Edited out of the movie was the largest scene that we did in San Francisco, an army surplus sale filmed at Fort Point National Historic Site. Here, Adam Garcia and Anjul Nigam's characters figure out where to get more hologram generators.

The scene included military jeeps and tanks, as well as lots of set dressing. Unfortunately, not only is it not in the film, but the DVD release doesn't include a Deleted Scenes section.
