Ken Branagh’s alternate ending to Belfast movie 2022

 Ken Branagh’s alternate ending to Belfast movie  For his Oscar-nominated picture “Belfast,” Kenneth Branagh wrote an alternate ending in which he appears.

The writer and director of the semi-autobiographical film spoke at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival about how he originally meant to play an older Buddy in the film but opted out of the role.


During the Q&A, Branagh added, “I’ll give you three guesses who that actor was.” He was alluding to himself as the elder Buddy.

“However, in the end, the sequence just didn’t fit.”


For the film about his youth in north Belfast at the beginning of the Troubles, Branagh stayed behind the camera and was nominated for best picture, best director, and best original script.

A technicolor intro introduces viewers to the present-day city of Belfast before transporting them back to the year of the film’s original release, 1969. The film finishes with Branagh’s family relocating from Belfast to England for a fresh start.

Much Ado About Nothing, Dead Again, and last month’s Death on the Nile was among the many films that Branagh has appeared in as a director. He has also appeared in many other films, including Dead Again, Peter’s Friends, and Much Ado About Nothing.

Described as his “most personal to date,” the picture Belfast has received some of the best reviews in his career.

The film is up for six Baftas this weekend, including best feature, best British film, best script, and best editing. Ken Branagh’s alternate ending to the Belfast movie is expected to win him his first Academy Award later this month.

In this coming-of-age storey, Branagh’s childhood and the loss of innocence during the Troubles in Northern Ireland were used as inspiration. The film was written during the lockdown. There are also newcomers Jude Hill and Jamie Dornan in the movie, as well as Jamie Dornan, Caitriona Balfe, Caitriona Hinds, Judi Dench, and Lewis McAskie, which also stars the young Branagh, as well as his parents and grandparents (Will).

During the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Jane Campion, Paul Thomas Anderson, Steven Spielberg and Ryausuke Hamaguchi were all named Outstanding Directors of the Year. Branagh shared the award with them.

Branagh’s Belgian investigator Hercule Poirot appears to be heading for a third excursion. Steve Asbell, president of Twentieth Century Studios, announced that a sequel to Death on the Nile is now being developed.

A third Poirot film starring Branagh has been written and hinted at by Asbell in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and it will be based on one of Christie’s lesser-known novels and set in postwar Venice.

“Yes,” Asbell responded when asked if Branagh would direct again. Kenneth Branagh is Poirot, but he’s also the show.
