    This movie came up in conversation, and it's one of my favorites. So I pull up the trailer, and it's nothing like the actual movie..in pacing/tone/anything. What other movies have misleading trailers like this?

    Primeval got notorious reviews from pissed people because the trailer doesn't let you know the serial killer is a crocodile.

    I read about the "killer" being a crocodile and still wanted to see it. If you watched one of the trailers closely, you could see a glimpse of the crocodile.

    IRON MAN 3 is NOTORIOUS for false advertising. That badass trailer only to get a half assed Mandarin in a bullshit plot twist.

    Scary Movie 3. All you saw were the funny bits in the trailer.
    Executive Decision. It sounds like a Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal flick only to have Steven Seagal die early.

    Made you think it was gonna be nonstop nazi-zombie action horror, in reality like 75% of the movie took place in an attic.

    Executive Decision. “Starring” Steven Seagal.

    I was fine with it. It made it surprising when he died and really underscored that Kurt was on his own.

    Jennifer's Body was poorly marketed. It was supposed to be a teen film for girls, instead they mislead the public to believe it was just a film of Megan Fox looking hot and showing tits maybe, idk, and geared it towards guys.

    Tho she did look hot! But that wasn't the point of the film.

    YES! I distinctly remember going to see this with some friends and being very confused that it was just a creature feature. Which I don’t mind, just not what I was expecting

    I remember being pretty sure it was about a crocodile and I never actually watched the movie.

    I would say “The Village” trailers misrepresented that film. I was expecting a monster movie.

    I have to say, this threw me off a little when I actually went to see the movie.

    I remember Dusk Till Dawn completely leaving out the whole vampire part of that movie in the trailers.

    I looked into it before watching when it came out so I knew it was a croc, but a lot of people didn't.

    This looked like it was going to be an epic conclusion to cap off an amazing trilogy. Instead we got a bungled mess of a movie.

    Drive with Ryan Gosling. thought it was gonna be an action movie but it really was a melodrama (and not a bad melodrama actually; just not what i was expecting or looking for).

    That was on purpose for the suprise factor.

    you knew it was a Tarantino film so anything can happen anyway..
