With the release of the DVD and Blu-Ray for the Academy Award nominated film Up in the Air, comes a sneak peek of a few of the deleted scenes from the film, one of which includes George Clooney as Ryan Bingham walking through an airport in a spacesuit. Watch the clip at People now.

Something about this little snippet just seems too crazy in comparison with the rest of the movie. Although it’s fun it takes away from the fine line between comedy and drama that the film walks to well and makes it just goofy. So although it’s a fun scene, it was a good decision to cut it. I wonder what Reitman has to say about it? I guess I’ll have to buy the DVD to find out.
