Is there any actor that you'll show up to the theater for?

Time was if you shoved Tom Cruise into a movie and emblazoned all the marketing with his name bigger than the name of the movie you'd pretty much have a guaranteed number one opening weekend, and most likely a box office hit. That time has ...

Review: American Made

At this point there's an entire adult generation who thinks of Contra as a retro video game first and a group of right wing militants backed by the US government second. That simple fact might lead you to be surprised that the CIA, White Ho...

In time for the 4th of July: Top Gun: Maverick

TC, that's Tom Cruise, says it'll be called Top Gun: Maverick. Aka, him, aka TC. Don't matter that TC's producers say it's just Top Gun 2, but no matter, with the strength of Xenu behind him, it shall go as he has forsworn! In other news, P...

Review: The Mummy

Everybody wants a superhero movie universe now. Thanks to Marvel's insane success at stringing together a cinematic comic universe, every movie studio out there wants a piece of the pie. You can't really blame them. Cinematic universes put ...

Things not looking so hot for The Mummy

Universal studios desperately wants to launch a movie universe, and they're plan is to do it through their universal monster properties. The first film in this franchise is this weekend's The Mummy. But it appears there may not be any big b...

Tom Cruise: Top Gun Sequel is on like Donkey Kong

Though industry rags (yes you, Variety) have yet to run with this blasphemy, reputable rags like USA Today are reporting on the revelation that aired on some little known news program from ... and let me confirm I'm getting this right with ...

Review: Jack Reacher: Never go Back

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back should have gone back to the formula that made the original Jack Reacher work. Audiences, only familiar with the character through the first movie (and not the Lee Childs book series) may find the movie conf...

Every clip of Tom Cruise running in a movie, EVER

Maybe it’s a coincidence that Burger Fiction published this Tom Cruise running compilation a week befoe Jack Reacher: Never Go Back drops in theaters, maybe not. But I definitely got a targeted Reacher ad when I played the video. On t...

John Wick 2 has a new poster with sexy Keanu Reeves

Here at Flixist, we appreciate the fine art of releasing one sheet teaser posters featuring an aging star hinting at everything (read: being incredibly vague) to come. Usually, this specific genre involves said aging actor gripping a gun an...

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back has new poster with less back

When last we heard from Tom Cruise, aka Jack Reacher, he had just released an itty bitty trailer to further whet our already dripping appetites for the impending release of the next adaptation of the Lee Child's series. Along with the trail...

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back gets an even shorter trailer

Possibly owing to the 24-hour news coverage of the Olympics, Paramount has released a new and improved (read: less to watch) spot for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. It's basically a condensed, possibly less powerful version of the original th...

Tom Cruise sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back has a trailer

Since last we saw Jack Reacher in theaters in 2012, Jack Reacher has returned to the printed page four times in Never Go Back (2013), Personal (2014), Make Me (2015), and Night School (2015). Maybe that's because author Lee Child and his pu...

Christopher McQuarrie confirms he's directing M:I 6

One of the bigger surprises in my movie going life is the resurgence of the Mission: Impossible franchise. I could have sworn to you that this thing was dead in the water after the fourth film, but it blazed back into action with M:I -...

Review: Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

When Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol ended, I couldn't fathom how a sequel could top it. It went so far over the top that I truly believed it was un-toppable. (Turns out, I actually wrote something to that effect in a b...

Edge of Tomorrow 2 being pitched by Tom Cruise

Without a doubt one of my favorite films of last year was Edge of Tomorrow (also known as Live. Die. Repeat.) It was a sleeper hit and delivered one of the more original sci-fi films we'd seen in a while. While the film's concept seems...

Tom Cruise is a Scientology Super Saiyan

Tom Cruise held his breathe for six minutes during the filming of Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation. It was for some underwater part and he actually did it leading us to believe that he is some sort of Scientology super saiyen. Who knows ...

Megan's Top 15 Movies of 2014

2014 was a pretty great year for movies, so coming up with a year end list was pretty tough for me. Originally I thought I'd just do top 5, and then top 10... but no. It had to be top 15 because I saw so many awesome films last year, and it...

Check out this cool Edge of Tomorrow concept art

I haven't seen Edge of Tomorrow for myself (maybe I'll see it tomorrow), but I've read the book and the adaptation sounds great according to Matt's recent review. If this concept art done by Kevin Jenkins is anything to go by, the film look...

Second trailer for Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise

With all of the reboots and sequels abound, Edge of Tomorrow looks refreshingly unique. Based on Kiroshi Sakurazaka's manga All You Need is Kill, Tom Cruise plays a soldier who repeats the same day every time he's killed in battle. As note...

Mission: Impossible 5 gets 2015 release date

I don't know how many more times I can complain about how bloated of a year 2015 is going to be. You've got a new Avengers, Jurassic World, Batman vs. Superman, a new Terminator, Ant-Man, a new Fantastic Four, a film based on World of Warcr...

 
 
Oblivion Review photo

Review: Oblivion

A hard-boiled science-fiction in this day and age is somewhat hard to come by. We've had the cerebral Inception, among others, but nothing truly pure sci-fi for some time. Oblivion then is, at the very least, a promise of a scienc...

New Oblivion TV spots have the moon getting blowed up

There's something about mayhem perpetrated against the moon that I find kind of absurdly funny, whether it's threats to blow it up or Chairface Chippendale trying to write his name on it. In this new TV spot for Oblivion, a character nonch...

This week in Tom Cruise Runs From Things, we have the new trailer for Oblivion. And if you had even the slightest bit of interest in the film, I suggest you don't watch the trailer as it finds it fit to tell the entire film's story (comple...

Oblivion has gone from quite the mystery in its first trailer to quite the intriguing film in this one (HD here). We learn a lot more about the film's plot and the "enemy" that Tom Cruise will be fighting in this dystopian take o...

Review: Jack Reacher

There was a time not so long ago when we were all OK with our action movies being stupid. A time before the likes of The Dark Knight or Skyfall or even the deceptively smart Avengers. A time when all an action movie needed was a b...

Even though Tom Cruise is busy taking five guys at the same time, we now have a trailer for his next film, Oblivion. Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy), Oblivion looks like a strange mash-up of Wall-E and The Omega Man. Whatev...
