Netflix Gives Us A Filthy Trailer For Cartoon Series 'Bojack Horseman'

"Bojack? That's a beautiful name." In case you thought Netflix was just going the drama route with Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, and the like, I'll have you know that they're also making inroads with comedy. Very high-concept comedy. Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, and Amy Sedaris have combined forces (and voices) to bring us BoJack Horseman, the story of a former celebrity horse whose day in the sun has passed and is now just trying to get through things one day at a time. The subject matter seems to be exclusively R-Rated, so this probably isn't one for the toddlers. But, hey, they get Dora. Let us have this.


Honest Action: 'Home Alone'

Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern should be more dead than their careers. Have you ever wondered how many lives your favorite action hero would need to survive a movie? We've teamed up with an actual doctor and took up time he could be using to save lives to bring you the answer. In this edition, we examine just exactly how dead Marv and Harry from Home Alone should be after facing off with Kevin McCallister. In reality, the Wet Bandits would be dead many times over and Kevin would be shipped to a psychiatric ward until he breaks free a la Michael Myers to continue his spree of Christmas murders.


‘Black Death’ Trailer Is Torture

The international trailer for Black Death is here. Also, there is a movie called Black Death. The international trailer for Black Death is here. Also, there is a movie called Black Death. The year is 1348 and every place is a total sh*thole thanks to the Plague. Sean Bean stars as a knight who travels to a village rumored to be untouched by the disease. What he finds is paranoia and superstition and people acting like the bad guy from Saw. Hey, Year 1348 Europeans! Those are just movies. You're not supposed to actually put people in iron maidens. So easily influenced by the violent images they see on television. I think this is how juggalos started.


‘The Family Guy: It’s a Trap!’ Spoofs ‘Return of the Jedi’ (Trailer)

The final chapter in the ongoing"Family Guy" spoof of the original Star Wars Trilogy is finally here. "It's a Trap" parodies Return of the Jedi, the third installment of the original films. Han (Peter), Luke (Chris) and all your old favorites are back, as well as some new faces including Jabba the Hut (Joe), the Sarlacc Pit (Meg) and Osama bin Laden. Aside from the regular "Family Guy" characters, the spoof also features a whole host of characters from"The Cleveland Show" and "American Dad." If that's not enough to pique your interest, there are cannibalistic Ewoks. If you like the trailer above, click here for a slightly different version that is supposedly more vulgar. I honestly couldn't tell the difference. (Collider)


'Hugo' Trailer Is A Dickensian 'Home Alone'

Hugo's dad gives awesome gifts, from the look of this trailer. Martin Scorsese is taking break from his Leo DiCaprio-laden works to venture off into the realm of family fare with Hugo, the story of an orphaned boy who teams up with a girl to unlock the secrets of his father's last gift to him. It's got some very Victorian sensibilities, going for the look that those Zemeckis mo-cap films went for but never got. It also boasts Sacha Baron Cohen playing it fairly straight as a train worker who is constantly on the heels of the duo. Also, he falls into a cake. On first glance, it would appear that the stars have aligned to bring us the funny, touching, 3D family film that so many studios have tried to wheel out and failed. High hopes for this one.  


Honest Trailers: 'Twilight'

If trailers were accurate... In honor of the Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 trailer, which I'm sure you're really excited about, we decided to revisit the roots of the series with our own honest trailer for Twilight. And just like the real deal, it's got everything you've come to know and love about the series: the incessant voiceovers, the prolonged staring, the statutory rape, etc., etc. Plus, it points out Bella's inability to pour ketchup, which I was unaware of. If there's a tween-age girl you're looking to piss off, be sure and forward her this trailer...unless of course there's a court order that prevents you from doing so, in which case, don't worry about it.


Cristoph Waltz, Tim Burton, And Amy Adams All Got Together To Get Us The 'Big Eyes' Trailer

It's regular people. TIM BURTON IS USING REGULAR PEOPLE! Did you ever think you'd see the day that Tim Burton released an original film about PEOPLE that didn't feature his wife or Johnny Depp? I know. It seems crazy to me, too, but this trailer for Big Eyes is proof. The film is based in reality, following Margaret Keane and her husband Walter (Adams and Waltz) as they hawked their large-eyed paintings of children to just about everyone who would buy them. And in doing so, started an adorable little San Francisco movement. The film seems pretty sweet, and is a welcome departure for Burton, who needs to come around to the fact that not every cinematic issue can be solved with pancake makeup.


Honest Trailers: 'Grown Ups'

Of all the films that deserve to be mocked...this is one of them. You might think we're a little late to the party in sending up the original Grown Ups when the second one is coming out in what seems to be a matter of minutes. But there's a good reason for that: No one on the Screen Junkies staff wants to see Grown Ups 2, even to make fun of it. But, sadly, some staffers had seen the original, and several saw it together while detained at Guantanamo Bay (some Patriot Act bullshit, don't worry about it). So here you go. We just saved you about 86 minutes and a whole lotta dignity.
