Top 10 Ways to Avoid Movie Spoilers

These might seem obvious and won't guarantee that you wouldn't get spoilers, but even so, these might lessen the chance of getting spoilers and might lessen the spoilers you'll receive. Just accept the fact that spoilers can't be prevented.

The Top Ten

1 Watch the movie on the first day of its release

It is a real chore to watch a movie on the first day especially a movie where you have to worry about being spoiled, long lines, cramped theater, and having to buy ticket online a week before the movie comes out in order to ensure you get a ticket.

When you watch Endgame on opening night so you don't have to worry about avoiding spoilers: It's a simple spell but quite unbreakable.

This one is super obvious, unless you don't have the time to watch it or all the tickets are sold for that day.

Good idea

2 Avoid Googling the movie or anything related to it

Just turn off your internet aka cut off your oxygen supply until you see the movie. - TriggerTrashKid

This one is obvious. If you don't want to stay away from the internet but you still don't want spoilers, then just avoid googling the movie. - Misfire

3 Stay away from the internet

Like TheTopTens. - TriggerTrashKid

Especially Social Media, that is your main concern, your usually save searching for the movie though google, yahoo, or other search engine sites, the main concern is memes related to the movie, like what happened with Infinity War - germshep24

A lot of people love to give out major spoilers on the internet. - Misfire

4 Avoid talking to or going near people who could potentially spoil you

If you don't have annoying friends that like talking about movies a lot and thus spoil them your guaranteed to avoid spoilers.
Also if your not one of those that can't live without Social Media your good, but if your addicted to Social Media your pretty much screwed - germshep24

Don't talk to friends that you know are really excited about that movie, until you have watched it, if your going to school this is going to become really hard and all I can say is good luck - germshep24

Self explanatory. - Misfire

5 Avoid reading YouTube comments

Sometimes, even when you aren't watching a video related to the film whatsoever, there's still a chance of people commenting spoilers about the film on the video you're watching. - Misfire

This is a good idea because when I look at the comment section of Fortnite videos that I watch, people comment spoilers for endgame. Luckily for me, I never watch movies - sadical

Don't click on YT. - TriggerTrashKid

It is usually a good idea to avoid the YT comment sections anyway it can get really toxic, though comments on trailers can be very amusing - germshep24

6 Go to an early bird showing of the movie

This is just number one reworded - germshep24

7 Stay away from social media

There's always a chance that someone could post spoilers in a post or comment without any prior context, so it's best to stay off social media if you care about spoilers. - Atham

There would be plenty of spoilers in there. - Misfire

8 Listen to music with headphones

Especially when you're near a person who loves to give out spoilers. - Misfire

9 Make fake spoilers to avoid spoiling the real movie

How do you know a spoiler is fake if you don't know any spoilers. - TriggerTrashKid

10 Avoid watching YouTube videos related to the movie

The recommended section killed me a day before I saw endgame. - TriggerTrashKid

You can usually tell if a YT video will spoil a movie though, like for example if the video says blank movies ending explain you should know not to watch it or if it is a review from a random person that isn't a movie review channel there is usually going to be spoiler - germshep24

Some people complain that they got spoiled, even though it's a no-brainer that watching a video about a film you plan to watch would obviously give out spoilers. - Misfire

The Contenders

11 Don't read reviews of the movie

Even though it claims to be "spoiler-free", it still might include them. - Misfire

Reviews are actually really good at not spoiling movies though, like YT videos, I know all my favorite movie reviewers usually do two reviews of popular movies a spoiler free review and one with spoilers and they usually let you know when to stop watching if you don't want it spoiled, then IMDB usually has the this review as spoilers statement on them, and RT critic reviews don't usually have spoilers in the parts the show, but definitely avoid user reviewers on RT - germshep24

Especially on IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic - ElSherlock

12 Avoid TV commercials
13 Use browser extensions

Just type in words you want omitted and the blocker will remove articles and anything else about the film. - Misfire

14 Pretend like you have never heard of the movie

This one could backfire too though - germshep24
