These days it seems like watching a film trailer is like watching a 2 minute montage of a film and often spoils a dramatic twist or character.

I've given up on watching trailers and found great delight in going in blind. Anyone else with me here?

Hey! I actually agree with you on this one. But also, I've found that some trailers in particular heighten the film, and so it gives you high expectations of the film as well, by the time you've finished the film, it's a disappointment and not as good as you thought it to be.

I usually watch the trailers first before I decide to watch the actual film.

I'll usually watch the first "reveal" trailer and that's it. They usually give a decent impression of the tone of a movie without spoiling it as later trailers tend to do.

Have you ever felt that a trailer spoilt a film?

No but I MUST read reviews on IMDB (from the viewer perspective) and Rotten Tomatoes (from the professional critic perspective) first and then I leave a comment myself I actually enjoy it

Yeah, I am watching trailer now and then, despite the risk of spoilers. I am almost reading a description to the film before I decide to go to the cinema.

I often found film description texts reveal too little or aren't accurate enough

If it is too accurate, the film is too detailed described what would be annoying, as too much information ruins a film too. It is sufficient to know the raw information to gauge a visit to the cinema.

Trailers usually ruin films. My Favourite trailer was for Episode 7 (the first trailer)

I generally watch trailers before watch the film as it gives me more of an insight of what the film is about and what it is likely to be like, some films the trailer is the best and not the film but with others the film is really good and what expected it to be like from the trailer. If I don't like the look of the film from the trailer then won't watch it although it could be better than the trailer suggests.

I don't think that I have gone into many films without seeing the trailer first however some films you don't need to as you know what the film is roughly going to be like and if it is going to be good especially if it is a film series such as Bourne, Avengers, etc

Yes, absolutely. Imagine a film without a debut trailer or posters or anything like that...
