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...

Here's the US Trailer for Ghibli's When Marnie Was There

Since Studio Ghibli is still stuck in purgatory, and haven't announced a new feature since all of that financial weirdness reared its ugly head some time ago, When Marnie Was There might possibly be the studio's final film. ...

Newest Mad Max: Fury Road trailer has all the furious roads

Do you need any more convincing? At this point, you're either as hyped as I am for the next Mad Max or you're super uncool. But if you needed just one more trailer, than the latest one featuring footage of the old films will do just the trick. Mad Max: Fury Road opens May 15th.

Trailer for Justice League: Gods & Monsters is better than that other leaked video

So the other day, Zack Snyder tweeted out a short teaser to promote the five second tease of a trailer that WB wants you to go and buy IMAX tickets to see. Since that whole situation was ridiculous, we kept ourselves clean o...

Just debuted at Star Wars Celebration: a suspenseful new teaser for #TheForceAwakens.

Posted by Star Wars on Thursday, April 16, 2015

We may have had a not-trailer launch today, but far more importantly we have an actual trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. See this one didn't need a trailer for the trailer and we're still really excited about it. It's pretty easy to see why with all the pew, pew, pew and light saberring (OK, actually a lack of light saberring in this one). 

It's also exciting to get our first look at the OG actors. Mark Hammill's monologue is a little on the nose, but they're still cool and seeing Vader's helmet pretty much amped up my excitement to eleven. Considering the hype machine is just getting started on this one and the Star Wars Celebration is going on right now we're sure to be seeing a crap ton of Star Wars stuff before Force Awakens open on December 18, 2015.

No Warner Brothers/DC, we're not posting Batman v Superman's trailer for a trailer photo
No Warner Brothers/DC, we're not posting Batman v Superman's trailer for a trailer
by Matthew Razak

Look, we know that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's trailer is a big deal, but releasing a teaser trailer for that trailer is absolutely ridiculous. Back when this trend first got off the ground we thought it was ridiculous and now it is even more ridiculous as almost every big blockbuster releasing hypes itself up with trailers of trailers. 

We understand the "need" (more like a compulsion) to hype up things that movie studios face, but we're not going to join in. We're hyped enough as it is and 10 seconds of not-footage is just being ridiculous. The studios understand the fanboy mentality of wanting to pour over every detail and the Internet's need to obsess about something for an hour before it moves onto the next something so they pull this. A teaser for a teaser. It's ludicrous and we just honestly think it's dumb. You can go watch it on your own, of course, but as far as Flixist is concerned we're continuing our stance of not advertising for what is basically an ad. Trailers already have enough problems on their own these days with over reveals and basically showing entire films so trailers for trailers is just a line we're going to stand on this side of while we wait a few days to see the actual trailer. 

And yes, we see the hypocrisy and conflict in posting something that hypes up the trailer anyway, but without saying something we sound a little tone deaf to the film industry, which we're not.

Results trailer looks weird as it should

Anyone who caught writer/director Andrew Bujalski's Computer Chess knows that he's got a very, shall we say, interesting take on the romantic comedy genre -- in that he almost completely destroys it. His newest fil...

Here's the first teaser trailer for Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser

Newest Terminator: Genisys trailer sure has a lot of spoilers

While I've been all for Terminator: Genisys' kitchen sink approach in rebooting the series, maybe I've spoken too soon. Whoever's marketing the film just went and completely spoiled the film's big twist for the film's second...

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...

Pierce Brosnan aims lots of guns in new Survivor trailer

First trailer for Masterminds lets you know the name is ironic

Masterminds looks like one of those based-on-a-true-story movies where they basically said that a bank robbery happened once so that means that the film is based on it. It also looks pretty funny, if unoriginal. Great c...

Spectre teaser trailer brings Bond back photo
Spectre teaser trailer brings Bond back
by Matthew Razak

OH MY GOD I CAN'T EVEN FUNCTION RIGHT NOW.

Where to start on this Bond teaser. How about it's frickin' perfect? Let's get the Blofeld (Cristoph Waltz) awesomeness out of the way and the veiled reference to him not being in Bond films thanks to legal issues. I mean just perfect. And once again, wonderful execution of the Bond theme and the fact that his parents and Skyfall are being brought back into it and the Aston Martin and... and... and... everything.

The teaser image and poster were great throw backs, but this is pure genius. 

Four new images from the set in Mexico also cropped up from those lucky enough to be there covering some of the filming. Check them out below.
