Bad Boys for Life arrives in theaters this week, but before you see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence back in action, you can see them making the publicity rounds to promote the movie. In a little Bad Boys video round-up, we’ve got the dynamic duo attending a therapy session in character as Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett, their Hollywood alter egos going shopping for some sweet kicks, and a Bad Boys Honest Trailer taking us all the way back to the start.

If Quentin Tarantino stays true to his plan, there’s only one more movie that the writer and director wants to make before he retires. Of course, Steven Soderbergh talked about retirement for years, and we all saw how that went, so maybe there’s nothing to worry about. But while we wait for the eventual 10th (and potentially) final film from Quentin Tarantino, why not look back at every single film he’s directed through the lens of Honest Trailers. And yes, there’s plenty of feet in the video to go around. Read More »
Over the years, Star Trek movies have been hit or miss. In fact, the inconsistency in their quality is so significant that Galaxy Quest is largely considered by Trekkies to be one of the best Star Trek movies ever made. After all, it’s a movie following the washed up stars of a Star Trek-style series who get hired to play real heroes, only to disappoint an entire alien race and then save the day by actually becoming the heroes they played on TV. Yeah, Galaxy Quest got complicated fast, and they didn’t even introduce a whole alternate timeline. Watch the Galaxy Quest Honest Trailer for more. Read More »
After Stephen King’s IT arrived on the big screen with chills and thrills, making it the highest grossing horror movie of all-time, audiences couldn’t wait to see how the story continued. But were they anticipating it enough to sit through a 169-minute movie where half of the adventure doesn’t really payoff and has more laughs than scares? The significantly less impressive box office says no, and honestly, they’re probably better off for it. Find out why in the Honest Trailer for IT Chapter Two below. Read More »
It’s officially Christmas season, and if you didn’t get enough shopping done on Black Friday last weekend, you’ll have plenty of time in the weeks ahead to partake in the time-honored tradition of capitalism, all in the name of religion. But before you head out to do shopping in person like someone who has a death wish, maybe you need a reminder of how terrible it is to shop in the real world with a little help from Jingle All the Way and Honest Trailers.

Following the box office performance of The Princess and the Frog (which was only seen as a disappointment thanks to Avatar stealing all of the attention), Walt Disney Animation Studios decided to abandon traditional 2D animation and charge into the computer animated arena with a new take on Rapunzel. However, eager to move away from the Disney princess moniker that didn’t appeal to boys as much, they called the movie Tangled, and it was the beginning of a whole new creative era for Disney.
Unfortunately, since Tangled was the first, it wasn’t quite as polished as the movies that would follow, like Frozen and Moana. In fact, while some of the characters and writing might be a little more clever in some respects, as the Tangled Honest Trailer will point out, the soundtrack isn’t exactly full of the most memorable tunes, even with music composed by Disney legend Alan Menken.

This weekend brings early screenings of Doctor Sleep, at least for Fandango VIP members. But for the rest of us, we’ll have to wait another week before reuniting with Danny Torrance nearly 40 years after he was traumatized at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. The good news is you can pass at least some of the time with The Shining Honest Trailer, which reminds you of all the different possible metaphors this movie may contain while also pointing out that there are about three kinds of shots you see over and over.

You know what action movies are missing these days? Swift kicks and punches to the nuts. Thankfully, there are plenty of movies from the past that deliver the kind of breathtaking groin shots that can incapacitate even the strongest man. In the case of Total Recall, that man is Arnold Schwarzenegger, and he takes a couple good shots to the wedding tackle, courtesy of Sharon Stone.
But perhaps more importantly, Total Recall clearly holds the inspiration for a couple of the biggest sci-fi movies of the 1990s and 2000s. The Total Recall Honest Trailer looks back at this 1980s sci-fi classic, and when you break down the plot, it’s hard not to see elements of The Matrix and Avatar. Check it out below. Read More »

Zombieland: Double Tap is coming to theaters this week, but it’s been 10 years since the original movie hit theaters. That means it’s time for the folks behind Honest Trailers to do what they do best.
For a movie called Zombieland,you might be surprised at just how few zombies there are in a world that was supposedly ravaged by them in just a couple months. But there are certainly a lot of wisecracks, rules to follow, and looking back at everything in this Zombieland Honest Trailer, it seems a little weird that Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) is craving a Twinkie. How many Twinkies do you eat in a given year? Read More »
Spider-Man: Far From Home was almost the last time we got to see your favorite webslinger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe because Sony Pictures and The Walt Disney Company can’t stop arguing over who gets Peter Parker on the weekends. But thankfully, the two struck a new deal, and we’ll get to see what all the seeds planted for Spider-Man 3 and Phase Four of the MCU grow into.
Oh, there was also a whole movie where Spider-Man went on vacation and couldn’t stop thinking about Iron Man. Sounds like what the entire summer was for most Marvel fans before Spider-Man: Far From Home came out. And because of that, the movie is packed with almost as much Iron Man as there is Spider-Man. Watch the Spider-Man: Far From Home Honest Trailer for more. Read More »
