Rogue gets to be in X-Men: Days of Future Past after all

With the seemingly endless amount of big name stars and characters in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, it's hard not to believe some of those characters would be left on the cutting room floor. One of those chara...

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...

'Allegiant' will be two movies; coming 2016 and 2017

As Flixist's Official Divergent Correspondent™, it's my actual job to stay on top of all the hot Divergent news. That doesn't mean I have to actually care about this nonsense, though. And I'm willing to bet you don't ca...

X-Men: Days of Future Past gets the worst posters

Fox has always had the worst luck with promoting its X-Men films. From X-Men to X-Men: First Class, they can never seem to put an adequate poster together. With Days of Future Past bringing the largest cast in the franchise, ...

Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The First Avenger is my favorite film out of the Marvel line up (which is why I claimed this review). Captain America has always been my personal favorite Marvel character due to a mix of that cool Saturday m...

Review: Divergent

Back before the final Twilight film hit theaters, I wrote up an article in which I discussed whether or not certain Young Adult book films would be the "next big thing." My initial outlook for Divergent looked good, but that ...

Review: 300: Rise of an Empire

When a not-sequel/prequel to 300, a film that hit theaters over eight theaters ago, was first announced, I was the first to complain about how boring the whole thing looked. And as time went on, and trailers were slowly ...

First official trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

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, t...

Second trailer for Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise

With all of the reboots and sequels abound, Edge of Tomorrow looks refreshingly unique. Based on Kiroshi Sakurazaka's manga All You Need is Kill, Tom Cruise plays a soldier who repeats the same day every time he's killed in ...

First teaser for the Peanuts movie looks astounding

When news first broke of a CG take of Charles Schulz's Peanuts gang, I was hesitant toward the idea. We've been groomed to automatically dislike animated reboots because the majority of the ones we've had have been lack...

SXSW Review: Joe

Only four minutes of Rhino in Amazing Spider-Man 2? That's a good thing.

At SXSW, Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb revealed that the Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti, will only be in the movie for a scant four minutes. GOOD. Three villains is too many, something Webb is well aware o...

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For's first trailer blasts in photo
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For's first trailer blasts in
by Matthew Razak

We've been waiting forever to see the clean, crisp black and white aesthetic of Sin City return to the screen and now we can finally get a peak at it with the first trailer for the film's sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. It's right there, above this. It actually exists!

It's been far too long since I watched Robert Rodriguez's original film, but it's definitely time to pop it back into the player or maybe even pick it up on Blu-ray. This one definitely looks like its carry on in the same foot steeps, though its possible that it's even more visually ridiculous than the first.

First teaser for Paddington Bear makes me want marmalade

As a young child the strange puppet/stop-motion/animated/paper cutout Paddington Bear show was totally my jam. The books were good too, but that show, with its wonderful narration and unique look enticed me. So it's wit...
