deadpool 2 trailer

Blink and you may miss the actual footage in the bizarre but on-brand Deadpool 2 trailer. Or you’ll end up with a bunch of blood and paint in your eyes.

Following up with the first film’s viral marketing, which gleefully plastered poop emoji jokes all over Los Angeles billboards, Deadpool 2‘s first trailer comes in the form of a Bob Ross parody. The name doesn’t ring a bell? It’s that sweet middle-aged guy with the alarmingly large head of hair who painted trees while talking in a soothing voice on public access television. It was like the early days of ASMR, but with Deadpool, it’s more like a sensory attack.

Batman Forever Honest Trailer

Justice League hits theaters this coming weekend, bringing us Ben Affleck‘s take on Batman again as he rounds up the DC Comics superhero team on the big screen for the first time ever. But it was a long road to get here with a couple sizeable speed bumps courtesy of director Joel Schumacher.

After Batman Returns got a little too dark, gothic and kinky for parents taking their kids to see the new Batman movie, Warner Bros. dulled things down by shifting into a more ludicrous gear with Batman Forever. Watch as Honest Trailers takes on the beginning of the end of the 1990s era of Batman, including Bat nipples and a perpetually open-mouthed Val Kilmer.

Justice League reshoots

The making of Warner Bros.’ long-brewing Justice League is as fraught with drama as almost anything you’ll see in a theater this year. Following financially successful but critically despised movies like Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, DC Films changed its tactics and wanted to lighten things up a little bit. Part of that decision involved hiring Joss Whedon to come in and rewrite sections of the film’s screenplay, and ultimately Whedon stepped into the director’s chair to direct reshoots when original director Zack Snyder stepped away due to a death in the family.

Those reshoots and their impact on the movie have become a central talking point for fans and we’ve spent a long time speculating about what the final film will look like. Some of us have seen it already, but now, just a few days from its official release, one of the movie’s producers has come forward and revealed the ratio of Whedon’s Justice League reshoots to the footage Snyder originally shot for the superhero sequel.

luke skywalker jedi temple

Ahch-To may have you thinking back to a certain recurring joke in Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tightsbut the oddly-named planet is crucial to Star Wars lore and the plot of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker finds himself in self-exile, and where the aspiring Jedi Rey finds Luke at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But The Last Jedi won’t get into the nitty-gritty of how the former Tatooine farmboy ended up in the Ahch-To Jedi Temple — nor will the movie overshare details at all, really — so you’ll have to look to the Star Wars Battlefront II video game to gain insight into this particular journey.

danny mcbride

Danny McBride co-writing a new Halloween movie with Superbad director David Gordon Green sounds like a joke, but the Vice Principals star is taking this thing very seriously. In a new interview, McBride spoke about making the series scary again, getting Jamie Lee Curtis to return, and trying to honor a series beloved by so many. That last one is admittedly tricky when you’re literally ignoring every single movie in the franchise except the original, but hey, if there’s one horror series that needs emergency surgery to stay alive, it’s Halloween.

Jaina and Jacen Solo

Star Wars is steeped in wildly esoteric lore. Though Disney stripped down the expanded world of the Star Wars universe when they took control of Lucasfilm, fans of the franchise and its expansive decades-deep landscape still use the framework set up by the books and comics to theorize on what might happen next and who we might see appear in the current Star Wars canon. Ever since the first The Force Awakens rumors started creeping around the internet, there were rumblings that the film might include two of the expanded universe’s most pivotal characters: Jaina and Jacen Solo. Though the pair never materialized, their story may well be able to give us insight into the future of another pair in the new trilogy: Rey and Kylo Ren.
