Despite a fascinatingly goofy performance by Tom Hardy doing his best impression of a tar-covered, monstrous version of The Mask, it’s probably safe to say that Venom should have ended before it made it to theaters. But since we saw an entire film of a timid, sweaty, tater-tot loving Eddie Brock with no Spider-Man in sight, it’s up to the folks at How It Should Have Ended to show us how this movie should have gone instead. And in this case, it should come as no surprise to see that Venom could have been over almost as soon as it started.
Find out how Venom should have ended below. Read More »
Summer blockbuster season get a big jolt this week with the arrival of Spider-Man: Far From Home. But over at Honest Trailers, they’re celebrating blockbusters the only way they know how: by making fun of them.
Coincidentally enough, as Spider-Man returns to the box office for his second solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we take a look back at another Independence Day blockbuster involving a big screen spider. Except this movie is much hornier, lazier, and it even has its own catchy rap song. Yes, we’re talking about the Wild Wild West Honest Trailer, and boy, it’s a doozy. Read More »
Summer has been full of big blockbusters for years, but back in 1995, the biggest bomb was an entire movie called Waterworld. Making just $88 million in the United States on a reported budget of $175 million, the movie was a massive disappointment. If it wasn’t for the budget being made up with the $175 million made in international markets, things would have been much worse for Universal, but the movie still ended up mostly being a wash for the studio. But why?
The Waterworld Honest Trailer shows reminds us exactly why this movie didn’t connect with audiences. Not only is the high concept simply Mad Max soaking wet, but Kevin Costner isn’t exactly the most charismatic leading man for a summer action adventure. He’s not even likeable when standing next to an insane eyepatch wearing Dennis Hopper. Read More »
Who would have thought that the Marvel Comics characters that no movie studio wanted very much would help launch the most successful film franchise of all-time? Kevin Feige did, and Marvel Studios was so successful that they got bought out by The Walt Disney Comapny before it was cool. And with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home wrapping up this first era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe this summer, now is the perfect time to tackle (almost) all the movies in the 300th Honest Trailer.

As Doctor Strange told us in Avengers: Infinity War, there was only one path that saw Earth’s mightiest heroes defeating Thanos in Avengers: Endgame. But that didn’t stop the people at How It Should Have Ended from pointing out the various ways in which the events of Marvel’s epic summer blockbuster could have gone much differently. Some of these paths involve questions that fans had after repeat viewings of the movie, but many of them can simply be debunked by Doctor Strange’s singular vision of victory. Even so, you can find out how Avengers Endgame should have ended below. Read More »
When it comes to big screen superheroes, the ladies haven’t gotten the spotlight nearly as much as the dudes. That’s why Captain Marvel is easily the Citizen Kane of female superhero movies that aren’t called Wonder Woman. Even if it feels like a stepping stone between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the movie still introduces us to one of the most powerful superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it does it while kicking dirt in the faces of all the fanboys who just want Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) to smile and turn the other cheek. That’s good enough for us, but the Captain Marvel Honest Trailer doesn’t let the movie off that easily. Read More »
As the summer blockbuster season continues, Honest Trailers plows through with their skewering of big movies from years ago, and this time they’re unleashing the most majestic form of Nicolas Cage.
Con Air finds Nicolas Cage aboard a prisoner transfer plane with some of the most deadly criminals you’ve ever seen. But he’s the only one who has finished his sentence, and he just wants to get home for his daughter’s birthday. He even has a stuffed bunny for her that sparks the most high stakes unboxing video. Watch the Con Air Honest Trailer for a reminder of why this movie has just as many Oscar nominations as Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Vertigo. Read More »
Tig Notaro has been in show business for years, touring the country as a stand-up comedian, appearing in shows like Community, Transparent, Fresh Off the Boat, The Office, Bob’s Burgers, and most recently Star Trek Discovery. She’s also appeared in movies such as In a World…, Walk of Shame and Instant Family. But despite all her time spent in the film and TV industry, she’s still woefully clueless when it comes to pop culture. That’s where her new Funny or Die series comes into play.
Tig Notaro is hosting a new show called Under a Rock where she’ll interview celebrities that she doesn’t recognize or know of at all. But she’ll hopefully figure out who they are with a series of clues and questions. The first guest in the inaugural episode is Dawson’s Creek heartthrob James Van Der Beek, and as you’ll quickly see, Tig Notaro isn’t doing a bit at all. She legitimately has no idea who he is. Watch and enjoy. Read More »

This weekend brings Disney’s remake of their 1992 animated classic Aladdin to theaters. If the early buzz is to be believed, the movie is surprisingly better than the marketing has indicated so far, though with only 60% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s clearly not impressing everyone.
But before you get to this updated version of Aladdin, it’s time to look back at the original Disney version to see how it should have ended. Because if you think about it, Aladdin shouldn’t have really had a problem with being a real prince and marry Princess Jasmine. He really doesn’t understand how wishes from genie’s work.
