Well, we already knew what one of the missing scenes consisted of: The lap dance between Butterfly and Kurt Russell's Stuntman Mike. But what else was missing from Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof when it played as a double bill with Planet Terror?
Well, the film recently screened at Cannes, and The Hollywood Reporter was there to watch it in its new 113 minute incarnation. According to them, there is also a scene outside of a convenience store in Tennessee.
"The addition here doesn't really add much. Before the game gets underway, there is an encounter between Mike and his new intended victims at a roadside convenience store. The sequence goes to black and white. While one woman goes to buy a magazine, Stuntman Mike menacingly plays with the dangling bare feet of another girl as they hang from the backseat window. About all this adds is an opportunity for Mary Elizabeth Winstead to sing, quite well by the way, the classic rock ballad 'Baby It's You.'"
Will we see Death Proof as a stand-alone film stateside? That has yet to be determined. Apparently, the film's 113-minute version garnered equal amounts of applause and hisses.
