* Creator/{{Disney}} has used this trope a few times to hide spoilers in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. For example, a special preview of ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' was screened at D23 2017, which featured foiler footage where [[spoiler:Thor has both eyes intact and is not wearing an eyepatch]], as using the real footage would have spoiled [[spoiler:Thor losing his right eye]] in the then-unreleased ''Film/ThorRagnarok''.

''Film/ThorRagnarok''. Trailers for the previous ''Avengers'' film, ''[[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron Age of Ultron]]'', were also carefully edited to omit Comicbook/ScarletWitch and Comicbook/{{Quicksilver}} from the final battle, likely to avoid spoiling the fact that they switch sides and join the Avengers during the final act of the movie.

* A random internet poster once said something to the effect of "I have this idea for a book with 9 alternate endings which will be released simultaneously, and when people realise there's conflicts in their different versions and start cataloguing them, I'll admit there's multiple endings but say that I wrote 10 different ones and watch as they go nuts trying to find the missing one.", which was quickly followed by a (humorous) response saying a variation of "[[YouBastard You]] MagnificentBastard!". (While Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability, [[YouKnowThatShow if anyone knows the source of this one]], please edit in the quotes and a link [[RuleOfFunny for general enjoyment]] as the above [[DontExplainTheJoke is forced to explain the joke]].)

* David Prowse (the actor in the Vader suit) did not say, "I am your father," while ''[[StarWars The Empire Strikes Back]]'' was being filmed. He actually said, "Obi-Wan killed your father." James Earl Jones said the real line for dubbing, and Mark Hamill was told the real line just before filming as a form of EnforcedMethodActing.

** What's interesting is that both lines make a certain degree of sense [[spoiler: as it was Obi-Wan who 'killed' Anakin by defeating him in battle and letting him burn to death in the lava fields. It also works in terms of the emotional aspect, Obi-Wan not doing enough to curb Anakin's fall to the Dark Side. But neither of these aspects would have made sense at the time of filming as the third film wasn't made yet...]]

** According to Mark Hamill in an interview, someone ''did'' leak Prowse's line to the media, so this fake line was a very prescient maneuver whether the leaker was Prowse or not.

It also works in terms of the emotional aspect, Obi-Wan not doing enough to curb Anakin's fall to the Dark Side.

** They also both play along fairly well in context with the rest of the dialogue ("That's impossible!" "Search your feelings; you know it is true!"), at least until the line "[[WeCanRuleTogether Together we can defeat the Emperor and rule the galaxy as father and son.]]"

* During the production of ''Film/TheXFilesIWantToBelieve'', several fake screenshots of the movie were released (including a picture of a werewolf) to throw people off. When the actual movie was released... well, let's just say there were more than a few people wishing Chris Carter had made the fake movie instead.
** Heck, for the first movie, there were multiple ''scripts'' written to prevent the real version from being leaked.
