Poll: 25 Trailers Better Than the Movie

The expectations coming into these films were high based on their trailers alone, which were full of promise and excitement. After experiencing the movie, the general consensus was that they did not deliver on that same promise, with many people finding themselves shrugging and saying "meh" come the film's end.

[These films must have a RT score of 59% or less and an IMDb rating of less than 7.5., which means films like Prometheus (2012) and Superman Returns (2006) don't make the cut.]

Which of these films that were hyped up early on for their stellar trailers disappointed you the most?
