Hong Sangsoo's trailer for THE DAY HE ARRIVES in in black and white?

Having just watched Hong Sangsoo's feature film THE DAY HE ARRIVES (2011) within the context of The Cinema Guild release dvd format, I found it a bit intriguing that the trailer for this quixotic drama is shown in color, and running backwards so as to introduce the characters of his latest drama. The film itself is presented in black and white (not color) to good effect I must say. I'm assuming he originally filmed it in color and reverted it to black & white for thematic reasons.
Can anyone else think of any other foreign or domestic film that promoted itself in one format/color and released in a different color scheme? (Even if you don't plan on seeing this latest incarnation from Hong Sangsoo, check out the trailer because it is funny as well.)

Re: Hong Sangsoo's trailer for THE DAY HE ARRIVES in in black and white

The Canyons (2013) had a B&W trailer released for it online, although most of the promotional material, including other trailers, were in color:

Nebraska and The Man Who Wasn't There were both shot in color but released in B&W. The trailers for those, at least in the US, were in B&W:

I think releasing a color trailer of a B&W film in the US might constitute "false advertising," so it's unlikely to happen.

I can't be sure, but I think some of the trailers for Kill Bill Vol 1 may have had some shots of the B&W sequence in the final fight in color, but with the blood on The Bride's clothes changed from red to black.
