The Screen Junkies have carved themselves a pretty cool little niche in the entertainment industry. The Honest Trailers have gotten so much attention that the people making the films are trying to “Honest-Trailer-proof” their movies. The Russo Brothers talked about that when they did a commentary on the Honest Trailer for Captain America: Winter Solder. When it was Deadpool’s turn to get one, Ryan Reynolds actually participated in it. You know you’ve moved up when one of the highest grossing R-rated films of all time sends their star to help with picking on the movie.
This year at Comic-Con, the writers behind the Honest Trailers sat down with Deadpool director Tim Miller, the voice of Colossus Stefan Kapicic and Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld in front of a live audience to do a 20 minutes commentary on the Honest Trailer. They discuss the original Deadpool appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the leaking of the initial test footage that got the movie made and how the film “borrowed” from Screen Junkies for their opening credits. Miller also reminds us that he’s not coming back for Deadpool 2.
The show was 21 and over, and it’s definitely got swearing in it. So don’t watch this at work with the sound cranked up.
