On the two disc DVD special edition version of Predator, that was the only deleted scene on the second disc.
How deleted scenes are treated vary from production and director. James Cameron really should get credit for how people see directors commentary and deleted scenes and directors cuts in current times. Some productions like Event Horizon, the deleted scenes weren't given the same treatment, although many deleted scenes we never see are usually alternate versions of the story itself that undergo change ( I suspect the film Supernova is a classic case of this)
There's one shot in particular that I believe was missing from early VHS copies of Predator ( I think it's been in all the DVDs available to date, can't say for sure ).
It's always struck me as odd...
When the Predator shines its targeting lasers onto its wrist blades, and they start to glow.
Is it cleaning blood off, heating them up, or sharpening them maybe?
If so, why the targeting laser? I dunno, I just don't like the idea of the mechanism there being anything other than "Pred moves head to point laser, caster follows dots til locked... boom."
Making the target dots themselves powerful enough to be a weapon... Nuh uh, sorry.
i haven't seen this. pretty cool. i understand it was cut but it would have been cool to show maybe the pred's laser sight on him then shooting the tree to show that he was toying with dutch. cool stuff though.
