From the Website/YouTube channel ''WebVideo/ScreenJunkies'', [[TakeThatMe who struggle hard to make their]] [[ToughActToFollow other videos as popular as these]], comes a series that imagines what movie trailers would say if they were truthful, [[MundaneMadeAwesome yet still narrated with an epic]] Creator/DonLaFontaine-esque voice. ''JAZZERSIZE''. [[DistractedByMyOwnSexy Sorry, just had to say it]].

They'll describe movies with such BrutalHonesty that you wouldn't even want to watch it if you saw this trailer in theaters. Key targets will be excessive {{Plot Hole}}s, strange characterization, obvious ProductPlacement, ''more'' plot holes, SpecialEffectsFailure, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the actors' stupid faces]]. Ah, but who are they kidding, [[AffectionateParody often times they still love these movies.]]

Starring [[https://twitter.com/secretsaucetv Saucy Director]], the writer of ''Ladies of Rap'', [[https://twitter.com/polyphemus Cyclops]], and the only one you've ever heard of: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lm6ztRTdcdY Epic Voice Guy]]. [[LegacyCharacter And]] [[https://twitter.com/gannonnickell Epic Voice Guy Sr]]. [[SincerityMode We wish him the very best.]]

Now '''that's''' ProductPlacement."
** Also in ''Series/GameOfThrones'', whether you're [[spoiler:Creator/SeanBean, Sean Bean's wife, Sean Bean's best friend, Sean Bean's son, Sean Bean's daughter-in-law, Sean Bean's family dogs, or Sean Bean's unborn grandkid.]]
-->'''Narrator:''' All men must die...who are in anyway close to [[spoiler:Sean Bean!]]
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking:
** ''Avatar'' takes us to a futuristic world of spaceships, mech warriors, and... really crappy wheelchairs?
** When doing the casting list in ''Inception'', the cast list ends with Cobb's dreidel.
** In ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'', their description of Raoul Silva: "An antagonist with a plan so complex, he ''wants'' to get caught, but makes it nearly impossible to find him; knows months ahead of time the exact place to plant explosives during a chase he didn't even know was going to happen; and.... makes Bond gay."
** Also from ''Skyfall'', "When Bond returns to the high stakes world of espionage, he is faced with: word association ''[Bond taking his WordAssociationTest]'', office politics ''[Gareth Mallory talks to M]'', art theory ''[Bond and Q looking at a painting]'', JudiDench frowning; [[OverlyLongGag a lot]] (''cue every single close-up shot from the film of M with a frowny face''), and absurdly long landscape shots."
** "[[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk He discovered the Lost Ark]]. [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom He conquered a Temple of Doom.]] [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade He defeated an Army of Evil.]] And now.... [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull he's looking at a gopher]]."
** The ''Lord of the Rings'' trailer features a montage of people saying each other's really complicated names finishing with... [[AerithAndBob Sam]].
** In ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', "watch as Wolverine's centuries of war are glossed over in one montage, to instead make time for things no one wants to see Wolverine do: go on dates ''[shows shot of Logan caressing Kayla Silverfox]'', chop wood ''[Logan cutting a tree down with a chainsaw]'', get stuck in traffic ''[Logan and Kayla's truck coming up on two stopped cars, and Logan laying on the horn]'', and fumbling around in the bathroom."
** If you watch ''Les Miserables'', in their words, you will:
-->''Experience over two-and-a-half hours of CGI crane shots''\\
''And extreme close-ups''\\
''And the death of RussellCrowe's acting ability.''
** The ''Harry Potter'' trailer: "Relive the excitement of acclaimed British thespians yelling nonsense, battles that would have been way cooler with lightsabers or if they just moved around a little, and {{Rupert Grint}}'s dumb face."
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The Narrator's rant at the end of the ''After Earth'' trailer includes, among other complaints, yelling about the eagle that dies from the nightly cold despite natural selection meaning that should have rendered its species extinct by now.
-->'''Narrator''': It hasn't figured out how to live in the cold over the last thousand years of being an eagle?!
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: In ''Fast Five'', "refuel and ride along while these rebels break every law in the book: of physics, gravity, weight differential, and friction."
* AsHimself: What they see Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio in the ''Film/TheWolfOfWallStreet'' as.
-->'''Narrator''': Leonardo Di[[SoundEffectBleep f***ing]]Caprio stars as a f***ing young hot rich guy who hangs out on f***ing yachts and has sex with f***ing models. Basically Leonardo [=DiCaprio=].
* AudienceParticipation: Viewers' requests for films are featured before each video. And viewers can leave comments with phrases for the narrator to say in his awesome voice.
* AudienceSurrogate: In the ''Film/TheHungerGamesCatchingFire'' trailer, the narrator introduces Katniss as "A Totally Average Down-to-Earth Girl... Just Like You!"
* AsianSpeekeeEngrish / JapaneseRanguage:
** In reference to the "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/subcultures/inception Leo Squint]]" meme, they introduce ''Inception'''s star as "[[Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio Reonardo DiCaprio]]".
** Creator/KenWatanabe's accent makes it really difficult for them to understand exposition from him.
* AwardSnub[[invoked]]: The trailer for ''Film/TheWolfOfWallStreet'' points out Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio's inability to win an Oscar several times, complete with a montage that lists everyone and everything that [[TakeThat somehow managed to win an Oscar before Leo]].
--> '''Narrator''': And... Leonardo [=NoOscaro=]. Which is crazy when you think about all the other people who have Oscars, like... Music/ThreeSixMafia, UsefulNotes/AlGore, [[Film/JerryMaguire Cuba Gooding Jr.]], Dean Pelton from ''Series/{{Community}}''... \\
([[LongList goes on for a long while, before culminating with...]])\\
'''Narrator''': ... and the movie, ''Film/{{Crash}}''\\
'''Leonard [=DiCaprio=]''': Goddammit!
* AwesomeButImpractical: They poke fun at ''Film/PacificRim'' for the weapons on the Jaegers.
-->'''Narrator''': [Gipsy Danger] comes equipped with: ineffective elbow rockets, ''painfully'' slow plasma cannons, and an incredibly powerful sword they forgot they had until about two-thirds of the way through the movie.
