Movie trailers can be quite deceiving. While we all enjoy a teaser before a film is released, we don’t appreciate when they purposely mislead us. With experience, we have noticed that trailers have the potential to make people believe that a movie, which sometimes isn’t worth anyone’s time, is actually worth watching. This feels a bit like false advertising. Directors obviously know when they don’t have a great movie, so they put a great trailer together to trick people into going to see the film. Here are nine trailers that were so obviously better than the movie. Just a word of advice – none of these films are actually worth seeing!
The trailer for Transcendence presents a pretty thought-provoking movie with a killer cast and excellent cinematography. Sadly, the movie itself just doesn’t deliver. The storytelling is awful and Johnny Depp offers a rather stiff performance. Even if you are only after eye-catching visuals, we don’t recommend that you waste two hours on this film – just watch the trailer.
