The responsibility to not disappoint the audience is greater than if you were giving information gradually.
And with that greater responsibility comes the greater likelihood of disappointment.
Personally, If I hadn't known of most of the controversial bits in ST XI long before I actually saw it, I probably would have freaked right there in the theater. Foreknowledge allowed me to deal with all that shit early, and truly enjoy the movie for what it was.
