As we’ve seen in Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, Tusk, Black Mass, and really too many other movies to count, Johnny Depp loves nothing more than to bury himself in makeup, wigs, and prosthetics and emerge as a total weirdo. But his latest role may be his most monstrous transformation yet.
No, we’re not talking about the Invisible Man in The Invisible Man. We’re talking about Johnny Depp playing Donald Trump in The Art of the Deal, a Funny or Die biopic (well, “biopic”) about the businessman turned presidential candidate. The entire 50-minute movie has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump. Read More »

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the Honest Trailers team is taking on one of the internet’s favorite love stories: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. And it will probably not surprise you too much to discover that, like so many other movie romances we hold near and dear to our hearts, it completely falls apart under a bit of real-world scrutiny.
Or, in the blunt words of the Honest Trailer narrator, that it’s “two hours of pure nerd wish-fullfillment” in which every character but Knives is secretly “a horrible garbage person.” But hey, they do really love Edgar Wright‘s slick, video game-inspired style. Watch the Scott Pilgrim Honest Trailer after the jump. Read More »
Though James Bond fans were excited to see what director Sam Mendes did with Spectre after knocking Skyfall out of the park back in 2012, plenty were disappointed when the film finally hit theaters last fall. While this writer didn’t find the film to be downright terrible, mostly enjoying the throwback elements of the story and villain being utilized, the film certainly lacked the kind of punch you hope to get from a 007 adventure.
Now, the Spectre Honest Trailer really sticks it to the movie, calling it “Bond-by-the-numbers,” which is pretty hard to argue with. Plus there’s a great reference to the Nintendo 64 video game Goldeneye. Read More »
One of the biggest television events of the year is coming up this weekend with the live broadcast of Super Bowl 50. The NFL has dropped the Roman numerals from the game, because people are apparently too ignorant to know that “L” means 50 — it isn’t just a typo in the graphics. But that’s beside the point, because no matter what we call the game, it’s going to be sweetened by the comedic stylings of Key and Peele.
Squarespace has announced that they will have Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele providing live commentary for the big game as their characters Lee and Morris (seen above), but it might be a little tricky because of the rules they have to follow due to the NFL’s strict copyrights regarding the Super Bowl. Find out more about the Key and Peele Super Bowl commentary below. Read More »
We feature plenty of Honest Trailers around here, and now that the 2016 Oscar nominations have been announced, we want to call your attention to some of the Honest Posters created to poke fun at some of those in the running for Academy Awards next month. What would the movie posters for films like The Revenant, Brooklyn, Straight Outta Compton, The Martian Ex Machina, Steve Jobs and more look like if their posters were more blunt, accurate descriptions of the movies? Look! Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We were all crushed by the death of David Bowie. Not only was the man a rock god, but he also had a strong influence in the genres of sci-fi and fantasy. And in honor of the late Starman, the folks at Honest Trailers have decided to take on Labyrinth. But before you go thinking that a video series traditionally used to mock movies is a pretty crappy way to honor a recently passed icon, just watch the Labyrinth Honest Trailer and see how it’s all about praising the fact that David Bowie singlehandedly makes this movie an ’80s gem.

When some new TV spots and posters arrived last week, selling Zoolander No. 2 like it was a tantalizing fragrance you could pick up at your local department store, we also pointed out that Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Penelope Cruz had landed on the cover of Vogue. You can check out their photoshoot recreating some famous spreads from the fashion magazine right here, but this video we have today is even better.
Vogue has a video series called 73 Questions where they ask a given personality, you guessed it, 73 questions. And this time the inquisition has Derek Zoolander answering some hard-hitting questions about his favorite season, what’s on his mind, what’s his favorite country, and what happens to models when they retire. Zoolander has the perfect responses for all 73 Questions. Watch! Read More »
If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, then you know that Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) can have a bit of a temper when things don’t go his way. There’s already an Emo Kylo Ren account on Twitter and an animated short featuring the First Order commander freaking out during everyday situations. Now Kylo Ren wants to see what the employees at Starkiller Base really think of his management skills and attitude by disguising himself as a radar technician named Matt on the CBS reality series Undercover Boss in a new sketch from Saturday Night Live, which was hosted by Driver himself last night.
Watch the Saturday Night Live Kylo Ren sketch after the jump! Read More »

My excitement for the upcoming revival of The X-Files found itself tempered yesterday as a new batch of early reviews arrived. To call the early response to the limited series’ first episode negative would be an understatement. The disappointment was palpable. It hung in the air like an alien fog that you could collect in a jar and bottle in a government agency, only for it to break out and wreak havoc in the middle of the season when everyone is taking a break from the overarching mythology episodes
So faithful-but-not-blind X-Files fans need a laugh today and bless Jimmy Kimmel for trying to give us one with this amusing parody, which finds him teaming up David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson for a new case. Watch it for yourself below.
