Cover art that contains major spoilers? (will contain spoilers, obviously)

the Hancock thread got me thinking, what other dvd cover art (front or back) contain a major spoiler? The only one's i can think of is the original Planet of the Apes and the original Friday the 13th
Spoiler:
the back shows that Mrs. Vorhess is the killer

Also only spoilerize the discription.

I have that Friday the 13th DVD, and it doesn't spoil anything. It was a blind buy for me and I just figured she was one of the camp counselors or one of the owners of the camp trying to defend herself from Jason.

Phone Booth shows the killer on the cover, even though his or her identity isn't revealed until the very end of the film.

Spoiler:
mainly thanks to 24 that Kiefer was the killer, since you can easily recoignize his voice as soon as he talks?

Babylon 5 - Season 2
Spoiler:
shows Delenn after her Chrysalis transformation. At least the first couple of episodes retained the original credits that didn't show her after the transformation... or did they? I remember some of the episodes having the syndicated credits instead of the broadcast credits.

Not cover art, but the back cover blurb for Rosemary's Baby gives away the fact that

Redbelt, interestingly enough.

Spoiler:
Shows the crowd outside the ring, Ejiofor standing victorious and bloody in street clothes, and the champion fighter in his ju-jitsu gi laying on the floor at his feet.

I've always thought that the new Blu-Ray version of LA Confidential was. It pays homage to the fact that although Basinger's part was quite small, it was made to be much, much, much bigger than it really was.

Having not seen the movie myself I'm going to guess

It's a romantic comedy, we might have guessed that anyway.

Rudy

Spoiler:
The cover shows Rudy being carried off the field in a Notre Dame uniform. So you know he obviously makes it and does well.

Angel Season 5
Spoiler:
Reveals that Spike is present in the season. Lessens the impact of what Spike does in Buffy Season 7 for those who happen to see the cover well in advance.


20th Century Fox loves to spoil shit with TV on DVD-- covers and menus.

Ehhh....it's not like the movie was going to go in any other direction.
