Despite being a massive box office success, many audiences who saw Fifty Shades of Grey earlier this year were surprisingly disappointed with how tame the film was compared to the books. Original author E. L. James also repor...


Although Fifty Shades of Grey had the worst staying power imaginable, as it dropped over 70% in box office sales its second weekend out which meant that word of mouth was deservedly awful, it still made $550 million worldwide...


Coming out of absolutely nowhere comes my most anticipated project in some time. After Universal announced that Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe Retaliation/Step Up) is adapting the popular children's cartoon about a kickass girl band an...


Neighbors had, to me, one of the most memorable, laugh-out-loud trailers in recent memory. Unfortunately, and perhaps personally, the film didn't deliver quite as many laughs. The general public seems to disagree, howeve...




They're baaaaaaack! Or, rather, they're here, since Minions serves as a prequel. Arguably the best characters in the Despicable Me franchise finally have their own film, and I couldn't be more excited. In Minions, ...


Jurassic World's first trailer was underwhelming for a number of reasons. As cool as a raptor gang was, the CG wasn't quite there yet and the tone of the trailer couldn't decide if it was supposed to be intentionally goofy o...


This Steve Jobs biopic has been through the ringer. After years of director changes, big stars (Christian Bale) joining and leaving the film, and Sony dropping the project after budget concerns, Steve Jobs (the film's now off...


In case you missed Dracula Untold and haven't been paying attention at all to what Universal is doing with its monster films, this may be surprising news: the Universal Monsters Universe that the studio is creating will ...


I've reached a crossroads. Writing so much about the Fast and the Furious franchise makes me feel like such a hypocrite. Take the first trailer for Furious 7, for instance. Here I am celebrating a series' seventh installment ...


Universal doesn't have any comic books to create a cohesive universe out of, but since doing that seems to be a way to make lots of money (at least if you're as good at it as Marvel is) that isn't going to stop them. With rec...


Universal's monster movies may have actually been the forerunner to the modern "cinematic universe" trend we're seeing thanks to Marvel as they often crossed over with each other and had stylistic similarities, but that doesn...


Growing up, my dad brought me to quite a few Lowrider car shows. They're different from your average car show because they're certainly skewed toward a certain demographic. And that demographic loved themselves some Scarface....


Hot off the heels of announcing Elizabeth Banks as the director for the upcoming Pitch Perfect sequel, Universal has announced a slew of release dates over the next two years. Here in attendance is Guillermo Del Toro's Crimso...


Although Riddick completely flopped at the box office despite Vin Diesel leveraging his own house to make it a reality, like Dredd (Riddick's brother in R rated but ignored glory), it has found its place on home video. On his...


Pitch Perfect was a splendid surprise back when it released in 2012. It's funny (but not exactly brilliant), has cool women that do cool things, and the music's pretty fly ("Cups" ended being one of 2013's biggest singles). I...


God has forsaken us. The people behind the horrendous Lorax remake (Which Flixist's own Matthew Razak liked, but what does he know) are making a new film based on Dr. Seuss' classic holiday children's book. Whose idea was thi...


Now that Fast & Furious 7 has officially halted its production for the time being to properly get its bearings after losing Paul Walker, Universal is still in the midst of a very confusing situation. One of the many optio...


Since the death of Paul Walker things have been very up in the air with Fast & Furious 7, but Universal is stepping up and creating some good out of it. A percentage of the sales from Fast & Furious 6's Blu-ray/D...


Legendary Pictures has left Warner Bros (their deal produced such hits as The Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel, and The Hangover trilogy) since their deal expired last June. There was an attempt to re-negotiate, but that fel...


First of all, if you haven't seen Cabin in the Woods, go and do so now. There may be some potentially very small minor spoilers, but mostly having to do with locations. You have been warned! Universal Orlando wants to create ...


Pitch Perfect flourished like wildfire from seemingly out of nowhere. I loved it for what it was and still sort of catch myself watching it from time to time. It featured a nice cast of almost nobodies (not including Anna Ken...


The Purge takes place in some kind of future where the government makes all sorts of crime legal for one night (12 hours) a year. This "purge" apparently makes America better by reducing crime rates and unemployment somehow....
