- I thought the previews looked awful and it reminded me of a wannabe 5th Element knockoff with all the focus on River Tam kicking ass. Trumpeting that it was from the creator of Buffy also was a huge turn off as I at that time I had never watched the show since I assumed it was for tween girls.
Hell, the only reason I even saw it in theaters was b/c my girlfriend thought I wanted to see The Corpse Bride with me thinking the same about her. Once we got to the theater and realized that neither of us wanted to see that we asked the kid at the counter what he liked the most that was playing. Glad we did.
John Carter - another movie with a preview that completely turned me off. After seeing it on HBO I can't understand how they thought the advertising campaign they rolled with was worth a shite.
