Name A Movie Trailer That Was Better Than The Entire Movie Itself

Real talk, some people are just better at foreplay.

Posted on

The scene is set: You're sitting in the movie theater, the lights go down and on come the *trailers*.

MJJ Productions

Real talk, one of the best parts of going to the movies in the first place ARE the trailers.

Movie trailers allow everyone to become a critic within seconds, as you whisper to the friends next to you whether or not you'll be going to see the film the second the trailer ends.

Disney

Nowadays people are so excited to see trailers sometimes they'll be a teaser trailer FOR the trailer.

Voltage Pictures

But, every once in a while, a trailer will totally hook you, getting your butt into that seat to see the full film.

Only for the film itself to completely miss your expectations.

So, in your opinion, what's a movie that had a better trailer than a final product?

20th Century Fox

Did an action film, like Sucker Punch, take a sucker punch to your heart (and wallet) after the kick-ass trailer proved to be most of the cool shit?

Warner Bros.

Or perhaps, like Where The Wild Things Are, the film itself was perfectly fine, but its trailer just far surpassed it?

Legendary Pictures

Or, like with the Atonement trailer, were you expecting a forbidden love story and not to have your fucking heart ripped out?

Exactly 10 years later, still not over it.
