After The Sixth Sense and before going downhill fast with as the years went on, M. Night Shyamalan delivered one of the most grounded and gritty comic book movies of all time, and he did it before comic book movies were all the rage. Unbreakable focuses on a simple security guard named David Dunn (Bruce Willis) who slowly discovers that he has superpowers. However, as Honest Trailers illustrates, the real superpower on display in Unbreakable is the power of long, meaningful staring.

In case you didn’t hear, Venom made a stupid amount of money at the global box office to the tune of over $855 million. No matter how hard critics came down on the Spider-Man spin-off, it didn’t stop audiences from being curious enough to see how one of the webslinger’s most iconic villains worked on his own. Of course, that doesn’t mean the movie is anywhere near flawless, and the folks at Honest Trailers have plenty of jokes to make at the movie’s expense.

This past summer brought another Mission: Impossible movie to the big screen, and Tom Cruise outdid himself again with another series of incredible stunts that he performed himself. From flying his own helicopter and doing an insane HALO jump from 25,000 feet above the ground, Tom Cruise pulled out all the stops for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and one of these days he’s going to die pulling off one of these stunts. At least that’s the prediction laid out on the table by Honest Trailers.

It’s hard to craft a Christmas movie that becomes a holiday hit that you want to watch every single year. Most Christmas movies you just watch simply because they happen to be on around the Yuletide season, but every once in a while there’s a true classic that stands the test of time.
Perhaps the only true modern Christmas classic is Elf from 2003, and it’s so delightful that not even Honest Trailers can bring themselves to say anything really bad about it. But they certainly have fun diving into how damn weird this story is. Get in the holiday spirit by watching the Elf Honest Trailer below. Read More »
There seems to be a new movie with a killer shark in it at least every other year, and it’s up to the filmmaker whether that movie is going to be good like Jaws, bad like Jaws: The Revenge or so bad it’s good like Deep Blue Sea. But somehow, The Meg toes the line by having so much insane shark attack action juxtaposed with some pretty serious drama. It’s all a little perplexing.

We’ve already seen how Incredibles 2 should have ended, but now it’s time for a postmortem of a different kind as Honest Trailers takes a crack at the perfectly passable sequel to the superhero adventure that arrived 14 years ago.

Now that the new Halloween in theaters, marking the third attempt at making Halloween II, and the third time a movie was called simply Halloween, take a tongue-in-cheek look back at the film that started it all.
John Carpenter’s Halloween is the beginning of the slasher trend of movies with masked killers stalking suburban teens, and there’s a reason Michael Myers is still one of the most iconic slashers of all time. However, maybe we shouldn’t rule out Dr. Samuel Loomis (Donald Pleasance) for being a bit of a dick in his own way. Read More »
Hey, remember Ant-Man and the Wasp? It’s hard to believe, but Marvel Studios had three movies hit theaters this year, but because the Ant-Man sequel wasn’t as successful or Earth-shattering as Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, it barely made a dent in the minds of fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That doesn’t mean it should be ignored, but that also makes it the perfect target for mockery from the folks at Honest Trailers. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There have been some truly great mob movies over the years like The Godfather, GoodFellas, Casino, A Bronx Tale, and Road to Perdition. But we’re here to talk about a movie that will remind you how difficult it is to make a truly great movie about the mafia without coming off like a tired cliche full of comically Italian names, ludicrous accents, and an Olive Garden menu.
Gotti just might be the worst movie of the year, which is saying something when movies like Show Dogs and Hurricane Heist also came out this year. But at least those movies know exactly what they are. Meanwhile, John Travolta comes through with flying colors in all the wrong ways, delivering a performance that can best be described as a man who fell into a Martin Scorsese spoof but takes it extremely seriously. See the Gotti Honest Trailer to see what we’re dealing with here. Read More »
No one asked for an origin story for Han Solo, but earlier this year we got one anyway in the form of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Sure, you might have forgotten that movie came out in theaters towards the beginning of the summer, but now it’s out on Blu-ray and DVD, so everyone who skipped it in theaters can scoff at it from the comfort of their own home.
Also doing plenty of scoffing is the Solo A Star Wars Story Honest Trailer, which accurately notes that this is the darkest Star Wars movie yet. No, seriously, it’s literally dark and it can be somewhat difficult to make out what’s going on in some scenes. But hey, at least they didn’t come up with a stupid origin for Han Solo’s name. Oh, wait. Read More »
