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

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/pornog...

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...

Listen to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rap "Shell Shocked"

First teaser for Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal

First trailer for Predestination, starring Ethan Hawke

First teaser trailer for Conjuring spin-off, Annabelle

Because I'm feeling far colder toward spin-offs and sequels lately, I still can't believe this exists and is coming to theaters rather than home video. I know production of these films is always quick, but man it feels like ...

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
