Extended trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron

Thanks to Hydra Marvel had a bit of a leak last week and the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron hit the web early and the big reveal during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which you should be watching) was dulled. Scrambl...

Divergent sequel Insurgent to be in 3D

It's hard to think about anything else than how much Marvel is rocking our faces right now, but remember Lionsgate does enjoy monopolizing the YA movie scene. Hunger Games may be dominant, but Divergent did well too...

The Avengers may look different after Avengers: Age of Ultron

So with that darker trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron and Robert Downey Jr. showing up in Captain America 3, it sounds like Marvel has some interesting plans for the future of the films (and looking at their slate for Phase...

Agents of SHIELD to show off newer Age of Ultron footage

Did you check out that cool teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron yet? If not, get on that and come back. Okay? Wasn't that pretty neat with the Pinocchio song and fat Iron Man suit? Since this teaser was leaked early du...

First teaser trailer for Insidious: Chapter 3

I've never been truly interested in the Insidious series until now. You know why? There's a scene in this teaser where a girl learns her house is haunted through texts...on her T MOBILE SIDEKICK. Oh my god. Insidious: Chapter 3 releases May 29th next year. Check out the poster in the gallery.

Well I guess no one has to watch Agents of SHIELD on the 28th anymore. Thanks to a snafu leading to a leaked teaser earlier today (which we didn't post because Flixist doesn't dabble in the dark legal arts), Marvel has gone ahead and officially released the first teaser for the much anticipated Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron

We've got a darker tone, James Spader as the killer robot Ultron, and Marvel's version of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Oh right, and HULKBUSTER YEEEEEEEEEEEAH. 

Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1, 2015.

Saw producers are ready for more Saw

How many Saw films were there? It seems like twenty were crammed into the franchise's six year run (2004-2010), but now producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules feel like a four-six year break is long enough for people to want mor...

Terminator: Genisys Will Likely Be PG-13

Slight disappointment coming from me (and other fans, I'm sure) as it's been revealed the next installment of the Terminator franchise — which, apparently, isn't a sequel or a reboot, it's just kind of there — wil...

Rumor: Avengers 3 may feature lesser known heroes

There have been murmurings that the third Avengers film was going to be split up into two movies (making it the third and fourth, I suppose), but they were just that. Well, a new rumor is lending that a bit of credence. ...

This trailer for Horrible Bosses 2 has more jokes

I've been against Horrible Bosses 2 from the beginning. Comedy sequels rarely work, and if they do it's almost like a miracle. Every trailer I've seen for this film has a few jokes that make me laugh, and a few that rub me t...

UPDATE: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel releasing to Netflix and theaters simultaneously photo
UPDATE: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel releasing to Netflix and theaters simultaneously
by Nick Valdez

UPDATE: According to the good folks at Variety, it looks like Weinstein Company's deal with Netflix has rubbed some theater chains the wrong way. AMC, Regal, Cinemark, and Carmike have all refused to show the sequel. Each theater claims that a theater screen is the best to view the content and not one on smartphones. Check out the whole Variety article for all the little business details, but the important thing to note is these chains have taken a firm stance against day-and-date releases. Interesting stuff. 

Now this is something I didn't see coming. First of all, we have some news on the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Sequel announced a bit ago. It's titled Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend (based on Wang Du Lu's Iron Knight, Silver Vase which in turn inspired the title of my latest rap album, Dairy Queen, Rainbow Carnival) and will release to IMAX theaters in 2015. 

Now onto the crazy part. The sequel is set to release to Netflix Instant at the same time (with the word "exclusive" being thrown around like crazy) thanks to a deal signed by The Weinstein Company and Netflix. Just, wow. If this succeeds (and there're no signs it won't thanks to the current success of simultaneous VOD/Theater releases), just imagine what this could lead to. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend releases August 28, 2015. 

We've got our first look at Donnie Yen and Michelle Yeoh too! So cool.

Zombieland 2 is undead, gets new writer

First Tak3n trailer lacks anything getting taken photo
First Tak3n trailer lacks anything getting taken
by Matthew Razak

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 seeing another Taken movie. Way to crush my happiness, world. Above you'll find the trailer for the entirely unnecessary, but awesomely titled, Tak3n.

I will say that this looks better than the second, though director Olivier Megaton is the guy who ruined the Transporter series so I don't have that much faith. I suppose they're at least taking it in a bit different direction and hopefully the story won't be as terrible as the last one. The plot seems a bit more cohesive, and hopefully the action actually holds together this time. I think the most important part here is that Neeson is actually a badass, unlike the last film where he just felt old and dumb.

New poster below.
