Disney's "The Jungle Book" is now available on Digital HD, so in its honor, Screen Junkies gave the movie its own Honest Trailer ... that takes its harshest shots at the Andy Serkis "Jungle Book" coming in 2018.
The Honest Trailers series is usually pretty brutal, but they clearly loved director Jon Favreau's "The Jungle Book," calling it "the year's best film about talking animals, which is really saying something, 'cause there's been like 10 of them already and the year's not even done yet." They also call it groundbreaking, well-written, visually stunning, and action-packed, accepting that it's just way better than it should be.
"Follow along on a young man's search for acceptance in this winning combination of 'The Lion King,' a Ben Kingsley nature documentary, and a kid-friendly version of 'The Revenant.' Jeez I hope there's no deleted scene where he sleeps inside of a rhino... Journey deep inside a downtown Los Angeles blue screen studio, where a grown man spent months playing with a little boy in his underwear, that they turned into this? Holy crap."
Pretty amazing. Watch the Honest Trailer trailer:It's true. Scarlett Johansson's voice is a turn-on in just about any context.
