Multiple Endings on Wolverine? Hey, it worked for Clue, right?

Posted on 27 April 2009 by Quaid

We are T-minus five days away from the official start of the summer movie season.  And our first film out of the starting gate might have an old-school trick up its sleeve.

x_men_origins_wolverineposter1First Showing is reporting that director Gavin Hood let slip that X-Men Origins: Wolverine  will contain multiple different endings attached to different prints.  So you’ll never know which one you are going to see in the theater.

This trick was pulled with a little movie called Clue back in the ’80′s.  It didn’t work out too well then.

The only difference is that this time the endings are less dramatically different–each less than a minute long and each a variation on the same theme.

So what’s the point, really?

I’m guessing this is a way to combat the news that the workprint that leaked a month or so back is almost identical to the theatrical print, even though Fox said there was a massive difference.  I doubt, though, that multiple one-minute stingers are going to make or break this film, though.
