New ending for "The Village?"

http://cinescape.com/0/editorial.asp...8&obj_id=41607



Just saw this over at cinescape. I wonder if that means the original ending that was talked about here was true?

Are you insinuating that the ending really was:

Spoiler:
The constrcution company bulldozing the town for a highway?

I'm not insinuating anything, just reporting what I found on another website. I report, you decide. Hey, that's kind of catchy...

Yay, So this means I could walk in 10 minutes till it's over and not have to deal with two hours of teasing and pointless filler to get to the real meat of M.'s films.. the twist ending.

This is kind of funny...M. Knight first said the leaked "ending" (posted in spoiler above) wasn't the actual ending. Now reports are he's going back and re-filming the ending...although those filming say they are NOT re-doing the ending (just picking up a few other scenes).

I half expected it was just a subplot of Mr. Glass, super-freaky evil genuis.

Original ending:

Spoiler:
The village elders dress up as the creatures to keep the village contained in their early age living.........the whole movie takes place in present day


New ending:

Hopefully it's something effective.

I'm not reading the endings! I managed to avoid the ending of the Sixth Sense until I saw it on DVD! (Not easy!)

But, to Jackskeleton . . . unless it is Signs. The twist in Signs was . . . that there was no twist. My alternate ending is a million times better:

Spoiler:
at the end of the film we flashback to the accident scene and find out that Mel Gibson is pinned to the tree dying, not his wife, and the whole thing occurred to confirm the preacher's faith as he dies and goes to Heaven.

The real meat? The Sixth Sense could have ended right after the scene with Toni Collette and Osment in the car near the end. It still would've been a critically-acclaimed hit. Unbreakable could've ended right at the kitchen with Willis, his son and the newspaper. It would still be a terrific and entertaining take on the superhero mythos. As for Signs.....guess what....there WAS NO "twist ending".

Oh great, this is going to turn into a M.. Knight circle jerk. The sudden twist so to say in signs was the

I was digging around and found a possible new ending:

Spoiler:
A Coke bottle falls from the sky...

I just got done reading a few articles from a couple different websites.

The good news: All talk about this film and it's ending have only come from scripts that were purchased and one of them reviewed it while it was still titled "The Woods". Seems there are
Spoiler:
three twists including the ending


The bad news: All reviewers mentioned that even if it was a mock script, it wouldn't have been done as poorly as it was.

Now the really, really bad news - I already know one huge twist after watching the trailor again and after reading a subtle insert in of the reviews (hard to catch) unfortunately, I'm pretty sure it's more than dead on. If you don't believe me, find the similar article yourself and then watch the trailor again.

You know, everyone is guessing what this "twist" is, but quite frankly, if we're going to sit around trying to figure out the twist, it won't work. If you sit through the whole movie obsessing over the twist, you won't enjoy the movies. I think M Night's films have all been really quite good, and not because of just the endings.

Not to mention, I'm sure I read this rumor was debunked...yes, there were reshoots, but not on the ending. And who knows if that rumor floating around is true or not.

If it's like other M. Knight stuff, they will most likely be left to the imagination.

I get where you're coming from but his movies are coming down to this (at least for me anyway). I'm still excited about seeing the movie and I personally think it's fun to try and guess what his next ending will be.
