When Screen Junkies did their honest trailer on Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the professional roasters came up with nearly nothing bad to say about the film. In fact, it’s one of the rare honest trailers that absolutely praises the movie, rather than roast it down to the bone. Now Captain America: Civil War, which was an extreme success in all facets (critics, fans, and box-office) earlier this year, has gotten its own honest trailer treatment. While the film was near or on the same level as its predecessor, Screen Junkies has definitely taken a different approach this time around.
I without any kind of hesitation loved Civil War. I’ve seen it nearly a dozen times and am still contemplating whether or not it’s the best Marvel movie I’ve seen to date. Of course, I recognize the flaws it has, with the major being the villain. But in no way, shape or form do I agree with Screen Junkies’ stance that it’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with a Marvel filter. If you’ve been following us on our site or podcasts, you know where I stand when it comes to Batman v Superman. You’ve heard my comments, positives, and negatives. Sure, there are similarities, obviously. But quite frankly, I just think they’re flat-out wrong. If they are so similar, why were they received so differently? Why is there no controversy or giant questions revolving around Civil War if that’s the case? Oh that’s right, there is no major plot holes or story issues, there wasn’t a horrible job of editing or even a “better” version that the studio didn’t decide to release theatrically. Oh that’s right, I see now.
Anyway, Screen Junkies has revealed their honest trailer for Marvel’s latest epic entry, Captain America: Civil War. It was directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and was finally released on Blu-ray and DVD this last week. Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts on it in the comments.
