After Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters, fans were willing to make concessions for a wizarding world movie that was never going to be as good as the Harry Potter franchise. They were even willing to wait for the second chapter in the franchise to deliver on the potential promised by what was meant to be the first of five total films. But unfortunately, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald makes us wish that we could obliviate ourselves of this entire franchise before it’s truly began, and the folks at Honest Trailers couldn’t agree more.

Hey, did you forget there was a new Robin Hood movie last year? It’s hard to keep up since it seems there’s a new version of the legendary outlaw every few years. But let’s be honest, it’s been a long time since any of them were good. And unfortunately, the latest iteration starring Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton keeps the trend going.
The uniquely titled Robin Hood is so bad that you probably shouldn’t even accept the money Robin Hood is stealing from the rich, because he probably needs it more than you do after how badly this movie bombed at the box office. But as the Robin Hood Honest Trailer points out, that’s not even the worst part of this new take on Robin of Locksley. Read More »
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse brings together some of the various Spider-People spread across different dimensions. So it only makes sense that How It Should Have Ended acknowledges all the different proposed endings they’ve done for all the previous Spider-Man movies in order to properly play in this animated universe. They even do a solid job of parodying the opening sequence that introduces the “original” Spider-Man in the movie.
Find out how Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse should have ended below. Read More »
A Star Is Born didn’t take home as many Oscars as pundits thought it would when it was all the rage last fall. But Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga certainly stole the ceremony with their intimate and passionate performance of the remake’s signature tune “Shallow.” However, the folks at Honest Trailers can’t help but notice that this movie is pretty much Crazy Heart all over again, which is also kind of a remake of A Star Is Born. And now we have a nosebleed. Watch the A Star Is Born Honest Trailer below. Read More »
This weekend brings the 91st Academy Awards to ABC, and it’s probably going to be a complete disaster. Not only is there no host for the ceremony, but The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences pissed everyone off by cutting a few awards from the live broadcast (only to reinstate them in the show). On top of that, they’ve had a real problem figuring out how the nominees for Best Original Song were going to be performed during the ceremony too.
But the Oscars are really about rewarding the greatest achievements in film from the previous year. And if we’re going to do that properly, than we need to look at each and everyone of this year’s Best Picture nominees with a new perspective. That’s where the 2019 Oscars Honest Trailer comes into play, skewering each of the eight film nominated for Hollywood’s top prize. Which one will walk away with the trophy only to get lambasted online afterwards? Read More »
While we’re waiting for the first trailer for Star Wars Episode 9 (hell, just a damn title would be nice), people are getting desperate for something new from a galaxy far, far away. In fact, fans are so hungry for Star Wars that some of the more talented ones have taken the signature song from this year’s Oscar contender A Star Is Born and made it all about the struggle between Kylo Ren and Rey. The result is “A Star Wars Is Born,” a parody of the earworm tune “Shallow,” as originally sung by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. It’s actually pretty great. Read More »
