Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

I should admit this outright. Whether it's the nature of my job, or the seemingly endless deluge of Marvel Studios news that we write on everyday, I've succumbed to Marvel fatigue. That's why I was instantly drawn to Guardian...

I'm hooked on a feeling

Due to the lack of Netflix Instant additions this week, there won't be a Netflix Now. Although I do have to mention All Cheerleaders Die, a film I really enjoyed, was added. This is most likely the last week this is going to...

First official trailer for The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out of Water

It's astonishing that Spongebob Squarepants has made it this long and still has a crazy fandom surrounding it. I remember when it first started as part of the new wave of Nicktoons as Rugrats and the like were growing up. Bu...

First trailer for Into the Woods

Isn't it always the case. You put images up and then a trailer drops almost completely destroying the use of those images. Such is the case with Into the Woods, which has its first trailer here. It looks great, but why does it almost completely ignore the fact that it's a musical? The trailers for Annie did this too. Are studios afraid that people won't show up for musicals?

First teaser trailer for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

While I've never been drawn to the Night at the Museum series myself, I know a lot of people who enjoy them. They're a harmless set of films where Robin Williams gets to dress as a convincing Teddy Roosevelt, and there are a...

Best look at Into the Woods yet

It's hard not to be just a bit insanely excited about Disney's upcoming Into the Woods because it's fairy tales and every famous person every put into one movie. Then they sing! I mean what's not to be excited about. Jud...

Comic-Con trailer for Interstellar

With Matthew McConaughey's recent upswing, I've been more inclined to pay attention to his projects. One such project is Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. A science fiction film about wormholes and future corn, who knows wha...

Marvel's Ant-Man cast loses actors, confirms some roles

Marvel's Ant-Man has been in a bit of a pickle. After Edgar Wright's big exit, multiple rewrites, hiring Peyton Reed on as director, now the project is even more turmoil due to all of these hiccups. Thanks to the delayed prod...

First trailer for Horns, starring Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe's career has been in a bit of a flux in his post-Potter days. In what seemingly seems like Radcliffe searching for that one role that'll truly showcase his talents, he's been in several offbeat projects that...

See Into the Storm early and free

I wasn't paying much attention to Into the Storm until one of the trailers showed off a fire tornado. It's a very real, very scary thing that the film is going to use for our amusement. But whatever, I'm sure it's going to be...

First official trailer for Kevin Smith's Tusk

Regardless of our opinions on Kevin Smith here at Flixist, we always seem to find ourselves talking about him. It's because he's managed to turn his few successes into a huge marketing juggernaut with the "Askewniverse," pod...

Godzilla 2 bringing the big dogs Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah

Although a Godzilla sequel was announced shortly after the first film made Legendary Pictures a king-sized amount at the box office, they've finally confirmed it during their panel at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend. Didn't ...

First official trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

I love how they're claiming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is "The Defining Chapter" in the story since the book itself is only a fraction of all of this. In what is most likely the most bloated title of the serie...

Legendary rebooting King Kong with 'Skull Island' in 2016

Box Office Numbers: You Love Lucy

It looks like I bet on the wrong horse. In a neat turn of events, audiences flocked more toward the weird outsider film, Lucy, than the sweating mass of manmeat, Hercules. I'd like to take this time to thank America for being...

Comic-Con trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 photo
Comic-Con trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1
by Nick Valdez

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, but a lot is teased. If I had one qualm about the footage, it's going to take me a bit to get used to Julianne Moore's hair/wig. But I hope that discomfort goes away since I'm still not used to looking at Lawrence's fake hair. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st. Here's the cool Comic-Con poster.

First official trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road photo
First official trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road
by Nick Valdez

Thanks to the Mad Max: Fury Road panel at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, we've finally gotten our first trailer for the long awaited, long delayed, long in trouble sequel to George Miller's original trilogy. It's striking, loud, and perfectly captures the tone of the original films (with some disgusting beauty to boot). Some of the visuals looked off the first time I viewed the trailer, but watching it over again I realized I was off my rocker. There's just some weird CG here and there.

Starring Tom Hardy as the titular Max, a man just trying to survive without his wife and child, and Charlize Theron as Furiosa, a woman who just wants to get home, Fury Road is essentially one long chase scene in the desert. That sounds fantastic. 

Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters May 15th, 2015 but I wish it came sooner. Here's the synopsis and character posters:
