Roland Emmerich Talks 2012 Blu-ray Alternate Ending

Posted November 13, 2009 10:10 AM by Juan Calonge

Sony PicturesDuring a promotion interview for '2012', German-born director Roland Emmerich was asked about whether the Blu-ray of his latest disaster extravaganza would include any deleted scenes. Emmerich said there was "not much", except for an alternate ending that was deemed "too unrealistic" and was therefore cut out.

Emmerich also discussed his following projects: a small-budget Shakespeare movie and an adaptation of Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy. Note the interview below contains '2012' spoilers.

Alternate endings are always fun. I wonder if the ending in this film will be any more "unrealistic" than the alternate ending for "ID4," when they flew a biplane into battle...

Emmerich doing Skakespeare and Isaac Asimov?! I never thought he'd have the class for either one...

'adaptation of Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy' - Please don't mess this one up.

How he handles The Foundation Trilogy will either end Emmerich's career or skyrocket it.

Curious as to why Dean Devlin is no longer associated with Emmerich or Centropolis...?

Good that the Studio and the Director didn't say the BLU will include 40 mins of extra footage.

Watched a 2012 preview on the Godzilla blu-ray and it looked spectacular (PQ-wise). This will make a reference Blu-ray for sure.

""too unrealistic" and was therefore cut out. "

Seriously? And driving a limo between two buildings that are collapsing by driving along the office floors is TOTALLY REALISTIC right?

Or maybe flying a small plane between collapsing structures. Oh yeah..totally.

Idioteque...

Everything what I saw in the preview and clips of 2012 is too the extreme, is it possible. YES! The
movie looks to take you edge of your seat! I can't wait to go watch this in the theaters!

Too unrealistic? No... After the stark, gritty realism of his films, that surprises me...

Foundation doesn't fit Emmerich's style at all. Foundation is quiet, contemplative, where all the main action happens offstage and we primarily see characters talking about what will happen and then discuss what happened afterward. The trilogy is punctuated by heightened moments of action (especially during the Mule saga), but I don't see how Emmerich will be able to properly convey the Foundation spirit. He will turn it into a high concept sci-fi actioner with epic space battles (which happen in the books...we just don't get to witness them directly) and over the top special effects.

Or he could reveal himself to be a brilliant auteur and show us all a side we never knew existed. But how likely is that?

2012 was so cool. The effects were amazing. All the people complaining about the story line are
dimwits who dont know what a blockbuster is, and im sure the people complaining will end up
buying it.

First Independence Day, and then this? Roland sure knows how to blow shit up and make it look
GOOD.

Based on some of the stuff that happens in his movies I am seriously curious as to what Emmerich considers to be unrealistic.
