Pirates of the Caribbean honest trailer

It’s a rare treat when the Screen Junkies team does an Honest Trailer for one movie let alone four. But their latest honest trailer is for Pirates of the Caribbean and they don’t just stick to the first film or trilogy. They go all the way up to On Stranger Tides, the billion dollar success no one remembers a single thing about.

Besides the sheer volume of films skewered here, the Pirates of the Caribbean Honest Trailer does a great job poking fun at the insane notion that pirates – one of history’s most violent and terrible groups – could be Disneyfied. My favorite bit is probably where they trailer shows that death is literally impossible in these movies as men are stabbed, shot and worse, and never ever die.

Turbo Kid

You can’t throw a rock at Sundance without hitting a coming-of-age tale, but it’s safe to say Turbo Kid is different from most. The Park City at Midnight entry follows an orphaned boy (Munro Chambers) in a retro-futuristic, post-apocalyptic 1997. After his best friend (Laurence Leboeuf) is kidnapped by the evil Zeus (Michael Ironside), he sets out across the Wasteland on his BMX bike to find her.

Co-director Anouk Whissell describes it as “an old crazy 80s kid movie,” while co-director François Simard adds that it’s “made for the inner children in all of us.” (Yoann-Karl Whissell is the third co-director.) But it’s not made for people who are also children on the outside — it’s gleefully gory, as you’ll see from the first Turbo Kid trailer after the jump.
