New Suspiria trailer keeps in step with the original

First look Alicia Vikander as new Lara Croft, Tomb Raider

It's been a long time and many children later since Angelina Jolie donned the tank top and short shorts of Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider. So, needless to say, we are owed, nay due a remake, or a reboot, or a relaunch, or something. I forgot o...

 
 
 
 
Chips Trailer photo

First trailer for the CHiPs remake is pretty bad

Joining shows getting remade for the screen like The A-Team, 21 Jump Street, and Baywatch, is CHiPs, a show practically everyone forgot about. And like 21 Jump Street, this new Chips is trying to be a goofy buddy comedy that would reinvigor...

Newest Beauty and the Beast clip finally features singing

I've been looking forward to Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast remake for a while now, and despite a funky looking Beast, every bit of footage we've seen has been fantastic. But Disney has smartly held off the film's all-important s...

Disney is working on a live-action Snow White too

Since Disney figured out we're willing to spend the same amount of money on retreads (i.e. Maleficent, Cinderella, Pete's Dragon, and The Jungle Book) as we do on original ideas, the newest wave of giving every one of their animated films a...

Poster for new Ducktales series full of ducks and tails

Ducktales is coming back because there's nothing original anymore. In fairness, if there is any Disney property I'd like to see back in from the heyday of their Saturday morning cartoon glory it's probably Ducktales, and from this post...

First trailer for Emma Watson starring Beauty and the Beast

I'm still weirded out by the fact that Disney is making adaptations of their adaptations of famous fairy tales, but so far they've been pretty good or even revolutionary so let's roll with it. The next one up is Beauty and the Bea...

Jungle Book character posters full of actors

When you've packed your movie full of famous people but none of them are going to be seen there's only one solution: take dramatic photos of those famous people and put their animal characters with them. Clearly Disney knew this and we have...

John Woo's next movie will be remake of The Killer

Rumors of John Woo's action classic The Killer getting a U.S. remake (because we'd hate to just watch the original) have been occurring since before Flixist even existed. Directors have been attached and then left, a poster was made, a...

First trailer for Disney's live action The Jungle Book

While I've been wary of Disney's current affinity for live action takes on their classic animated movies, I have to admit this looks pretty neat. Based more off of Rudyard Kipling's novel than the animated original, the Jon Favreau (Iron Ma...

Review: The Transporter Refueled

Many people brush off the Transporter films as crappy, but the first two are actually great examples of 2000s action. The first was around for the birth of the cheap European action flick. Taken also falls into this category ...

Theatrical release animated Scooby-Doo movie in the works

At some point we all had to admit to ourselves that Matthew Lillard, the man born to play Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, had aged out of the role. Thanks to that we all knew that no more live action Scooby-Doo films would be coming. How could you ...

Review: The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Does anyone below the age of 60 have super fond memories of the original TV show The Man From U.N.C.L.E.? I'm sure they're out there, but the new movie remake can't really be hitting on the nostalgia gas that hard when half the audience of ...