* BackHandedCompliment: The ''Spider-Man Trilogy'' is compared to ''The Godfather Trilogy''... in that the first two are great and the third one sucks.
* BadBadActing: ''Film/TheLastAirbender'' includes "unknown child actors who are bad even by child actor standards."
-->'''Narrator''': (''After a clip of Katara's and Sokka's actors performing badly'') Ugh, hope these kids stayed in school.
* BaitAndSwitchComparison: "[[Film/BatmanAndRobin In a world full of crime]], ''[shows montage of Mr. Freeze clips]'' one man is determined to kill Franchise/{{Batman}} once and for all. His name... is director Creator/JoelSchumacher.
** "EwanMcGregor is forced to ''[shows montage of Obi-Wan Kenobi in scenes with CGI aliens]'' try and act alongside lifeless and emotionless computer characters like HaydenChristensen."
* [[invoked]]BestKnownForTheFanservice: ''Titanic'''s rerelease allows a new generation to "remember the excitement of PG-13 boobs, now in James Cameron-approved 3D."

** [[Creator/ScarlettJohansson Black Widow]] is only once mentioned as "Black Widow" (in the "not starring" part of the Iron Man 3 trailer), otherwise she is only known for the fanservice

-->'''The Avengers trailer''': Leather BEWBS

* BestialityIsDepraved: ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'''s "other romantic duet" starts with:
-->I'm kinda turned on by reindeer...
* BiTheWay: The narrator, who gets easily distracted by fanservice from both sexes.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: In the ''{{Literature/Divergent}}'' trailer, the Narrator stops during the intro and we see him in the recording booth, insisting that they've already done the trailer for this on ''Film/TheHungerGames''. It happens again at the end before "Starring..."
* BrokenAesop: The ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' trailer points out how the "be your own independent woman" aesop rings a bit hollow when Alice declares her intent to ScrewDestiny only to follow it anyway.
--> '''Narrator''': ... Girl Power?
* BrutalHonesty: The style in which the trailers are narrated.
* BulletTime: In the ''Film/ThreeHundred'' trailer, they note the movie's overuse of dramatic falling stuff, Instagram filters, and suuuuuperr '''slooooooooooowwwwwwww mooooooooooooooooootttttiiiiiiiiiooooooooonnnn'''.
* CallBack:
** In ''The Dark Knight Rises'' video, they announce that it stars the cast of ''Inception''. In the ''Inception'' video, they announce that it stars the cast of ''The Dark Knight Rises''. They also call back to their discontent with ''Rises'' by introducing ''Inception'' with "From [[Creator/ChristopherNolan the director]] of two good Batman movies comes a film that will obliterate your eardrums with [[PreviewsPulse deafening horn noises]]." '''''[[http://inception.davepedu.com BWOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNGGGG]]'''''
** In their review for ''Inception'' they showed the video getting flooded for requests for them to review it. This happens ''again'' for both the ''Harry Potter'' series and ''The Matrix''. And yet ''again'' for ''Dragonball: Evolution.''
** The ''Film/PacificRim'' speech ends up being a callback to the ''Independence Day'' one, complete with the best movie extra saluting. Hell yeah!
** ''Film/TheHungerGamesCatchingFire'' references Gale being a better match for Katniss again instead of Peeta.
** ''TheLionKing'' makes several references to the ''Frozen'' trailer, even doing another [[DoYouWantToCopulate Pork Song.]]
* CaliforniaDoubling: Averted by ''Series/BreakingBad'' where you "journey to scenic New Mexico, because state tax laws make it cheaper to shoot there than Los Angeles."
* TheCameo: [[spoiler:Creator/RedLetterMedia in ''The Dark Knight Rises'']] comes to pick apart every plot holes.
** For ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast Five]]'', the guy from ''WebVideo/CinemaSins'' shows up at the end to nitpick, [[spoiler:and is promptly interrupted by the voice guy who starts pointing out [[FunetikAksent bewbs]]]].
** The favor's returned when the ''Honest Trailers'' voiceover turns up at the end of the ''Cinema Sins'' video for ''Film/SupermanReturns''.
** The guys at ''[[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged Team Four Star]]'' help out on their video on ''Film/DragonballEvolution,'' in-character from their roles in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged''.
* CanonDiscontinuity: The 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot is "the cool new franchise that used time travel gobbledygook to throw away 50 years of canon. But who cares, 'cause ''Star Trek'' is awesome again!"
* CaptionHumor / FunWithSubtitles: While most times they just transcribe the narration, at times the captions do extra jokes.
* CelebrityParadox: When noting that Cap's list in ''The Winter Soldier'' claims he plans to watch ''Star Wars'', the Narrator muses that seeing the physical similarity between [[Creator/SamuelLJackson Nick Fury and Mace Windu]] probably blew his mind.
* ChewBubblegum: Or "[[RougeAnglesOfSatin chem]] bubblegum", as the case may be.
* ChronicallyKilledActor: ''The Lord of the Rings'' is a trilogy "where every main character faces constant mortal danger.... but only SeanBean dies. [[SarcasmMode Gee, haven't seen that before]]." ''[[spoiler:Cue montage of every scene of every movie that Bean dies in.]]''
* [[invoked]]ClicheStorm:
** ''World War Z'''s "Starring" list-off instead lists cliches the movie utilizes, including [[MyCarHatesMe dead car batteries]], [[BlackoutBasement flickering lights]], [[JitterCam shaky cam]], [[JumpScare jump scares]], zombies banging on doors, [[IllGirl a kid with asthma]], [[SoMuchForStealth accidental noises]], and [[PreviewsPulse obligatory Inception BWAAS]].
** ''Breaking Bad'' has a "Starring" list-off that lists the clichés present throughout the series, like [[FoodPorn Breakfast]], [[POVCam POV Shots]], [[TastesLikePurple the color Purple]], [[DeadMansChest Corpse Barrels]], [[BaldOfEvil Bald Guys]], {{Foreshadowing}}, [[HollywoodMagnetism Magnets]], rocks[[note]]'''Hank:''' They're minerals[[/note]] ("er, [[InsistentTerminology minerals]]"), [[RageQuit Roof Pizza]], [[ActorAllusion half of]] Series/MrShow, [[Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle Malcolm]]'s [[Creator/BryanCranston dad]], [[RetroactiveRecognition and the world's greatest]] ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' contestant.
** ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' lists all of the movie's MichaelBay-isms, including [[OrbitalShot spinning camera]], the military, low angle shots of people getting out of cars, glistening face sweat, [[FanserviceExtra hot babe extras]], a slow motion helicopters, and BOOMS. Cue a montage of every fireball explosion in the movie accompanied by "The Stars and Stripes Forever", then adds [[Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy Brick]] [[Creator/SteveCarell Tamland]] shouting "LOUD NOISES!!".
** ''Film/GreenLantern'' has a lot of clichés from superhero movies, including: [[GoneHorriblyWrong a science experiment gone wrong]], [[ComesGreatResponsibility the themes of power and responsibility]], [[TrainingMontage a rushed training montage]], [[DamselInDistress a kidnapped love-interest]], and [[DeathByOriginStory a traumatic early death of a father figure]].
* ClusterBleepBomb: Since ''Film/TheWolfOfWallStreet'' has an average of 3.6 f-words per minute, its trailer has to bleep them out of nearly every clip. Then the Narrator joins in as well and punctuates every sentence with "[[SoundEffectBleep f***ing]]".
* ClusterFBomb: The Screen Junkies supercut video for "Just the F-Words" in ''Film/TheWolfOfWallStreet''[[spoiler:...is a double-subversion. The supercut shows off perfectly innocuous words that happen to start with the letter 'F', before concluding with one actual F-bomb.]]
* ComplexityAddiction: Meet [[Film/{{Thor}} Loki]], Thor's brother, who will not stop until he betrays his adoptive father with the help of his real father, in order to kill his real father... to impress his adoptive father? Gee, that makes even less sense than his plan in The Avengers.
* ContrivedCoincidence: In ''Film/WorldWarZ'', "Watch Creator/BradPitt survive an [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat un-survivable apocalypse]] thanks to a constant stream of lifesaving coincidences like: never hitting traffic in the middle of mass hysteria; finding an RV with the keys and a loaded gun inside; this friendly mugger showing him where to find medicine; this friendly Mexican family taking him in, no questions asked; these fast zombies who slow down as soon as they are about to catch him; this small child [[BoomHeadshot headshotting]] a zombie on top of him; this plane dropping a ladder down to save him at takeoff; this Israeli soldier killing a zombie about to eat him; surviving this car crash; surviving this plane crash; surviving a spike through his stomach; and shooting up with a randomly picked virus that happens to be curable while also serving as zombie camouflage."
* CoolButStupid: The Narrator's opinion of ''Film/PacificRim''. He dubs it "either ''The Most Awesome Dumb Movie Ever Made'' or ''The Dumbest Awesome Movie Ever Made''."
-->'''Narrator''': Let's be honest, that movie was super dumb. But I still cannot wait for the sequel!
* CreatorBacklash: Mentioned InUniverse in ''Film/{{Godzilla1998}}'', which discusses Toho's reaction to the film by featuring the TakeThat scenes from ''Film/GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack'' and ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars''.
* CrossOver: ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' features a ''WebAnimation/HowItShouldHaveEnded'' skit, where Spock Prime tells his past self everything he needs to know to deal quickly and efficiently with a whole lot of the problems-of-the-week from the TV series and the next several movies. HISHE returns the favor by featuring the Narrator in ''their'' episode of ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N15J4ibej8 How Star Trek Into Darkness Should Have Ended]]''.
* ChirpingCrickets: This sound effect is used in the ''Film/StarTrek'' trailer to underscore how boring the idea of Nero drifting around in space for 25 years instead of just warning his planet of their impending demise is.
** Also when [[Film/TheLastAirbender Aang]] is Waterbending... or rather, "doing his greenbelt Karate demonstration."

* [[invoked]]DamselScrappy: The Narrator's opinion of Mary Jane of the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy''.
-->'''Narrator''': Meet Mary Jane, the love of Peter's life and the worst girlfriend ever. Grow to hate her snaggle-toothed face as she cheats on her boyfriend with Spider-Man, cheats on her fiance with Peter Parker, and cheats on Peter Parker with his best friend. You'll wonder why anyone bothers to save her over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The narrator goes out of his way to point out how this does ''not'' work in ''Film/ManOfSteel''.
-->'''Narrator''': So if you loved the Christopher Reever Superman movies, but wished they made them less hopeful, killed countless civilians, visualized our worst fears of urban terrorism and had Superman overcome his first villain by murdering him with his bare hands, DC has made the reboot for you psycho!
* DeathGlare: The narrator cowers at one from Katniss in ''Film/TheHungerGamesCatchingFire'', after saying that all books must now be stretched into as many films as possible.
-->'''Narrator:''' Okay, we'll see the sequels! Please don't hurt us!
* DeathMontage: Sean Bean gets one during the ''Lord of the Rings'' trailer.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Warwick Davis's name is repeated four times in the casting list for ''Harry Potter''.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: ''Series/BreakingBad'', "the show so powerful [[ArchiveBinge you binge-watch it on Netflix]], so all-consuming [[IDoNotLikeGreenEggsAndHam you push it on your friends even if they don't watch TV]], and so addicting [[MotorMouth you can't shut up about it]]..."
-->'''Narrator''': [[DontExplainTheJoke It's basically like drugs]].
* DistractedByTheSexy: All over the place in ''Avatar''. "Meet Neytiri, but most importantly, meet her side bluebs."
-->'''Narrator''': As you're force-fed the most obvious message ever, it will leave you wondering, "Did I see her nipple?"
* DullSurprise: Their largest criticism of the actors of ''Twilight'', especially Creator/KristenStewart.
-->'''Narrator''': Is every director afraid of telling her to close her mouth?
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Their trailer for ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' is spoken with much more enthusiasm than we'd see later.
* EarWorm[[invoked]]:
** They criticize the song "My Heart Will Go On" in ''Titanic'', that "stupid f***ing song that briefly tricked you into thinking CelineDion was hot."
-->Celine Dion: Near... Far... whereeever you are...
