I like watching trailers also. It might be an artifact of my childhood - my dad would always get us to the theater late, so we'd usually miss them (and sometimes the first few minutes of the movie). Also, the vast majority of trailers are for movies I will never see, so being spoiled isn't a big deal.

Well, maybe none. I haven't actually seen it yet (though I plan to). I just assumed, since that's what Hollywood does now. Someone you thought was a good guy invariably turns out to be bad or something is revealed near the end that undercuts everything we thought we knew. If Prometheus avoids that, awesome.
Embrace being a laggard. If you don't watch movies until after they have been out for 1-2 years you have completely forgotten the trailer.
Note: This is not a good strategy for people who like to have conversations about current films.
Side note: Who want's to talk about Tree of Life? I just saw it last weekend!
Every now and then on the podcast, Kelly Wand admits his opinion of the movie has been affected by having seen the trailer. Tom and I dutifully pummel him for this, but does he learn? No.

That's an admirable attempt, but it's still impossible to make 2001 look anything but as slow and ponderous as it is!
That was hilarious, and sadly too true.
