12 Films That Wasted Incredible Potential

All of these films had the chance to be so much more, but sadly, they all blew it...

Every so often the latest lineup of films poised to hit theatres can give us very little to get excited about.

Another unnecessary sequel to a once beloved franchise. A family film with an unbearable cast of child actors. An older actor known for starring in serious dramas now appearing in a cringe worthy comedy. And of course, the generic action film you’ll probably want to watch just to see how stupid things can get.

Sometimes you will feel like you have seen all of these films before and once again begin to question if originality is well and truly dead in the film industry.

But once every blue moon, a new film will come along and capture everyone's attention. Trailers show the potential in the film's premise and the hype begins to build as audiences hope the film can deliver an experience worthy of said hype.

But where some of these films stick the landing, others miss the mark completely, and despite their enjoyability, end up leaving audiences to wonder what could have been.

Here are some films that had such great potential, only to waste it on a mediocre and underwhelming experience.
