I was watching "Nothing But Trailers" on INHD just now and they showed the trailer for a new Will Ferrell movie that I hadn't heard much about yet, and it looked good, about a guy that finds out that there's someone narrating his life story. It was a great concept and funny trailer and all the sudden they drop a big honking plot point on me! They didn't need to, I was already hooked! I had to change the channel before I saw anything more, and I had to go to imdb to find out what the name was.

So as a warning, please turn away from the screen if you see this at a theater, get to the lobby, cover your ears and go "la la la" in your head, anything!

This is worst example I've seen of a trailer that reveals too many plot points! Beware!

I saw the trailer too and it reminded me very much of The Truman Show with Jim Carrey.

I know what you are talking about, but I don't think anything "major" was revealed at all, and what was revealed actually made it more interesting.

I will definitley see it.

no copyrights for titles of movies.

i believe you could make a movie and call it anything you want
although the legal costs could be bad if you named it star wars
