Editorial: Goddamn Movie Spoilers

D1F347B9-A7F9-4085-950B-E4334889D440

The entire time I’ve been writing about film, I keep coming back to the idea that through marketing like trailers, we see WAY too much of any given film before it comes out. I want to know as little as possible walking into a movie. Especially movies like Avengers: Infinity War that are so highly anticipated by nerds like myself. Unfortunately, more than a few times per year over the past 5 years or so , there will be at least one or two moments, where I say to myself “Fuck! I didn’t want to KNOW that!” Or “Fuck! I didn’t want to SEE that”.

Ill give you a specific example without spoiling things myself.  There is that really cool moment at the end of the final Avengers: Infinity War trailer where Cap is holding back Thanos with all his might. Here it is:

812F1B06-A9D6-46A8-B382-BAD67CA61ADA

We’re all wondering: What’s  going on here?! IS THIS THE END OF CAP? Thanos is MUCH stronger than him. Is Thanos toying with him? Is somebody going to come and rescue Cap at the last minute? Or is something completely different going?

Unfortunately for me, because of the random TV spots that are everywhere these days leading up to this movie, the context surrounding that scene was spoiled for me.  You would never guess in a million years what’s what’s going on and it’s really,  really cool. But it’s something I wish I didn’t know. It’s just really frustrating when you look forward to something like this so much and you want to go into it as fresh as possible.  For the past few weeks on YouTube, every day there’s a new Infinity War promo or clip with a new piece of dialogue or a new scene. I don’t watch any of them and I try to avoid any and all promos like the plague. The last trailer I watched was the last major trailer they put out which ended in the scene I’m talking about here; Cap and Thanos. It just sucks that movie studios feel the need to spoil some really cool moments to sell the tickets. The lesson here is, when selling a film that’s guaranteed to make big bucks like Avengers: Infinity War: Less is more.

TRAILER COMMENTARY : Avengers: Infinity War

 

BC51AAE2-57B7-4B7F-A3C8-2ACE8548333E

Marvel dropped the new and final Avengers: Infinity War trailer on us before we all have our minds blown when the movie comes out on April 27! So, I decided to do a trailer commentary! Pointing out interesting things from the comics, making predictions, and just giving my thoughts on the awesomeness that is this trailer. I pause a few times throughout the trailer to explain some more in depth concepts. You can just listen to my commentary on it’s own, but I highly recommend pulling up the trailer and following along with me as I go through the trailer. Man, April 27 can’t get here soon enough! I know there’s a lot of hype and a lot og high expectations, but I’m going to play the optimist and say this one is gonna live up to the hype. I have the trailer posted below ans my commentary posted after that. I’d love some feedback, so feel free to comment.

By the way, where the hell is Hawkeye?!

 

Here’s my commentary:

So much to love here… Just, as fans that fact that we’re getting this movie is mind blowing. I think Iron Man’s new armor looks very cool. EW is actually a great magazine for this kind of stuff. Very geek friendly. I get a lot of stuff from them. I know they have a whole exclusive article on the movie to go along with these covers, so it’s probably worth checking out. You can’t EW on iTunes through the App Store or anywhere magazines are sold.
