Brad Pitt Reveals The Reaction To Seven's Twist Ending Was Not What He Expected
 

 
Such a brilliant movie, and hats off to Kevin Spacey on his role as John Doe.

"Itís been almost 25 years since Seven was in theaters, but thereís a reason why the movie is still hailed as having one of the best endings of all time. The legendary twist before the credits roll is one of the things movie fans remember most about David Fincherís blockbuster thriller. But according to the filmís star, Brad Pitt, Sevenís ending didnít exactly go over the way he thought it might.

For those who donít remember Seven -- or who havenít gotten around to seeing it (what are you waiting for? Go now!) -- the ending goes a little something like this: after finally catching John Doe (Kevin Spacey), the serial k*ller thatís been choosing his victims because they commit the seven deadly sins, Detectives William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) and John Mills (Brad Pitt) think all is well. But they learn that John Doe managed to k*ll one -- well, technically two last victims -- Millís pregnant wife, Tracy (Gwenyth Paltrow). Oh, yeah, and her head is in a box, which John Doe made sure was delivered right to the traumatized detective.

The horrific turn of events helped cement Seven as one of the best crime thrillers of all time. And during an interview with Marc Maron on his WTF Podcast, Brad Pitt admitted that he knew David Fincher had hit it out of the park. Except, according to the actor, when he sat in on test screenings of the film, he was surprised at how the audience reacted:

OK if you remember, the movie ends, they flick on the lights and I look at people. And they just kind of slowly get up from their seats and no oneís talking. Then, they just kind of disappear from the screening. I remember just looking at Fincher and going, ĎOh my god, what the fu*k did we do? What happened. Whatís going? I thought this sh*t was great.í

I mean, itís easy to see both sides here. On the one hand, Brad Pitt is right - the ending is great. But on the other hand, it might have helped him to remember that it wasnít exactly the feel-good movie of the year. The audience probably left in silence because their minds were blown, or their hearts were broken, or maybe both.

And of course, David Fincher and Brad Pitt had nothing to worry about as far as whether Seven connected with audiences. It was well received by critics, and an unqualified hit at the box office, making over $100 million in the US. Seven helped establish David Fincher as one of the most exciting filmmakers of his generation, and also solidified Brad Pitt as an A-list actor. And the two clearly werenít scared away by the initial reactions they witnessed -- they teamed up again for the equally twisty f*ght Club just four years later."

She didnt commit one at all, Spacey k*lling her made Pitt commit the final sin of the movie.

She didn't do anything. Her death helped facilitate the final two sins. John Doe was said he had envy for the detective's life. So, he k*lled her knowing he would be k*lled by an act of wrath.

The script had two endings: the one discussed here and an alternative version where Morgan Freeman k*lls Kevin Spacey’s character. They picked the right ending.

This was the only movie my parents wouldn’t let me watch when it came out. Forgot all about it until I was in my 20s. Watched it then and loved it. Will have to watch again soon

Y’all only think that because you mainly only remember the good ones from back then... there are still just as many classics today. 2019 was an all-time great year.

I disagree, but OK, it wasn’t his best.

But what about The Game, f*ght Club, Zodiac, Benjamin Button, The Social Network, Gone Girl... it’s difficult finding a director with a stronger filmography than Fincher.
