Alternative endings of famous films
It’s no secret that far from all the footage gets into the final version of the film. There is a practice of showing pictures to special focus groups, which evaluate exactly what kind of film will be most popular with a wide audience. The authors always leave to themselves the chance to remake, add or reduce something, and sometimes they even shoot several alternative endings, sometimes only before the very premiere of deciding what final will be in their creation.
I have repeatedly raised the topic that many films could end differently, and not the way we saw it on the screen. There was a story about the alternative ending "Back to the Future", "Titanic", "Rocky"
Today I will show several alternative endings to various famous films.
I'm a legend
This is perhaps the most famous alternative ending. Everyone remembers how bitter and joyless the final of the film turned out to be - the brave and tenacious Robert Neville performed by Will Smith dies in a fiery explosion,taking several monsters with them, but letting Anna and little Ethan escape, and they eventually reach the settlement of people.
This is a terrible ending. He should not have died, just should not! Why did Francis Lawrence give up on a full-fledged happy end, making everyone sadly regret? After all, he had made a completely finished ending of the film, in which Robert gives the monsters their tribeswoman, and they leave the people alone, giving them all together to quietly leave the terrible city!
Alien 4: Resurrection
Junet's film has an alternate ending in which Ripley and the female robot Call land on the surface of the Earth, and discover that it is covered with ruins.
