Yesterday we saw the release of images of Black Panther and Winter Soldier on the set of "Captain America: Civil War". About a week before that, we got treated to the news of who is going to be Captain America's side and who is on Iron Man's side of the conflict. At one point it was cool to see some early tidbits and pictures of movies before any trailers were released, but now it's to the point where the pictures are ruining the way you see the movie. From green screen back drops, to ropes and wires. These techniques are used to make the viewer invest in what's happening in the movie. After watching certain things and then seeing it transcend in the movie, you then start to remember how the scene was done and you end up not really appreciating what you are watching.
Below are some of the images that were released yesterday:
As you can see, we find out the the Winter Soldier at some point ends up working hand in hand with Captain American and Black Panther.
Now, for some reason the studios are getting into the spoiler department. They are releasing trailers with spoilers and/or twists that should have been kept under wraps and it would have made for a better surprise and probably a better movie ("Terminator: Genisys"). They saturate the internet with images of the cast from set with uploads of clips after clips from the finished product itself. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is the perfect example. There were over 13 movie clips and over 15 trailers/TV spots. After all that, when you watch the movie, you've already seen 25% of it or more. This does not include the release of the poster with cast credits which was dissected. Yes, I understand, that was inevitable, but it's a clear sign they are trying to keep things under wraps and having secret scenes being shot, so why post it and if they had to, why keep it a secret.
Yes, it's awesome to get a little taste of what's to come, but at the same time, is it worth it watching a movie and seeing scenes that you've already seen or know when the scenes you seen or saw being made are coming up in the movie. It goes from a movie watching experience to a scavenger hunt. It's not truly enjoyable. I loved watching everything that occurred in Age of Ultron, it was not as great as "Marvel's The Avengers", but it was enjoyable, but I know that I would have enjoyed it more if I didn't know what was coming up and what parts were missing from the trailers.
After Age of Ultron I stayed away from clips and internet rumors for "Ant-Man". "Terminator: Genisys" ruined it for me with just the second trailer, but from what I am seeing now in posts on Moviepilot and other sites, it seems like it's on high demand to dish out all the leaks, pics and all the spoiler info you can supply.
I've only seen the reveal trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and I will refuse to look at and/or read anything regarding the plot or character relationships. It's a shame, cause I enjoy a little surprise when watching a movie and I know many of you do to, and feel as I do.
On that note, I'm putting my dedication into providing whatever it is the readers want to see and read. Even if it means spoiling a some movies for myself. Other than ANYTHING having to do with the Kardashians, which I refuse to do.
At the end of the day, we all get a choice on whether or not to read or see what ever it is that is posted on line about our favorite movies, but at the same time, it's the responsibility of the individual writing the article to prevent from issuing any spoiler info or pictures before giving the reader fair warning. I've seen posts with the main title picture being a spoiler and then start by saying that the article contains possible spoilers. Which we know is bad etiquette.
