We have Never Trust a Trailer for the tendancy of trailer some trailers to mislead...

Is there a trope for trailers which go in the opposite direction, and reveal so much of the events of the film that after having viewed the trailer, theres really no need to see the film. The one that always sticks in my mind for this is Vertical Limit, in which every single interesting stunt was featured in the trailer.

Particularly annoying is when a film has an interesting twist that's not a Twist Ending that would have come as a surprise... if it hadn't already been revaled in the trailer.
