Pride & Prejudice (2005) film's Deleted Scenes (A compilation of video clips and promo stills)

I am re-posting here (for the third time as I first posted in 2008, then, in 2010...and now 2018, about 8 years later) about Pride & Prejudice (2005) film's potential deleted scenes as I've been finding/have collected more images (from either promotional photos that were possible and potential deleted/extend scenes) over the years!

As I've previously said here several years ago, A few things I wished the P&P DVD would've included in the special features department were: Deleted or Extended Scenes, Outtakes, and  Matthew Macfadyen's audition/reading with Keira Knightley. Also, a Commentary with Keira & Matthew (to hear their insights and behind the scenes/on set camaraderie on their scenes together) would be cool too as well as the Cast Dance Rehearsal clips...though we've seen a few of them included in the behind the scenes clips on the HBO First Look and A Bennet Family Portrait featurettes....and these awesome (unfortunately, the links doesn't work anymore) P&P '05 Diaries (Video Clips links) (I think the UK/International DVD included these documentary or was shown on TV for P&P Promo...but I'm not quite sure...) as lots of clips there in those behind the scenes showed some potential deleted scenes.
Speaking of deleted scenes...several years ago, I posted here about these possible P&P 05: Deleted Scenes Photos and always wondered if there are more (there were clips of them on the P&P '05 Diaries)...The 2005 Pride & Prejudice film will be 13 years in September and I hope they'll release these and the following deleted scenes video clips below (I think the Netherfield ball dance clips with just Darcy & Lizzie dancing were included on either the HBO First Look and A Bennet Family Portrait featurettes or on the P&P Diaries documentary

Check out and watch as well as see more deleted scenes (a few from P&P UK & US trailers) you may or may not have seen before. But first...

Director Joe Wright mentioned in this script factory interview (with P&P screenwriter Deborah Moggach) that there really wasn't any deleted scenes (other than longer edits) like when someone asked him about the length of the film.

AM: "I wish the film had been longer! It’s a great shame you had to chop so much. What dictates the length of a film? Do you look at the prospective audience and wonder how long you can keep them in their seats, or are you told that it has to be a certain length?"

His response was:

JW: "There was a longer edit, the first edit was forty five minutes longer. But it was a bit boring. The fact that you want more is a good thing. But I like that we end on the close up because it just whips it away. The longer version was just more indulgent in the shots of ceilings of houses. I felt that I was letting the audience drift. One of the things when you do an adaptation is that you want to stick to the narrative, and beats of the story, but I was also keen to be faithful to the spirit of the book. I wanted to create the same feeling in the audience as you get reading the novel. That’s why you get so many close ups because Austen looks very carefully at people, and using this technique I found a cinematic equivalent to her prose. But it’s a youthful book, written by a twenty one year old girl when she wrote the first draft. So it’s got great energy, and I wanted that speed and energy running through it. I wanted that youthful telling of it. That’s not because I wanted a youthful audience, but because it was written by somebody young."
