I Am Legend’s Alternate Ending

i-am-legend.jpg

I thought I Am Legend sucked. The CGI was absolutely horrible and “the vampires” looked like sh*t. If you read the book like I did (three years ago) you really know how disappointing that travesty to great material was. Anyway, here is an alternate ending to the film. Its still not the ending to the book and the vampires still look like shit but this ending is slightly better than the theatrical ending. In case it gets removed from YouTube AGAIN, click here.

The guys over at Filmstalker say that the alternate ending “will be saved for a second DVD release, not the first. Yes, I Am Legend will ‘double dip’. That means that the studio [is] going to try and dip into your pocket twice. First they’ll release a DVD version of the film with some extras for you to drool over and buy, then they’ll release another one with more extras which will make you want to get that one too. According to Francis Lawrence‘s comments through Collider he said that there’s a completely different ending that is not as commercial as one that they used, an ending which I think did a really good job of balancing the Hollywood desire against dramatic entertainment. He goes onto say that they will use this ending on the second DVD release.”

    I watched this movie like 3 times and I enjoyed it very much, there is this emotional connection between some of the viewers and Wil Smith, to a great extent. While the special effects are not great, I find that there are a lot of the scenes I enjoyed watching numerous times.

    I also read the book, and it’s one of the most memorable book in this genre. I look forward to this DVD release, and hopefully it will pay more tribute to the author’s vision than the limitations set by the film studios…

  • It’s sad that the studio wouldn’t allow Neville to become what he does in the book though. The movie would have been outstanding if they had. After watching films with great special effects, Revenge of the Sith being one of them, some of the effects in I Am Legend are laughable. Shaolin Soccer laughable.
