We've all been there; you hear about a movie coming out that piques your interest, so you watch the trailer to see if it looks as interesting as it sounds. But instead of a bite-sized nugget to whet your appetite, you are force-fed the entire plot. 

Learning your lesson, you avoid trailers. “They spoil too much,” you say, the way a child might bubble out some half-intelligible coos, and instead only allow an upcoming film to advertise to you by way of its poster. It's a two-dimensional, motionless image; surely now you're safe from spoilers.

You fool. You complete moron. Perhaps the safety of colorful children's toys is the only place left that can offer a respite from the onslaught of spoilers. Alas, the plastic betrays you as well.