-->Narrator: Good luck getting ''that'' out of your head!
** ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'s'' "Let It Go", or as they sung it "Get it ouuut, get it ouuut, get this song out of my head!"
* EndingFatigue[[invoked]]: {{Parodied|Trope}} at the end of their ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' trailer, which [[OverlyLongGag ends three times]].
** Second ending: "A film that took so much of Peter Jackson's life, he didn't want it to end, prompting ''five'' completely separate endings that go on and on forever, making it really hard to hold in your pee."
** Third ending: "A film with such fake emotional states, Gandalf will sacrifice himself for his friends, only to [[UnexplainedRecovery somehow come back to life]], making it not really a sacrifice. And a story where the protagonists can't win their own battles without [[DeusExMachina convenient]] ghost armies, living trees, and magical eagles.
-->'''Narrator:''' Ugh, I can't believe we're only halfway through with this Peter Jackson nerdgasm.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim / StupidSexyFlanders: The narrator ''really'' wants [[Film/TheHungerGames Katniss to choose Gale instead of Peeta]].
-->'''Narrator''': I mean, [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday I'm not gay]], but I would totally [[CensoredForComedy s*** Gale's d***!]]
* [[invoked]]FanDumb: {{Lampshaded|Trope}} before their ''Film/{{Inception}}'' video. [[spoiler:The screen floods with hundreds of comments begging for ''Inception'''s trailer.]]
-->"Ugh, we get it already."
** It happens again for their ''Film/HarryPotter'' and ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' trailers! And then AGAIN for ''Film/DragonballEvolution'', it being the most requested film of the entire series. [[SubvertedTrope But this time, they were being nice to the fans about it, since it was a Christmas present to them.]]
* FailedASpotCheck:
** In ''The Dark Knight Rises'', the narrator makes note that Bruce Wayne apparently "never conducts background checks on his maids or his board members."
** In ''Series/BreakingBad'', Hank Schrader is Walter White's "brother-in-law cop [[CannotTellAJoke who's terrible at telling jokes]], and even worse at recognizing that his own family is running a crystal meth empire."
* [[invoked]]FakeNationality: Pointed out in ''XMenOriginsWolverine'', "journey to 1970s Canada, [[AnachronismStew where everyone dresses like it's 2009]], and ''[[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent no one]]'' [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent has a Canadian accent]]."
* FemaleGaze: Referring to Lewis who "can't resist male nudity" in ''Film/RoboCop1987'': "Baaawllz!"
* FreudianSlip: In the ''Film/TopGun'' trailer, the narrator tries to impersonate an easily impressionable consumer of military propaganda after mentioning all the things "you love about present day America", but his attempt doesn't go as smoothly as he'd hoped.
--> '''Narrator:''' Hell yeah! Let's go kiss some dudes! I mean, kiss some ass! I, I mean, buy some planes! Yeah, that's what I meant.
* FridgeLogic: [[invoked]] Often.
** "[[Film/TheDarkKnight Wait, why didn't they just blame the Joker for all these deaths?]] He's been killing people for the entire movie!"
** "[[Film/{{Inception}} If Cobb couldn't enter the country, couldn't Michael Caine just fly the kids out to him?]] Oh, whatever."
** "So wait, [[Film/TheNotebook he wrote her hundreds of letters]] but couldn't just call her once?"
** ''Harry Potter'': "If magic is supposed to be secret, why is there a doorway in the most highly-trafficked subway station in London? Why are all the bad boys in one house? Why don't they just expel them? And why isn't it disturbing that this rat on Ron's lap is actually [[spoiler:a grown man]]?"
** And in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' video, [[spoiler:Creator/RedLetterMedia appears to pick apart its plot holes just like they did with ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'']].
* FiveManBand: In ''Fast Five'', "to pull off one last job, Dom will have to gather everyone's favorite heist movie stereotypes: [[TheAce The hunky mastermind]], [[TheSmartGuy the nerd]], the Creator/BernieMac, [[FunnyForeigner the guy who can't speak English]], and [[BigEater the guy who's constantly snacking]].
* FollowTheLeader: ''World War Z'' arrives "InAWorld where zombies have already infected every facet of pop culture, comes... another zombie movie. But this time... it's got Creator/BradPitt!"

* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial "I mean I'm not gay]], [[IfItsYouItsOkay but I'd totally suck Gale's dick."]]
* HeAlsoDid: {{Invoked|Trope}} in the trailer for ''Man of Steel'', where Creator/ZachSnyder is introduced as "The guy who directed ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheGuardiansTheOwlsOfGaHoole''" as opposed to his more famous films like ''300'' or ''{{Film/Watchmen}}''.
* HeroAntagonist: In the ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' trailer, Elsa leads the list of people Anna teams up with to save the day ''and'' the list of villains Anna must defeat in her journey.

* HollywoodHistory: "[[UsefulNotes/RMSTitanic Based on the tragedy]] that inspired thousands of heartbreaking true stories comes [[Film/{{Titanic}} this fake one]]."
* HollywoodNerd: "[[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan Peter Parker]] was just an attractive, intelligent, likable, athletic, well-dressed teenage loser."
* HowIsThatEvenPossible: The narrator's comment about Batman's cell phone surveillance system in ''The Dark Knight'', which downloads an infinite amount of data that's instantly transmitted wirelessly to Batman's eyes. "Hhmph, how is that possible? It takes me five minutes to download ''VideoGame/AngryBirds''."
* HoYay: [[invoked]]
** ''The Lord of the Rings'' has so much manly compassion that you'll think you're watching ''[[Film/BrokebackMountain Brokeback]] [[IncrediblyLamePun Mount Doom]]''.
** The narrator's opinion of the friendship in ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' between Morpheus and Neo.
** The ''Film/TopGun'' trailer mentions how much the movie "cranks up the homosexual undertones, as every other dude in the movie tries to make hot steamy love to each other". Cue several lines and scenes from the film that could be interpreted as such.
** ''Disney/TheLionKing'' trailer calls Timon and Pumbaa a same-sex couple. "[[NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat Not that there's a problem with that...]]"
