The art of film pales in comparison to celebrity gossip culture, right?

We all shed a little more than tears when [Jurassic World](tag:32752) took over the box office two weeks ago. But, did you know that Colin Trevorrow shot multiple incredible scenes that never made it into the final cut of the film? Well, here's what you missed!

A young Simon Masrani and a Tiger in a boat.

Why would they cut this?!?

Did you feel like the scene with Simon Masrani, owner of Jurassic World, flying a helicopter with an instructor was a little brief? That's most likely because in the original screenplay, Masrani flies the helicopter while explaining the entire plot of Life of Pi to his instructor.

The producers ultimately decided to cut the 2-hour-and-7-minute scene, saying "What? No, Colin. Wrong movie. This movie is about a lovable bachelor who moves in with four Velociraptors and hi-jinks ensue. Try again!"

Claire Dearing doesn't fall off a building and die.

She's Ron Howard's daughter. For real. Not a bit.

If you ask me, Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) couldn't have ENOUGH screen time in Jurassic World. That's why I was mad as a hatter when I found out they completely cut out the scene where Howard must put on a blonde wig and give a speech in New York City, where she's kissed by Spider-Man.

Even though the scene was completely filmed and edited, producers decided to leave it out, saying "Wha-wha-wha-WHAT?!?! Colin. You butt, you actual actual butt! This isn't Spider-Man. This is a tale of two kids who travel in a bubble driven by Jimmy Falon who grow closer as a family by solving their parents' murder. You only get one more try, kid!"

Chris Platt breaks out of space prison.

How could you take this out?

It's pretty well understood that the real star of the film was Chris Platt (played by Star-lord). So, it's hard to see why they'd cut anything with him in it. Like this scene where Star-lord and the rest of his five piece band must escape from maximum security space prison.

These scenes would have hinted at connections between the MCU and the JU (Jurassic Universe) and even explain why it was that the main character in 'Jurassic World' was the same character that appeared in the classic cult favorite 'Guardians of the Galaxy'! (Betcha never caught those little easter eggs, did ya?)
