The "Oh yeah" is taken from another, totally banal part of the film, before the kid's even introduced (and no, the other scene doesn't involve Costner shooting a different kid). This is just the result of trailer editors getting a little too creative and making up "badass" moments by combining different scenes -- a bad habit that hasn't really gone away. More recently, the Breaking Bad Season 4 trailer made it look like Walter White was about to do something extremely off-character and kill someone in a way that wasn't insanely convoluted.
SPOILERS: This guy probably wishes that's really how he went.
It's easy to miss it because it's so quick, but the shot of Walt aiming the gun is from another scene in his house, when he's having a little Taxi Driver self-hype moment. The gun in question is never even shot for the whole duration of the show.
And finally, we can't have an article about terrible trailers and mention Batman v. Superman only once. In the movie, Wonder Woman saves Batman from being laser-blasted by Michael Shannon's sentient nutsack:
OK, we were only half paying attention to the plot of this thing.
It's a genuinely cool moment, not to mention a perfect visual representation of Wonder Woman's effect on the DC Extended Universe. But it wasn't cool enough for the trailer. So they threw an unrelated nuclear blast into the middle of the sequence ...
... which makes Batman magic, we're pretty sure. If he survived being in the middle of that, he didn't really need Wonder Woman's help. Plus, he's got teleporting powers:
"... The fuck did you get here?"
Then again, we can't say an awful, disjointed trailer full of baffling decisions isn't representative of this movie. Dear lord, they were trying to warn us.
