8. Suicide Squad (2016)

Let’s be honest, we’ve seen Suicide Squad, and it’s not a good film. In that respect, it’s fair to say that no amount of clever marketing would have helped it’s reputation. But for some reason, it made use of one of those movie trailers that just blatantly lied about the film itself, and that’s unforgivable.

The trailer features a number of the film’s most impressive scenes and shots, showcasing most of its characters in turn. However, the trailer features one character more than any other: Jared Leto’s Joker. It even gives Leto second billing after Will Smith, ahead of Margot Robbie. So the film must have a lot of Joker, right?

In reality, the Joker is briefly featured in a handful of scenes, and he’s barely a supporting character. The trailer actually shows basically every Joker moment in the entire movie, deliberately misleading audiences into believing that he’d be featured more heavily than he actually was. Looking back, it just feels like a cheap and borderline malicious lie by Suicide Squad‘s marketing team.
