ITT: Trailers (or teasers) that were better than the movie that they were made for. Bonus: Explain why.
Well... do you have any examples to start your thread off with OP?
Fine. I'll start.

Independence Day (the official teaser in the super bowl, not the trailer).

Why? They cocktease the Pitt-Bruce Lee fight like it's a big thing but, in the movie, it's only for a few moments and doesn't amount to anything.

The Pitt-Bruce Lee fight was racism to keep the asian man down.

Why? I hope that AI one day can give to us the sequel promised by this trailer because the movie that they released sure didn't. Channing Tatum is wasted in a gloried cameo appearance, they capriciously kill off characters that they worked so hard to create in the first movie, they ignore the consequences of the first film... This movie was devastating given how good the first movie was & how good the trailer of the second film was.
I remember seeing a bit of a fad at one point for making fake trailers that intentionally gave the wrong impression for films, like making The Shining a heartwarming romantic comedy and so forth. Was some funny stuff.
This was years ago though so don't have any links on hand.
