Though January is usually a dumping ground for movies that either aren’t good enough to be Oscar contenders or have no business coming out during spring and summer, director M. Night Shyamalan delivered quite a surprise to those who had given up on the man who brought us The Happening, The Last Airbender and After Earth.
Split returned M. Night Shyamalan to his roots in more ways than one with a thriller that was not only suspenseful and interesting, but it had one hell of a twist that absolutely no one saw coming. We won’t spoil what that is until after the jump though. You’ve been warned.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit Blu-ray and DVD last week, but for some reason, but the folks Honest Trailers must have wanted to give fans time to rewatch the first standalone Star Wars adventure before lampooning it for them.
The Rogue One Honest Trailer takes some jabs that you’d expect, like calling in the most expensive fan film ever made and a big budget fix for a decades old plot hole. Thankfully, it also makes sure to take shots at every single member of the ensemble cast of Rebels that it’s best to not get attached to for obvious reasons.

This week brought the Harry Potter spin-off prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to Blu-ray and DVD, so fans can repeatedly watch what is intended to the first of a total of five movies that is intended to lead up to the famous wizard duel between Albus Dumbledore and the dark wizard Grindelwald.
The bad news is that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a rough start for this new franchise as the world of magic in the United States from decades ago is filled with mostly boring characters and a story that has quite the contrived connection to the rest of the Harry Potter universe. That makes it ripe for some jokes from the folks at Honest Trailers.

This weekend brings a new big screen version of the Power Rangers to theaters, and the early reviews seem to be mixed. You’ll have to find out yourself if Lionsgate can take the multi-colored teenage superheroes and make them even more popular. But in the meantime, we can take a look at the first theatrical outing for the imported Japanese television show that turned into an American phenomenon.
The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Honest Trailer gives some good kicks to the Bulk and Skull by making fun of the lame, formulaic, cheap and downright awful film adaptation of the FOX television series that features kicks to the junk, attempted parental mass suicide, a purple version of Freddy Krueger who wants you to touch his ooze, and a story that ended up being ignored by the TV series. Gross. Read More »
With the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast arriving in theaters this week, it should come as no surprise that Honest Trailers has taken aim at Disney’s modern animated classic on which it’s based. If you’ve ever thought the story of a woman who falls in love with the hairy cursed prince who forces her to stay in his castle was a bit of a perplexing romance, then you already know what to expect from the Beauty and the Beast Honest Trailer. But the good news is that they continue their streak of parodying songs, if that’s something you enjoy. Read More »
As the weather starts to warm up with spring just around the corner, you couldn’t ask for a better time for Disney’s most recent animated musical to be available on home video.
Moana takes us to the South Pacific to follow an independent, strong young girl who wants nothing more than to set sail on the ocean and voyage towards the unknown. It’s a movie that pokes fun at all of the usual tropes you find in Disney movies, though it also adheres to almost every single one of them. That doesn’t mean it’s not good, but it does make it a prime target for some lighthearted jabs by the folks at Honest Trailers.

In Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme manages to survive a gnarly car accident, Mads Mikkelsen in full villain mode, an extremely feisty cape, and a third-act climax that isn’t a big CG battle in the sky. But can he withstand the cutting scorn of the Screen Junkies team?
… I mean, probably. Strange knows actual magic and has a fancy time-turning gem. And he’s played by an Oscar-nominated A-lister and controlled by Marvel Studios, one of the most reliable hit machines in Hollywood history. This dude’s gonna be fine. But the point we’re trying to make here is that it’s Strange’s turn to go under the knife and get the Honest Trailers treatment. So click through to watch the Doctor Strange Honest Trailer below.

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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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.
