Over the past few years Disney has acquired and developed a collection of film properties and franchises that basically means it owns the world. At Cinema Con the company basically bragged about its upcoming slate of films an...


I understand giving an author some say over their book's adaptation, but this is getting ridiculous. It seems that the production of these films is so awful, any of the slightly talented people involved are being chased off b...


It seems like I'm talking about Spider-Man every other day, so I care a little less every time. But you know what brings me back into the fold? Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the guys who're pretty much involved with every movie...


Oh man, The Little Prince is one of my absolute favorite books, so when I heard they were making a new animated film version, my attention went up. The first trailer, while entirely in French, gave an impressive look at the ...


Avengers: Age of Ultron is almost upon us (and in some parts of the world already is), so it's just about time to start frothing at the mouth over the next big Marvel thing, which happens to be Peyton Reed's Ant-Man. Before a...


Something about the ubiquity of The Simpsons lends itself to some weird post-modern fan creations, such as the popular Bartkira project. Recently, one of the more noteworthy projects has been the independent comic, Die Homer,...


I'm seeing Avengers tomorrow, Star Wars has just had a new trailer, and Fast and Furious 7 has made more money than every country in Scandinavia combined. In this world of blockbuster juggernauts, Jerry Bruckhe...


If you were hankerin' for more LEGO movies, we're getting a huge chunk of them all at once. Since WB's first big animated effort (for its smaller affiliate group), The LEGO Movie, did so well in theaters, we're not only getti...


There are moments of Thank You for Playing that are so painful because the documentary feels so personal. It's about Joel Green, a boy with terminal brain cancer, and how his parents try to cherish the little joys in life whi...


Brad Bird may have gotten his start at Pixar, but the guy is a fantastic action director as Ghost Protocol and The Incredibles showed us, and this new trailer for Tomorrowland demonstrates that the film is taki...


For those who care about the happenings at the Cannes Film Festival, the past few days has been very exciting. Late last week parts of the official program was unveiled, and today the members of the jury has been made pu...


At a certain point in Erik Shirai’s documentary The Birth of Sake, it becomes apparent that the film isn't just about the art of making of sake. This is common in movies that are about making something—food, art, ...


It's offcial: Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve will write Marvel's upcoming Captain Marvel adaptation, the company confirmed today. The two women are certainly qualified – Perlman took the first pass at the Guardians of t...


The man who delivered the greatest presidential speech in the history of cinema is returning to the franchise he delivered it in. Bill Pullman will be coming back for the Independence Day sequel and joining him is Judd Hirsch...


The first Fant4stic trailer was more hit or miss than anything. I dug the science fiction overlay, but it was missing all of the FF's inherent goofballery. This newest trailer doesn't have any fun either, but it's not trying...


I can't say I'm too enthused about Jurassic World as I see more and more of it. Maybe if it wasn't a Jurassic Park film I'd be excited for what basically looks like a Predator remake with dinosaurs, some child...


So what did you think of that first trailer? The majority seems to swing toward apathy, but I really dug it. It looks a bit weird, more sterile than anything, but I'm hoping that'll ease up during the year. If the film can ca...


I don't know if you know, but those Star Wars movies are kinda a big deal at the moment. There was a new trailer for Star Wars; The Force Awakens that the internet is still dissecting line by line, there's a new video game th...


Last week, Furious 7 crossed a billion (with a b) dollars worldwide over 17 days. That makes it Universal's first film in history to cross that mark through its first run in theaters. Also, it's now the fastest (heh) to reach...


Thanks to the leak a few days ago, WB was forced to reveal their hand early before their big planned event in theaters. Everyone has opinions about this, and most of the Flixist staff here really didn't like its overtly dark...


I went into Unfriended expecting garbage. I told multiple people that I was on my way to the screening, and they asked why. I told them I didn’t know, but I was expecting terrible things. The trailer compared itself to ...


News that Michelle MacLaren was going to helm the Wonder Woman film got everyone pretty excited, and then news that she left the project got everyone unexcited (until Patty Jenkins came on). Of course the news was not de...


Since Studio Ghibli is still stuck in purgatory, and haven't announced a new feature since all of that financial weirdness reared its ugly head some time ago, When Marnie Was There might possibly be the studio's final film. ...


Films about indigenous groups have a strange and sordid history in film. Their appearances are far and few in-between and those that exist are a mixed bag of both quality and subject matter. The Dead Lands seeks to join this ...


Do you need any more convincing? At this point, you're either as hyped as I am for the next Mad Max or you're super uncool. But if you needed just one more trailer, than the latest one featuring footage of the old films will do just the trick. Mad Max: Fury Road opens May 15th.


So the other day, Zack Snyder tweeted out a short teaser to promote the five second tease of a trailer that WB wants you to go and buy IMAX tickets to see. Since that whole situation was ridiculous, we kept ourselves clean o...


We haven't talked much about Little Boy, mostly cause it looks pretty darn cheesy, but if the story of a child doing everything he can to end WWII so his father will come home sounds like the kind of heartwarming you nee...


I feel weird about this Blade Runner sequel. On the one hand, yay Blade Runner! It's a great film, with a great world, and it'd be amazing to return to it. On the other hand, what possible reason is there to make a sequel to ...


The latest trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens – revealed this morning at the Star Wars Celebration – has us all worked up here at Flixist. We've already watched it dozens upon dozens of times and analyzed it...


We may have had a not-trailer launch today, but far more importantly we have an actual trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. See this one didn't need a trailer for the trailer and we're still really excited about it. It'...


There was a press conference in Paris earlier today, where Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux and president Pierre Lescure unveiled the official lineup for this years festival - where we can find established auteur...


Can you believe it? Two stories about Star Wars posters in one week, except this time, the posters are for the new movie. An eagle eyed fan noticed these early posters for The Force Awakens posted a little too early on a Span...


Recently, Wonder Woman director Michelle MacLauren left the hotly anticipated film for creative differences, but Warner Bros. has already picked up the slack and found a new director for the project. Enter Patty Jenkins, whom...


Look, we know that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's trailer is a big deal, but releasing a teaser trailer for that trailer is absolutely ridiculous. Back when this trend first got off the ground we thought it was ridiculo...


Anyone who caught writer/director Andrew Bujalski's Computer Chess knows that he's got a very, shall we say, interesting take on the romantic comedy genre -- in that he almost completely destroys it. His newest fil...


Author Paul Gallagher is filing a lawsuit against those involved with The Cabin In The Woods: Lionsgate, Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, claiming the movie infringes upon the copyright of his novel The Little White Trip: A Nigh...


The true parentage of Chris Pratt's Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord (who?), was a running subplot throughout the original Guardians of the Galaxy – well, OK, his dad was mysteriously mentioned a couple of times. That movi...


Despite all of my better judgement, and how many times I've reviewed terrible comedy sequels made years later, I'm actually looking forward to Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser. The first one holds a lot of memories for me as I go...


National Lampoon's Vacation spawned a series of increasingly forgettable films (aside from European Vacation the first film I ever saw with boob), but a rebooted Vacation film is looking to bring back the magic...


The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival kicks off tonight here in New York City (aka the city that rarely sleeps and only does so with the assistance of illegally obtained medication). This year's festival opens with the world premier...
