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 »
You’ve got to feel a bit sorry for Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. The previous Spider-Man franchise had three movies in which to prove itself, but these guys were quietly shuffled off the Sony back-lot after just two.
We’ll never get to see The Amazing Spider-Man franchise reach it’s full potential. It’s been kicked conclusively under the carpet in favour of a new collaboration between Sony and Marvel Studios, with Jon Watts and Tom Holland stepping in to take the reins while Webb and co. have had to make themselves scarce.
The sad bit is: their films really weren’t that bad. The big problems (rehashing Raimi and spending too long teasing the Sinister Six) surely came from Sony, while the cast and crew made the most of the material they were given. While they’re not quite ‘Amazing’ as the series’ hubristic moniker would have us believe, »

Marvel has released a preview of The Amazing Spider-Man & Silk: The Spider(Fly) Effect #1, the first chapter of an all new Infinite Comic Series adventure which sees Spidey and Silk having to work together when they’re accidentally thrown back in time to just before they got their powers.
Can they get along without irreparably altering the space-time continuum? What will happen when Peter comes face-to-face with his long lost Uncle Ben? Can they make it back to the present day Without wiping out their own powers forever? One thing is for certain – the Marvel Universe’s past is about to get a double dose of webslingers!
Fan-favorite creators Robbie Thompson (Silk, Venom: Spaceknight) and artist Todd Nauck (Nightcrawler, Amazing Spider-Man) weave a tale of the Amazing Anachronistic Arachnids!

It seems Disney is determined to continue down the path of re-imagining some of their classic animated features for the live-action format. This time we have word that Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Help) is in early talks to play a younger version of 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella De Vil.
Like Maleficent, this will be an origin tale for the future pooch-botherer, and will most likely humanize her in some way before detailing the events that shaped her into the type of person that attempts to skin over 100 dogs to make herself a coat.
Maleficent made quite a bit of cash despite its mixed critical response, so it’s understandable that the studio is looking at something like this to follow it up. Plus, Stone is obviously a great talent – though I’m not sure I’d buy her as such a ruthless character.
No director is on board just yet, »

Dolby Laboratories is quick to the table with the burgeoning drive toward 4K Ultra HD, the next-generation viewing format with four times the resolution of HD and the much-ballyhooed high dynamic range (Hdr), which produces brilliant highlights, vibrant colors and greater contrast on compatible displays.
The company announced deals at CES with Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures and MGM to enhance their Ultra HD releases.
The company and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (Sphe) on Jan. 6 announced a collaboration to release Sphe titles in Dolby Atmos over the coming years, including Sphe’s first films to be released in the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc format. Dolby Atmos, according to a press release, “delivers captivating audio that places and moves specific sounds anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience.”
