Ah, but that can backfire on you. Here's an example.
I'm with a lot of people here. When Heart shaped Box came out I read the flyleaf before I was convinced, but I wanted 20th Century Ghosts and Horns without much pre information. All SK books just get bought. Most other authors need a synopsis. With movies it's simply a question of if I'm interested (and if I can persuade hubby I'm right). TV is pretty much the same.
I also don't like spoilers. Idk about everyone else but i get really exctied before i start a book or movie i havent read/seen yet & the less ik about it the better.
A trailer can whet your appetite or get you all hot & bothered for nothing.
Or just mislead you.
Take a bow: 28 Days Later/28 Weeks Later, Inglorious Basterds, Aliens
Hang your head in shame: Prometheus, Reign of Fire.
So glad I didn't miss you: As Good as it Gets.
Books are different - I like to know something about what I'm about to read.
Probably because I'm less adventurous in my choice of books
A good trailer can really make the movie experience better. I remember seeing the teaser for the Dark Knight and thinking how epic it was. The Social Network had a brilliant trailer as well.
It depends. Usually I like my tabula to be rasa. In cases where an old classic has seeped through over time, I'll read the history of the author, translation notes, if any, and try to understand the zeitgeist. Generally I hold to the adage that ignorance is bliss.
