Flix for Short: Tuck Me In

The winner of the 2014 Filminute one-minute-film festival, Tuck Me In is an awesome example of minimalist horror. After years and years of so-called scary movies that go on for way too long and show too much, this gives viewers just the right taste of something to be pretty disturbed by.

With the final trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, the awesome marketing this film has had comes to a close. From great propaganda style teasers and posters, to how few trailers for the film we actually got (usually we're told of like twenty of these videos a day, I'm going to miss Mockingjay. I'm sure the film'll be great too. 

As the final book in The Hunger Games series, Mockingjay finally explored themes outside of its original (but not very unique) premise. The first half is definitely the best part, so I can't wait to see the results. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 has got that fire, fire, fire and it's gonna let it burn November 21st.

First teaser trailer for Insidious: Chapter 3

I've never been truly interested in the Insidious series until now. You know why? There's a scene in this teaser where a girl learns her house is haunted through texts...on her T MOBILE SIDEKICK. Oh my god. Insidious: Chapter 3 releases May 29th next year. Check out the poster in the gallery.

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. ...

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.
