Back in the summer of 2009, the romantic comedy that swept everyone by storm was (500) Days of Summer. But for anyone who was actually paying attention to the movie, you must remember that this is not a love story. In fact, this isn’t even really a romance, because in retrospect, it’s all a little one-sided, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s character Tom really needed to learn how to listen to Summer (Zooey Deschanel) instead of forcing her to be the girl the screenwriter he’s standing in for always dreamed of. Watch as the (500) Days of Summer Honest Trailer tells it like it is. Read More »
Transformers: The Movie may have come to the big screen in 1986, but it wasn’t until 1987 that we got the first live-action movie based on a line of action figures in the form of Masters of the Universe. Inspired by the toys and animated series with the much more manly title of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, this movie has a few characters fans love, and some random ass characters that no one gives a shit about taking up 50% of the film’s running time. And that’s just one of the problems, as pointed out in the Masters of the Universe Honest Trailer. Read More »
Avengers: Endgame may have been the culmination of 21 movies that came before it, but it’s far from the end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, even if this the end of the Infinity Saga (with the exception of the epilogue provided by Spider-Man: Far From Home), this still has to set up sequels for Phase Four and a handful of Disney+ shows. So the end is the beginning, and so on and so forth. We’re all part of The Matrix. Whatever. Pick your poison, and watch the Avengers Endgame Honest Trailer. Read More »
Alita: Battle Angel is the second movie starring Christoph Waltz that featurs some very prominent big eyes. But it’s the only one that takes place in the 26th century where X-Games style sports are still all the rage and a robot girl called Alita (Rosa Salazar) who loves chocolate can defy death at the hands of an endless array of cybernetically enhanced humans with knifes for limbs. James Cameron had been wanting to make this movie for years, but he left it to Robert Rodriguez instead, for better or worse.

When Joel Schumacher took over the Batman franchise with the campy, wacky installments of Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, fans were pretty displeased. But let’s not forget that despite how dark and twisted Tim Burton‘s take on Batman was, it was also campy and wacky in its own way. We’re talking about a movie that has penguins with rockets, an army of clowns equipped with various weapons, and some kinky Bat on Cat action. We’ll let the Batman Returns Honest Trailer break it down for you. Read More »
There are plenty of superhero movies out there for kids to enjoy nowadays. But what we’ve been missing a superhero movie with some truly frightening monsters that will make them never want to see a superhero movie ever again. All you have to do is say, Shazam!.
The Shazam Honest Trailer has arrived to show us that not only can movies made for families be absolutely terrifying, but Marvel and DC Comics aren’t all that different. While Marvel Studios has a parade of movies with estranged daddy issues, DC Entertainment has a parade of sad moms with tragic pasts and questionable decisions. We must stop this rivalry and focus on having two parents who do the right thing and care about their kids! 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.

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 »
