* ''Film/EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind'' had one particularly bad ad that made it look like some sort of madcap comedy starring JimCarrey (which is not entirely surprising).

Added DiffLines:

** The trailer for ''Fate and the Furious'' implies that after Dom's (apparent) FaceHeelTurn, he and Hobbs will have an epic rematch with Hobbs announcing that whether the old Dom is still in there or not, he will take him down, over a scene where an armored reflects bullets with a riot shield, as Hobbs fires a belt fed assault rifle. [[spoiler: Not only are these shots from completely different scenes, but the two never directly fight each other in the whole movie.]]
** Speaking of Dom turning on his team/family, the trailers seem to imply that whether he has really betrayed them for Cypher and why are going to be big mysteries in the film. [[spoiler: In actuality, it is made clear to the audience that Dom is being extorted into turning on them from pretty much the beginning, even if for what is not initially made clear.]]

* The trailer for ''{{Film/Moon}}'' makes it look like a psychological thriller, with the protagonist slowly losing his mind from three years of being isolated on the far side of the moon. The actual movie is about clones.

** Darth Vader only pops up twice in ''RogueOneAStarWarsStory'', both effectively being cameos where he has little impact on the plot. But ''every damn trailer'' after the initial teaser shows Vader at least once, implying a much larger part in the story than he actually had. He even made many of the posters and marketing materials.

* The TV spots for Creator/StevenSoderbergh's ''Film/{{Haywire}}'' depicted it as being like the director's ''OceansEleven''. It is much darker and more action/drama-oriented than that film. This may have been the reason for the film's big CriticalDissonance.

* A trailer for ''Film/TheDiaryOfAnneFrank'' shown on TCM spun it as an uplifting romance. The fact that they were hiding from the Nazis was given only a token nod at the beginning.

* In the NicolasCage movie ''Film/{{Knowing}}'', trailers presented viewers with a question: if you knew when and where a disaster was going to happen, could you stop it? It promised a film about a hero deciding what he was willing to sacrifice in order to save strangers from events only he knew were coming. Instead, it becomes a head against wall moment when the list of dates and locations (and body counts) turned out to be [[AbortedArc entirely pointless]] and the movie ends with [[HigherTechSpecies benevolent]] [[AssPull aliens]] loading up [[LastOfHisKind humans and animals]] into [[FlingALightIntoTheFuture space arks]] to save them from an unavoidable [[ApocalypseHow Class 6 apocalypse]].

** The very first trailer for ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' featured bright colors, a soundtrack by the Beastie Boys, and seemed to be much more action and comedy driven than either of the film's two predecessors, perhaps intending to ride the wave of [[''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' Guardians of the Galaxy's]] success. It was received so negatively that co-writer and star Simon Pegg had to come out and assure fans that the trailer was nothing like the completed film, which ended up being much more character driven than the trailer implied.

* ''Literature/HarrietTheSpy'' was advertised as a funny {{Nickelodeon}} romp. Then in the second act, it basically became a kid-friendly version of ''{{Literature/Carrie}}''.
