How lost gif should have ended

These films were supposed to end in a much more shocking way!

Not every draft of the script is implemented without complaints and not every idea automatically ends up in the finished film. However, when the discarded scene is actually the planned ending, things get more interesting, as the following five examples show. These films should have ended much more drastic and shocking than we finally saw them on screen.

These films were supposed to end in a much more shocking way

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Let's start with a classic of the modern horror thriller. Cannibal Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) says goodbye to Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) over the phone while talking to Dr. Chilton observed from a distance and made a vague suggestion that he would soon eat it. Actually, this point should have been worked out even more drastically, because instead of on a Caribbean island, the call should have taken place from an office building in which, in addition to Hannibal Lecter, the already tied prison director Dr. Chilton would have found. With a knife in hand, his tormentor would have asked him if he was ready to go. Ultimately, director Jonathan Demme was too clumsy with this variant and he decided on the vague hint, as the colleagues from Looper report.

True Romance (1993)

Now we come to another cult film from the 1990s. In the bloody road movie from the pen of Quentin Tarantino, the love of Clarence (Christian Slater) and Alabama (Patricia Arquette) would not have had a happy ending. Rather, the naive drug dealer would have died in the final hail of bullets, while his new wife was able to leave the battlefield with the money. Director Tony Scott even shot this version, but in the end decided against Quentin Tarantino's request and gave us a more forgiving ending with a battered, but living Clarence.

Opinion: These directors have never (yet) made a bad film!

Interstellar (2014)

The end of Christopher Nolan's science fiction epic did not please every follower of the master, so we like to look at the alternative. In it, Joseph Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) would not have been able to see his daughter Murphy again and he would have lost his life similar to Clarence in the previous example. If the coordinates of the secret NASA headquarters were transmitted to his former self, he would actually have been torn apart by the tidal force of the black hole and the already quite depressing film would have been richer by another sucker.

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

Here, too, the ending is controversial, but ultimately gives the entire film its very special touch. But the alien attack shouldn't have happened. In an early draft, we viewers would have been left in the dark about the actual events following Michelle's escape from the bunker. The young woman would have gone to Chicago to look for her family and would have found a huge field of rubble. Only now would it have become clear to her that something terrible had actually happened, but this ending would deliberately leave open whether it was an act of war among humans or actually an alien attack.

Rocky & Rocky V (1976 and 1990)

Finally, we dedicate ourselves to an absolute classic and a less successful sequel. Either way, Sylvester Stallone wanted us to be sent home with a depressing ending. In the first film, the boxer would have knocked out at the end. lost and not on points, in the fifth part Rocky would even have died. Fortunately, the latter in particular did not happen, because then the surprisingly good sixth film in the series would not have existed, not to mention the spin-off "Creed", which is also worth seeing.
