10 Films You Only Ever Remember Seeing The Trailer For

Why did these films flop after being hyped up so much?

Warner Bros.

Many films of different genres dominate the box office every year: from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to horror to Disney animations. Audiences first get excited for these movies as they encounter the trailers - short, jumpy action sequences set to high intense beats of music that will hype up anyone to be first in line to buy a ticket.

However, sometimes when these trailers are released, this is as far as the movies go with audiences. Viewers may one day be scrolling through a streaming service years later and find that movie they remember from years ago, never recalling its initial cinema release.

Where did these films go and why did they not do as well as the popular trailers everyone remembered? Particularly in the 21st century, cinema goers and movie lovers are looking for unique storytelling, scarier moments and action packed narratives. But for many directors, the mark is missed entirely and their films are disregarded as being inconsequential no matter how many big names they attempt to waste their budget on.

Here is a list of just 10 of those movies you'll definitely remember seeing the trailer for, but never the film that came after.
