Rip-off Theatre, starring you!

Inspired by (and of course I mean totally ripping off) rollick, who posted this terrific entry -- inspired by a spoiler-laden t-shirt she bought at WizardWorld* -- I naturally began thinking of spoiler shirts I'd like to see/make/wear/buy/sell.

But we all know I'm not funny, so I leave it to you: post your own spoiler suggestions for a theoretical line of t-shirts! Bonus points for:

- Spoiling an entire series of films at one go (NORMAN DID IT, NORMAN DIDN'T DO IT, NORMAN DID IT AGAIN, MAYBE NORMAN DID IT AND MAYBE HE DIDN'T!)
- Art films, or films with ambiguous or strange endings (BILL MURRAY SAYS SOMETHING TO SCARLETT JOHANNSON BUT WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS!)
- Films everyone already knows the ending to (THE NORTH WINS THE CIVIL WAR!)
- Spoilers that are completely wrong ('ROSEBUD' IS THE NAME OF KANE'S WET NURSE)
- Meta-spoilers (THE MOVIE COMPLETELY KILLS MICHAEL CIMINO'S CAREER!)
- Spoilers for movies that don't have twist endings (JESUS IS CAPTURED BY THE ROMANS AND HUNG TO DIE ON THE CROSS!)
- Spoilers for incredibly obscure movies hardly anyone has ever seen (STAN BRAKHAGE CLIMBS THE MOUNTAIN WITH HIS DOG!)
- Spoiling things other than the ending of the film (CHER HAS A REALLY ANNOYING ITALIAN ACCENT!)
- Spoiling completely meaningless details (IN THE FIRST SCENE OF THE SECOND ACT, BRAD PITT'S SHIRT IS A GRAY OXFORD TWILL BY OLEG CASSINI!)
- Spoilers where nobody gets the reference (KANE LETS THE BIKERS KILL HIM TO REDEEM CUTSHAW'S BELIEF IN GRACE!)

Now GO!
