Was anyone clamoring for a new take on a bad mother shut your mouth? Well, New Line is hoping you're still talking about Shaft as there is reportedly a reboot of the series in the works. Starting off as a 1971 film starring R...
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...
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...
After what seemed liked years of speculation after Edgar Wright left Ant-Man, Marvel has finally found a replacement director. It's someone none of us would have even guessed. Names like Adam McKay, Nicholas Stoller, Rawson T...


Along with the incredible bombshell dropped earlier today, Bob Iger dished out some nifty Star Wars: Episode VII news during the Disney shareholder's meeting. While we should expect the real big news (such as casting, and plo...
So there's a good chance The LEGO Movie is going to do extremely well in the box office, and there's a good chance (thanks to positive early reviews and Matt saying it's great), it's good enouhg to warrant that performance. B...
There are a LOT of Star Wars: Episode VII rumors floating around. From script problems, to crazy actor castings, to story points and so on. We here at Flixist don't want to clog you guys with all of that mumbo jumbo, and will...
A few of you may not know that The Best Man Holiday, which almost dethroned Thor: The Dark World its opening weekend, is actually a sequel 14 years in the making. The follow up to 1999's The Best Man was surprisingly wanted t...
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's Key & Peele's sketch comedy show on Comedy Central is absolutely genius. While the two may have been around for a long time (some will recognize the duo from their stints on MADtv), t...
Remember way back in 2007 when talks of a movie adaptation of Kane and Lynch: Dead Men was in the works? Me neither. What I do remember, however, was the film was almost released in 2011 with Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx in ta...
Kevin Tancharoen is singlehandedly responsible for Mortal Kombat's revival. While Netherrealm's game did a splendid job of getting everyone interested in the fighting game series again, Tancharoen's projects kept that hype af...
Hellraiser is quite an interesting franchise. I don't want to necessarily label it as the most "niche" of the horror monster genre, but its overt S&M themes make it one of the few franchises that both stands out, yet stic...
UPDATE: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Edgar Wright have shot down the rumor (Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd were in meetings for the Ant-Man lead) with the former calling it "outright lies." According to an interview with the French ...
Consider this bit of news with the heaviest, heart attack causing salt as this is merely Roland Emmerich mentioning some things. According to an interview with Digital Spy, Roland Emmerich said he and Big Willie Style are "ba...
Transfomers: Dark of the Moon may not have been the best thing since, uh, Dark Side of the Moon, but it performed well enough to justify a sequel. But what can Trans4mers, now officially titled Transformers: Age of Extinction...
Todd McFarlane has wanted to get a reboot to his 1997 classic Spawn film off the ground for some time now. It's always been delayed for any number of reasons, but McFarlane still soldiers on as it remains his only notable pro...
Whether we end up liking Man of Steel or not (Matt's review indicates we'll mostly like it), Warner Bros and DC are using it as the jumping point for the rest of their cinematic universe, starting with a Man of Steel sequel a...
Ubisoft seems to be getting pretty heavily into the film biz. After Assassin's Creed got the Fassbender treatment, and with Tom Hardy on board for Splinter Cell, Michael Bay for Ghost Recon (ugh), three more Ubisoft...
Tina Fey is producing and possibly starring in The Nest, a comedy about two middle aged sisters who live it up in their old childhood home for one weekend before it's sold, written by Paula Pell (who was an SNL writer for a g...
The art in the header is "sweet halloween dreams" drawn by Alex Panagopoulos. And it's a interesting take on teddy bears (maybe even more so than Ted). Why is this important? It's been picked up by Dwanye "The People's Champi...
It seems like Nolan's follow up to the Batman trilogy is the sci-fi film involving wormholes and alternate dimensions, Interstellar. The script was written by his brother, Johnathan Nolan, but not much more is known about the...
You know how Dr. Curt Connors showed up in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy but never got to turn into The Lizard (even if we got that wish granted several years later)? Apparently, there were plans for Connors to turn into The...
