It’s always a nice wink at an unknowing audience when a movie reveals a huge spoiler during the movie itself. It’s harmless fun that most people don’t even catch because they don’t know enough about what’s happening in the movie yet. But on future watches it gives a little extra chuckle layer for people to enjoy.
Yesterday saw some Star Wars excitement as a video circulated suggesting one of The Force Awakens’ biggest unanswered questions was actually answered in Disney Infinity’s movie play set. Nah. Didn’t happen.
Some of us love spoilers—but some of us really, really hate them. Spoilers have become an especially charged topic of late, with the new Star Wars movie among other things. So it’s a good thing you can sign on to a new Kickstarter for SpoilerFree and erase those spoilers from your brain!
It’s called foreshadowing! But also in today’s super plot sensitive culture and measly minute time limit on not knowing what happened on what movie or TV show, it’s also effectively a spoiler. Luckily, some filmmakers can hide those spoilers in plain sight and we’re none the wiser. So many movies basically tell us…
A couple years ago, I wanted to find out the name of the actor who played my favorite character on House of Cards, so I googled the character. Big mistake. The very first Google search result was the character’s House of Cards Wikia page—including date of death. I didn’t even have to click on the link. Spoiled.
You can’t move on the modern-day internet without bumping into a spoiler or two. Whether it’s Game of Thrones, The Force Awakens or the ending to Citizen Kane, it’s all too easy to trip up over a plot point that you’d rather not know about. If you’re desperately trying to stay in the dark about an upcoming movie or…
The next season of Game of Thrones will be unique—a show that’s been so heavily dependent on its book source material will suddenly be venturing out into unknown territory, with no more books to adapt. What’s going to happen next? Here’s everything we’ve been able to find out.
It’s something we’ve all felt. The low, sinking kick in the metaphorical groin when you’ve read some asshole’s tweet or post, expounding on some previously unknown spoiler. But maybe, social media doesn’t need to be such a minefield of potential despair.
You know how it is with big video games these days, every one comes with it's own fancy 'collector's edition' filled with related paraphernalia. Batman: Arkham Knight is no exception - but it might be one of the few to potentially have a major plot point about it spoiled by said collectors edition.
I'm in the mood for a good classic 90s movie tonight, and I see The Usual Suspects is on Netflix! Score! I have a vague memory that it was good, but I forget how it ended. Do you happen to know?
Spoilers, probably. I wouldn't know because well, I don't want to know more. But this video is supposedly leaked footage from Game of Thrones season 5 (can't wait!) and it shows six people being led to their death by fire. Like, seriously. Hell on Earth doesn't even begin to describe how hot this fire burns.
In the age of the Netflix binge-watch, no plot twist is sacred. Avoiding spoilers has become nearly impossible. So instead of fighting it, Netflix has embraced our brave new, spoiler-ridden world with a sub-site that pummels you with all of the biggest spoilers in cinematic and television history. It is incredible.
Spoiler Alert: Genre Fans love Spoilers. They love reading them, they love avoiding them - hell, our desire for more even saw the media sending Camera drones over the Episode VII movie set last week just for another sweet spoiler hit. But why do we crave getting a glimpse at upcoming stories so much?
Scared to look at Twitter because you missed True Detective last night? No problem. If you use TweetDeck, you can mute the show to live a blissful, spoiler-free day.
Gravity looks pretty damn terrifying. Most philosophers would tell us that for a film to really be chilling to the bone, it must call to mind a real-life existential fear that's buried within our souls. So Gravity is tugging at some deeply held fears we've got, then, right? Well, according to real astronaut Michael…
Hulu, for all its good intentions and fairly solid stream quality, kind of sucks. It doesn't have enough TV shows, it doesn't have enough episodes, you still have to watch commercials even when you pay for Hulu Plus but worst of all, sometimes those commercials you're forced to sit through are about future episodes of…
In the previous century, when everyone watched TV shows at the exact same time, we didn't have to worry about ruining suspenseful plots. You either saw it or didn't. But thanks to technology, we live in a dangerous time. Equally devoted fans of a show might be live-watchers—always up to the latest episode—or they…
Along with propagating inane hashtags like #NameYourDickAfterAMovie*, Twitter is also horribly ruthless when it comes to spoiling movies and TV shows. To prevent an unwelcome spoiler, you have to basically abstain from Twitter when a show like Breaking Bad comes on or when a big movie like The Dark Knight Rises comes…
A white Rubik's cube? Square snow flakes? Some sort of stress ball? Not quite. The answer is a spoilerishly interesting theory for the upcoming movie Super 8.
