** A sneak preview of ''WesternAnimation/RockADoodle'' appeared at the beginning of the 1990 VHS of ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'', promising a release for Thanksgiving from MGM but it ended up being released by The Samuel Goldwyn Company due to production issues and content changes. It was rescheduled for Thanksgiving 1991, but moved again to April 1992 to avoid competition with ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' and ''[[AnAmericanTail An American Tail: Fievel Goes West]]'' (the film was released in Europe in Summer 1991 though).
** Later, the 1992 VHS of ''Rock-a-Doodle'' had a sneak preview of ''{{WesternAnimation/Thumbelina}}'', which said it was to be released by MGM, but due to to production difficulties, it was released by Warner Bros. in March 1994.

* Endemic in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'''s TroubledProduction. Between leaks that necessitated major changes, tweaks from playtesting results, and the game just plain not being ready, Valve was forced to announce new release dates several times -- including, infamously, once delaying the game ''on its release date''. This led to the [[https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Valve_Time "Valve Time"]] [[Memes/{{Valve}} meme]]. Not coincidentally, [[RealSoonNow Valve no longer makes a habit of giving release dates]] until just before release.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAndMisterFreezeSubZero'' had a teaser on the VHS release of ''SpaceJam'' and a trailer on each video released in the 2nd wave of the ''Adventures of Batman & Robin'' videocassettes, stating that it was being released in the summer of 1997. It would be released in the Spring of 1998. This was because of the negative feedback of ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', since they both featured Mr. Freeze and the studio was afraid the connection would hurt sales of the animated film.

* Trailers for ''She's Having a Baby'' were released in January 1987 with VHS copies of ''FerrisBuellersDayOff'' but the film wasn't released until February 1988 due to director Creator/JohnHughes having production problems with ''Film/PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles''.

* The teaser trailer for ''[[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Aladdin and the King of Thieves]]'' appeared on the 1995 VHS of ''AngelsInTheOutfield'' and said it was to be released in Fall 1995, but it didn't come out until August 1996. (The delay came about due to Disney getting RobinWilliams back as the voice of the Genie -- midway through production.)

Although the film was released in May 1992, it was held up by production woes that lasted through the winter of 1991, and the hinted plot in the trailer (xenomorphs take over Earth) was completely different to the final product.
