Second How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer spoils dragons

Much like the first full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2, this second trailer continues to spoil a lot of the movie. But rather than spoil the entirety of the film's plot, we only get a bit of it. It's a shame because...

New red ban trailer for 22 Jump Street

It shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the sequel to the hilarious 21 Jump Street will be crammed full of cuss words and other R-rated antics, but just in case you were worried here is a red band trailer confirming...

First official trailer for Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff's Kickstarter film
by Jonathan Wray

There's always a long wait after a Kickstarter project ends. When that Kickstarter project is for a film, the wait is painful. When it's Zach Braff's latest film, the wait is downright torturous. Thankfully, that wait is almost over, and now we have a trailer to tide us over.

Released today, Wish I Was Here is full of Zach Braff's trademarks as a director: wide, vibrant shots, slow-motion shots, and shots with the character as an afterthought. Set to the tune of "Simple Song" by The Shins and clocking in at roughly a minute and forty seconds, it almost seems like the trailer is its own story: a guy who seems jarred by some sort of tragedy has a complete disconnect with reality and goes on wild adventures with the gorgeous Penny Lane Kate Hudson.

The trailer left me feeling emotionally drained, hopeful, adventurous, and longing for a road trip. If this is even a tenth as fantastic as Garden State was, we're all in for a treat. Keep in mind that with Garden State, Braff was creatively restrained by the powers that be. Since money was raised by the community for this film, he's free to let his creativity shine.

Expect more coverage as we lead up to Wish I Was Here's debut in theaters this July.

First official trailer for Jon Favreau's Chef

Chef is an interesting film. It's definitely Favreau's passion project, but it just doesn't quite gel completely. I saw the film at SXSW and while I liked most of what I saw, the majority of the film lacked Favreau's tradema...

Newest trailer for Blended is the saddest thing I'll see all day

First full trailer for The Expendables 3 photo
First full trailer for The Expendables 3
by Mike Cosimano

The folks over at Yahoo Movies have released the first teaser for The Expendables 3, showing a couple action beats and the film's pretty sizable cast.

I didn't much care for The Expendables One, with its dark color palette and overly serious tone, but The Expendables 2: Expenda-lectric Boogaloo was a delightfully cheesy throwback. And it appears as if The Expendables 3: Revenge of the Gibson will be following the path its predecessor took to Funtown, USA.

Of course, this is all filler until Expendabelles comes out.

First trailer for The Drop, starring Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini

The Drop has the unfortunate stigma of being James Gandolfini's final film. Whether or not it's spectacular, there's always going to be a sense of dread watching the film knowing we've lost a man with such potential. Like wi...

First official trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles photo
First official trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
by Nick Valdez

This is it, folks. This is what a good chunk of the internet has been waiting for the past two/three years to see. From Michael Bay producing the film, to the "they're now aliens" rumor, to the extremely bad leaked script, to the weird casting, to the funky looking design leaks, we've all wanted to see how Bay's production of Ninja Turtles would look in motion. 

I'm not as big of a fan of the Turtles as some of the other editors here on Flixist are, so I can't really say much to how well they're represented in this teaser. But from here it all looks okay. Since the only thing I have to go on from director Johnathan Liebesmen is the lackluster Battle: Los Angeles, I hope TMNT has more to offer than its looks. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles exerts its turtle power August 8th. Here's the synopsis: 

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.
