Honest Trailers continues their run through blockbuster summer with a look back at the role that solidified Keanu Reeves as a certified action star long before he got pissed off at someone for killing his wife and his dog.
Speed is probably one of the more unbelievable action movies to come out of the 1990s, but that doesn’t stop it from being a non-stop thrill ride that finds a bus tearing through the parts of greater Los Angeles at over 50 miles per hour. And just in case you forget how fast the bus is supposed to be going, don’t worry, because they’ll keep reminding you every five minutes or so. Watch the Speed Honest Trailer below. Read More »
It’s summer blockbuster season, and Screen Junkies is taking advantage of it by bringing forth a series of Honest Trailers looking back at some of the biggest movies from years ago. First up on the docket is The Mummy. No, not the easy target starring Tom Cruise (they’ve already done that one). Instead, it’s The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser where he plays a smoldering hero who is uncannily like Indiana Jones, except he shoots at every problem a lot more. Seriously, every problem.

As has become customary on Mondays for the past few weeks, everyone was talking about Game of Thrones yesterday. However, joining the usual debate, reactions and speculation about what’s to come in the remaining episodes of the season was something much different. Following the most recent episode, titled “The Last of the Starks,” fans were laughing online because it seemed that a Starbucks coffee cup was somehow left right in the middle of a table in front of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). HBO responded to the error, and they’ve already corrected it. Read More »
Over at The Late Late Show, host James Corden likes to have fun with the guests. And when you have two willing participants as Long Shot stars Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, then you get a new edition of Role Call where the two stars reenact 20 different beloved romantic comedies, ranging from the classic When Harry Met Sally to the more recent Love, Simon. And they even manage to sneak Knocked Up in there for a good laugh. Read More »
Detective Pikachu is coming to theaters later this month, but let’s not forget that back in 1998, the craze for Pokémon was so big that it demanded a big screen adventure imported from Japan.
Pokémon: The First Movie brings Ash Ketchum and his little buddy Pikachu to the big screen in the movie that introduces the genetically engineered psychic Pokémon called Mewtwo. Plus, as the Pokemon movie Honest Trailer points out, the movie is somehow against Pokémon fighting with each other except when it’s in an officially sanctioned Pokémon battle. What? Read More »
Marvel Studios may be the king of comic book movies right now, but when the first Marvel Comics title hit the big screen back in 1986, it was anything but good. In fact, it’s probably one of the most perplexingly bad movies ever made.
It’s hard to believe that the wisecracking, inappropriate Howard the Duck was considered to be the most viable Marvel Comics character to get the big screen treatment first. But then again, the 1980s was a wild time, so the thought of a walking, talking, musically inclined playboy duck hooking up with a human woman while being stuck on Earth wasn’t so weird.

Captain Marvel was the last film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to hit the big screen before Avengers: Endgame kicked off the summer box office with a bang. Though the film does a solid job introducing us to Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as the Air Force pilot turned cosmic superhero known as Captain Marvel, it’s held back slightly by feeling like a set-up for her character to make a big impact in Avengers: Endgame. Thankfully, the folks at How It Should Have Ended figured out how to take care of this much more quickly.

Earlier this year, Glass hit theaters, bringing together M. Night Shyamalan‘s 19-year old grounded superhero drama Unbreakable and his kidnapping thriller Split into one single universe where a superhero finally faces off with two powerful super villains. And by face off, we meet quietly and calmly sit next to each other while a conniving doctor tries to convince them that they’re not characters from a real life comic book. It’s…something else, and the Glass Honest Trailer is just as perplexed as we are after watching this movie. Beware of spoilers! Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Mortal Engines was the movie everyone forgot to see last winter. Even with Peter Jackson’s name attached as producer and a promising post-apocalyptic world for adventure, the prospect of major mobile cities that eat smaller mobile cities wasn’t enticing enough to get viewers into theaters. That’s why Mortal Engines lost Universal Pictures about $100 million when all is said and done. Maybe they should have leaned more on the undead cyborg father. Oh what’s that? You didn’t know about that character? We’ll let the Mortal Engines Honest Trailer fill you in. Read More »
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington took the stage in Studio 8H in 30 Rockefeller Plaza to host Saturday Night Live for the first time. Since the series has finished shooting, he didn’t bring his signature Jon Snow beard with him, and he also wasn’t divulging any secrets about the final season. But that didn’t stop SNL from revealing the slate of upcoming Game of Thrones spin-offs, prequels and sequels that HBO has in the works to fill in the void left by the end of their hit fantasy show.
