Warning for anyone who has not yet seen Seven

If there is anyone on the board who has not seen Seven (or knows the ending) I warn you not to watch TNT soon there are huge spoilers in the commercials. It says
Spoiler:
starring Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Spacey as it shows him in handcuffs and the prison uniform.

That's why it's in spoiler tags.

Not really that big a spoiler, considering the film's been out for over seven years now, and the actor playing the 'mystery' role has won two Oscars since it came out.

I didn't know, and the spoiler tags were messed up when I first read the post, so I know now.

But the REAL ending is not spoiled, so still catch the flick. The ending blew me away.

If a movie relies on you not knowing something this minor, then it isn't a good movie. Certainly not worth missing a good NBA game over this.

Spoiler:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't that in the theatrical trailer for the movie?

It doesn't rely on it much at all. It does keep the villain mysterious throughout the first half or so, and when it was released, this actor wasn't advertised. So, all that's lost is the little sense of "ooh" surprise the viewer can get. The movie works all the same.

Honestly, it's not THAT big of a deal. Really.

I mean, it would have been a lot worse if it said
Spoiler:
starring Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Gwyneth Paltrow as it shows her head in the box.

Come on. Is that really a spoiler anymore? What happens in a film is a spoiler but who stars in it is only a spoiler when it first comes out, not almost a decade later. Like The Crying Game. That ceased to be a spoiler when the lead got nominated for a particular Oscar catagory. Some things are not meant to be spoilers forever.

wouldn't it only be a spoiler if you didn't know spacey was in the movie? obviously after a half an hour with no spacey and the movie being about cops and a killer, it's would be apparent to me that the remaining actor is the killer. well that's how i see it atleast. remember when the trailers for the sixth sense showed that bruce willis was in the movie, man that ruined it

The statute of limitations for spoilers shouldn't be more than a calendar year or so. If you have avoided seeing Fight Club, Usual Suspects, etc. w/out it being "spoiled" by now, kudos to you. But you Seven has been around for a long time. Should no one discuss the ending of Casablanca for fear of spoilers?
