This coming weekend, the 89th Academy Awards will be held, and the acclaimed La La Land is expected to take home a bunch of Oscars just like it has the rest of the awards season. As more and more have seen the throwback musical romance, the film has become easier to lampoon for audiences who previously didn’t have a chance to see it. So it should come as no surprise that this week there have been plenty of parody videos capitalizing on the film’s buzz and popularity heading into the Academy Awards.
After the jump, you’ll find a trusty La La Land 8-Bit Cinema, a Muppet mash-up that replaces Ryan Gosling with Kermit the Frog, and a recut of the film’s trailer to make it look like a thriller from David Lynch. Read More »
Even though there are plenty of droids in the Star Wars universe who can talk, apparently it’s more efficient for astromech models like R2-D2 to speak by way of a series of bleeps and bloops. Thankfully, whenever C-3PO gets pissy with his counterpart, he reacts in such a way that we know what the feisty little droid says. Even human characters can understand his unique droid language. And now we, the audience, can too.
Auralnauts, the creators behind the hilarious video of Kylo Ren reacting to the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer, have put together a reel of every single scene where R2-D2 speaks in Star Wars: A New Hope and dubbed over his lines with dialogue. It adds a whole new perspective to the droids personality and his interaction with various characters.

Seth Meyers may not be an Academy Awards contender this year, but he knows exactly what it takes to become one. The Late Night host has unveiled the (parody) trailer for his new (non-existent) movie, simply called Oscar Bait and billed as “the most blatant attempt to win an Oscar since The King’s Speech.” Honestly, it’s refreshing to see a movie be so willing to just admit what it is.
As the title suggests, it’s “a film that’s not afraid to pander to your emotions.” Mostly by hitting on all the stereotypical hallmarks of the Academy’s favorite films, like racial tension, latent homosexuality, “a man staring at trains,” a rare disease, a Carol reference, and lots of crying. So much crying. Like full-on, snot-nosed ugly-crying. Watch the Seth Meyers Oscar bait video below. Read More »
The Oscars will be handed out this coming Sunday to honor some of the best achievements in film from the year 2016. Of course, the Oscars aren’t necessarily always an indication of the absolute best movies from the preceding year, if only because there’s a lot of politics and money involved, making it impossible for some deserving films to get nominated. And to make sure we don’t forget that the crop of Best Picture nominees this year are not safe from criticism, Honest Trailers has decided to poke fun at every single one of them.

Daisy Ridley may have been new to movie stardom circa Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but by now she’s an old pro at dodging questions. Watch as shrugs that she doesn’t think Rey’s parentage is really “so important,” or coolly deflects further inquiries with “curiosity is a wonderful thing.” Unfortunately for her, though, fans and journalists aren’t the only ones she has to watch out for.
For the past several weeks, Josh Gad — Ridley’s co-star in the Murder on the Orient Express remake — has been trying his damnedest to get some Star Wars: The Last Jedi answers from her, even enlisting the help of Judi Dench. So far, Ridley’s resisted. But can she continue to stand firm against all of Gad’s famous friends? Find out below. Read More »
Since Zootopia has been on home video for awhile, I hope you’ve taken the time to pause the movie during the scene where Duke Weaselton is selling bootleg copies of movies we all know and love, but with an animal twist that only Zootopia can offer. You’ll find titles like Wreck-It Rhino, Meowana and Pig Hero 6 in the pile of bootleg movies, showing us what the animal versions of those movies would be like in the thriving metropolis of anthropomorphic creatures.
Now Zootopia directors Rich Moore and Byron Howard, as well as screenwriter Jared Bush, have created parody posters for some of the Oscar nominees who will be vying for a golden man when the awards are passed on this Sunday, February 26. They include pun-tastic parodies of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, La La Land, Hell or High Water and more.

The saddest man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t Loki with his daddy issues or Bruce Banner with his self-loathing or even Bucky Barnes with his unreliable brain and unfortunately highly effective assassin training. No, if you ask me, it’s Darryl, the poor ordinary schmoe who somehow got stuck rooming with Thor while the rest of the Avengers were off having their Civil War.
As we saw in the first mockumentary short unveiled at Comic-Con, Thor might be a great superhero but he is a terrible roommate. Things don’t look much better for sad Darryl in Team Thor: Part 2, where it’s revealed Thor is not so much into the “paying rent in actual money” part of living with someone. Watch the new Thor Darryl short below. Read More »
Tom Cruise is known to run as fast as he can at some point in almost every single movie that he stars in. However, one clever video editor wanted to have a little more fun with Tom Cruise by having him fall through a bunch of movies that he doesn’t star in.
Taking footage from Cameron Crowe’s 2001 film Vanilla Sky and splicing it with clips from Men in Black III, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Avengers and more, the video sees Tom Cruise free falling quite quickly. If you think this video is going to end with Tom Cruise safely suspended above the floor like in the first Mission: Impossible, think again.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Tomorrow, Marvel’s Doctor Strange will be available to download on Digital HD if you can’t wait for the Blu-ray and DVD to hit shelves in a couple weeks. The home video release will be chock full of bonus features, and one of the most entertaining bits on from all the extras is always the gag reel. There’s just something hilarious about seeing Earth’s mightiest heroes flub their lines, take a misstep, drop their weapons or dance like total goofballs. And the Doctor Strange gag reel is no exception, especially when it comes to Benedict Cumberbatch showing off some dance moves in the Sanctum Sanctorum.

This weekend brings The LEGO Batman Movie to theaters, and you can finally see if it’s worth all the hype that’s been tossed around. Personally, I found the movie to be a blast, but I will concede that it starts to lose steam towards the end, and it just might be a little too self-aware for its own good. Still, it’s a great time for children and adults alike.
If you’re not seeing The LEGO Batman Movie in theaters immediately, that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with the dulcet tones of Will Arnett‘s voice bringing the building block version of The Dark Knight to life. The folks at BBC Radio 1 had some fun in the studio with the Arrested Development star by having him call a toy store as LEGO Batman. But that’s not all, because each sentence he said had to begin with the next letter of the alphabet, starting with “A” and going all the way through “Z” at the end. Can he pull it off?
