Black Hole Son
Everyone knows that you can't judge a film by its trailer these days. The smart pop culture whizzes who put together the coming attractions can make any film -- no matter the quality or genre -- look appealing to whichever audience they're aiming for with a couple of nice edits and a little good music.
Case in point, the damn entertaining amateur trailers that have made the rounds lately which feature scenes from classic movies, re-cut so that Jaws and The Shining are made to look like comedies or The Notebook is turned into a slasher movie.
Or this: A fan-made trailer from Disney's 1979 big-screen joke, The Black Hole, re-edited so that the movie actually looks like it might be decent.
