The Hollywood blockbuster marketing line is a finely tuned machine, keeping audiences stoked without ever letting too much slip out.
Well, that’s what they want you to think, at any rate. In reality the way modern movies are marketed is a little messed up. You can guarantee in the month leading up to release we’ll be bombarded with trailers and TV spots containing everything we need to piece together the plot note for note. And with the internet allowing instantaneous discussion between super-fans, it’s hard for a film to make it to cinemas without someone in the audience knowing all it has to offer.
It’s so easy to piece together what upcoming films have in store that someone with nothing better to do could run through ten of the biggest releases of the next couple of years and make solid predictions of what surprises to expect. And, on a complete tangent, today I bring you ten aces upcoming movies are no doubt hiding up their sleeves.
Although there is rampant speculation throughout this list, there is the distinct possibility some of these points will be correct so it’s worth treading lightly lest there be inadvertent SPOILERS.
