I have heard that there was a scene that was cut from "Gravity". Does anyone know what it was about and who it involved?

I heard that it was the 'air hostess' 'gyrating' against something so was excluded for being crude. It was only a couple of seconds long.
That's all I know.

Hmm, I read it was the tongues at the beginning, and that this was left off of Liquid TV but included in the first video.

Eh? The tongues at the start were in Liquid TV.

When I say 'I heard', I mean that I haven't seen it, not that I don't know what it is.

The scene cut was incredibly small. It takes place in the very beginning, during the shot that pulls back to show Trevor and Aeon kissing through the window, on the train. In the censored version (the version everyone's seen), the door to the train car is closed. But in the cut clip, there is a woman banging away on the door, sliding it open and closed, and she's "in the way", I think you get the picture...

I'm not trying to be dense, but....I don't get the picture...I'm not fishing for lurid details either.

Wow! Recieved a copy of this, after the most exasperating night of my life trying to obtain it, (I'm no rocket scientist, guys) from Chaos Knight...thanks, Chaos. Chivalry is not dead! The most interesting part is that yes, the scene is questionable, and how Peter Chung didn't get in a press uproar is beyond me...but the most romantic kiss scene between Trevor and Aeon stokes the flames far higher for me, than the girl with the door-for-a-boyfriend!

I'd be more inclined to call it espionage than romance...

wasn't the girl opening and closing the door on her crotch? and I thought it was OONA

Don't know, but the funny thing is she was reportedly pregnant soon after the scene and gave birth to a pet door....

Ahh, That scene is a classic door slammer. It comes back to the frustration of self satisfaction, with the crudeness of the door, the scene with Trevor & Aeon, and with the everyday going out by the outside window. Mind you, in the subtle over tones of "Gravity" it is only a small piece that get's taken out, as subtle as the wind that blows towards the end scenes of "Gravity"
