10 Horrible Movies That Tricked Us With Deceitful AD Campaigns

Recently a Redditor asked, “What movies have had the most misleading ad campaigns in the worst way?”

They continued, ” I just finished watching The Many Saints of Newark. Everything I heard about it before it came out was that it was the origin story of Tony Soprano.”

Finally, they concluded, “The description on HBO Max says, ‘The story of young Tony Soprano and his mentor, Dickie Moltisanti.' But, unfortunately, Tony Soprano was barely in it, the movie sucked, and it had nothing to do with how it was advertised.”

"As a fan of Star Trek: TNG, I thought it would be the story of Data starring Robin Williams and the Pepsi Girl. But, on the contrary, it's pretty depressing. The only humor is the three or four jokes at the film's beginning that are all in the trailer.

“If you are a victim of domestic violence, people won't take it seriously. People don't think that women can be vicious,” said one commenter. Sadly, several others had stories like, “I went through this.”

Reddit user flying-potato94 nominated “Jennifer's Body. They used gross sexist marketing to entice teen boys/men, who then were angry it wasn't the type of trash they expected when it was a movie made for and about girls and young women.”
