Since The Predator is heading into theaters this weekend (albeit to mostly disappointed reviews), of course the folks at Honest Trailers wanted to flashback all the way to 1987 for a tongue-in-cheek look back at the only truly great movie in the Predator franchise.
Watch the Predator Honest Trailer below. Read More »
The Conjuring franchise from director and producer James Wan has been the starting point for horror spin-offs like Annabelle and The Nun (in theaters this weekend). And while the movies undoubtedly paint a scary picture, The Conjuring Honest Trailer points out that it’s hard to feel sorry for the families at the center of these stories when they obviously didn’t do the legwork to make sure the new houses they moved into didn’t have any serious problems, like ghosts, demons, possessed items or strange deaths.

Since the character of Deadpool already makes fun of himself and is self-referential enough to take the wind out of the sails of a movie mocking web series like Honest Trailers (not to mention appearing in his own Honest Trailer for the first movie), there’s only one thing to do: bring in Deadpool to make fun of Honest Trailers.
The Deadpool 2 Honest Trailer gets interrupted by Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, and he totally hijacks the video to take jabs at Honest Trailers by mocking whatever internet company owns them this week and mocking the more cliche elements of each of their videos. It’s actually pretty clever. Read More »
Now that Avengers: Infinity War has come home for you to watch over and over again, it’s time to crack some jokes at the expense of what will likely be the most successful movie of 2018, even if it didn’t make quite as much in the United States as Black Panther did on his first solo outing.
So settle in and laugh at Thanos as he tries to destroy half of all life in the universe, a task that has taken him so long that his skin has changed color twice since he was introduced in the mid-credits scene of The Avengers. Read More »
With The Meg chomping into theaters this weekend, you can’t help but think back on all the other shark movies that come along every few years, each trying to put their own creative spin on what Steven Spielberg already perfected with Jaws. And in the case of Deep Blue Sea, what we got were intelligent sharks that weren’t going to be duped by chum and barrels. But that doesn’t mean the movie surrounding these sharks was any less dumb. But we’ll let the Deep Blue Sea Honest Trailer break that down for you. Read More »
There have been countless adaptations of Peter Pan over the years, but undoubtedly the most beloved take on J.M. Barrie’s classic fantasy is actually a sequel from director Steven Spielberg.
Hook takes the story of Peter Pan and basically forgets about the whole thing. Well, at least it makes it so that Peter Pan himself has forgotten all of his adventures in Neverland, opting to become a stressed out, grumpy business man named Peter Banning played by a totally clean shaven Robin Williams. But when Peter is forced to go back to Neverland to save his kidnapped children from Captain Hook, we get a magical adventure full of child abandonment and neglect, depressed pirates, and perpetual war between adults and kids. You know, a real family film perfect for the Honest Trailers treatment. Read More »
After hitting the big screen in March, Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Ready Player One has already taken some licks for being a glorified trip down memory lane full of seemingly heartless pop culture references to movies that are far better than the one you’re watching. But the Ready Player One Honest Trailer still has some last minute jabs to get in as the movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD this week. Read More »
A Quiet Place is a certified hit. The movie that started off as another possible Cloverfield anthology film turned into one of the biggest successes of the spring. Now that it’s available on home video, an Honest Trailer can dive into every single near soundless frame of the movie that, on one hand, depicts a terrifying dystopian world, but on another, has inadvertently created a father’s paradise for John Krasinski. Because where can you demand quiet all the time, go fishing and keep your kids from watching all your televisions. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Dwayne Johnson is officially starring in so many movies that the Honest Trailer for his video game adaptation Rampage has arrived the exact same week that his new action thriller Skyscraper hits theaters. That might just be because Screen Junkies is trying to capitalized on all of the chatter surrounding The Rock now that he has a new movie coming out, but Rampage does come to Blu-ray and DVD next Tuesday, so it all kind of works out.
Anyway, the Rampage Honest Trailer does exactly what you’d expect it to do with a video game movie that has one of the weakest stories, some of the cheesiest one-liners, and truly awful dialogue. Oh, and did we mention the action sequences are totally bonkers? Read More »
The folks at Honest Trailers have no problem singling out movies and making fun of them mercilessly. However, in the case of two releases from the spring of 2018, neither of them is apparently worth enough of their time to get their own Honest Trailer.
That’s right. Both Pacific Rim Uprising and Tomb Raider are so down the middle of the line that they’re being put into a single Honest Trailer double feature. They both just to happen to be movies that exist because Warner Bros. Pictures need to do something with the video game intellectual property they inherited, and Pacific Rim Uprising just so happened to rake in box office bucks in China. Read More »
