I never said it would diminish the first viewing experience and I didn't say you wouldn't care for a certain scene because you've seen it on the trailer. But it would lower down the effect it would had on you.
Just think of it. For example imagine you are a huge fan of Nolan and Hardy but you don't know Hardy is playing the villain in TDKR, and when you watch the film for the first time how much realizing that could impress you compared to a situation that you already know that.
