There is an alternative video to the ending of the beloved movie Titanic which has resurfaced and gone viral, and fans have admitted that they regret watching it.
A quick recap on one of the greatest movies to ever be released across the globe: Titanic, directed by James Cameron was released in the year 1997. The epic romance and disaster film is based on accounts of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.
It stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack Dawson, and Kate Winslet as Rose. Both characters belonging to different social classes. When Rose boards the ship, she is set to get married to a different character who belongs to the same social classes as her, but then meets Jack on the ship and the two end up falling in love with each other.
Never mind the debate over how many people could have fitted onto Rose’s floating door (many believe poor Jack could have been spared if she’d just moved over), there’s an alternate ending regarding the final resting place of a priceless jewel.
The door controversy:

The “awful” alternative ending:
In the original movie, Rose throws the ‘Heart of The Ocean’ diamond necklace overboard – in secret, and it’s lost to the world forever.
However, in the alternative video circulating social media, the end of the movie could have been a whole lot different. And fans are annoyed that they have seen the clip.
The alternate ending to Titanic is hilarious. This would have absolutely ruined the film for me pic.twitter.com/L3vSrSb72e

In the alternative ending, Rose is caught red-handed by treasure hunter, Brock, with the jewel, who then desperately begs her to let him hold it.
She allows him to hold it for a short time, and then pulls it back slightly from Brock’s hand while maintaining awkward eye contact along with a cheesy speech about what really matters in life.
Brock eventually lets go, and moments later Rose throws the necklace over her shoulder and into the ocean.
The clip was posted and shared on Twitter by the user @Patbrennan88, and it has reached over 1.2 million views. The Twitter user posted the clip with the message “The alternative ending to Titanic is hilarious. This would have absolutely ruined the film for me”.
Fans of the film who came across this clip had a lot to say about it, and most comments shared the same sentiments, which were that they were not pleased with the fact that they had watched the clip.
Much like the Arnie smiling deleted scene in T2.. WTF was Cameron thinking even filming this??!

That was really awful. Part of what makes the existing ending work is that she kept the diamond all those years and nobody else knew. Without her secret intact, it opens the story up again when it needs to be closed. Cameron definitely made the correct choice.

So do you think with that ending it still would’ve won best picture and 11 Oscars?

It kind of ruins the depth the ending did have. Her being by herself to put it in the sea let us figure it out the meaning behind it rather than having scientists yell at her for 2 minutes about throwing it in there in the first place.