** The ''Film/XMen'' trailer refers to several of the handsome young fellows there as "[[TheTwink Twiiinks!]]"
* HypocriticalHumor:
** In ''Film/TheNotebook'', "when Allie and Noah find each other, he'll criticize her for being a pushover, and then constantly tell her what to do. And she will abandon him on numerous occasions."
-->'''Narrator:''' Together, they'll be [[WillTheyOrWontThey so indecisive]], you'll wonder why they're even trying.
** ''Film/PacificRim'' comes from "a completely original sci-fi universe that doesn't rely on any preexisting franchise, as long as you don't count ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', Ultraman, ''PowerRangers'', ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, [[Film/RealSteel that stupid Hugh Jackman robot boxing movie]], or every Anime ever made."
** ''GrandTheftAutoV'':
-->'''Narrator:''' From Rockstar Games, the company that glorifies [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking bullying... murder... and ping pong]] comes the game old people claim is turning us into violent sociopaths... WHICH IS '''NOT''' TRUE, AND I'll '''F***ING KILL YOU''' IF YOU SAY ANY DIFFERENT!!!
* IdenticalStranger: Characters from one film are often credited as similar characters from another film.
** In ''Inception'', Creator/KenWatanabe as "Creator/GeorgeTakei".
** [[Film/{{Prometheus}} The Engineer]] as "[[Film/{{Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan]]".

** The ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' trailer has Alicia Silverstone as "90's Creator/EmmaStone"
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: "To get back his children, [[Film/{{Inception}} Cobb]]'s team will have to fight anonymous dream soldiers who have no idea how to hit anything with an automatic weapon, or duck."
* InNameOnly: In ''Film/WorldWarZ'', "get ready for the big screen adaptation of [[Literature/WorldWarZ the best-selling novel]] that's got everything you loved about... the title, and [absolutely] nothing else." Later on in the video, a list scrolls by of all the book's awesome moments that were left out of the film.
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: In ''Series/BreakingBad'', meet chemistry teacher Walter White. "He's got the kind of cancer that makes you cough '''a lot'''." ''[Cue an [[OverlyLongGag Overly Long montage]] of every instance where Walter White explodes in a coughing fit]''
* InAWorld: Most trailers start with variants of this, along with describing the source book or director.
** For instance, ''Avatar'' starts with "In a world created by fat computer programmers, comes a film so epic it increased ticket prices three whole dollars."
** ''World War Z'' arrives "In a world where zombies have already infected [[BaitAndSwitchComment every facet of pop culture]]..."
* InfantImmortality: In ''Jurassic Park'', relive the "electrifying excitement of watching a child in constant peril, who cannot die."
* IntercourseWithYou:
** ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'''s honest trailer has this "romantic duet" in it:
-->We are about to pooooooork
-->Totally gonna pooooooork
** ''Disney/TheLionKing'''s honest trailer has this "slow jam" in it:
-->We are going to pork tonight
-->Yeah, we are totally gonna pooooooork
-->It was nice to be childhood friends with ya,
-->But now it's time to pooooooork
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: At the end of the ''Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace'' trailer, from the 1980s, the narrator decides at least it isn't a Marvel film, because (showing images from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Spider-Man_(TV_series) The Amazing Spider-Man TV series of 1977-1979]]) they'll never figure out how to make movies. [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Right?]]
* JigsawPuzzlePlot: A third of the ''Avatar'' trailer is trying to summarize the premise but having to speed up the video to get through all of it.
* JitterCam: ''The Hunger Games'' takes place in "a dystopian future, where the rich dress like second rate {{Lady Gaga}}s in cities left over from ''ThePhantomMenace'', while the poor struggle for survival in unnecessary shaky-cam, but can still somehow afford futuristic [[BuffySpeak projection thingies]]."
* JustKeepDriving / SeenItAll: In ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'', the opening action scene is described as being so action-packed, you'll forget to ask yourself, "Why didn't the conductor stop this train when its entire back carriage '''was ripped off'''? And why aren't these people scared?"
* KissingCousins: TheStinger of ''Disney/TheLionKing'' has the narrator realize something in horror about [[OfficialCouple Simba and Nala]]:
--> '''Narrator:''' Wait, if Mufasa[[note]]Simba's dad[[/note]] and Scar[[note]]Mufasa's brother[[/note]] are the only male lions in the pride, then Nala's dad is probably... oh no.
* LargeHam: The announcer.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The narrator eventually gives up trying to name, or even remember, the characters in ''Series/GameOfThrones''.
-->"Starring...the ten characters whose names you actually remember [Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Robb Stark, Eddard Stark, Tyrion Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Catelyn Stark, Joffrey Baratheon, Ayra Stark]! And all these other characters whose names you actually don't remember [Jojen and Meera Reed, Yara Greyjoy, Gendry, Giantsbane and Orell]! Like: The Sneaky Guy [Littlefinger]; The Sneaky Bald Guy [Varys]; Carl Drago [Khal Drogo]; Those [[spoiler:Gay]] Dudes [Ser Loras Tyrell and Renly Baratheon]; Lord Friend Zone [Ser Jorah Mormont]; Grumpy Old Dad [Tywin Lannister]; The Same Person?

[Barristan Selmy]."
* LongList:
** In ''Film/WorldWarZ'', "meet Gerry Lane. He's just your average, everyday super-attractive, scarf-wearing, Spanish-speaking, airplane piloting, sharp-shooting, skull-bashing, armor-crafting, arm-chopping, prisoner-interrogating, surgery-doing, slo-mo vision-having, antidote-making, eagle-eyed stay-at-home dad."
** The Starring section for ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' has the narrator giving nicknames for all the Gen I Pokemon, including [[SecretCharacter Mew]] and [[TheMissingno Missingno]].

* MaleGaze: As they introduce Creator/AnneHathaway [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises as Catwoman]], the shot zooms in to her butt, while the narrator calls her "[[Film/ThePrincessDiaries The Prince-ASS Diaries]]".
** In ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', it's pointed out that Carol Marcus [shown wearing only her underwear] is only there [[{{Fanservice}} for one reason]]... then the camera zooms in on her cleavage.
-->'''Narrator''': Make that two reasons.
