Three things are certain in life. Death, taxes, and Internet trailer parodies. The instant a big film trailer hits the web, you know hundreds of people start working on different parodies, memes, and whatever else they can come up with. In the past week, two of the year’s biggest trailers came online: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course, so too came the parodies.
For Batman v Superman, Screen Junkies did an Honest Trailer version of the trailer, and someone else re-edited the footage with shots of Christopher Reeve and Adam West to give it a retro feel. Check out the Batman v Superman trailer parodies below. Read More »

The last time I saw the 2003 Daredevil movie was 2003. I didn’t like it then and I’m pretty sure I don’t like it now. To be honest, I don’t remember much about it. Its memory faded faster than I could walk out of the theater. That’s what bad movies do. But Daredevil has since, somehow, never left the public consciousness. In the past decade, it’s become the punchline of every superhero movie joke there is. Plus, it continues to have all these odd connections to today’s popular culture. (Affleck playing another superhero, Affleck marries Garner, etc.)
One of the biggest modern connections is the fact Marvel finally got the character back and turned it into a Netflix series which will be released this weekend. That makes it the perfect time for Screen Junkies to remind us why the Daredevil movie is so bad with an Honest Trailer. Check it out below. Read More »

Game of Thrones‘ Jon Snow has plenty of good qualities. He’s clever and strong, loyal and courageous to a fault. And even his less pleasant traits make sense in context. You’d be a wet blanket, too, if all of your loved ones were dead and ice zombies were coming for everyone else.
All in all, his intense personality makes him pretty well suited for his current job as a brother of the Night’s Watch. But as Seth Meyers learns to his chagrin in this hilarious clip from Late Night, it also makes Jon a pretty terrible dinner party guest. Watch the Jon Snow dinner party sketch after the jump.

In an adorable skit, Ned and “Grover Bluejoy” preside over the “Game of Chairs” to decide on the kingdom’s next king or queen. It doesn’t go quite as planned — but then again, neither did the plans for succession on the real Game of Thrones. Watch the Game of Thrones Sesame Street parody after the jump. Read More »
