    Don't you hate them?

    I saw a new one for Evan Almighty that pretty much gave away the entire ending. I was mildly interested in seeing it, and now I have zero interest.

    Another one is for 1408. Thanks to a trailer, I'm pretty sure I know how that ends too.

    I hate it when they make movies based on books that I've already read, because then it's already spoiled.

    If you see some Spider-Man 3 trailer, they told you all the movie before watching it.

    I'm grateful Transformers Movie Trailers don't tell us everything about the upcoming movie...though I've read so many spoilers that I almost know what happens :D

    As soon as I saw the Ark in Evan Almighty, I was like, "Okay, right. Got it."

    Saw the trailer for 1408 and I was wondering, "Why should I go see this now?"

    Ditto. Even I felt like I shouldn't see it. The trailers for Evan Almighty have become the movie itself. :p  We know how it ends.

    But you then have the privilege of being able to bitch about how Hollywood fucked up the story.

    I'm a fan of 1960's and 70's Italian thrillers (known as "Giallo" films), and the trailers for them often give away who the murderer is! Of course it didn't matter so much back then (there was probably a huge gap between people seeing the trailer and film in the cinema) but with the DVD releases offering up the trailers as an extra, the problem becomes acute!!!

    I knew how Titanic was going to end. Saved me sitting through 3 hours of that crap.

    So much Titanic bashing lately!!!

    Anywho, I hate trailers that more of show all the highlights of the movie. Like a trailer of all the best jokes or the a killing blow in the climax of a movie.

    Even after seeing the trailer, I was not aware of what was going to be the ending for the Selena movie :)

    The trailer for Grudge 2 pretty much gave away the whole movie.

    I forget the Robin Williams movie's name, Man of the Hour, I think.
    But I remember seeing the preview for that and thinking:

    Wow. I know how that movie starts, the turning point in the middle, and how it ends.

    Really? I thought the previews were completely misleading for that movie. The story wasn't really at all what I thought it would be about.

    I haven't seen fantastic four 2 yet but i'm pretty sure they'll win by sharing each others powers.

    Yeah, I thought I was going into a comedy not some thinly veiled political criticism and psuedo-political thriller crap.

    I think that is a marketing ploy by some "smart" people to say you your time, money and the inconvenience of seeing a bad movie.
