Quotes: Trailers Always Spoil
"Shall I spend three-and-sixpence to purchase the book,
Which we all can pick up on the bookstall and look?
Well, it may appear strange, but I think I shall not,
For the back of the cover will tell you the plot."
: So they're all clones? Crow T Robot
: No, that was The Island
"On a side note, this was the first film I remember having one of those incredibly long, plot-blowing coming attraction trailers. Sitting with a group of pals, my friend Andrew Muchoney and I exchanged dropped-jaws looks when a bit from what was obviously the end of the movie was shown. How naÔve we were. Now 80% of trailers are like that."
"Hereís the trailer for Disneyís live-action
Cinderella and itís pretty much the cartoon acted about by humans, CGI mice and wigs. It looks like they didnít change a thing. Kenneth Branagh, who directed this, coughed up an exact adaptation and he also crammed in as many actors from Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey as possible. Just when
Cinderella couldnít take one more actor from
Downton Abbey, he shoved one more in there. (And yes, I just realized what I typed) ...this trailer is the movie on speed. They give everything away. You almost donít need to spend $45 and a kidney (or however much a movie ticket is these days) to sip canned wine from a paper bag in a darkened theater while surrounded by a bunch of brats and their parents loudly talking at the screen. The trailer shows you the whole movie!"
"...But this is just the beginning, as Batman uncovers signs of a dangerous new
villain unlike anything Gotham has ever— IT'S THE JOKER
, alright?! And since his face is all over the fucking posters, I spoil that with no shame whatsoever."
OK, so Jake is just this regular dude who has this thing for the very righteous babe, Allison. And the two of them meet this gnarly old magician named Zebediah, who actually happens to be this creature-person exiled from the underground world, only there's no way you're supposed to know that yet, OK?
Showing the Kraken in the Clash of the Titans trailer is like asking a girl out with your dick hanging out.
My first response when somebody doesn't get a Hudsucker reference is to say, "Just see the movie." There's one big problem with that, however....its only DVD release was way back in 1999, in a lousy snapper case, on a despised flipper disc, with no bonus features other than "Interactive Menus" and "Scene Access." To make things worse, Warner Bros. placed a big spoiler for the film on the front cover.
Sooo....if you get it yourself, you're going to know the big twist before you start to play it, meaning I might as well spoil the whole thing for you right here. If you can find a way to see the film without seeing its own cover, then do so right away....otherwise, read on.
Watch The Mysterious Murderer. If you already saw it, don't spoil the ending. If you haven't seen it, you will never guess until the last moment that the mysterious murderer is Jack the Stranger

Coming up, in "The Gift Shop Sketch": the end of "The Gift Shop Sketch"! Shopkeeper:
Eh?! James Voysover:
But first, the bit before the end! Brain:
That's perfect! It's like you've met my aunt. Shopkeeper:
Yes! She's my aunt, too! Brain:
Daddy! James Voysover:
And now, the end! Shopkeeper:
Why don't we just split up and cover more ground? Voiceover:
Seriously? That was the second plot twist! Natalie:
Yeah, I'll go with Tom. Voiceover:
...And that was the third. Jeremy:
Of course you will. Natalie:
There's nothing going on between us! Voiceover:
Really? Well, since we're all sharing secrets, she kisses him later in the trailer. And then she dies.
"Cleveland? Who knew we would run into you, except everybody because Fox spoiled it in the promos?"
