Nothing is more of the kiss of death for a movie than a disappointing ending, so it\'s little wonder that filmmakers are known to have more than one stab at them.
But sometimes they make the wrong decision. Here are 11 cases where they should have gone with their alternate endings.
The possible death of Harrison Ford\'s Han Solo has haunted us as far back as
according to George Lucas\'s one-time producer Gary Kurtz.

Why the hell does Batman snog Harley in Suicide Squad?
The bittersweet original ending was much more in keeping with the darker tone of the earlier films, and would have seen Han killed in a raid on an Imperial base, leaving Leia to take charge of the post-Empire chaos and Luke setting out alone.
Instead, Lucas decided he couldn\'t risk the toy sales by killing off any of his stars, and tacked on the Ewoks\' "teddy bear luau" ending. After that, Kurtz refused to work with him again.
Francis Lawrence\'s loose adaptation completely missed the point of Richard Matheson\'s classic novel, with Will Smith\'s Dr Neville blowing himself up in true action movie martyr style and being declared \'a total legend\'.
In the alternate version he survives, and is confronted by the truth that, to the vampire/zombie/darkseeker things, he is the monster.
Writer Daniel Waters considered various different ways to wrap up the high school movie classic. Most famously, the bomb could have gone off, with the dead classmates\' prom continuing in heaven. Alternatively, they could have drunk punch containing the same drain cleaner that killed Heather Chandler.
The best has to be a twist on the final ending, except that when Winona Ryder\'s Veronica asks her old friend Martha if she wants to hang out, she shouts "f**k you Heather" and stabs Veronica. She bleeds out of the floor repeating "my name\'s not Heather" while Martha jumps out of her wheelchair and cries "I can walk!"
It\'s fittingly leftfield, and we can\'t really blame poor Martha for being pissed.
actually has three endings. The one that Paramount eventually went with has Micah\'s body thrown at the camera, and Katie, smeared with blood, smiling demonically before lunging at the screen. Their alternate ending is similar, although you don\'t see Micah\'s body, and Katie instead calmly slits her own throat.
But for our money the original ending was the subtlest and best. Micah screams, and Katie comes back into the room and sits in a catatonic state. The police eventually arrive and shoot the confused, knife-carrying Katie.
When it comes to horror, there\'s a lot to be said for skipping the fireworks for something quietly unsettling. So it was in
, with the alternate ending that abandons the duel on an icy lake.
Instead, Esther/Leena goes back to her room and dolls herself up, slipping back into her little girl act to greet the armed police squad. Don\'t be fooled, guys!
In the scrapped ending, the team led by Ben Stiller\'s White Goodman triumphs over Vince Vaughn\'s Pete while his players look on in disbelief. Cut to credits.
Edgar Wright\'s adaptation is cute and, though it doesn\'t measure up to the genius of the comics, it did have the opportunity to go one better with its end.
Scott and Ramona\'s relationship is ultimately toxic – just think about the whole \'defeating the seven evil exes\' thing for a moment – so the alternate conclusion, where he ends up with Knives, feels like the happier and healthier ending.
Director Frank Oz, Rick Moranis and the rest of the cast apparently preferred the original ending – which was more in keeping with the musical it is based on – but wimpy test audiences weren\'t so keen.
Rather than Moranis\'s Seymour rescuing Audrey from the Audrey II, they were killed and the killer plant went on the rampage across New York City in true B movie style.
As we know, Molly Ringwald\'s Andie ends up with preppy, rich a-hole Blane, which never quite rang true.
Originally she was supposed to end up with her geeky (and adorable) best friend Duckie – proving that being wealthy, popular and mean isn\'t everything – but the test audiences didn\'t like it. You know nothing, test audiences.
film is arguably the one that a film about the psychological trauma of the Vietnam War was always heading – with Sylvester Stallone\'s character blowing himself away.
Some people have also uncharitably suggested that it would also have spared us a slew of inferior sequels. Well, \'uncharitable\' isn\'t the same as \'wrong\'.
In the abandoned ending of Danny Boyle\'s horror film, Cillian Murphy\'s Jim doesn\'t survive but instead winds up dead on the operating table, leaving Selena (Naomie Harris) and Hannah (Megan Burns) to try their luck alone.
It\'s much more in keeping with the deeply depressing tone of
, but test audiences thought it was \'too bleak\'. Too bleak? Have we been watching the same film...?
