The Impossible (2012)
SPOILER: The spanish poster (not this one here), clearly shows the familiy reunited after the tsunami.
While others poster shows how this familily got split, why not in Spain? Remind that the director and the real family are Spanish!
Citizen Kane (1941)
SPOILER: In Family Guy's episode 'Screwed The Pooch', Peter taped something over a Citizen Kane VHS, and says "it's his sled, it was a sled from when he was a kid. There, I just saved you two long, boobless hours"
Maybe there's should be some respect for one of the deaerest classics ever, but you know Peter!
SPOILER: Two weeks before the released of the movie, the John Williams soundtrack arrived to the stores. Some of the tracks didn't let anything to the imagination, like "Qui Jon's Noble End"
Maybe "Qui Jon goes to the light" would be less revealing!
SPOILER: The innocents cinemagoers of Portugal went to the movies, to watch O homem que matou a própria mãe wich means 'The Man Who Killed His Mother. '
Really???? No better title?? Anybody??
The Crying Game (1992)
SPOILER:In The Simpsons episode 'Marge In Chains', Mayor Quimby shows how tone-deaf he is to his electorate by revealing in the speech that, "in other news, the chick in The Crying Game is really a man."
Damn you Mayor Quimby!! I will not vote for you!!!
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
SPOILER:The cameo by Robert Downey, Jr as Tony Stark was meant to be a treat for the faithful fans who stayed to the end of the credits. That was, until the boys from the marketing department discovered its existence and slapped it in the trailer.
Poor people who thaught that Tony Stark would actually be in the movie!!
SPOILER: Having gone to all the trouble of keeping Kevin Spacey's name out of the film's marketing, it must have been galling to David Fincher when the MTV Movie Awards awarded the actor as Best Villain.
Thanks MTV! Why don't you put some music videos, and let this people do their jobs!?
Arlington Road (1999)
SPOILER: Any film so predicated on a simple yes-or-no question ("Is Tim Robbins a terrorist?") should really try not to provide an answer in the trailer ("Yes, he is.")
But are you sure he is?? really?? because mayb- ok, I got the message!!
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
SPOILER: If the original title of Stephen King's novella, Rita Hayworth And Shawshank Redemption, gave a cryptic hint towards the film's ending, spare a thought for the people of Finland, who showed up to see Rita Hayworth - Avain Pakoom, aka Rita Hayworth: Key To Escape.
Keep your eyes in the poster!! ssshhhhh there's a hole in there shhhhhh
SPOILER:Sean Bean's supposed corpse was still warm from the pre-credits sequence when the titles gave him second billing behind Pierce Brosnan. Generous for a cameo… or proof he's not really dead?
Sean Bean is never dead!! Deal with it!!!
Free Willy (1993)
SPOILER:The ultimate in spoilerific marketing campaigns. Everything from the title to the trailer to the poster left little doubt how this one was going to end
The end of the movie is righ there, for the love of God!!!!
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
SPOILER:In fairness, the marketing for Star Trek Into Darkness went out of its way to hide the real identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's villain. Yet it was exactly difficult to guess, given that J.J. Abrams had publically mooted the return of Khan as long ago as 2009 when he said, "Certain people are destined to cross paths and come together, and Khan is out there ... even if he doesn't have the same issues."
I don't care!! Hi Ben!!! :D
The Negotiator (1998)
SPOILER:In 1998, pitching Samuel L. Jackson against Kevin Spacey was like Hollywood's equivalent of Ali vs Forman. It didn't need a trailer that clumsily revealed that the antagonists end up working together to defeat a common foe.
I don't negotiate with spoiler terrorists!!!
Children of Men (2006)
SPOILER:With a trailer that couldn't hide the story's belly-full of surprise, the entire first act became a protracted exercise in world-building.
I see pregnant people!
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
SPOILER:13-year-old newcomer Joey King gave an interview six months before the film's release in which she confirmed, "I play young Talia al Ghul. I can't give too much away because I promised Mr. Nolan I wouldn't say anything. There are too many secrets about the character and the movie."
You should't even say that name, you little--!!!!!
Terminator Salvation (2009)
SPOILER:With the Terminator fanbase's attention focussed on Christian Bale stepping up to the big role of John Connor in his first post-Dark Knight blockbuster, was it really necessary to use the trailer to a) put the emphasis on Sam Worthington's mystery man and b) reveal that he's not really a man at all but a Terminator.
Sam Worthington wanted to be a real boy!!!
Cast Away (2000)
SPOILER:: It's easier here to say what wasn't spoiled by the film's notorious trailer. Namely, nothing. The entire film - down to the last-act reveal that Tom Hanks escapes the island - is condensed into a bite-sized two-minute version.
I should have stay with the trailer, instead of watching this whole boring movie!!!
SPOILER:: Oh, Marvel, when will you ever learn to stop actors from talking to the press? This time, it's Robert Redford, who waxed lyrical last year about taking on the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. boss Alexander Pierce. Why did he take the role? "I like the idea of playing a villain. I did that just because it’s a different thing for me to do.”
Here's another different thing: Shut your mouth!!!
