Basically the shot opens on a beautiful beach, sunny skies, lovely weather, then we pan or track to reveal it's just a poster.......

 

Anybody have links to this? I can't remember where I saw it, but I'm happy for references other than a beach too.

That's a gag which has definitely been done before, multiple times. Maybe in a Pixar movie?

The beginning of Tamahori's, Once Were Warriors, opens like the way you described. You can watch it here.

Its not a beach but its a beautiful New Zealand landscape.

Didn't Jurassic Park II have a scene like that? It worked well.

I think there's something like this in Twin Peaks (season 1). An orange sunset at a beach and then the camera tracks to one side to reveal thats not where you are.
