One of the highlights of NYCC for me was sitting in the Screen Junkies panel Friday afternoon, and getting a sneak peak at the latest Honest Trailer from Hal Rudnick and the Movie Fights crew. The movie, one of the biggest blockbusters of all time, and a movie that has divided fans since it debuted over the summer; Jurassic World. Or as narrator Jon Bailey calls it, â€œthe best Jurassic Park sequel ever made, which really isnâ€™t saying much.â€ This is one of the best HTâ€™s theyâ€™ve done so far.
Check out the Honest Trailer below!
Watch as the filmmakers sell a new generation the exact same story they sold their parents, complete with shoddy defensive structures, technology that goes awry at the worst possible times, and people outrunning dinosaurs… in heels! But at least theyâ€™ve â€œspared no expense.â€ Meet Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, whose names are really unimportant, as they set out to stop one of the dumbest plans in movie history… so dumb, Bailey has to read it twice. Dear God, Vincent Dâ€™Onofrioâ€™s character is such a badly written villain.
This HT had audiences at Comic Con rolling as Bailey called it the highest price SyFy original movie ever made, thatâ€™s major selling point was Chris Pratt teaching zookeepers a new cool hand motion. So ignore all the annoying questions you may have… except the one about the rolling spheres going anywhere the kids want when shopping carts in a store parking lots have automatic breaks! Câ€™mon! That annoyed me in the movie theatersâ€¦ sometimes I think the ScreenJunkies hear my complaints. But who caresâ€¦ before the final Dino-Fight was the bee’sâ€™ knees!
Starring… Zoo Lord, Shamu (the Mosasaur), and Tyrannosaurus Ex Machina… new title (and greatest SyFy-esque title of all time) â€œRAPTOR REX VS. DINOSHARK.” Stay for the dig at Jimmy Fallon at the end. Again, these guy are in my head!
Screen Junkies have over 4.8 million subscribers on YouTube and release a new Honest Trailer every Tuesday.
