Manchester By the Sea, director Kenneth Lonergan‘s 2016 drama which earned Casey Affleck an Academy Award for Best Actor, ends with a quiet scene on a boat. (I’ll be vague for now to avoid spoilers.) But according to producer Matt Damon, Lonergan originally had a much larger ending in mind – one that involved a flashback, some whales, and a drone shot that simply proved too expensive for the indie film’s budget to overcome.
Read Damon’s description of Lonergan’s original Manchester by the Sea ending below. Read More »

Ocean’s 8 hit theaters this weekend and the Sandra Bullock-starring spin-off from the Ocean’s 11 series debuted at the top of the box office with $41.5 million. That’s enough to give it the biggest opening in the entire heist franchise.