** In ''Franchise/TheMatrix'', Monica Belucci is credited as "BEWBS".
* ManipulativeEditing: They're not always so honest and sometimes will adjust elements of shots. For instance, when they complain that first half hour of ''Film/TheAvengers'' is surprisingly boring, they use a seeming casual shot of [[ComicBook/BlackWidow Natasha Romanoff]], [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]], and [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] on a quiet dock, when in the actual film the audio in the background is of [[spoiler:''the Helicarrier taking flight'']].
-->'''Narrator''': [[Film/{{Avatar}} This December]], prepare for three hours of eyeball twitches.
* MediumShiftGag: ''Superman IV'' and ''Top Gun'' are made to look like they were taped on an old video cassette, and ''Series/BreakingBad'' is formatted in the style of a television preview.
* [[invoked]]MemeAcknowledgment: Given [[http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/style-blog/wp/2013/02/25/oscars-2013-life-of-pies-claudio-miranda-wizard-hair-trend/ lots of jokes were made about long-haired winners at the 2013 Oscars]], Lucius Malfoy's actor is credited as "[[http://www.crushable.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/MALFOY-4.png Claudio Miranda]]".
** "Leo Squint" was acknowledged in the ''Inception'' trailer, as seen in the JapaneseRanguage entry.
** The quotes narrated at the end of each vid usually are popular memes.
* MisaimedMarketing:[[invoked]] As the opening of the ''Film/TheHungerGamesCatchingFire'' trailer points out "From [[Creator/LionsGate the company]] that owns a monopoly on Literature/{{t|wilight}}eenage [[Film/TheHungerGames girl]] [[Literature/{{Divergent}} fantasies]], comes the only film about starving children... with its own delicious sandwich tie-in! Subway. Be bold. Eat fresh."
* {{Mr|Fanservice}}. and MsFanservice:
** "[[Film/{{Titanic}} Jack]] is an unrealistically sexy peasant. And Rose is a first class [[TroubledButCute suicidal pair of boobs]]."
** "Meet Neytiri, but more importantly, meet her {{side|boob}} [[{{Portmanteau}} bluebs]]."
** [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Catwoman]] [[Creator/AnneHathaway doesn't escape their oogles either]]. And Black Widow is referred to as "Leather Boobs", mocking her tight-fitting leather SpyCatsuit.
** "[[Film/JurassicPark And re-witness]] ''the [[Creator/JeffGoldblum GOLDBLUM]].''" [Steamy music plays over shots of Malcolm lounging around with his shirt ripped open.]
** Creator/EmmaWatson is credited as "your first erection" while playing [[HarryPotter Hermione]].
** In ''Man of Steel'', the narrator first calls out Henry Cavill for [[DullSurprise his uninteresting acting]], but then sees him shirtless and forgoes his criticisms.
-->'''Narrator''': My god, what a beefcake.
** "I mean, I'm not gay, but I would totally s*** [[HungerGames Gale's]] d***!"
** Mystique: "Wait, is she naked? She's totally naked, right? Man, somebody got to paint that on her BEWBS, to make them, you know, BLEWBS... [{{Beat}}] I am so lonely."
* MonochromeCasting: ''The Lord of the Rings'' "will strive to prove that people of all walks of life can work together, as long as they're all white (''Seriously'', even when they die, they come back whiter)."
* MrExposition: In ''Inception'', Arthur is "a sidekick whose only job is to explain the plot."
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Thanks to the narration. And at the end of the video, viewers can submit comments of quotes they'd like hear the narrator say in his awesome voice. They're often random things, like "poop fiddles".
** The ''[[OverlyLongGag STARES]]'' in ''Twilight'', which are put to epic music.[[note]]"[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPPzcXCCPeU Great Ambitions]]" from 0:24 to 0:49[[/note]]
** In ''Skyfall'', Bond uses the latest technological gadgets, which include a gun, a knife, a shotgun, an old-timey gun (a revolver), and a tracking device "larger than the one Bond used in the 60s'."
* MusicalEpisode: ''Film/LesMiserables2012'', the narrator lampshades how annoying it is that the characters convey things in song that would be done perfectly well with normal dialogue.
-->'''Narrator:''' Seriously, they sing ''everything''. So to hit that point even harder, we thought we'd sing the rest of the trailer. ''[And they do]''
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: The ''Film/GrownUps'' trailer describes the actors as "an AllStarCast of comedic actors... and Rob Schneider."
* NamesTheSame [[invoked]]: [[PlayedForLaughs Used for comedic effect]] in the honest trailer for {{Film/HomeAlone}}: [[Creator/ChrisColumbus the film's director Chris Columbus]] is credited as "the [[UsefulNotes/ChristopherColumbus Chris Columbus]] that didn't kill any Indians".
* NauseaFuel: Invoked in the honest trailer for ''{{Film/Gravity}}'', where the narrator watches the first-person shot of Ryan repeatedly spinning backwards early on in the film, and nearly barfs.
* NeverTrustATrailer: Based around subverting this marketing.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands:
** In ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', they criticize how Deadpool, "The merc with a mouth, gets his mouth removed, and trades his cool costume for eight minute abs, and magic eyeshadow. Oh, and he also gets a grab bag of random mutant powers that Deadpool never had."
-->'''Narrator:''' Are we ''sure'' Brett Ratner didn't direct this?
** In ''Superman IV'', "Stare in wide-eyed disbelief at these new, completely made-up powers like rebuilding the Great Wall of China with his eyes, lowering people with his mind, and [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace helping this woman breathe in outer space]]."
* NominalHero / DesignatedHero: The protagonists of ''Fast Five'' "will stop at nothing to take down a sort-of-ruthless drug lord, by destroying poor neighborhoods, destroying rich neighborhoods, killing twenty-two cops with a giant metal safe, and ultimately leaving Rio in way worse shape than when they found it."
* NoOSHACompliance: In the ''Harry Potter'' trailer, child endangerment is described as not being any big deal. ''[cue montage of various characters receiving horrifying injuries from magic spells or other accidents]''
-->'''Narrator:''' Seriously, how have they not shut this school down yet?
* NoPronunciationGuide: Sometimes the title of a film will deliberately be said incorrectly.
