While John Wick is full of brutal gun shots to pretty much every part of the body, the one that that really made audiences sad was that the bad guys killed the title assassin’s adorable dog. That was just one of the many reasons that John Wick was thinkin’ he’s back. But what if instead of John Wick’s dog getting killed, it was John Wick himself who was killed, leaving his loyal canine to seek revenge for his master’s death.

This week brings one of the most anticipated sequels of the year in the form of John Wick: Chapter 2. The sequel follows the surprise hit of 2014 that blew people away with a barrage of bullets and carefully crafted kick-ass action, courtesy of Keanu Reeves as the title character. That means there’s no better time for Honest Trailers to target the original John Wick, even though there’s much more to compliment than make fun of in the end.

Last month, Screen Junkies decided to give their fans the power of voting for which Honest Trailers hit the web all through January. We’re well into February now, but we wanted to make sure that we highlighted the movie that fans wanted to see get skewered the most, and you might be surprised as to what came out on top.
Shrek was the movie that fans wanted Screen Junkies to give the Honest Trailers treatment to the most, and they definitely come through with flying colors by delivering an amusing parody of Smash Mouth’s hit song “All Star” from the film’s soundtrack. It’s not quite as cool as Michael Bolton showing up in the Honest Trailer for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but it’ll do for now.

In the years since Westworld has been operational, so many narratives have come and gone. One of the more popular storylines from years past was that of City Slickers, inspired by the story of a group of friends who just want to relax on the frontier, rope some cattle, and sleep under the stars for a night away from the stress of the city.
Though the City Slickers narrative has been retired for some time, hosts Mitch (Billy Crystal) and Phil (Daniel Stern) have been left to their own devices, annoying the hell out of each other in the desert. But more recently, they’ve started to go off their loop, so they’ve been brought in for some routine maintenance by Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) to see what the problem is.
This Westworld City Slickers crossover is something that I didn’t know I wanted to see, but I’m so glad that someone took the time to make it. Watch below! Read More »
Screen Junkies is continuing their Fan Appreciation Month with another Honest Trailer that their most loyal viewers have been clamoring for. With just one more left to go before January is over, the film that landed in second place is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Author Roald Dahl adapted his own book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, for director Mel Stuart, and the result is a fever dream of candy and imagery that might seem a bit crazy by today’s standards. But for a film created in 1971, it was completely normal. However, there might be some things you didn’t realize before, like the fact that Grandpa Joe is a con artist who has two coke nails.
Unlike most Honest Trailers though, this one has a special guest in the form of Michael Bolton. Why? Well, he has an album to promote, so there you go. Watch the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Honest Trailer featuring Michael Bolton after the jump. Read More »
Since Chris Evans plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, everyone assumes he’s a good guy. And since we’ve seen his visits to children’s hospitals suited up as Captain America, we can pretty much accept that as true. But that doesn’t mean Chris Evans doesn’t like to have some playful fun at the expense of his fans.
As part of a charity initiative at Omaze, the Captain America and Avengers franchises star took part in a little prank at a comic book ship in Boston, Massachusetts. Speaking through a big Captain America action figure, Chris Evans tries to get unsuspecting fans to participate in a makeshift Escape Room inside the comic book shop, and the results are pretty damn funny.

Every weekend that there’s a new episode of Saturday Night Live, we have a recap and review of every sketch from the show from yours truly. However, since I’m currently in Park City, Utah with our own Peter Sciretta and Angie Han covering the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, it just wasn’t possible to make it happen this weekend. But there was still one sketch that we couldn’t resist pointing out.
La La Land has plenty of buzz right now, especially after winning a record-setting number of Golden Globes earlier this month. However, the movie that started off by being endlessly praised is already getting some backlash from those who don’t like it as much as its most passionate supporters and fans. One of those people who didn’t fall for La La Land as hard as people like me was this past weekend’s SNL host Aziz Ansari, and gets a pretty intense police interrogation because of it.

When it comes to entertainment today, the nostalgia train is chugging along rather smoothly as Hollywood remakes, reboots and recycles anything and everything that people loved from decades ago. Now that children of the 90s are starting to have kids of their own, movie studios, TV networks and streaming services are all trying to occupy their spare time with shows like Girls Meets World and Fuller House, as well as sequels like Jumanji. But the one movie that hasn’t been capitalized upon again (at least not quite yet) is the live-action animation hybrid sports comedy Space Jam.
There’s plenty of nostalgic love for the Warner Bros. Pictures movie that brought Michael Jordan and all of the Looney Tunes together on the big screen, and that’s blinded people as to just how lazy the movie really is. Either that or they just don’t care. But Honest Trailers is here to remind you as they deliver the third movie in their Fan Appreciation Week line-up.

Before we see Woody Harrelson take Caesar and the rest of his super-intelligent simian army in War for the Planet of the Apes this summer, he’s taking on an equally daunting endeavor: shooting the world’s first live movie.
Lost in London is an ambitious project that will have Woody Harrelson directing and starring in a movie that will be live-streamed into theaters as it’s shot on-location in London this week on January 19th. If you think that sounds like a crazy idea, don’t worry, because all of Woody Harrelson’s famous friends don’t believe he can pull it off.
Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Liam Hemsworth, Ted Danson, Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and more all roast Woody Harrelson, mocking his cinematic experiment. Watch all of these people and more roast Woody Harrelson’s live movie. Read More »
ScreenJunkies is continuing their Fan Appreciation Month with the next installment of Honest Trailers as voted on by their viewers. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure was the first one to get the Honest Trailer treatment this monthafter coming in at #5, and now we have the movie that landed the #4 spot.
The Princess Bride is one of those movies that you either watched endlessly as a kid and have an unwavering nostalgic love for it now, or you didn’t see it until you were an adult and you just don’t get why everyone rants and raves about it. And as Honest Trailers points out, even though it makes fun of the sappy, swashbuckling, medieval love stories of decades past (such as Robin Hood and Zorro), it actually turns out to be the best in that same niche genre.
