MORE IDEAS FROM The Reason Movie Trailers Give So Much Away
Movie studios spend millions marketing their product and show multiple versions of trailers to test audiences before releasing the final set of trailers that, more often than not, have the entire movie spelt out for the audience.

Contagion, Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 movie about a deadly pandemic has regained popularity due to the ongoing virus outbreak.
The movie is as much about the way disease gets amplified by people’s relationships to the truth, as it is about viral transmission.
