Netflix Now: #ThanksObama Edition

Well, the POTUS with the MOSTUS has joined Twitter. There's some kind of gag in here somewhere, but this all seems way too surreal to be funny. In the few hours he's been on Twitter, he's already taken a jab at Bill Clinton, ...

First trailer for Cooties starring Elijah Wood and zombie fourth graders

I don't think I've ever talked about how much I love Elijah Wood's career. He's willing to take chances on the weirdest, and most far out projects. He doesn't always succeed, but he seems like the type of actor that's game fo...

Transformers sequels have found their writers, including Robert Kirkman

Remember that weird sounding "writers room" Paramount was trying to set up for Transformers sequels and spin-offs Jackson wrote about some time ago? To make the whole thing weirder, we now know who's a part of it. Seemingly f...

Newest Pan trailer looks gorgeous

I'm not sure what to think about yet another reboot/prequel/whatever the hell this is, but Pan looks amazing. It's directed by Joe Wright, it's got a great cast with Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, and Garrett Hedlund, and I don't...

Newest trailer for Pixels is gamey

I have a hard time figuring out exactly who Pixels is made for. Is it for the man children that Adam Sandler has spent his entire career trying to sell to, or is it for folks who'd recognize videogames in general? In the same...

First official trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

Although I don't remember liking The Maze Runner too much, I did appreciate what it did differently from all of the other Young Adult book films floating around. A testosterone riddled film full of run and gun dumb action. It...

Box Office Numbers: Pitchy, dawg

Like most folks last weekend, I was torn between seeing Mad Max and Pitch Perfect 2. With only enough time and money allowing only one of the two, I chose Fury Road because my roommates have done the same. I was originally go...

First outrageous trailer for Jem and the Holograms

I've made it no secret that I've been looking forward to Jem and Holograms ever since it was announced (and put in production just a month later), and after the awesome set of images we got the other day. I was really hoping ...

These Jem and Holograms movie images are outrageous

Ever since Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) announced he was working on a live action Jem and the Holograms movie, I've been glued to the computer screen waiting for more info. Luckily we got a new batch of images plus a re...

Box Office Numbers: Avenge Me!

Hey, I finally saw a movie in theaters! Meaning I helped Age of Ultron make even more money as it topped the box office for a second week with $77 million. It'll be interesting how this weekend turns out since we have two big...

Netflix Now: The King Has Returned Edition

Wow, so it's been three months since I last wrote one of these. Big apologies for that since lots of life stuff came up at once. I actually moved cross country (from San Antonio, TX to Astoria, NY) and it has taken me awhile ...

Captain America: Civil War reveals its huge cast

If you thought Avengers: Age of Ultron had a huge amount of characters, then Civil War is going to blow your mind. With the hugest cast of any Marvel movie so far, we've got newcomers, returning characters, newly revealed cha...

Watch Arnold Schwarzenegger recreate most of his films in under 6 minutes

Has anyone been watching the Late Late Show with James Corden? I've lost interest since Craig Ferguson left, but the guy has had some good bits. The most impressive one of the bunch is "Roll Call" where he gets a willing cele...

X-Men: Days of Future Past is getting a 'Rogue Cut'

One of my biggest issues with X-Men: Days of Future Past was how many characters it tried to squeeze into its movie (which is why I'm always worrying about the sequel, Apocalypse, which is ramping up that number everyday). An...

John Wick 2 is happening, celebrate good times

People keep asking if I'm back. Yeah, I'm thinking I'm back. We didn't review John Wick here on Flixist (which was a major oversight on my part because I saw it during my vacation that weekend and totally didn't write on it...

Here's a good look at Suicide Squad's full line up

Now that Suicide Squad's filming is underway, and we've seen Jared Leto's "damaged" Joker (which led to all sorts of tattooed shenanigans). So now we get a full look at the entire cast in costume! Couldn't tell you who was wh...

Here's our first look at TMNT 2's Casey Jones

I don't think we got around to this news, but joining the first film's cast of lovable giant mutant monsters, Tyler Perry (of all people), and Laura F**king Linney in an undisclosed role is Arrow's Stephen Amell as Casey...

