First Tak3n trailer lacks anything getting taken

After Taken 2 was easily the most disappointing thing to hit movie screens in years (Sean's review is far too kind) and Liam Neeson came out saying he probably wouldn't do another I was pretty happy that we wouldn't be ...

First trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice photo
First trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice
by Nick Valdez

Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel Inherent Vice might just be the craziest, and best thing to come out this year. Just by looking at this trailer with its unique style, stupidly talented cast (Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Benecio Del Toro, Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterson, and Martin Short!), and it's great feeling vibe overall. 

There might be something sinister underneath, but this is a great first look. Starring Phoenix as a muttonchopped private eye who gets roped into stopping a kidnapping by his ex, I can't wait to see what else lurks. Inherent Vice releases December 12th.

Latest Jupiter Ascending trailer has the plot details

Jupiter Ascending may be the most unique science fantasy coming our way. Too bad the trailers don't really paint it in a good light. As the latest film from the Wachowskis, we should expect all kinds of craziness. The visual...

Trailer for romcom Elsa & Fred starring Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer

You're never too old for a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. That's seriously all this movie is. The same old MPDG song and dance; a grumpy man finds pseudo-salvation in the romance of a quirky, happy-go-lucky possibly mentally unstab...

Newest trailer for Big Hero 6 continues to be adorable

With how each Big Hero 6 trailer focuses on how adorable the main fluffy robot Baymax is, I'm a little worried about the overall film. I'm hoping for a Frozen-esque switcheroo that's mainly to get kid butts in those sea...

The Babadook's trailer is going to creep you out

The Babadook has been getting great buzz since Sundance and judging from this trailer there's a reason why. Stark and taught the film looks damn scary as it relies on tension and style to scare over blood and gore. I'm ...

Red Band trailer for V/H/S: Viral

The V/H/S series has always scared the heck out of me. I don't why these films hit me harder than any other found footage film, but they just do. I think it might be the static in between vignettes as they give me the feelin...

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.

First trailer for John Wick starring Keanu Reeves and a puppy

John Wick has no right looking as interesting as it does. Revenge thrillers are always hit or miss. You take an aging actor, and send him out to kill some dudes. Sometimes it's goofy fun (Man of Fire), sometimes it's goofy f...
