Huge congratulations to everyone involved on growing the Screen Junkies YouTube channel to 3 million subscribers. This is a huge milestone for the pop culture, entertainment and movie centric brand which is know for Honest Trailers and The Screen Junkies Show.
Honest Trailers, which gives viewers an “honest” look at what movies and TV shows, with a hilarious twist, has been steadily growing since 2012 and each episode averages 3 million views. The series is even having an impact on the way movies are made. Collider reports that “Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s success is owed in part to the very webseries [Honest Trailers] that would gladly tear it down. It turns out the superhero sequel’s helmers, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, are big fans of Honest Trailers, and set the standards for their story’s logic exceptionally high because of it.”
The brothers said:
“What’s so funny is that I’m an avid Honest Trailer watcher. I love it. It cracks me up. So…we used to sit in the room and go, ‘this is not going to end up in an Honest Trailer. This logic isn’t sound enough yet.’ We literally tried to Honest Trailer-proof the movie. Because what Honest Trailers really is, and I’ll say litmus test again, is ‘how sound is the logic in your film? How ridiculous are the buys that you’re asking the audience to make?’ So we would just comb through the script over and over again and go, ‘How do we shore up this logic? How do we shore up this logic?’ So it was a very helpful exercise for us.”
