Kong Skull Island Honest Trailer

Not too long ago, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts went on a lengthy rant about the sin against cinema that is Cinema Sins and their ongoing “Everything Wrong with…” web series that puts together painfully long videos that attempt to be clever while pointing out all the things that are “wrong” with big Hollywood movies. We were happy to feature the entire rant with the director’s permission because Cinema Sins is not the satire it claims to be and we’d all be better off without them.

Since then, fans have been waiting to see what Jordan Vogt-Roberts would do when Screen Junkies tackled Kong: Skull Island. But they might be surprised to hear that rather than taking offense to the fun that Honest Trailers brings to the table when mocking movies, the director actually gets in on the fun, takes over the Kong Skull Island Honest Trailer, and bashes his own movie to a pulp. Find out what the director himself says is wrong with Kong below. Read More »

godzilla vs kong

Godzilla vs. Kong will be the monster movie fight of the century. And director Adam Wingard promises that it will be different from last century’s fight between the two beasts.

The culmination of the Warner Bros. shared MonsterVerse that began with 2014’s Godzilla, as well as more than 50 years of the two classic movie monsters’ pop culture iconography, Godzilla vs. Kong is a modern-day take on a showdown that was already told in 1962’s Japanese kaiju film King Kong vs. Godzilla. But Wingard is eager to set the new Godzilla vs. Kong apart from its campy predecessor.

Godzilla 2 easter egg

Director Michael Dougherty is hard at work directing Godzilla 2, the next movie in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s MonsterVerse. But while this film will set up an eventual conflict between two cinematic titans in 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong, it will first turn to villains of the past and feature battles between Godzilla and iconic characters like Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah.

Thanks to Dougherty, we know Godzilla 2 will also feature a connection to the 1954 original film that started it all. But what does that link mean for this sequel?

Mindhunter Trailer

Director David Fincher has tackled crime thrillers with fantastic, acclaimed results in films like Panic Room, Zodiac and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Now he’s returning to the genre, but this time in serial form on Netflix.

Mindhunter is a new Netflix original series based on on Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, a non-fiction book by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker about agents of the FBI’s Investigative Support Unit which set out to get into the mindset of serial killers and psychopaths so that they might have an easier time identifying and catching them. A new trailer for the series has arrived, and it looks like exactly the kind of gripping crime drama we’d expect from a filmmaker like David Fincher. Read More »

Godzilla 2 Mothra

Godzilla 2 (formerly titled Godzilla: King of the Monsters) began production last month, and we’ve since seen a few set photos emerge that indicate overturned cars, things on fire, and the general amount of destruction one might expect from a 350-foot-tall giant lizard stomping around and battling monstrous enemies.

One of those enemies is the winged creature Mothra, and a new photo from the film’s marketing department gives us another look at Godzilla’s formidable foe.

Pacific Rim Uprising teaser

Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 kaiju vs. robots movie Pacific Rim had a reported $190 million budget, but only earned $101 million at the domestic box office. Thankfully for fans of the film, it ended up making $411 million worldwide because international audiences ate it up, and after some intense number-crunching by the studio, a sequel was eventually given the green light.

Now, four years later, the first teaser trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising has arrived, and it features a quick appearance by star John Boyega. Check it out below.

Kong Skull Island Alternate Opening

Kong: Skull Island had quite the legacy to live up to after being based on one of the most highly regarded classic films of all time, not to mention following up Peter Jackson’s 2005 remake which was at the very least a crowning technical achievement, even if you weren’t moved by the epic approach to the movie monster’s story. Thankfully, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts created something completely different that was able to stand on its own two feet, rather literally when you consider that this new Kong is a giant biped. And to make sure everyone understood that, he almost opened the movie by throwing some shade at the King that came before it.
