From Terminator films and Jurassic World through to trailers with the ending in them...

One of the trailers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the latest to ignite grumbles about just how much is given away in promos for movies.

This list looks at 25 films where the trailer has given away more than it really should in its promos - and it goes without saying that spoilers lie ahead for each of the movies. Don't read or click on individual entries of films you've not seen if you don't want to be spoiler sullied!

25. Jurassic World

Director Colin Trevorrow was amongst those who expressed disappointment at this one particular promo for Jurassic World. In it, we see Chris Pratt riding on his motorbike, alongside velcoraptors that surprisingly don't appear to be eating him. Presented out of context, the scene just looked a little daft. But »

[Sundance Review] The Fundamentals of Caring

25 January 2016 6:59 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Films centered around disabled people often focus on the inevitable demise of their main characters. Not so in the bracingly optimistic road movie The Fundamentals of Caring, a witty and at times very funny bromance between Craig Roberts’ wheelchair-bound teenager and his carer, a perfectly-cast Paul Rudd. Writer-director Rob Burnett, adapting Jonathan Evison’s The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, finds nuggets of comedy in the blindspots in your typical accounts of degenerative diseases.

Rudd’s Ben is a former writer who, after a tragedy involving his son, decides to change track and become a $9-an-hour carer. His first client is potty-mouthed Trevor, a Brit with muscular dystrophy and a caustic humor who throws insults like confetti. At first, Trevor hates leaving his living room and the American TV he watches so much. But when his single mother needs to travel to Atlanta on business, he warms to the idea of »

Craig Roberts launches production company; readies second feature

21 January 2016 5:16 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Cliff Edge Pictures will develop and produce film and TV projects, starting with the Submarine star’s next feature as a director.

British actor Craig Roberts, who made his directorial debut with Just Jim last year, is launching a London-based production outfit titled Cliff Edge Pictures with that film’s producers, Pip Broughton and Adrian Bate.

Roberts is perhaps best known for his lead role in Richard Ayoade’s 2010 feature Submarine but has since taken roles in major Us comedies including 22 Jump Street and Neighbors as well as Amazon original series Red Oaks and Sundance title The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving.

Cliff Edge Pictures will develop, raise finance and produce film and TV projects with Roberts as creative lead, and will kick off its slate with his second feature as a director, In My Oils, which is in the early stages of pre-production.

In My Oils has a script penned by Roberts and will be set »

‘Mark of the Witch’ DVD Review

20 January 2016 4:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ana Paula Redding, David Landry, Lillian Pennypacker, Michael St. Michaels, Nancy Wolfe | Written and Directed by Jason Bognacki

There’s a joke in Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, the under-seen but superlative comedy about the making of a fictional eighties horror programme, that is too good not to repeat at any given opportunity. In it, the show’s producer, played by Richard Ayoade, claims that due to episodes running far too short, any scene without dialogue was considered for slow motion. Given its own brief running time of just eighty minutes and its predilection for the special effect, one wonders if Mark of the Witch was produced under a similar ethos.

Mark of the Witch portrays Jordyn (Ana Paula Redding), a young woman who keeps having weird and wacky experiences of a not entirely pleasant nature. Turns out, she’s being harassed/possessed by a demonic presence. There’s not »

Richard Ayoade takes his desert-dry snark to France; Derren Brown investigates social compliance; Brian Cox and Dara Ó Briain interview Tim Peake. Plus: fifth series of Ruth Jones’s comedy-drama

Richard Ayoade takes his desert-dry snark to France, staying at l’Hotel, the opulent site of Oscar Wilde’s death. Leaving that shrine to Left Bank literary chic, he heads for the Montparnasse tower to look at the Eiffel tower, before going on a scooter tour, eating calf’s head casserole, drinking absinthe and learning about cordon bleu cookery, fine art and bespoke perfume. Trying not to simply stand there helpless with laughter as Ayoade relentlessly undermines his own enterprise is this week’s companion, Mel Giedroyc. Jack Seale
