E.L. James' husband writing Fifty Shades sequel

I understand giving an author some say over their book's adaptation, but this is getting ridiculous. It seems that the production of these films is so awful, any of the slightly talented people involved are being chased off b...

Lord and Miller working on an animated Spider-Man film

It seems like I'm talking about Spider-Man every other day, so I care a little less every time. But you know what brings me back into the fold? Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the guys who're pretty much involved with every movie...

Next couple of LEGO movies get new release dates

If you were hankerin' for more LEGO movies, we're getting a huge chunk of them all at once. Since WB's first big animated effort (for its smaller affiliate group), The LEGO Movie, did so well in theaters, we're not only getti...

Newest Fantastic Four trailer finally shows off the goods

The first Fant4stic trailer was more hit or miss than anything. I dug the science fiction overlay, but it was missing all of the FF's inherent goofballery. This newest trailer doesn't have any fun either, but it's not trying...

These Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice posters are badass

So what did you think of that first trailer? The majority seems to swing toward apathy, but I really dug it. It looks a bit weird, more sterile than anything, but I'm hoping that'll ease up during the year. If the film can ca...

First officially official teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Thanks to the leak a few days ago, WB was forced to reveal their hand early before their big planned event in theaters. Everyone has opinions about this, and most of the Flixist staff here really didn't like its overtly dark...

Newest Spider-Man film will not be another origin story

Thanks to Sony's Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I've spent far more time writing about comic book movies than I'd like. But I couldn't help it either because Spider-Man's muh dude. After spending some time ...

This Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot busts up the joint

I sat through most of the MTV Movie Awards this year. Every year there's a big trailer reveal or something to look forward to, and that's why I'll sit through it for you guys, but this year was a whole lot of nothin' in term...

Newest Ant-Man trailer is a great do-over

Remember how badly that first Ant-Man trailer was received? Mismanaged tone, mismanaged editing, and the whole thing was all over the place. This trailer, which is now the "first" trailer, is essentially a big mulligan and i...

Here's our first look at Ant-Man's Yellowjacket

With Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out in May, I've kind of forgotten Ant-Man comes out just two months after. It's almost like Marvel has too as the brunt of the advertising budget has been spent on getting Ultron out there...

The Dark Tower gets new life at Sony

I know, I know. You've heard it all before. Stephen King's massive, world-spanning book series The Dark Tower will be made into a movie or TV series or both and Ron Howard is on board to produce and possibly direct. Well...

Angel joins the already jampacked X-Men: Age of Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse, the set in the 80s sequel to Days of Future Past, seems like it's adding new mutants every day. We missed the last one, Jubilee, and we're here to remedy that with Bryan Singer's latest announcement that An...

Here's our first good look at Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Though Paul Bettany's Vision (the humanized form of Tony Stark's JARVIS A.I.) has been teased in past trailers, and shoved off to the side in the posters, we've yet to get a good look at the character. Thanks to a range of En...

Disney also making a live action Pinocchio

Cartoons are getting live action remakes so often, we're going to need a new term for it. I'm thinking "live-actioning." Not the easiest word to say, but I'll just keep using it until someone suggests a better one (do so in t...

Newest Deadpool image poops out a plot synopsis

This just seems so unreal. Deadpool releases February 12 next year.  Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wad...

Joss Whedon says Avengers: Age of Ultron won't have a post-credits scene

With many rumors and news floating around, it's hard to gauge what's real and what's false with these Marvel films. But I'm very inclined to believe the director of one of the films himself. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly...

Warner Bros developing Five Nights at Freddy's movie

Every day I get a bit older, and every time something like this happens, that fact really sinks in. In less than a year, Scott Cawthon's Five Night's at Freddy's videogame series (which follows a night security guard watching...

So with everything under the sun getting a big screen adaptation these days, it's high time for Play-Doh to get in the game. No, really. No, seriously. Like, really really. According to Deadline, Hasbro approached Fox and Pau...

Now that Jennifer Lawrence is a huge Hollywood star, she's ready to leave her more embarrassing roles behind. Haha, no I'm sure that's not the case. With heavy hitters like Oscar Isaac joining the cast of the next X-Men seque...
