Films can cost a fair chunk of change to make and sometimes the ending is not clear or purposely obfurscated. Why not produce more than one movie?

With subtle scene changes in the movie, probably already filmed and left in the cutting bin, and a different ending, there can be a totally new perspective on the film. A color could be the label for the culture to reference the various finished takes.

If all the scene takes are preserved and the backers are willing, maybe after the initial vision has been aired, cutting competitions could produce a whole range of colours. This would definitely show the complexity of movie manufacture and the subtlety of scene camera perspective.

Wow, E.T. black was depressing and I won't spoil it for you.

       Perspective (camera angle/frame) does change story intent right? Closeup versus wide shot.

       I suppose this could be a way to expand shelf space. Similar to the five different colors of Listerine and the seven different whitening Colgates and four different Ibuprofens, one for back pain, menstrual cramps, headaches, and arthritis.   

       You don't even need to re-cut in that case just call it 'Princess Bride Blue - for mild depression', 'Princess Bride Gold - for laughter', 'Princess Bride Purple - for murderous thoughts' etc.   

       I don't think many directors would be up for cutting competitions however, they tend to be protective about that kind of thing. Plus if you can get away not changing anything then it is nothing but profit.
