One of the most exciting features for "Avatar" fans (though not so much for us) of the upcoming extended version of the film hitting shelves on November 16th is the promise of its Earth-set opening sequence. During the Scream Awards last night, attendees got a look at one of the deleted scenes from the purged opening, and yeah, we can definitely see why it was cut.

One of the most exciting features for "Avatar" fans (though not so much for us) of the upcoming extended version of the film hitting shelves on November 16th is the promise of its Earth-set opening sequence. During the Scream Awards last night, attendees got a look at one of the deleted scenes from the purged opening, and yeah, we can definitely see why it was cut.

The scene features Aerosmith member Sam Worthington picking a bar fight and then promptly getting tossed on his ass into an alley, all with lugubrious voiceover in which his character states he's always been looking for "a single thing worth fighting for." Granted, James Cameron isn't known to be the most subtle of directors for dramatic scenes ("I know now why you cry") but this an embarrassingly heavy-handed "insight" into Worthington's character. In a film already pretty much drenched in over-reaching dialogue, it was probably a smart idea to snip it.

Anyhow, take a look at the scene after the jump. Oh yeah, it appears that in the future, dive bars will still look the same.
