For those of you who are unfamiliar with Screen Junkies, it is movie focused YouTube channel with almost 5 million subscribers and over 400 videos. With weekly series Movie Fights and Honest Trailers, among others, the Screen Junkies channel has amassed millions of viewers around the world. Now, at the height of their powers, the minds behind the YouTube sensation have decided to take a surprising next step by creating a subscription service app entitled, "Screen Junkies Plus."
Personally, I am a huge fan of the Screen Junkies movie channel and tune in each week to see both Movie Fights and Honest Trailers. As a movie fanatic, I believe Screen Junkies to be one of the most entertaining YouTube channels on the web and find myself glued to every episode of Movie Fights, either on YouTube or listening to it on my podcast streaming service. For about a month now, Andy Signore, host of Movie Fights, has teased big news for Screen Junkies fans and last week, finally announced this paid streaming service with all new content.
With the announcement of the streaming service comes a slew of new shows, content, and personalities. Screen Junkies joins forces with already established YouTube names: Alicia Malone, Jeremy Jahns, and Chris Stuckman to name a few. Both the new talent, as well as familiar Screen Junkies residents are banding together to bring daily content to movie fans. Show Fights, Mundy Night Raw, Interns of the F.I.E.L.D., Movie Games, and Does if Hold Up are just a few of the new shows already announced for the app. Below, I have provided the descriptions of some of the new shows coming to the Screen Junkies Plus app (via Hollywood Reporter), along with the announcement trailer for the streaming service.
