New Trailer For August Osage County And News That The Ending Could Be Changed

August Orange County PosterThe star studded August: Orange County has just premiered in Toronto to very mixed responses from audiences. As far as I can tell from afar the public that attended screenings were much more keen on the film than the critics. These things are always a little hard to gauge and open to bias from those reporting it though, so best to take these kind of reactions with a pinch of salt.

Apparently test audiences who were shown the film prior to Toronto were positive but not too keen on the original ending – the ending from Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play. This ending was then changed and it is this altered version that has been playing at Toronto.

A report at The LA Times goes into detail about the change to the ending, which I’ll try not to spoil here but will say was far more ambiguous in the original script.

Harvey Scissorhands Weinstein and co. are reportedly more keen on the neater ending but according to quotes from director John Wells at The LA Times he’s still pushing to have the original ending reinstated before the film is released.

It’s hard to know which plays better without seeing the film but I’m more inclined to think that Wells and Letts probably got it right the first time. I certainly prefer how the the original ending sounds from the description at The LA Times.

Today we got another trailer for August: Osage County and it makes the most of the many stars who pop up in the film.

August: Orange County will open in limited cinemas in America and the UK on Christmas Day and Boxing Day respectively.
