Honest Trailers: Prometheus

Posted October 5, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

As the DVD/Blu-ray release of Prometheus heads to stores this coming Tuesday, October 9, you'll probably benefit from a proper primer to at least contextualize the confusion that may hit if you're watching the film for the fist time.

The latest honest trailer from the folks at Screen Junkies takes Ridley Scott's "prequel-ish" Alien film, lays it on an operating table, and cuts out a squid baby made from glaring inconsistencies faster than Ellen Ripley can tell them to "get away from it, you bitch."

Indeed, when a film is "kind of, sort of" a prequel to one of the most iconic films in sci-fi/horror history, you just know that fan analysis like this would pick it apart to its very engineered DNA.

Stone Cold E.T. Orders Drive-Thru

Stone Cold E.T. may have accidentally crashed in an affluent suburb, hangs around with children, and has an unnatural craving for Reese's Pieces, but don't think he won't whoop your mealy-mouthed ass on the way to White Castle.

You see, Stone Cold E.T. is pissed off about number of things from a horrible video game being made about him on the Atari to seeing Steven Spielberg go back to his movie and digitally replace guns with walkie-talkies. He's not above taking it out on you, me, or Vince McMahon.

...And that's the bottom line 'cause Stone Cold E.T. phones home! Can I get a hell yeah?!

Skyfall: Theme Song From Adele Hits

The theme song to Skyfall by Adele has hit and is already being hailed as one of the best Bond themes ever.

What better way to celebrate "Global James Bond Day," the 50th anniversary of Agent 007's big screen debut in Dr. No, than with a sneak preview for your ears from his upcoming big screen return?

Hearkening back to the classy, power vocal performances of Shirley Bassey's numerous Bond themes, Adele also manages to reflect the dark and tortured pathos of Daniel Craig's James Bond.

Skyfall hits theaters with a modified wristwatch rocket launcher on November 9. Check out the song below!

This Empire Doesn't Like Being Climbed

Clearly, King Kong picked the wrong building to climb upon with beautiful kidnapped ingénues for a dramatic battle with planes. (Which he obviously didn't survive, but just go with it, anyway.)

This symbol of an Empire isn't here to tell him that he's his father, but it is here to put him in line the same fatherly way as Vader.

This symbolic skyscraper is certainly not going to share the New York skyline with a smelly smitten simian.

Spider-Man Is Bitter

Having to sit back and watch how far the Avengers movies have come both creatively and financially, Spider-Man is growing increasingly jealous of being left out of mix due to studio politics.

It's especially going to hit home when Ant-Man is released and he's forced to watch a third-tier Marvel insect-themed hero grab the spotlight and work his way into the mega-team that everyone loves.

Shattered iPhone Gets Obscene

Perhaps knowing that its time had finally passed, this old iPhone decided to display some miniature metaphorical art showing what happens when two men cross swords.

Indeed, the results were shattering.

You Won't Need A Golden Ticket Here

Unlike that other Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory, this one isn't a wonderland of colorful backgrounds and chocolate lakes where children are whisked away by Oompa Loompas for breaking the rules.

Rather, it's one where children are given drugs to see colorful backgrounds, thrown in lakes made from their own chocolate, and are whisked away by creepy European guys with unibrows for breaking profit.

The Lone Ranger: First Trailer Rides In

The upcoming reboot of the most venerable of western franchises, The Lone Ranger has galloped its way to the Internet.

Of course, this isn't your father or grandfather's Lone Ranger, which started as a radio drama in 1933 that spawned the iconic 1950's television show.

How will it resonate with modern audiences? Well, with the usual: Explosions, sliding derailed trains, filthy prostitutes, and evil robber barons who want to conquer the west. You know, the usual stuff.

There come a time, kemosabe, when good men must check out the trailer below.

This Might Be A Knockoff

This Might Be A Knockoff

Who could forget the funny, yet heart-wrenching moments provided to us from Pixar's Space Boys 3?

Despite having to overlook the gorilla arms of this apparent non-Steve Miller space cowboy, the film was able to resonate with audiences of all ages and this totally legit doll reflects just that.
