmed for their blood. The scene was shot, but cut out of the movie, and Goyer said he recreated it and enhanced it for Blade: Trinity. "I decided to do that scene, but like a hundred times bigger," he said. "There were only four bodies or something like that [the first time around], and so we kind of did that version of the movie, but there's literally thousands and thousands of bodies. Its just really big."

Goyer also initially scripted a scene featuring Blade racing his black 1968 Dodge Charger, but it wasn't filmed for budgetary reasons and because the production moved to Prague. "We never really used the Charger in any real kind of action sequences, and I always loved that sequence," Goyer said. So "I literally took that nine-, 10-page sequence and made it the beginning of this movie. It was its own thing, and so it would work in either [film]. ... This whole long extended car chase scene, where Blade is in the Charger, there are vampires in cars and on motorcycles with machine guns, it's just mayhem, and the cars are rolling over and exploding, and he's running vampires down. ... I'm a big fan of the car chases in The French Connection and Bullitt, so it was done very old-school. I like it. It's got this kind of '70s feel to it. It's decidedly not Michael Bay."
