My son is watching Interstellar at the moment, and while I enjoyed parts of it ("It's necessary"), I couldn't help but think how disappointed I was between the initial teaser trailer and the movie, itself. The trailer was fantastic, used part of Zimmer's score to perfection. My expectations for the movie were very high. The movie, though, had a number of issues with plot, pacing, etc. So Interstellar gets my vote for biggest trailer -> actual movie letdown. My disappointment leaving the theater was palpable.

For reference:

There are other notable drops for me, like Phantom Menace, but nothing as significant in recent memory as Interstellar.

What's yours?

Sorta Suicide Squad (the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer legit made it look like it could be a fun movie)

Man of Steel is probably #1 by far

I desperately wanted the fantasy stoner comedy to be a thing, but every single good joke was already in the trailer. Absolute let down.

This is another good one, I remember thinking that the movie was OK, but certainly not what I expected. Also I like Leo but Tom Hardy should've been the lead and I'll defend that position until the day I die.

I haven't heard that before, but I like the idea. Hardy and Dicaprio's roles should have been reversed.

A six minute epic of a trailer, from the two directors of my favorite movie of all time, coming off the visually breathtaking Speed Racer.

The movie was an absolute turd, true true.

Batman v Superman. Well, at least the second trailer. The big trailer right before release that showed Doomsday was extremely concerning. The one before that was good.

Man of the Year. This was the one where Robin Williams plays a famous comedian who ends up as President. I felt like the marketing there was just deceptive. It ended up being this weird super serious political thriller. Complete tonal mess.

Yeah, Suicide Squad. There is bad, there is underdelivered and then there is fundamentally broken.

Suicide Squad was the latter.

It was obvious they tried to go for a Deep Blue Sea effect, but the problem was Kick-Ass ain't no Ll Cool J. Not even a "that white dude in Deep Blue Sea, whatever his name was" type of guy.

I wanted to see Cranston dealing with this monster or helping out with it. Instead nope, get his boring ass kid and family.

Blah, why couldn't THEY die in the reactor with the mom.

This was my first thought. So amazing that it basically showed every cool thing in the film, and what we got otherwise was trash.
I only watched that hype as fuck first teaser for Prometheus, and man was I excited and then let down. A close 2nd.

Today I learned that I apparently really like disappointing movies. Sometimes I feel like I live in a different world from the rest of NeoGAF.

The one I really get behind in this thread is Godzilla 2014. Had huge hopes for it, especially after loving Pacific Rim, and it just let me down big time. I still love parts of it, but overall the movie was just not what I was expecting (in a bad way).