These sexy Magic Mike XXL posters are giving me the vapors

You thought Magic Mike brought all the boys to the yard? Well, we haven't seen anything yet. Starring Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Kevin Nash (lol), Adam Rodriguez, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and even Donald Glover (...

First look at Jubilee and Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse

Every time I think X-Men: Apocalypse is packed with too many characters (or cameos at this rate), I look at their outfits and oh my jeebus do I change my mind instantly. I couldn't be happier that Apocalypse takes place ...

Snaxist: Kellogg's Avengers: Age of Ultron Cereal

This is the kind of promotion I've been waiting for. When I started Snaxist with Max Roahrig (RIP) some years ago with Denny's ill advised Hobbit Breakfast Menu, it was the fact that'd I'd be able to talk about cereal someday...

Jump Street to get female led spin-off and Men in Black crossover

Sony's really putting all of their eggs in one basket. Banking on the few films that work, Sony's slowing turning all of their properties (and future properties) into huge universes. Starting with Spider-Man, continuing on wi...

First trailer for The Last Witch Hunter starring Vin Diesel

To me, Vin Diesel can do no wrong. Regardless of his odder career choices in the past, I've always dug his genuine love for his work. He's a nerdy dude who loves trying out crazier roles and his latest film seems like the cra...

Death Note film gets kickass director

If you're not aware the American adaptation of Death Note, a manga about a kid finding a book that magically kills people when you write their name in it, has been floating around for quite some time. The last we heard of thi...

First trailer for Barely Lethal sure is lethal

I'm immediately interested whenever A24 picks up a film. They've done such a good job of picking out the more interesting and experimental properties like Ex Machina, Spring Breakers, Obvious Child, and so on. Their latest fi...

Box Office Numbers: China Still Cool

Furious 7 has raked in over $323 million in China, making it China's highest grossing film ever. The previous highest grossing film was Transformers: Age of Extinction and it had to pander to the foreign audience to get there...

First trailer for Black Mass starring Johnny Depp

While Johnny Depp hasn't lost his taste for dressing up in weird outfits, it looks like he's finally using his powers for good again. Black Mass, based on the exploits of Whitey Bulger, a gangster who became an FBI informant ...

Native American actors walk off the set of Adam Sandler's latest terrible idea

Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, and just when I thought Adam Sandler's films looked a bit interesting, something like this happens. He's insulted people in the past, but it has never been to this degree, an...

First trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's next The Visit

M. Night Shyamalan has had quite a lopsided career. I tend to dig more of his efforts than not, but after The Last Airbender and After Earth I'm not so sure. Maybe a return to his horror thriller roots might do the trick? Thi...

First trailer for Mamoru Hosoda's next anime film, The Boy and The Beast

Mamaro Hosoda's films are always triumphs of animation. Known for Wolf Children, Summer Wars, and even The Digimon Movie, his films have a distinct and flowing art style that's always very pleasing to the eye. On top of that,...

E.L. James' husband writing Fifty Shades sequel

I understand giving an author some say over their book's adaptation, but this is getting ridiculous. It seems that the production of these films is so awful, any of the slightly talented people involved are being chased off b...

Lord and Miller working on an animated Spider-Man film

It seems like I'm talking about Spider-Man every other day, so I care a little less every time. But you know what brings me back into the fold? Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the guys who're pretty much involved with every movie...

Next couple of LEGO movies get new release dates

If you were hankerin' for more LEGO movies, we're getting a huge chunk of them all at once. Since WB's first big animated effort (for its smaller affiliate group), The LEGO Movie, did so well in theaters, we're not only getti...

Newest Fantastic Four trailer finally shows off the goods

The first Fant4stic trailer was more hit or miss than anything. I dug the science fiction overlay, but it was missing all of the FF's inherent goofballery. This newest trailer doesn't have any fun either, but it's not trying...

These Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice posters are badass

So what did you think of that first trailer? The majority seems to swing toward apathy, but I really dug it. It looks a bit weird, more sterile than anything, but I'm hoping that'll ease up during the year. If the film can ca...

Box Office Numbers: Billion Dollar Family

Last week, Furious 7 crossed a billion (with a b) dollars worldwide over 17 days. That makes it Universal's first film in history to cross that mark through its first run in theaters. Also, it's now the fastest (heh) to reach...

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...
