10 Terrible 2014 Films That Tricked Us With Awesome Posters
Their posters promised great things, but these movies just plain sucked.
2014 was hit and miss for movies. There were some great ones along the way, but only one blockbuster managed to hit $1 billion (Transformers: Age Of Extinction of all things), something which would play a big role in it being the lowest year for worldwide box office takings in quite some time. Regardless of outcome, 2014 saw the release of what many thought would be great movies, only to be sorely disappointed when they finally reached cinemas. Trailers obviously play a big role in building expectations, but so do posters. They are after all the first that most moviegoers see of an upcoming movie, whether it's online or in their local cinema. Some studios make more of an effort than others, and 2014 featured plenty of impressive looking posters which promised big things for certain films. Unfortunately, they tricked you! What looked like amazing movies based on their posters alone proved to be terrible. The explanation? Well, sometimes, the marketing team are just better at their jobs than the people behind the camera who are responsible for writing and directing the damn things. Come along and explore exactly what it was that made these posters so appealing and why the movies were so bad despite them.
