Movie trailers are everywhere: on TV, in the mall, in front of other movies, to name a few. Sometimes you even see unwanted trailers before videos on sites like YouTube, making it difficult to avoid spoilers before a movie is released. The problem is that no one wants to pay money to see a movie when they feel like they’ve seen 90% of it.

Understandably, the studios want to push upcoming releases as hard as possible. After all, they need to make their money—and more—back. Minions: The Rise of Gru, for example, reportedly cost $85 million, and that doesn’t include marketing costs. But trailers that reveal too much of the film are becoming an annoying trend, and those are the worst culprits, according to Reddit.
