After getting bombarded with incessant requests to make an ‘Honest Trailer’ on 2015’s surprise hit, Jungle Book, popular YouTube channel Screen Junkies has finally given the fans what they wanted.
What’s new about this one? Well, this Jon Favreau directorial is one of the very few movies that the team at Screen Junkies actually didn’t mock. Last time we heard so much appreciation for a movie was when they made the trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road.
Before anything else, watch the video:
The Honest Trailers are a great help in noticing details (good or bad) that you might have missed while watching the movie. For example, they tell us how the Jungle Book can also be seen as a ‘kid-friendly version of The Revenant’ or how Shere Khan may have actually been the good guy in the story because all he ever wanted was to save his jungle but Mowgli sets it on fire anyway. Did you too think that way in the theatre? No, right?
Screen Junkies look obsessed with the extensive use of blue screen and are still awestruck at the sheer excellence of the end product and hyperreal CGI animals. They also call out Warner Bros for making another Jungle Book remake with Andy Serkis because ‘God forbid any live-action CGI movie gets made without Andy Serkis’. How they expect to top this is beyond our imagination.
