Oh how we love Screen Junkies and their Honest Trailers! Their Star Wars one certainly proved that there is no film too sacred. In a world where it’s far too easy to go sincerely negative when taking a playful jab at something, Honest Trailers manages to always show enough love of the movie to make it all OK.
Commenting on such things as the unfortunate departure of Edgar Wright as director (man, we wish he stayed on) and the fact that most of the film’s ant-manning (totally a word) is done in fairly boring locations like brief cases or bathtubs, the Screen Junkies always seem to notice something most don’t the first time around. Like the enormous amount of sucker-punching going on. Is there a punch made in this movie that was expected?
What might be most damning (even though we all agree it’s still a pretty great film) are the plot points incredibly similar to Iron Man. A billionaire loses his company to a bald man who then betrays him and a friend looks longingly at the suit they’ll wear in the sequel. We’ve come to a point where Marvel can pretty much sell us anything. The Honest Trailer proves it by including what was probably the world’s worst promo (but we love it) for the film:
