In King Kong (the Peter Jackson version), why was the piranhadon scene deleted?

Was it because the movie was already 188 minutes? Or was King-Kong too far to have a "versus" battle? (King Kong would win I guess ^^) Also a triceratops scene exists.


The best I could find is that it was most likely cut due to the already long running time of the movie.

The scene can be found in the extended version, available on home video.

  • I just watched the extended cut of the movie, its there and I have to concur with this answer and in the running time allotted for this movie I have to assume they would have liked to have more scenes with king kong on it and the piranhadon scene doesn't have king kong on it. – Dredd Dec 21 '13 at 2:29
