We all know the heroic tale of how “Honest Trailers” single-handedly saved Captain America: The Winter Soldier from sucking. This fan-made YouTube trailer imagines a world before “Honest Trailers,” where films were allowed to go unchecked by the nitpicking masses on the Internet — the 80′s. Turns out, it would have been a pretty solid film back then too.

Honest Trailers Cited As Reason That ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Was So Good http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/honest-trailers-cited-as-reason-that-captain-america-the-winter-soldier-was-so-good/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/honest-trailers-cited-as-reason-that-captain-america-the-winter-soldier-was-so-good/#comments Mon, 08 Sep 2014 16:22:42 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=264764 Aw, shucks. Just doing our duty, ma'am.

When we created the Honest Trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier we were hard-pressed to find anything to fixate on and tear down because, let’s face it, that movie was pretty awesome. The gentlemen that we are, we graciously waved the white flag of surrender. However, at the time, we weren’t aware that the reason the movie was so good was because of us and our razor-sharp wit and handsome-but-still-approachable good looks.

It all started when a brave band of humor writers had the fearlessness to say, “Enough! The Phantom Menace and Twilight aren’t very good.” And the rest leads us to today, when The Winter Soldier co-director Joe Russo revealed to Collider that it was our own incessant nitpicking and cynicism that lead to their movie making sense.

“What’s so funny is that I’m an avid Honest Trailer watcher. I love it. It cracks me up. So…we used to sit in the room and go, ‘this is not going to end up in an Honest Trailer. This logic isn’t sound enough yet.’ We literally tried to Honest Trailer-proof the movie. Because what Honest Trailers really is, and I’ll say litmus test again, is ‘how sound is the logic in your film? How ridiculous are the buys that you’re asking the audience to make?’ So we would just comb through the script over and over again and go, ‘How do we shore up this logic? How do we shore up this logic?’ So it was a very helpful exercise for us.”

That’s awesome. As fans of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and film-making in general, we’re both shocked and proud that our voice managed to break through and make a difference out there. Moreover, it’s a reminder that your opinion matters and if you can get it out there, you too can do great things like prevent Captain America from fighting a guy who uses a freeze ray.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

Revisit the far superior sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger, a story of popsicle assassins and 90-year-old soldiers that was…actually really good. This one was hard, you guys. Get ready for some nitpicking!

‘Captain America 2′ Made $96 Million This Weekend.

Because Americans absolutely delight in both comic book movies and things with “America” in their title, Captain America: The Winter Soldier had an amazing opening weekend, shattering April records by taking in about $96 million.

Cap’n America knocked off Noah, who was pretty cool, but didn’t even have a shield, and the Y.A. adaptation Divergent to easily dominate the competition. In case you were thinking that Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel may have held off the Cap’n, you’re wrong, however, the film did manage to bring home $6 million bucks, which is about $1 for every obscure Kinks song used in the film.

So, if you thought that the Avengers universe might be losing a little steam with weaker entries like Thor 2...NOPE. We’re quickly approaching an “all-comic book movies, all-the-time” approach to cinema.

The full-length Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer flew into our homes last night like some kind of flying disc and with it a better introduction to The Winter Soldier and Falcon. Here we see Cap adjusting to modern day and testing the limits of his shield against advanced weapons technology as well as the 1990′s Mortal Kombat 2 technology. He’s the world’s only hope against the uprise of the robot arms.

It only stands to reason that a trailer for a new Captain America movie should receive its own F*ck Yeah! remix. It’s Internet law.

Captain America is back and adjusting to having to punch bad guys in modern day. Judging from this first trailer, it looks like it won’t disappoint. Here we see Chris Evans as Cap teaming up with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow to take on a new threat from his past — his former boy sidekick Bucky Barnes reborn as The Winter Soldier aka Guy Who Can Catch Cap’s Shield. I especially like around the 2:00 mark where they slap-box and look like sparring kittens.

Anthony Mackie also looks awesome as The Falcon taking on a f&*king jet with two Uzi pistols. All in all, impressive work from directors Anthony and Joe Russo. The guys best known for that NBC monkey comedy that bombed really hard.

Robert Redford (or Big Red Dog, as he prefers to never be called) is in talks to join Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Deadline reports he’s being looked to to play a senior leadership role at S.H.I.E.L.D., the agency run by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury. You need an actor with that weight to play the man Powers Boothe answers to.

What remains unclear is whether or not the character has some link to Chris Evan’s Steve Rogers before he was frozen in a block of ice and perfectly preserved for sixty-plus years. I’m talking about Rogers here. Though Redford looks amazingly maintained, no one’s insinuating he’s perfectly preserved.

Warrior’s Frank Grillo has officially signed on to play the villain Crossbones in the upcoming Marvel sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

In the comics, the character was introduced as a mercenary working with Red Skull. He’s gone by several ridiculous names, such as Bingo, Frag, and Mr. Bones — which kind of sound like what a Marine would name their dog. However, it’s unknown what role Crossbones will serve in The Winter Soldier storyline, which sees the resurrection of Cap’s sidekick Bucky Barnes. All that we can really bet on is that dude will have a shield dramatically hucked at him during some point in the film. (Variety)
