Aubrey Plaza to voice Grumpy Cat in upcoming Grumpy Cat movie

Look, the world doesn't need a Grumpy Cat movie. Grumpy Cat was fun for like a week in 2012. Besides, basically all cats are grumpy, that's why they're so great. Anyway, regardless of what I think, a Grumpy Cat Lifetime Chris...

Folks, is this real? Is this truly, truly real? It seems 20th Century Fox is finally fulfilling the promise made long ago (which possibly is attributed to the test footage "leak" a while back) with an X-Men spin-off starring ...

I have a long-standing history with Kevin Smith, dating back to high school when I first saw the erroneously named "Jersey Trilogy." When Red State came out in 2011, I was intrigued to see what Smith could do with both t...

Everyone, I really really like donuts. Whether they're spelled "doughnuts" (i.e. the wrong way) or "donuts" (the right way), they're just always so damn tasty. You know what's not tasty? Ghostbusters. That film never inspired...

Review: The Guest

When I saw the first trailer for The Guest I wasn't particularly interested in the film. It looked generic, bland, and seemed like yet another trite thriller that comes out around Halloween for a cheap buck. But like You're N...

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass returning for Bourne photo
Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass returning for Bourne
by Matthew Razak

Remember when Jeremy Renner took over the Jason Bourne franchise and was going to basically do a whole new set of trilogies? Yea. Not so fast. Deadline is confirming a rumor that went around last year that Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass will be returning to the franchise and stealing the Renner sequel's release date of summer 2016. Where the direct sequel to The Bourne Legacy is still in the works with director Justin Lin helming it appears it won't get released until after Damon's Bourne 5

Now this isn't all bad. Evidently Universal is hoping they can expand the franchise and have characters from both films crossing over with each other developing a Marvel-like universe on a smaller scale and with less spandex. 

I wasn't particularly enthused by Renner's turn in the franchise so I'm happy to see both Damon and Greengrass return. Hopefully this means so awesome Renner/Damon action in the future.

The Mockingjay lives in this newest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1
by Nick Valdez

Looks like a girl, but she's a flame. As Flixist's resident Young Adult book advisor, I love me some Hunger Games (and will always exploit Alicia Keys' once hit single) and I'm glad the newest trailer finally shows off how different the final book in the series is from other copycats out there. 

Watch the trailer. It's so good. This'll probably be the last you can see for awhile before they start spoiling everything too. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 opens November 21st.