** ''Les Miserables'' causes particular trouble ("Les Miserabablebles", and later "Less Miserables").
** "''[[Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace Superman Eye-Vee]]''"
*** The same Roman numeral confusion occurs with "[[Film/AttackOfTheClones Star Wars Episode Eleven]]"
** Non-title example in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', where the narrator struggles mightily with Svartalfheim before moving on to the next world's name with apparent relief ("Sfar... Sfur... Sfortul... ASGARD!").
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: During several scenes of awkward silence in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', and ''Series/BreakingBad'', a caption will appear to point out that the scene is unedited by them.
* NotSoDifferent: From the ''Frozen'' trailer:
-->When disaster strikes, Anna joins forces with:\\
Her sister! (''shows Anna and Elsa'')\\
A merchant! (''shows Oaken'')\\
A hot guy! (''shows Kristoff'')\\
And a snowman (''shows Olaf'')\\
To defeat villains like:\\
Her sister! (''shows Elsa having a mental breakdown'')\\
A merchant! (''shows the Duke of Weselton'')\\
A hot guy! (''shows [[spoiler:Prince Hans]]'')\\
And a snowman! (''shows Marshmallow'')
* NotSoStoic: The narrator usually delivers all his lines in the same epic tone, but when he's talking about [[spoiler: the changes done to the Mandarin]] in ''Film/IronMan3'', he's clearly upset.
** And of course, there's his increasing anger that comes out in the ''AfterEarth'' review, culminating in a case of ScrewThisImOuttaHere.
** In the Honest Game Trailer for ''VideoGame/MarioKart'', the narrator freaks out when he gets hit by a blue shell.
-->''A weapon so incredibly evil that it seeks out the lead driver and - AW COME ON!!! I was right there! This happens every race! Stupid Nintendo! I was like in first the entire freakin' time!''
* NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat: In ''Disney/TheLionKing'' trailer, the narrator says these words immediately after mentioning "a child raised by a same sex couple" (flashes pics of Simba being raised by Timon and Pumbaa) as one of the things he's surprised got included in a G-Rated movie.
* OhCrap: In the ''AfterEarth'' trailer:
-->'''Narrator''': "From the director of... (M. Night Shyamalan's name appears on the screen) Oh God, not him again..."
* [[invoked]]OldShame: TheStinger for the ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' trailer is clips of the cast and director expressing their regret of the film.
* TheOneWith: They have one of these for each of the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' films:
** ''[[{{Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone}} The Sorcerer's Stone]]'': "The one that started it all!"
** ''[[{{Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets}} The Chamber of Secrets]]'': "[[{{Sequelitis}} The one everyone hates.]]"
** ''[[{{Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban}} The Prisoner of Azkaban]]'': "[[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel The one everyone loves!]]"
** ''[[{{Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire}} The Goblet Of Fire]]'': "The one with [[RobertPattinson Shovelface.]]"
** ''[[{{Film/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix}} The Order Of The Phoenix]]'': "The one with [[OfficialCouple the raging hormones.]]"
** ''[[{{Film/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince}} The Half-Blood Prince]]'': "The one where [[spoiler:[[ItWasHisSled Dumbledore dies.]]]] ([[LampshadeHanging Oh...spoiler alert.]])"
** ''[[{{Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows}} The Deathly Hallows Part 1]]'': "[[{{Filler}} The one you can skip.]]"
** ''[[{{Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows}} The Deathly Hallows Part 2]]'': "The one that [[TearJerker/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows made adults cry like little babies]]"
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: The ''Film/PacificRim'' trailer points out Englander Creator/CharlieHunnam's trouble.
-->'''Narrator''': Meet Raleigh Becket, a hotshot pilot struggling to maintain his American accent.
-->'''Raleigh''': You know, all these years of living in the past... never really ''thawt'' about the future.
* OhTheHumanity: The narrator is forced into this when "evil" Peter Parker goes dancing in the street.
* OvertOperative: In ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'', "Suit up with 007, the super-secret MI6 agent, who everyone knows by [[Film/JamesBond his real name]]." ''[cue every instance of a character addressing him as some variant of "James Bond"]''
** Which might fall a bit flat if you think about it, since every character in question who addresses him by his real name is someone who ''should'' know his real name- his coworkers, his bosses, the RogueAgent villain who hacked [=MI6=] to look at his file, someone Bond introduces himself to, and Bond himself. Also counts as RealityIsUnrealistic as RealLife spies actually ''do'' use their real names more often than not, because fake names are some of the easiest lies to expose or slip up on.
* [[invoked]]TheOtherDarrin:
** Appears at times. For instance, in ''Film/TheAvengers'', the Hulk is "Not [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk Edward Norton]]" ("[[Film/{{Hulk}} ALSO NOT ERIC BANA]]").
** In ''Film/IronMan2'', Don Cheadle/Rhodey is "Better Terrence Howard".
** TheNthDoctor: The Narrator of Honest Trailers.
* OverlyLongGag: One example is from the ''Lord of the Rings'' trailer, as "these unlikely heroes embark on [[SceneryPorn an eleven hour New Zealand tourism commercial]] rife with: walking..... roaming...... hiking..... [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment more walking]]...... and strolling.
** That trailer also [[EndingFatigue ends three times]].
** The ''[[HeldGaze STARES]]'' in ''Twilight''. Best of all, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpU5O_Uur_c they made a supercut]] of '''ALL''' the stares in the series. The video is just a little under ''half an hour''.
*** The ''Film/StarTrek'' trailer does this with ''[[LensFlare LENS FLARES]]'', and the same music.
** From Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger:
-->'''Narrator''': All to leave more time for... foreshadowing ''Film/TheAvengers'', introducing the plot device for... ''The Avengers'', unnecessarily freezing himself so he can be in... ''The Avengers'', and [[TheStinger an after-credits scene]] that is literally a trailer for... ''The Avengers''.
* OverusedRunningGag: The narrator cuts short the ''LENS FLARES'' montage from ''StarTrekIntoDarkness'', deciding the audience gets the point already.
