Sam Raimi had to save The Last of Us adaptation from the game's writer

The Last of Us was a fascinating movie with a not-very-good game attached to it. The narrative and cutscenes told a compelling story that were undermined at every minute by stupid decisions forced onto the narrative by i...

Comic-Con posters for Ant-Man, Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Hobbit and more

With San Diego Comic-Con well underway, there have been quite a few posters released for each film. I thought about this for quite a bit, and instead of having each poster get their own post, I figured I'd just put them all i...

First trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey photo
First trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey
by Nick Valdez

So, here we are. Although Fifty Shades of Grey will never be the movie you want (but if you wanted straight porn, it's out there already), I can promise this trailer at least captures the tone of your favorite romance/pornography series. Starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as two attractive people in a boy meets frumpy girl, tells her she's not frumpy, and then goes all S&M on her for three books kind of story. 

Fifty Shades of Grey climaxes Valentine's Day 2015.

UPDATE: We've gotten more images! Most importantly, we have our first look at Slappy the Puppet, one of the standouts from the Goosebumps universe. Other than that, I have no idea what the other monsters are although one look...

Full Japanese trailer for Ghibli's When Marnie Was There

Studio Ghibli's films are so damn pretty, I don't even need to understand what anyone is saying. That's why this Japanese trailer for their latest film, When Marnie Was There, is perfect for me. In much better quality than t...

First trailer for Predestination, starring Ethan Hawke

The Spierig brothers' Predestination was a complete surprise when I saw it during SXSW. With a nice twist on science fiction, the lead up to the finale was entertaining. Based on Robert A. Heinlein's "All You Zombies," Prede...

Now we're getting a Space Invaders movie

Next up in the long line of turning random properties into movies because sometimes they make money, is Space Invaders. Back when Warner Bros first acquired the rights for a movie adaptation of the Taito arcade game, they tri...

Here are Marvel's release dates through May 2019

With Guardians of the Galaxy only two weeks away, the Marvel hype train never ceases to amaze me. I've talked about my distaste for Marvel's marketing strategy before (where we know when and what we're getting so there's no r...

See Guardians of the Galaxy early and free

Guardians of the Galaxy is probably my most anticipated Marvel movie in ever. It looks like it's finally shaking up the stale franchises for good. And if not, at least it's got a great cast at the center. So for some lucky fo...

First trailer for Ouija, a movie someone thought was a good idea

I really, really can't believe this exists. You know how on some TV shows you'll see a joke about an intentionally bad trailer based on a random product? This is exactly like one of those. In the same vein as Battleship, Oui...

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers movie gets First Class writers

Ever since it was announced, I've been very excited for the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers reboot. Regardless of how it turns out (whether it ends up like Transformers or like Rise of the Planet of the Apes), I know I'm going ...

Hellboy 3 definitely isn't happening

After years of endless trying and never giving up, Guillermo del Toro finally gave up on making Hellboy 3 a reality. On a recent Reddit AMA, del Toro admitted the film wasn't happening due to a lack of a studio backing: ...

First full trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 is just adorable photo
First full trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 is just adorable
by Nick Valdez

When I posted the teaser trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 some time ago, I loved how cute the whole thing was. Yet, this first full trailer rings kind of hollow. As it completely relies on that cuteness, more cracks are starting to show. Sure Baymax (Scott Adsit as the squishy robot) will get a lot of chuckles out of me, but nothing else sticks out right now. 

But with this plot (a man in a kabuki mask is attacking their city with nanobots), and the reveal of the other heroes (played by Damon Wayans Jr., Jamie Chung, TJ Miller, and Genesis Rodriguez), I'm hoping there's still something hidden away. 

Big Hero 6 releases November 7th.

Ridley Scott producing biblical film based on David

With Noah, a Ben-Hur remake, that Bible miniseries, a film based on Pontius Pilate, and Ridley Scott's own Exodus: Gods and Kings in the pipeline, it seems like big Biblical adaptations are making a comeback. That's pretty co...

Here's a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer featuring Michael Rooker

I'm going to be upfront with you all. I have not seen this trailer for myself. In trying to keep as much mysticism toward the first original Marvel film in years as possible, I've only seen the first two trailers as later on...

Second The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 teaser keeps the propaganda going

Continuing on with the awesome propaganda-like campaign, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 gives us another President Snow address. This time, however. He's joined by several surprising guests. Once again, this is both a...

Trailer for Gone Girl features a murder she wrote

Here are images of Max Steel, a movie I just found out existed

Japanese teaser for next Ghibli film, When Marnie Was There

Based on Joan G. Robinson's novel of the same name, When Marnie is There is about a lonely little girl who befriends a ghost. I've never read the book myself, but if it's being adapted by Studio Ghibli, I'm sure it's equal p...

First teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is cooler than you'd expect photo
First teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is cooler than you'd expect
by Nick Valdez

Rather than go for the conventional teaser trailer that we run on the site everyday, our first look at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is much better than I expected. A unique twist on the viral propaganda campaign the film has been running for the last few months, here we have a message from President Snow (Donald Sutherland) explaining why The Capitol is so important. 

If you've read the books, you understand why Snow's with a certain guest in the video. If you haven't then you're going to have so many questions. A cool delivery with a teased mystery? That's the perfect way to make teaser trailers, folks. More please. 

Expect a more conventional trailer to pop up soon given that we're five months away from the film's release. I liked Catching Fire enough, so I can't wait for more. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st.
