So the two Star Wars ones admitted that they weren't really spoilers. That's some good reporting. Lou.

How did Will Smith Ruin the plot of Last Man on Earth (1964), I mean The Omega Man (1971), I mean I Am Legend?

Huh, I was expecting Mel Gibson essentially making himself unemployable/unmarketable...spoiling his career along with whatever the upcoming movie was as it were

One long scrollable page if you're on mobile (or it was for me)

Spoiled?

I'll use the definition which implies rotted.

And the answer is always Hayden Christiansen.

How did it have no plot? Indiana Jones races Nazis to get a thing that eventually kills the Nazis. That was Raiders, one of the greatest movies ever.

Just because that one had Shia Leboef and CGI monkeys doesn't mean it didn't have a plot.

The story attached to it was funny, though.

Textbook reason why you abide by NDAs, even as an extra.

Weed and waiting for what felt like a decade after the movie came out to watch it made it seem not nearly as awful as people made it out to be. Out of all the things to nitpick about the movie, Leboef doesn't really rank for me before Ford phoning it again.

List fails without including Malcolm McDowell blurting out that he got to kill Kirk in Star Trek Generations.

For shame, IGN.
 
2021-04-18 11:03:22 PM  
The David Prowse thing doesn't really count. The line he delivered in the climactic scene of Empire Strikes Back was, "Obi-Wan killed your father."
The only people who knew the real line at the time were George Lucas, Gary Kurtz, and Lawrence Kasdan. They didn't even tell Mark Hamill until right before filming, so that he would have the right response to what he was being told. Prowse came up with different 'secrets' regularly, including the idea that Vader was really Luke's father. As it turned out, that particular spoiler is the one that happened to come true.
 
2021-04-18 11:05:24 PM  
I was dead the entire time and Luke's mother was a necrophiliac.

How dare you remind me of that movie.

So much promise. So little delivered.

The Avengers one cracked me up when I happened to see it awhile back.  I believe it was during a publicity tour between movies 3 & 4.

Interviewer: I know you've been filming a lot of #4 for awhile now, is there a lot of death in it?
Mark Ruffalo: Oh man, like, everybody dies!
Don Cheadle: Mark!!!?!  You can say that!!!
Mark Ruffalo: Oh, oops, I wasn't supposed to tell you.

The Tyler Nelson version of Crystal Skull is the best Indy Movie. Everyone knows that.

Nothing not already spoiled in the official trailers anyway.

List fails without Kevin Costner saying "Hi, I'm Kevin Costner, and I'll be starring in this movie."
 
2021-04-18 11:52:11 PM  
We could only kick off this list with Tom Holland

Listed here, after Alfred Molina
 
2021-04-18 11:53:45 PM  
Prowse? Really?

Character's name was literally "father."

I mean that movie was sold as "the death of Kirk" so the main baddie doing it isn't much of a spoiler.

Which is true, from a certain point of view.

Yeah, but it was originally a metaphor for clericalism that got out of hand.

Anyone familiar with the Infinity Gauntlet series already knew. It was no secret. The secret was how.

Frankly I was dissapointed in Endgame that it didn't more closely follow the series.  I mean, Celestials throwing a series of planets at Thanos and he just shrugs them off? Then the insane Nebula getting the gauntlet?  Oy!

When I think spoilers I always think of the trailer for Speed 2, which completely ended any suspense about what was going to happen with the ship.

The spoiler was how completely terrible the movie was, ib contrast to a pretty good book.

Was gonna say Tom Holland better be on the list. He's so bad at it but in a funny way. He just gets so excited talking about it. There's a highlight video of Benedict Cumberbatch in interviews basically stopping him from dropping spoilers. It's hilarious
 
2021-04-19 7:42:23 AM  
Most of those were kid's comicbook movies. It's like saying you spoiled an episode of Caillou.

Let's send Tom Holland back in time. Just for the lulz.

All of the things, if you were familiar with any of the things, you already knew
before you bought your ticket.

(i saw a film today, oh boy, but i just had to look, had i read the book)

/ if you read The Thanos Quest or The Infinity Gauntletor the Starlin run on Warlock(Adam),
you just know when Thanos punches his time clock in the morning, he puts in a 10 hour shift of killin'.

// as a sophomore in HS before the summer release, I had said to my classmates, "why is the most dangerous man in the galaxy interested in this nobody farm boy"?  I mean really? It's alluded to by his name.

///never collected on that pinky bet.

his favorite part of the film was getting to see his character Mace Windu die.


Yeah, but it was so out of the blue and unexpected....

Awesome scene in an otherwise mediocre movie.

Despite the cliche, he's the only black guy I can think of to die in a horror movie. But he was the rich boss, they always have to die. And LL Cool J lived.

Actually Sam died in Jurassic Park too and the rich guy lived so I guess I have no point.

In my experience, it's usually more of a 80s-90s slasher trope than a general horror trope, but one that a lot of horror creators delight in playing on nonetheless.
 
2021-04-19 3:08:45 PM  
This sort of counts I guess, but I recall Joseph Gordon-Levitt being asked point blank if he was really playing Robin in The Dark Knight RIses and the best reply he could muster was something like, "Come on, you know I can't talk about this." D'oh! By contrast, Marion Cotillard simply lied and said she wasn't Talia. I don't know why, but I say good for her on that.
 
2021-04-19 3:11:18 PM  
And of course, the best recent example of an actor going to great lengths to keep a secret...

I don't get the Will Smith thing. The two previous versions of that movie ended differently and he didn't say how the version he was in would end up. So he said he was going to be in a movie based on a book that already had two movies based on it? Whoa, Fresh Prince! You aren't making a straight remake? Neville is black in this version? How could that be?
