10 Doomed Movies SAVED By Last-Minute Reshoots

Reshoots can kill an otherwise good movie, but sometimes, they end up saving one at the last second!

Warner Bros. Pictures

When it comes to making movies, there are often times where a cast and crew will need to come back together and fix something that's wrong. A reshoot is simply that, and when it occurs during the normal operation of filmmaking, it's not that big a deal.

Of course, there are those movies that require reshoots for entirely different reasons, often brought about by studio interference or other means. X-Men: Dark Phoenix famously had to completely reshoot its ending to avoid the obvious comparisons to Captain Marvel, and it effectively ruined the movie.

That tends to happen when everything is already said and done, but an outside force requires a change. It's been the bane of any filmmaker working on a DCEU movie, and it's happened time and time again to other projects over the years. Of course, it's not always bad, and occasionally, a reshoot can save a movie.

Granted, that happens far less often, but every once in a while, it turns out to be a positive move for the film. These ten movies didn't necessarily have much going for them before their reshoots, but once they were completed, they were saved from all but certain doom!
