Jeff Goldblum dances with tentacles in Thor: Ragnarok deleted scene
Jeff Goldblum is a unique kind of dancer in a deleted scene from Thor: Ragnarok. The scene, released to Entertainment Weekly, shows Chris Hemsworth's Thor playing with bizarre a hologram of Goldblum's Grandmaster as Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner looks on, confused.
Although Goldblum's tentacle dancing definitely steals the show, there's some serious content covered in the clip. Bruce and Thor have a bit of a heart-to-heart about their deceased fathers, with Bruce revealing that he missed his father's death because he was too focused on his experiments. Of course, since this is a Taika Waititi film, the clip is full of humor as well, with Bruce reminding Thor that is "not the god of hammers" and can defeat Hela (Cate Blanchett) even without his precious Mjolnir.
"You're Dumbo," Bruce says in the clip, through a mouthful of noodles. "Dumbo! The elephant who thinks he can fly because he has a magical feather, and then he loses his feather one day and he realizes, it didn't have anything to do with him flying at all. It was what was inside of him, you know?" The clip ends with Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie enjoying the taste of a bizarre noodle worm that popped up in Bruce's food, much to his disgust.
Goldblum previously praised Waititi and the way in which the two work together. "We're nothing if not conscientious and Johnny-on-the-spot with all of our research and ideas, but then we're willing to throw it all away and just fool around and find something playful and find something that tickles us and see where the chips fall, and that's where we go," he said. "Anything that you see in the movie was a version that was selected by Taika's tasteful editing from usually 10 other choices of stuff that we tried. We just kind of had a growth spurt and a creative ecstasy together and what you see is the result of something from that."
Thor: Ragnarok debuted in November to stellar reviews from critics, holding a 92 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie went on to earn $314 million domestically and $852.7 million worldwide, making it the ninth highest grossing Marvel film of all time.
