Comic-Con trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

I'm loving the advertising campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 so far. Continuing on with the minimalist teasers is the Comic-Con trailer which contains the first actual footage from the film. Not much is said...

Review: Hercules

I've been anticipating Hercules' release for a while now. I love Dwayne Johnson, and want to see him in more leading roles that aren't just kid films. I figure he's got the charisma and talent just buried somewhere in there a...

Character posters for The Expendables 3 get colorful

While the trailers for The Expendables 3 refuse to drop the Fast & Furious-style title font, at least it's trying something different with the rest of its marketing. In a lighthearted move to remind us the film will be ra...

Review: The Purge: Anarchy

The Purge came and went without much fanfare. It had an interesting premise (which spawned the #CrimeDay Twitter game here on Flixist), but wasted it with a by-the-numbers home invasion film. When The Purge: Anarchy was ...

This is why The Raid 2 is like nothing you've ever seen before

This isn't even the most impressive shot in that sequence! There's others that are even more complicated, but what makes it so awesome is that they did it all for real. No digital tricks, just great camera work. Most likely if you've got The Raid 2: Berandal you've seen this already in the making of, but god damn is that impressive. [via Reddit]

NYAFF Review: Firestorm 3D

NYAFF Review: Why Don't You Play in Hell?

Last year, Japan Cuts played Sion Sono's Bad Film, a project filmed back in 1995 but not finished until 2012. In my non-review of the film, I unequivocally called it a masterpiece, and I stand by every word. It is a labo...

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

To be honest, I only chose this story because it reminded me about that one episode of The Simpsons where Homer changed his name to Max Power (He's a man whose name you love to touch...but you mustn't touch), and any chance I...

Bruce Willis is a child kidnapper in first trailer for 'The Prince'

Sometimes, an assassin needs to kidnap a rival assassin's daughter to make a point. I mean, we've all been there, right? Okay, maybe not, but the kidnapping of young girls while they're away from home is definitely a popular...

Trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles delivers Splinter

I had been holding out hope on the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles even when the design got all weird and the last trailer wasn't too exciting. This new trailer, however, puts the nail in the coffin. I...

Although I don't really like The Purge because it never focused on cool crimes like eating zoo animals or naked jaywalking*, it's got a wonderful premise that's ripe for stories. And it looks like The Purge: Anarchy is going...
