Bright Honest Trailer

Netflix’s first blockbuster took the gritty cop drama of movies like Training Day and End of Watch and mixed them with the magic and fantasy of Hellboy and Lord of the Rings. If that premise sounds like it would make for an awesome movie, you’d be right. But unfortunately we don’t live in the universe where that movie exists. Instead we got David Ayer‘s misfire Bright.

Bright follows the unlikely partnership of Will Smith, a human police officer, paired with Joel Edgerton, an orc police officer. Instead of the tension that exists between various races on the streets, we get the tension that exists between different species. And for some reason, as Honest Trailers points out, the world the story exists in isn’t much different from today’s world despite having magic be part of it for over 200 years. In fact, it’s almost exactly the same, and that’s just stupid. Read More »

Drunk History Mr Rogers

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the premiere of the children’s television program Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. The PBS program debuted in February of 1968 and would run for roughly 30 years, educating several generations of children. But at one time, the legacy of his program was threatened by budget cuts proposed by President Richard Nixon.

Drunk History recently had an episode where comedian Solomon Georgio tells host Derek Waters the abridged inebriated story of how Fred Rogers came to be a children’s television host and ended up sitting in front of congress for one final plea to allow public television to keep their funding so they can continue to teach children important values and life lessons. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, you can watch the full segment below. Read More »

Thor Ragnarok Honest Trailer

Yesterday brought Thor: Ragnarok home on Blu-ray and DVD, which means we can watch the funniest Marvel Studios movie to date over and over again. Adding to the laughs is the Honest Trailer that doesn’t really make fun of the movie so much as make some amusing observations about the characters and give Marvel some flack for not letting Edgar Wright do his thing with Ant-Man when they had the chance.

The Lonely Island Oscars Song

As expected, the 90th Academy Awards went long last night, even with Jimmy Kimmel offering a sweet jetski to the Oscar winner who gave the shortest acceptance speech. But the ceremony was almost a little bit longer thanks to The Lonely Island, and it would have been worth the extra time.

The Lonely Island, the Saturday Night Live hip-hop trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer, and Jorma Taccone, was asked to write a song for this year’s Oscars ceremony. However, the song that they came up with about the films that weren’t nominated for Oscars ended up being “financially and logistically impossible” to shoot for the ceremony.

Thankfully, we can imagine what it might have been like thanks to the storyboard video and demo they recorded. So check out this abandoned The Lonely Island Oscars song featuring Thor, Wonder Woman, The Snowman, Pennywise the Dancing Clown, and more. Read More »

Oscars 2018 Honest Trailer

This weekend brings the 90th Academy Awards to ABC to honor achievements in filmmaking from the previous year. The awards ceremony will broadcast live on Sunday, March 4 at 8pm ET/5pm PT with Hollywood’s finest glad-handing each other and kissing all the asses. Therefore it only makes sense that the Best Picture nominees get knocked down a few pegs beforehand.

The Oscars 2018 Honest Trailer lines up all nine of the movies up for this year’s top prize in film and fires off some quick jabs at them. It’s not quite as satisfying as the usual Honest Trailer (surely those will come later as they get released on home video), but it’s a good place to start for the time being. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Justice League Honest Trailer

Justice League didn’t exactly make a big splash when it debuted last fall. In fact, Black Panther made more at the domestic box office in its first four days of release than the entire theatrical run of DC’s first big screen assembly of their superheroes. What should have been an exciting moment for DC Comics fans kind of fizzled out, but that’s not stopping the folks at Screen Junkies from holding anything back when it comes to taking jabs at its weirdly computer generated face in the Justice League Honest Trailer.

Blade Trilogy Honest Trailer

Black Panther has been getting all sorts of praise as the film hits theaters everywhere with sneak preview screenings tonight. But let us not forget the first Marvel franchise that not only featured a black superhero in the lead, but also boasted an R-rating across three films and introduced us to a simultaneously badass and smart ass Ryan Reynolds long before Deadpool was a possibility.

The Blade trilogy probably has more lows than highs, but it still deserves credit for paving the way for Black Panther, even if the Marvel Cinematic Universe preceding it has done most of the heavy lifting in recent years. Honest Trailers gives credit where credit is due while also mocking the worse parts of the series, including some of the lamest vampires we’ve ever seen.

HISHE - How Star Wars The Last Jedi Should Have Ended

There were plenty of fans who were disappointed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, many of them with a myriad of criticisms and questions that went unanswered.

Showgirls Honest Trailer

This weekend brings Fifty Shades Freed to theaters, ending the poorly arousing erotic trilogy of films that began as Twilight fan fiction years ago. But over 20 years ago, there was another movie that was all the rage in Hollywood that failed to turn anyone on, and it was called Showgirls.

Largely regarded as one of the worst movies ever made, Showgirls is one of those movies that helped a lot of teens of the late 1990s cross over into puberty when it played on pay cable. You Dad might have even had it on video tape. Now Honest Trailers is taking some cheap shots at the movie that is so over the top, not even Sylvester Stallone can handle it. Read More »
