filmmaking is a complex and multifaceted process, and how the outcome of a particular film is shaped depends on a variety of factors. From changes in the stage and the intervention of studio managers to the reaction of the audience on the test screens. So, the ending of a written or even filmed film is not a definite thing, and each of them may be subject to changes, and in the end, a different ending will be placed in the final editing of the film. That's why we're on the side of a bunch of movies whose endings have changed and have undergone major changes due to re-shooting or ninety-minute rewrites. Be something else and then change. From mid-production changes in blockbuster superhero films to independent cinematic experiences whose original endings have changed. The endings you read below could have changed everything in these films and resulted in a completely different outcome for each of them. Join us to see what would happen if these endings remained intact.
Dawn of the Dead - No one was supposed to be alive at the end

Rise of the Dead was about the four apocalyptic survivors of zombies who gathered in a large local supermarket to escape the zombies and not fall prey to the mass of moving corpses that had taken over the world. At the end of the film, the zombies take over the supermarket, and in the end only two people survive, Peter and Francine. The two eventually escape death and board a helicopter.
But in The Scene of the Dead we encounter another end. It seems that at first no one was supposed to live and all the characters in the film were to die, and in the end we were supposed to see Peter and Francis commit suicide so that they would not be eaten alive. The plan was for Peter to shoot himself, and for Francine to put his head on the helicopter's rotating blades. They even designed a puppet to film the scene of Francine disintegrating. But Romero felt that this bitter and sad ending was too much, and during the production of the film, he wrote a different ending for his film.
