I heard that there was a scene (a fighting scene) where Legolas is taking arrows out of orcs (when you wonder why he has a never ending supply of arrows)
There is also the scene where Galadriel gives out all the gifts to the fellowship...That was cut out...It was actually still shown on the ads on TV here in Australia. Damn cut out scenes...
But it's coming out in December over here so I have to wait until then.

Anyone who thinks Tom Bombadil should have been in the movie is insane. No matter what you think of him in the book, he would have brought NOTHING to a film in which trying to get non-fans to connect with the start of which was difficult enough as it is.
Believe me, his appearance would have been roundly panned by anyone who was not a die-hard fan. When a man in a blue coat and yellow wellies wondered onto screen twirling the ring around his finger and singing about the fact that he is Tom Bombadil and what a jolly fellow he is people would have walked out the cinema.
"We've got maybe seconds before Darth Rosenberg grinds everybody into Jawa burgers and not one of you buds has the midi-chlorians to stop her!"
To the best of my knowledge the Bombadil scene was filmed. I say this because of a question asked of fans at the official movie website. They asked viewers what they thought of not including Bombadil in the film. This question was asked way after the filming was complete. It led me to believe that it was a post-production question.
I think they also may restore the Nazgul on the Great River scene...but this is the conjecture of someone who doesn't necessarily have a clue...but there it is.
