Sit back, relax and check out all that today's Nerd Alert has to offer.
Minions Honest Trailer
The Screen Junkies crew sets its sarcastic sights on the animated blockbuster Minions for their latest Honest Trailer. This three-minute video pokes fun at the immense marketing campaign and product tie-ins Universal used to promote this movie, along with the fact that this "origin story" doesn't explain what a Minion really is, or how their language developed. Minions is the third Universal movie to crack $1 billion worldwide this year, a feat never accomplished by any studio before, but as you can see in this video, the animated spinoff of Despicable Me is not without its flaws.
All Six Star Wars Movies In Three Minutes
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally hitting theaters on December 18, many fans will likely be revisiting the first six movies to get prepared for this highly-anticipated blockbuster-to-be. If you don't have the time to sit down for a Star Wars marathon, Eclectic Method has put together a three-minute supercut that breaks down all of the key moments from the original trilogy and the prequels. Of course, this video doesn't cover everything in the Star Wars universe, but it does provide a nice refresher course.
Marvel Cinematic Universe Romantic Comedy
Have you ever wondered what the Marvel Cinematic Universe would look like with a little more romance? Then you're in luck, because Vulture has put together a new "remix" that reimagines the MCU as a romatic comedy. This brief one-minute video takes footage from this summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron and, with the help of some new music, puts a romantic spin on this superhero adventure.
The U.S. Navy Does Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The fine folks at the U.S. Navy have put together a homemade version of the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, set on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69). Using items like a mop bucket for BB-8, a sanitation truck and, of course, actual fighter jets, these sailors have put together a wonderful sweded version of this now-iconic trailer. We salute you, crew of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Elders React to Dirty Grandpa *R-Rated Language
Fine Brothers Entertainment is back with another video in their Elders React series, where they see how senior citizens react to the red band trailer for Paramount's Dirty Grandpa. These elders seem to get quite a kick out of this raunchy trailer, and it seems all of them plan on seeing this comedy when it hits theaters in January.
2015 Movie Supercut
