Coming up with the perfect title for a movie is no easy task. You must describe your story, without giving away too much... all while simultaneously teasing your audience.
So, why on Earth would these films put the ending of their movie in the title?!
Click through and check out the 9 movie titles that give away the ending... right there with the words on the poster!
1. Lone Survivor
All that suspense in this Mark Wahlberg movie with the Navy SEALs heading behind enemy lines. I wonder who will survive? Wait... I guess we know.
2. The Return of the King
Almost nine hours and three movies and the title of the third in the Lord of the Rings series could have told you how this puppy was going to end.
3. The Shawshank Redemption
I wonder if our hero will see freedom after serving all that time as an innocent man found guilty of murdering his wife? I guess with "Redemption" in the title, we're thinking that'll happen.
4. The Empire Strikes Back
So Luke blows up the Death Star in Star Wars and we think this battle is over. But given the title of the sequel, we're guessing it doesn't end so well for our heroes.
5. Free Willy
Ahhh, how cute... a true story about a boy trying to save an in-captivity whale. Wonder if he'll do it. Given the poster and the title, that's a safe bet.
6. Kill Bill
It may take two movies, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2, but it's a sure thing that Uma Thurman is going to Kill Bill, thanks to the title.
7. Finding Nemo
Nemo goes missing. His father must find him. Wonder if he'll succeed? Well, judging by the moniker of the Pixar/Disney movie, he succeeded in Finding Nemo.
8. Much Ado About Nothing
This title is not Joss Whedon's fault. His film is fantastic, but Shakespeare could have done better with his moniker. After all that hub-bub... this is Much Ado About Nothing! Really?!
