First teaser trailer for Insidious: Chapter 3

First official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron

Well I guess no one has to watch Agents of SHIELD on the 28th anymore. Thanks to a snafu leading to a leaked teaser earlier today (which we didn't post because Flixist doesn't dabble in the dark legal arts), Marvel has gone ahead and officially released the first teaser for the much anticipated Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron

We've got a darker tone, James Spader as the killer robot Ultron, and Marvel's version of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Oh right, and HULKBUSTER YEEEEEEEEEEEAH. 

Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1, 2015.

Red Band teaser for The Gambler is a big f**k you

I don't really know what's going on in this first teaser for The Gambler (featuring a slimmed down Mark Wahlberg), but I dig it. Most films that deliver an expletive spouting John Goodman are pretty much winners in my book. ...

Joshua Oppenheimer's Indonesian genocide documentary The Act of Killing was one of the best films of 2013. It was unique in that it forced those who bragged about their killings to reenact them and see it from a different pe...

Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 teaser shows off new footage

This newest teaser for The Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 1 is short (clocking in at barely over a minute), but boy does it work. Showing off Lorde's new single "Yellow Flicker Beat," the teaser reveals what happens when Katniss makes her way back to District 12. Let's just say things are going to get pretty good.  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st.

NYCC: Disney's Tomorrowland gets its first teaser
by Matthew Razak

If you're not excited for Tommorowland now is the time to get there because at the New York Comic Con Disney started the hype. Nick will be supplying us with a full rundown from the event itself, but above you'll find our first look for the finally-here film from Pixar director Brad Bird. 

Britt Robinson plays a young teen who joins up with a jaded scientist (George Clooney) to discover the mysterious Tommorowland. Just from the trailer alone you can tell they'll be imbuing something special into this film. The only real worry is that Damon Lindelof co-wrote the screenplay with Bird so we might be in for a lot of nonsensical science fiction stuff. Hopefully it is kept at bay by the fun we know Bird can have.

First teaser trailer for Pixar's Inside Out  photo
First teaser trailer for Pixar's Inside Out
by Jonathan Wray

In a rather unexpected move, Pixar released their first teaser for the upcoming film Inside Out, scheduled to tug on our heartstrings next summer.

The teaser trailer mentally prepares you for what you're about to see by quickly spanning through the emotions you felt while watching previous Pixar movies, such as Up (I'm still crying), Cars, Wall-E, Monsters, Inc., Brave, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and even Ratatouille. The trailer then poses the question: Have you ever wondered where those emotions live?

That's the premise for Inside Out, a film that deals with Riley and all of her emotions - Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), and Joy (Amy Poehler). It's Joy's job to keep the other four emotions in check. In true Pixar fashion, something's bound to go wrong, but it all wraps up with a happy ending, then we praise it for the next five to seven years.

In all seriousness, there's nothing that I look forward to more than an upcoming Pixar film, and this one's no exception. The emotions are extremely colorful, and given that the film will have a 3D release, Pixar is sure to once again set the visual standard for animated films and 3D effects. With Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up) directing, my hype level is pretty high.

Inside Out opens nationwide June 19th, 2015.

Final Trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar photo
Final Trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar
by Nick Valdez

As Interstellar is one of the few films left making use of physical film over digital, you'll notice a surprising amount of emphasis over it in this most likely final trailer for Christopher Nolan's space hip-hopera (not really) Interstellar. Being touted as a 70mm IMAX film, 70mm film and 35mm film release, Nolan's longest film yet might be his most visually exciting. 

I'd just have to hope it's at least visually good because this trailer showing a few cracks. Watch it and you'll see what I mean. Interstellar opens November 7th. Follow this link to find all the ways you can watch this sucker.
