Last year brought Michael Myers home again for the anticipated Halloween sequel that went back to the roots of the franchise. It took Eastbound & Down star Danny McBride and Your Highness director David Gordon Green to give fans the face-off between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers that Halloween H20 didn’t really do properly. And while Michael Myers is more brutal than ever after being locked up for 40 years, as the Halloween Honest Trailer illustrates, the real monsters are the true crime podcasters.

Clueless is one of those generation-defining comedies that has stood the test of time. It’s one of the best representations of the ’90s, albeit with a focus on a very niche demographic of upscale Los Angelenos living a mostly superficial, carefree life. Much of the film’s greatness comes from Alicia Silverstone‘s pitch perfect performance as the teenage Cher, a bubbly, confident and charming spoiled girl who manages to somehow be both down to Earth and up in the clouds at the same time. But what if the role was played by someone completely different?
W Magazine rounded up Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Alden Ehrenreich and Lucas Hedges to deliver one of Cher’s famous debate speeches from Clueless responding to whether or not all oppressed people should be allowed refuge in America (how timely!), and half of the participants make it worth watching. We’ll let you watch and see which ones really put the effort into it. Read More »
After The Sixth Sense and before going downhill fast with as the years went on, M. Night Shyamalan delivered one of the most grounded and gritty comic book movies of all time, and he did it before comic book movies were all the rage. Unbreakable focuses on a simple security guard named David Dunn (Bruce Willis) who slowly discovers that he has superpowers. However, as Honest Trailers illustrates, the real superpower on display in Unbreakable is the power of long, meaningful staring.

In case you didn’t hear, Venom made a stupid amount of money at the global box office to the tune of over $855 million. No matter how hard critics came down on the Spider-Man spin-off, it didn’t stop audiences from being curious enough to see how one of the webslinger’s most iconic villains worked on his own. Of course, that doesn’t mean the movie is anywhere near flawless, and the folks at Honest Trailers have plenty of jokes to make at the movie’s expense.

The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.
In this edition, go behind the scenes of Google’s recent Home Alone Again commercial starring Macaulay Culkin. Plus, the Home Alone star sits down with the Angry Video Game Nerd to play the awful video game adaptations of the holiday classic and its sequel, and Drunk History tells the story of Charles Dickens and the creation of A Christmas Carol.

Macaulay Culkin has never been able to escape Home Alone. Even though it’s been 28 years since the holiday classic comedy arrived, it’s still his most famous role. Even though he doesn’t like to make the Home Alone face when he takes pictures with fans, he still knows his lines from the movie very well, and doesn’t mind watching the movie again if there’s a certain girl he’s trying to impress. But apparently his attempts to distance himself from the past couldn’t withstand the temptation of a paycheck from Google.
To promote a new Home Alone-centric, holiday-themed update to Google Assistant, Macaulay Culkin reprised his role as Kevin McCallister in a new commercial. He revisits all the hotspots in the McCallister household, including jumping on the bed, eating junk and watching rubbish, and ordering a delicious cheese pizza just for him. But this time, he has the help of Google Assistant. Read More »
This past summer brought another Mission: Impossible movie to the big screen, and Tom Cruise outdid himself again with another series of incredible stunts that he performed himself. From flying his own helicopter and doing an insane HALO jump from 25,000 feet above the ground, Tom Cruise pulled out all the stops for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and one of these days he’s going to die pulling off one of these stunts. At least that’s the prediction laid out on the table by Honest Trailers.

A new Saturday Night Live aired over the weekend, the first of three episodes closing out 2018 with a bang. First-time host Claire Foy (The Girl in the Spider’s Web, First Man) was a satisfying guest during a solid episode of the series, which featured two sketches that were very much lined up with our interests and deserved to be singled out.
First up, SNL created a commercial for Netflix and their seemingly endless creation of new streaming content each and every day, including a tease at some of their upcoming projects. But the real treat is a new take on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which explores the more disturbing side of living with in a house where all four of your grandparents sleep together in the same bed.

It’s hard to craft a Christmas movie that becomes a holiday hit that you want to watch every single year. Most Christmas movies you just watch simply because they happen to be on around the Yuletide season, but every once in a while there’s a true classic that stands the test of time.
Perhaps the only true modern Christmas classic is Elf from 2003, and it’s so delightful that not even Honest Trailers can bring themselves to say anything really bad about it. But they certainly have fun diving into how damn weird this story is. Get in the holiday spirit by watching the Elf Honest Trailer below. Read More »
With Creed II heading to theaters this week, the folks over at Honest Trailers have reached deep into their vault to pull out one of their classic episodes from all the way back in 1985 when Rocky IV was all the rage. It was a different time, when America wasn’t going to put up with Russia bossing us around, and it was up to Rocky to teach the Soviet Union a lesson so that Russia would never mess with us again. That certainly worked out for us, right? Read More »
