We're really glad they didn't go with this.
If you managed to get to Jordan Peele's 'Get Out' while it was in cinemas, you would have enjoyed what is undoubtedly one of the films of the year that has one of the most satisfying endings in recent memory.
However, it wasn't always planned that way, with Peele writing a filming a completely different (but very plausible) alternate ending that would have been all too grim and very real.
Explaining it recently, Peele said:
"In the beginning when I was first making this movie the idea was, ‘OK, we’re in this post-racial world, apparently. That was the whole idea. People were saying, ‘We’ve got Obama so racism is over, let’s not talk about it.’ That’s what the movie was meant to address. Like look, you recognize this interaction. These are all clues, if you don’t already know, that racism isn’t over. So the ending in that era was meant to say, look, ‘You think race isn’t an issue? Well at the end, we all know this is how this movie would end right here.'"
Thankfully he had a change of heart about it, going with the much more satisfying reveal of Rod Williams, TSA, arriving on the scene after Chris makes his escape because we don't think we would have left the cinema as happy with the below.
