First trailer for Self/less is pretty much the entire movie

Self/less has the kind of awesome sci-fi premise that sounds unique, but also sounds like it's been done before. If you're interested in Self/less, it stars Ben Kingsley as a wealthy, but ill rich man who uses his fortune to...

Here's a bunch of neat posters for The Peanuts Movie

The more I see of The Peanuts Movie, the more I fall in love with it. Everything just feels right. It's got a cast of unknown kids, looks fabulous, and I'll probably buy a few of these posters. I just dig that stark yellow. Check all the posters in the gallery below, and one parody one aping The Grand Budapest Hotel. The Peanuts Movie opens November 6th.

First trailer for Dragonball Z: Fukkatsu no F features a golden Frieza

I don't think I've ever talked about it here, but Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods was one of the funnest animated films I saw last year. Didn't give it enough credit because it was essentially an hour of a dude punching a giant...

Drew Goddard could direct Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man reboot

When Sony announced they were bringing Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I thought of many reasons it could be a bad or good idea. But one thing I had never thought of was what potential directors we'd get for th...

Newest Jem and the Holograms movie image is truly, truly, truly outrageous

Box Office Numbers: Gettin' Focused Wit It

It's a shame that no matter how many films Will Smith is in, I'll always reference Gettin Jiggy Wit It. Seeing as Focus was alright, and secured the top spot at the box office with $19 million, maybe I'll let it go? Uhhhhh...na na na na na na na.  Hit the jump for the box office performances for the February 27-March 1 weekend. [via Rentrak]

Rocky spin-off Creed gets a sad synopsis

It took me years, YEARS, to get over Rocky Balboa. When the three decade long Rocky saga finally came to end, it was a good end but I still wanted much more. The Rocky films mean so much to me (so much that I wrote my undergr...

Rumor: Naked Schwarzenegger will be sans Penys in Terminator: Genisys

We try to stay away from rumors as much as possible, but as in the past, sometimes something so ridiculous pops up, I just have to tell you about it. Case in point, the craziest thing I've heard about Terminator: Genisys (bes...

Check out this awesome Birdman toy commercial

There's not really much to say other than this is a neat little ditty promoting Birdman's victory lap through some theaters after taking home the Best Picture Oscar. But it's just really, really neat. If you haven't yet, you should watch Big Birdman too.  "Smells like balls."

Flix for Short: Power/Rangers, a super gritty MMPR fan film

Last year, around the time Saban and Lionsgate announced they were working on a new Power Rangers movie, I wrote up a few ways to do it properly. One of those suggestions is to keep the grimdark stuff as far away as possible...

There are too many cooks on this Avengers: Age of Ultron poster

You kind of forget how massive this movie's cast is until you get it all in one image. It's...overwhelming. Notably, the cast includes Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell, and Anthony Mackie as well. Let's hope there's a good balance of all those big names. Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1st. [via Twitter] [Header via Hubes]

Here are your 2015 Razzie winners and losers

With the 2015 Academy Awards come and gone, it's time to focus on the negative stuff...or at least the stuff that's popular to hate rather than actual bad movies. We've got expected "winners" like Michael Bay and lots of hate for Saving Christmas. I've never seen it myself, but was it bad enough to sweep these things?  Full list of winners below.

Flix for Short: Big Birdman

We've featured Sesame Street parodies on the site before, but they've never been as mindblowing as this. Featuring Caroll Spinney and Big Bird, this is just all kinds of perfect.  "How did we get here? How did we get to Sesame Street?"

Newest Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends trailer is on fire

Neill Blomkamp will officially direct new Alien film photo
Neill Blomkamp will officially direct new Alien film
by Nick Valdez

When you write your list of perfect directors for the Alien franchise, where does Neill Blomkamp (director of District 9, Elysium and the upcoming Chappie) fall in? Hope it's close to the top because after what seems like months, Fox and Blomkamp have finally closed the deal. 

After Blomkamp posted some concept art to Instagram a few weeks back, he posited that he'd like to make an Alien film after his work on Chappie as a sort of reboot to the series. But he was the problem. It was just a matter of wanting to do it rather than being told not to. But I guess it's all straightened out now! According to Variety, Blomkamp's Alien is separated from the Prometheus films (so we're still getting Prometheus 2 for some reason) and will apparently take place years after the first Prometheus. 

If this can be anywhere as near as cool as that artwork he drew for the series, I'm game. I'm dropping the best one in the gallery below.

Joel Kinnaman replacing Tom Hardy in Suicide Squad

One of the weirdest films coming out of Warner Bros and DC's upcoming film slate is definitely the supervillain team up film, Suicide Squad. Normally I'd make some joke about a bland white guy replacing a bland white guy...
