Director Frank Darabont tells SCI FI Wire that in his big-screen do-up of Stephen King's novella The Mist (in theaters Nov. 21), he saw fit to do away with the original, ambiguous ending. Before you get your knickers in a knot, know that King not only signed off on the change, he freakin' loved it. "It is the most shocking ending ever," he says, apparently having mastered the art of Trumpian overstatement, "and there should be a law passed stating that anybody who reveals the last five minutes of this film should be hung from their neck until dead." - Ben Katner
