* The trailers for ''Film/YourHighness'' make James Franco and Creator/NataliePortman out to be equal billing with star/co-writer Danny [=McBride=]. In actuality, most of Franco's screen time takes place in the middle of the film and Portman doesn't show up for the first 45 minutes. Fourth-billed Creator/ZooeyDeschanel is nothing more than an extended cameo (which somehow became an AvertedTrope as she was barely in the trailers).

Added DiffLines:

* The trailers for the live action adaptation of ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' portray the film as a high budget historical sci-fi flick set in Edo period Japan, complete with serious narration and dramatic acting. Until the trailer ends and the words "It's a comedy" appear on screen overlaid on decidedly undramatic scenes of chasing beetles and picking noses.

* ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRockyAndBullwinkle'' had trailers where Bullwinkle said the lines: "I'm King of the world!" and "What's uuuuup?" It's likely these lines were going to be used in the film but got removed so the film wouldn't seem too dated. In the actual scenes, he doesn't say anything, and he says "What's the difference?" in a bit of BitingTheHandHumor.

* The trailer for ''Film/TheLastHouseOnDeadEndStreet'' may be made of pure NightmareFuel, but it is neither the TheExorcist clone it appears to be or even connected to ''Film/TheLastHouseOnTheLeft'' at all.

* One woman felt that this trope warranted [[http://www.postchronicle.com/news/strange/article_212394856.shtml a lawsuit]] when she felt misled by the trailer for ''Film/{{Drive}}'' - which, in her opinion, had little to do with driving cars [[TheFastAndTheFurious really fast]] and more to do with anti-Semitism.

** Also the trailers made the movie look pretty dark - opening with Loki demanding to know why Fury depends on such "lost creatures" and emphasizing the conflict between the heroes. While these elements are in the film, [[LighterAndSofter the movie was buckets of fun and had a pretty light tone]], the heroes come together when they need to without much fuss, and it's [[{{Reconstruction}} reconstruction of many superhero tropes was one of it's biggest strengths.]]

* The trailer for ''Film/SavingMrBanks'' accurately promises a movie about WaltDisney making ''MaryPoppins'' in the early 1960s. However, it gives undue attention to Disney and ''Poppins'' creator Pamela Travers's visit to Disneyland, which is a very brief scene in the movie. It also makes ''Saving Mr. Banks'' look like it's exclusively a comedy, barely focusing on Travers's childhood and not bringing up any of the movie's traumatic moments.

* The teaser for the 2016 Finnish horror movie ''Film/LakeBodom'''s as well as its official synopsis, heavily implied that the movie would be about [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Bodom_murders the 1960 murders]] that took place at Lake Bodom in Finland. The movie is actually set in 2016, and besides the location any link to the murder case is left up to interpretation.
