Re: Are many of you going to "spoil" yourselves next week?

I've grown a bit cold on the movie based the advertising campaign so my strategy is to read the spoilers tonight/tomorrow, let it soak in and hopefully by the time I see it on the 15th I'll sort of just accepted it all and just let myself enjoy the spectacle of it by that point.

I have little willpower, but I'll try to resisit. In the end, I'll more than likely read everything posted about the film.

Nah, I'm content to wait to see the film. I'd rather get my info as the film unfolds.

For the record, it's now 10:46 am on April 23rd in Sidney Australia. I guess some of you won't be visiting this site tomorrow, especially since spoilers will probably start trickling in, oh about the time for my morning commute (central time).

Re: Are many of you going to "spoil" yourselves next week?

There was only one major spoiler I had to know, now I do and while I am disappointed, it's not a deal breaker.

Hello all, I am new to this forum. I have been reading material on here for a few months now, but finally decided to stop being lazy and set up an account. So, pleased to meet all of you.

With the film premiering next week in Australia, we all know what is coming. All mysteries will be revealed.

I, for one, think this film is definitely going to have some tie to Wrath of Khan. But, the constant speculation has gotten almost too hard to take.

I want so badly to just sneak a peak and find out the true answers. I think we all want to know which theory is correct, etc.

So, how many of you are going to "get spoiled" next week?

Perhaps a better question would be how many of you think it will be possible to avoid spoilers, especially if the villain turns out to be a certain passenger on the Botany Bay?
Welcome!

I have had as many spoilers as I can take. If I read the 28-minute thread and came away wishing I hadn't read it. I've told this story in here before, but I enjoyed Insurrection because I knew very little about the story. Just that it was "fountain of youth." Contrast that to Star Trek (2009), where I knew Vulcan was destroyed, and it ruined the lead-up. As soon as they said "emergency on Vulcan," I knew how it would end. I wasn't captivated by it at all. I have a framework, what I call it, created by the spoilers, expectations, for how this movie will turn out. And they will play into or against those things. I have learned my lesson. After I see this movie, before the next one, you will not see me in here clicking and responding to threads. I want it to remain a secret. I will see the teaser trailer and that's all. I don't want breakdowns telling me
I want to be shocked and captivated by the movie when I see it.

Re: Are many of you going to "spoil" yourselves next week?

I am going in cold; I think I'll have more fun that way. I haven't even watched any of the trailers. All I know about the movie is that it's going to have an excellent performance from Beckham Cummerbund, and that's all I need to know.

Re: Are many of you going to "spoil" yourselves next week?

I was going to try and stay as pure as possible, even quit coming here but a couple of friends thought it was necessary to text me spoilers after the Sydney premiere. After that I also read some things online.
So I still don't know many details but I do know stuff.

Re: Are many of you going to "spoil" yourselves next week?

I guess the only thing I want to know is the true identity of Cumberbatch's character. Because if it's the obvious character that shall not be named, then I want to know that going in, so I'm not waiting for them to do the reveal instead of enjoying the build up.

If it's something out of left field, then I want to go in cold.


Anyone care to help me out?

^I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. Someone with more spoiler knowledge will have to help.
