The Adam McKay-directed political comedy-drama “Vice” about the rise of Dick Cheney managed to be a Best Picture nominee, even as reviews for the film were decidedly more mixed than McKay’s previous big contender “The Big Short”.
It’s a film with some decidedly odd moments, but one that was cut because it was considered just too wild was a musical number early in the film as Steve Carell’s Donald Rumsfeld explains to Christian Bale’s Dick Cheney the ins and outs of Washington politics.
Those involved have discussed the scene before whilst doing press for the movie, even indicating that the cut came after filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson weighed in with his take on the movie, and we know it’s set to be included on the Blu-ray and digital release. Today, Slashfilm has posted the clip online.
“Vice” arrives on Movies Anywhere and Digital March 12th and on Blu-ray and DVD on April 2nd.
