Have you ever seen a film poster, seen the film, then realised the poster actually gives the film’s ending a way? It’s a bit crazy to think that quite a few film posters are basically massive spoilers. Here are 7 film posters that gave away the ending.
King Kong, 1933
The climax of the classic King Kong sees the colossal gorilla scale the Empire State Building and fight off attacking planes. So why was this climactic scene depicted on the poster? Gives it away a bit…
The Wicker Man, 1973
If you’ve never seen the cult classic that is The Wicker Man before, have a look at the poster and guess what happens to the giant wicker man. Yeah, the poster totally gives the film’s superb ending away.
Planet of the Apes, 1968
Planet of the Apes has a massive twist at the end that you never saw coming…unless of course you saw the poster for it first.
Star Wars Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, 2005
Another poster that gives away a climactic scene. If you see the poster before watching the film, this fight between Obi-wan and Anakin doesn’t have the same impact.
The found footage sci-fi horror’s poster actually depicts the film’s final, spoilerish scene.
The Impossible, 2012
A film about a family determined be reunited with one another has on its poster…a family reunited with one another. Easy to guess what happens in this film…
Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 2011
Planet of the Apes films like giving their plots away! The poster for Rise of the Planet of the Apes basically shows how the whole film plays out.
