The best thing about the Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers are that the crew behind them actually like the movies they’re parodying. Their latest endeavor, The Wolf of Wall Street, shows plenty of reverence for director Martin Scorsese‘s hilarious yet disturbing story of excess. It points out much of what’s great about the movie while also poking fun at its pop culture relevance. It highlights co-star Matthew McConaughey beating Leonardo DiCaprio for the Oscar, the debut of Jonah Hill‘s penis, Scorsese’s love of DiCaprio, and how some audiences totally missed the point of the movie. It’s a super funny video. Watch The Wolf of Wall Street Honest Trailer below. Read More »

The latest episode of Inside Amy Schumer includes an incredible parody of a faux Aaron Sorkin television series The Foodroom.
In the latest drama from Aaron Sorkin, the manager of a fast food restaurant defends his old-school ways against the increasing pressure to offer healthy options.
The Good Wife/Sports Night star Josh Charles plays J.J. MacAhoy, a patriotic fast-food restaurant manager. Amy Schumer plays a fast-food employee who has a realization that echos a common complaint about Sorkin’s The Newsroom. Watch Aaron Sorkin’s The Foodroom television parody embedded after the jump.

When it was first released, no one would have guessed Frozen would become the highest grossing animated film ever. Sure the reviews were solid and the music wonderful, but to some, it felt a tad off. The whole idea of Elsa “letting go” after being locked away like an animal gave the film a slightly off-putting feeling. At least to me.
If you don’t know what I mean, the team at How It Should Have Ended say it better than I ever could. They’ve created their latest video based on the hit film and it hilariously raises some big questions about the parents of Anna and Elsa. There might even be a cameo from a certain popular Marvel Comics series in there.
Below, watch How Frozen Should Have Ended. Read More »

Even before it opened, Noah was raising the ire of moviegoers who felt that Darren Aronofsky‘s take on the classic Bible story wasn’t “literal” enough. The controversy hasn’t died down now that the movie’s actually hit theaters, and last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a moment to fire back.
With his trademark wit, the host skewered those who complained that Noah wasn’t a documentary and didn’t have enough God in it. But best of all is when he takes on the Fox commentator who remembered the original as a story in which “the sun comes out and everybody lives happily ever after.” “Everybody?” Stewart responds with mock shock. “Nobody lives!” Watch him rip the haters a new one after the jump.

As Spidey prepares to swing back into theaters, two more trailers have dropped for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. One, the new international trailer, seems to contain a few new bits and pieces. But for my money, the more charming one is the one with no footage from the film, new or otherwise, at all. It’s the sweded trailer, and it’s short and sweet.
Watch both trailers, and check out a new poster, after the jump.

Later this year, Anna Kendrick will playing classic Disney princess Cinderella in the mash-up musical Into the Woods. But first, she got the chance to cycle through a few other Disney princesses during her Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend.
For her opening monologue, the Pitch Perfect star channeled Belle of Beauty and the Beast, flitting across the SNL stage as if it were an 18th century French village. Later on, she did her best take on a modernized The Little Mermaid as an Ariel who — much to Ursula’s horror — emulates contemporary pop singers like Britney Spears and Kesha. Hit the jump to watch both videos.

Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravity revolved entirely around the fact that it’s really, really hard for humans to survive in space. We require expensive equipment just to get there, and high-tech spacesuits to survive for more than a few minutes. Then, even when we’re wearing those, a single mishap can be enough to send us hurtling toward a painful death. Space is terrifying that way.
But space isn’t nearly as much of a challenge for, say, Superman. And Gravity might have been an extremely different movie if Christopher Reeve‘s Kryptonian hero had been around, as evidenced by this “alternate scene” cut from the start of the space-set thriller. Watch it after the jump.

ScreenJunkies has returned with a five-minute-long honest trailer for the popular HBO series adaptation Game of Thrones. The Game of Thrones honest trailer covers seasons 1-3, so be warned it contains spoilers from those episodes. They also created a “non-spoiler” version of the trailer, with blurred out imagery and such but if if you haven’t caught up on the show I wouldn’t trust it.
