Tractor Tire Award of the Week - Cowboys & Aliens

Have you ever watched a trailer and had that one scene, that one shot that made you go "Wow, that was cool!"? Or maybe there was something you saw that stuck with you, something that for some reason was in the back of your head and despite how insignificant it was you were waiting for it to show up in the final cut of the film. But when you watched the movie that scene was nowhere to be found or has been altered in a significant way. Well, that is what the Tractor Tire Award of the Week is all about. We try to track down those scenes that didn't make it into the final version of the film and make sense of them. Where in the film was it supposed to be? Why might it have been cut? Why has it been changed? We may not always have the answers for you but at least you will have your piece of mind and know that you aren't crazy. So, this weeks award goes to Cowboys & Aliens!

Cut Scene #1

"Should we step in?"

I am actually kind of baffled by this one. It isn't a significant scene or at least it doesn't appear to be but I am having a hard time placing where it should have been. In the trailer it is used to comment on a scene with Daniel Craig getting beat up with Sam Rockwell asking, "Should we step in?" and Harrison Ford replying "Looks like he is doing fine" just before Craig blasts someone with his space gun. I suppose it could be from that scene where Craig is fighting the new boss of his old gang but in the finished film neither Ford or Rockwell are standing near one another while that fight is happening. For once I am kind of stumped on this one. If anyone out there has any idea where this was supposed to take place in the film I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter. Either way though it seems fairly inconsequential to anything in the film so it doesn't seem like that big a loss.
