we have all seen trailers for movies.

a few of them stand out.

you watch them and think, "wow. that looks like it will be good. i should go see it."

then you go see it.

then it sucks.

sometimes, the trailer makes a better movie then the movie itself. i think this one is the king of disappointment: http://youtube.com/watch?v=F0On9Hf7Quc

post your favorite theatrical failures.

i thought superbad looked lame, but it was really funny. the cops made that movie!

+1 for Spiderman 3. not like the other 2 were so great, but 3 was a real let down.

Eh they were decent enough, I liked 'em. It's just that SM3 was so corny. The entire "emo" thing, the dancing and the fact that they kill of Venom.

+1 on 300.

I downloaded that Nine Inch Nails song almost straight after hearing it


300 was still damn good. i was just a little disappointed that the NIN song wasnt in the movie.

The whole "Robin Williams" part should have been a dead giveaway that it was going to suck.

Superman was definitely one, same with spiderman 3.. BUT

THE BIGGEST ONE OF ALL... The exorcism of emily rose. The trailers were scary as fuck, but the movie was just funny..


+1

The commercials were pretty bad. I mean, I would nearly hide when they came on, and then I saw the movie, and I was like, "Huh....pretty cool, I guess."

A few of my friends got kicked out of the theater for laughing obnoxiously loud when they saw it, though.

The exorcism of emily rose previews were misleading. the movie played out more like a court room drama. but i still think it was a little freaky and not a bad movie.

Jarhead


Yeah, the Jarhead trailer made it out to be a balls out proper lets-kill-the-towel-heads movie, but then I saw it, I liked it, but the only time that dude fired his rifle was in training and at the end.
