    Last night I was able to attend another Warner Bros. press event where this time they focused on I AM LEGEND. I have another video interview (still in editing) with WB, but I know some will be excited to see what they're putting on each of the 4 versions they are releasing.

    Reading this, it sounds like only the Alternative version with different ending is presented on the HD sets. Perhaps both endings with branching? One can only hope...

    I'm curious as to what the alternative ending is, but I won't be buying this to find out. Although I am sure the alternative ending has to be better than the theatrical one, which butchered not only the title of the novela, but its entire spirit as well.

    From dvdactive.com:

    "The 2-disc special edition will include all that, along with an alternate theatrical version of the film with a "controversial" ending. HD-DVD/DVD Combo and Blu-ray releases will also be available for $35.99 with all of the 2-disc features."

    It's not clear as to whether the different ending will be seamless branching, or on the disc as a separate encode. If it's closer to the book ending I may pick it up.

    Ah, hadn't seen that. Disappointing if true. [​IMG]

    And definitely controversial, though for totally opposite reasons!

    Controversial, in that it sucks. I guess thats one way to market it. This will have to be a rental for me. I didnt see it in theaters. After the mix i read, i can wait. The book has been a favorite of mine since i was a kid. But now that everyone has ripped off the story, i guess its hard to make it not look like, been there and done that. Course if someone could be FAITHFUL to the story, that would be cool!

    If anyone is interested in seeing the original ending to I Am Legend, AICN has it posted here:

    UPDATED!! The Original Ending To I AM LEGEND is online - and is vastly superior to the theatrical ending... -- Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    While it is better than I expected, particularly the part where Neville realizes it is he that has become the 'monster', which is truer in spirit to the book, it is still far too happy an ending.

    Edited to add:

    Damn! They've just taken it down. That was quick.

    Is this "original" ending different to the alternate ending?

    basically in the book and in the theatrical version he dies, in the cut "original" ending he survives. it does include the fact that he is viewed as a monster to the vampires (zombies) which is in the book and the reason for the title. the theatrical version muddles that up a little. now if only they could combine the "i am legend" arch of the book with the sad ending, the movie would be perfect.

    Daniel, spoilers man, use the spoiler tags! Some of us have not seen the movie yet. Maybe a few have not read the book, but they should!

    I just did.

    So what's your excuse for quoting it without spoiler tags? (That one you can fix on your own.)

    Yet, you quoted the same post thus cause me to spoilerize your post too.[​IMG]

    Members, just because you know the plotlines in books or films, you don't have to spoil others enjoyment of finding them out too be revealing that information without using spoiler tags prior to them getting the chance of reading or watching that book or film in question.

    anyway thanks for the fix.