* {{Padding}}[[invoked]]:
** From the ''Twilight: Breaking Dawn'' trailer: "Brace yourself for two movies so unnecessarily long that they include [[ProductPlacement five Volvo commercials]], two montages of the previous Twilight movies, four games of chess, and '''the [[PunctuatedForEmphasis MOST]]. [[HeldGaze STARES]]. [[UpToEleven EVER]]!'''"
** The trailer for ''Titanic'', "a film so bloated you can honestly just skip the first half hour (Don't worry, there's still, like, three hours left to go)."
** In ''Man of Steel'', the description of Krypton includes "way too many subplots".
** The trailer for ''Film/TheHobbitAnUnexpectedJourney'' lampshades the three hour run time of the movie in its own way.....the narrator at one point dozes off and yawns when he is suddenly roused from his nodding off at the mike.
* PaperThinDisguise: In ''Avatar'', "follow along with a team of scientists who blend in with the natives by wearing the Gap khaki collection."
* [[PigeonholedVoiceActor Pigeonholed Motion-Capture Actor]]: Their ''Lord of the Rings'' video lampshades how most of Creator/AndySerkis's post-Gollum roles [[Film/KingKong have been]] [[Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes solely motion]]-[[Film/TinTin capture ones]].
-->'''Narrator''': From the award winning visual effects team that launched the career of one man who must now [[SerkisFolk wear skintight Spandex and face dots]] [[UpToEleven for the rest of his life]]...
* PrecisionFStrike: Normally swearing is bleeped out, but a clear f-word is left at the end of ''The Dark Knight'' trailer.
-->'''Narrator''': Aw, who are we kidding, this movie is fucking awesome...
** There is one for the original ''Film/RoboCop1987'' trailer; it ''is'' bleeped out, but you can still clearly hear it.
--> Rated `R` for [=RoboCop=]. [[TakeThat Because that's how you make a f*cking RoboCop movie.]]
* PreviewsPulse: Pointed out in the trailers for ''Film/{{Inception}}'' and ''Film/WorldWarZ".
* ProductPlacement: ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' set records for ProductPlacement in real life. So for the Honest Trailer, instead of announcing the actual stars, the narrator announces these stars:
-->'''Narrator:''' Starring: Burger King, Panasonic, eBay, Cadillac, GMC, Music/TheStrokes, Pepto-Bismol, {{Xbox}}, ''Furbies?!'' Pontiac, Mountain Dew, Chevrolet, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Chevrolet]], [[AndStarring and introducing]], [[RuleOfThree Chevrolet]]."
** And the last ''Twilight'' movie is so bloated that the narrator says it contains the equivalent of five Volvo commercials.
** TheStinger for ''World War Z'''s trailer parodies the film's use of this.
-->'''Narrator''': Man, all the reshoots must have cost a fortune. How'd they afford to pay for that? (''scene of Brad Pitt drinking a Pepsi'') Man, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint that really makes me want a Coke]].
* ProtagonistJourneyToVillain: In ''Series/BreakingBad'', "[Walter White will] cook crystal meth [[JustifiedCriminal to pay for his expensive cancer treatment]], [[OnlyInItForTheMoney then to save money for his family]], [[ForTheEvulz and then just because]]...."
* PungeonMaster: The narrator says that in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy [[VillainTeamUp team up]], "even though their goals are completely incompatible, to make '''the most puns ever'''." ''[Cue montage of Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy making puns]''
** Also reflected in the starring bit, as for Mr. Freeze he's credited as "[[Film/TheRunningMan The Punning Man]], [[Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982 Coldman the Barbarian]], [[Film/KindergartenCop Kindergartern Ice Pop]], Franchise/{{Terminator}} Blue...."
* PunnyName: Actors' names are often punned when read. For instance, "[[MichaelCaine My Cocaine]]" for ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''.
** "[[Creator/NoomiRapace Noomi Rapeface]]" and "[[Creator/CharlizeTheron Charlie The Ron]]" for ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'':
** "[[Creator/HarrisonFord Harrison Bored]]", "[[ShiaLaBeouf Shit the Bed]]", and "[[CateBlanchett Cat Blanket]]" for ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull''.
** ''Film/TheNotebook'' has [[Creator/RachelMcAdams Rachel McAdamsApple]] while focusing on [[DontExplainTheJoke her Adam's Apple]].
** ''Harry Potter'' has [[Creator/GaryOldman Hairy Old Man]] and [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skypotter]].
** "[[Creator/IdrisElba Eye Dress Elbow]]", "[[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Lokimon]]", and "[[Creator/NataliePortman Portm]][[Series/{{Portlandia}} andia]]" from ''Film/{{Thor}}''.

* RaceLift: In ''Skyfall'', there's disbelief at the fact that Ms. Moneypenny's black. Credited as "Miss Moneypenny's black?!"
** The "race bending" of ''The Last Airbender'' is "advertised".
-->'''Narrator''': Watch as the ethnically diverse heroes you know and love are brought to life as generic white kids, and the ethnically diverse villains... stay ethnically diverse.
** Lawrence Fishburne as Perry White in ''Film/ManOfSteel'' is credited as "Perry Black".
* RageQuit: The narrator found ''Film/AfterEarth'' far too dumb and gave up before the cast reading.
* RagingStiffie: In ''The Lord of the Rings'', Creator/ElijahWood as Frodo is credited as "Morning Wood".
* [[invoked]]RecycledScript: The Spider-Man trilogy. Composed of:
##''Film/SpiderMan'', where Peter Parker struggles with his powers, breaks up with Mary Jane, and fights with a villain that ultimately kills himself;
##''Film/SpiderMan2'', where Peter Parker struggles with his powers, breaks up with Mary Jane, and fights with a villain that ultimately kills himself; and
##''Film/SpiderMan3'', where Peter Parker struggles with his powers, breaks up with Mary Jane, and fights with a villain that ultimately kills himself. "[[LampshadedTrope Wait, did they just make the same movie]] [[RuleOfThree 3 times in a row?]]."
** Skyfall's trailer lampoons how the hard drive Bond is after contains the identity of all NATO agents, which is ripped off from {{Mission Impossible}} and how the ending is a rip off of Home Alone.
** Jon Bailey actually interrupts his reading of the Divergent honest trailer because he sees it as being identical to the Hunger Games.
