I don’t know if the problem is me, growing old and grumpy, or trailers nowadays are really too long and spoiler-filled as I think.
Nowadays, I avoid at all costs watching trailers for movies and shows that I’m already interested in, and usually watch only the beginning of it, for the ones I don’t know yet. That’s because when you watch, let’s say, the newest trailer for a upcoming Star Wars movie, you end up knowing so much that during most of the movie, you won’t be surprised at all. And what’s the point?
Yes, I know that they have to build up the hype, but putting all the funniest jokes and the best action scenes at the trailer, actually makes me think I don’t need to spend money to go see a movie. And it’s not only me, my wife absolutely hates trailers, even more than I.
Again, I don’t know if it’s just me, and trailers have always been like this, or if they are making it more spoilery than they used to.
What do you think? Am I the only one, or do you agree with me?
