10 Films You Only Ever Remember Seeing The Trailer For

9. Tolkien

In 2001, J.R.R Tolkien's popular Lord of The Rings franchise was first released in cinemas across the globe, adapted from his 1950s novels.

Late last year, a biopic movie was announced in a variety of trailers, showing a narrative that would follow the true story of the author, starring Nicholas Hoult as the key role alongside Lily Collins. The movie is still in cinemas today after the current events caused set backs of the initial release. Even without the delays, the movie received mixed reviews, gaining only a 51 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Within the trailer, audiences were promised action, romance and war hardships in the story. The film however fell flat on execution. Book fans were excited to see the beginnings of the author's imagination but the movie they went to see was of little colour and excitement, focusing on the bleakness of his past and the Hollywood relationships with his love interest and with his school friends. In fact, many did not even go and see the film in the first place, causing such a low box office revenue.
