Not a Middle Earth film but... [In reply to] Can't Post

Jackson's King Kong trailer had tons of unfinished CGI shots in the debut trailer. The Bronto stampede (which honestly didn't look to great in the final product anyway) had some very spotty animation, and WETA used a scrapped design of Kong for the final shot (since the actual design had not yet been finalized).

Also, while the CGI shots in the ROTK trailer were technically finished, there are several that were heavily altered in the final film. The mumakil in the trailers didn't have their warpaint, the shots of the Battle of Pellenor fields wasn't color graded (it looked way to dark and overcast in the first trail and more autumnal and red in the final cut) and I'm pretty sure Shelob moved/looked differently.

Frankly, this kind of stuff happens in a lot of CGI heavy films these days. Heck, the first teasers for The Avengers showed shots of explosions that would only later have the Chitauri composited into them.
