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...

Here's Avengers: Age of Ultron's San Diego Comic-Con panel

The lucky few who went to San Diego Comic-Con got to see a bit of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and while we won't get any of that footage officially for awhile, here's a look at the rest of their Comic-Con panel. Notable bits in...

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 series, the third film takes place after the events of The Desolation of Smaug as Bilbo finds himself in the middle of a fight between Smaug, Orcs, Sauron, and many other things. 

Sorry, I'm just not into these films so I'm not the proper fellow to tell you why any of this is notable. Help me out, community! The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters December 17th.

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

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:

Full trailer for Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal

Remember that very brief, but very awesome teaser for Nightcrawler the other day? It had a twisted tone, and sickly looking Gyllenhaal all to great effect. Now that we have the full trailer for the film, I'm still very excit...

First Red Band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Hot Tub Time Machine is an acquired taste. By that I mean it's not particularly funny or interesting, yet folks seem attached to it anyhow. Now that John Cusack has dropped out (I guess once he realized the film really isn't...

First trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey
by Nick Valdez

So, here we are. Although Fifty Shades of Grey will never be the movie you want (but if you wanted straight porn, it's out there already), I can promise this trailer at least captures the tone of your favorite romance/pornography series. Starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as two attractive people in a boy meets frumpy girl, tells her she's not frumpy, and then goes all S&M on her for three books kind of story. 

Fifty Shades of Grey climaxes Valentine's Day 2015.

Full trailer for Dear White People is still pretty funny

The first teaser (and it's title) for Dear White People managed to catch our attention here at Flixist due to its biting jokes and intelligent race commentary. It looks like that trend continues with this full trailer. With ...

New clip from Honeymoon is intriguing (and not spoiler-y)

Although I never reviewed it, Honeymoon was the best film I saw at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. It's a cabin in the woods sort of film with some nice creep factor and incredible chemistry between the two main charact...

Full Japanese trailer for Ghibli's When Marnie Was There

Studio Ghibli's films are so damn pretty, I don't even need to understand what anyone is saying. That's why this Japanese trailer for their latest film, When Marnie Was There, is perfect for me. In much better quality than t...

First trailer for Predestination, starring Ethan Hawke

The Spierig brothers' Predestination was a complete surprise when I saw it during SXSW. With a nice twist on science fiction, the lead up to the finale was entertaining. Based on Robert A. Heinlein's "All You Zombies," Prede...

First trailer for Ouija, a movie someone thought was a good idea

Keira Knightley and Chloe Moretz slack off in 'Laggies' trailer

First teaser trailer for Paradise Lost starring Benecio Del Toro

I was raised to be a huge fan of Benecio Del Toro. My dad loves him because he's one of the first Latino actors to hit the big time, and he wasn't part of the Latin Boom in the mid 90s either (Although that boom did bri...

First full trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 is just adorable photo
First full trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 is just adorable
by Nick Valdez

When I posted the teaser trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 some time ago, I loved how cute the whole thing was. Yet, this first full trailer rings kind of hollow. As it completely relies on that cuteness, more cracks are starting to show. Sure Baymax (Scott Adsit as the squishy robot) will get a lot of chuckles out of me, but nothing else sticks out right now. 

But with this plot (a man in a kabuki mask is attacking their city with nanobots), and the reveal of the other heroes (played by Damon Wayans Jr., Jamie Chung, TJ Miller, and Genesis Rodriguez), I'm hoping there's still something hidden away. 

Big Hero 6 releases November 7th.
