Picture it: you’re in the cinema waiting for the main feature, your popcorn is still warm in your lap and then the lights dim for the previews. A trailer comes on for a film that looks AMAZING and you and your cinema-going partner turn to each other and say in unison, “we have to go and see that!” A while later you go and see the film you’re excited about and when it’s over you realise that the trailer was actually the greater artistic achievement, as they have managed to make a terrible film seem like something you’d actually watch. Honest Trailers to the rescue!
Honest Trailers by Screen Junkies is a channel on Youtube that does what it says on the tin; create trailers that are a tad more honest than the ones made by the marketing department in the film studio. Their trailers are well-produced and pretty hilarious. I’ve posted a couple of classics here for your entertainment and you can find lots more on the Screen Junkies Youtube Channel.
