When North Korea started to kick up a fuss about The Interview — the film in which Seth Rogen and James Franco play TV news guys who are recruited to assassinate Kim Jong Un during an interview opportunity — Sony seemed to shrug. But as the country remains furious about the comedy, calling its release essentially an act of “sponsoring terrorism,” it looks like Sony is having second thoughts. Some digital changes are being made to The Interview. One change is relatively small, but there’s also a report of one graphic scene, which could have been one of the film’s big attention-getting moments, being tossed entirely. (A spoiler warning might be in order for details of that scene.) Read More »

Update: Watch the alternate ending discussed here and many more deleted scenes in a 20+ minute footage embed below.
One of the issues with this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was that there was just too much damn story to get through. Electro’s origin, Harry’s reappearance, Harry’s transformation into the Green Goblin, Gwen Stacy’s relationship with Peter, the Rhino’s introduction… it was a lot to take in.
As it turns out, though, it could’ve been worse. An alternate ending making the rounds reveals yet another crazy twist that got excised at the last minute. Hit the jump for more details on the scene. (Spoilers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 follow.)
