Review: Thor: Ragnarok

While I like the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall, I've never been that interested in the Thor movies. I love the Walt Simonson run on The Mighty Thor, but the previous live-action films featuring the God of Thunder never really appealed t...

Robert Downey Jr. might be done with MCU after 'Infinity War'

Robert Downey Jr. is arguably the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe - if not, he's definitely one of the major faces of the ever-expanding world. His initial turn as Tony Stark in 2008's Iron Man is what launched the mega-franchise, and...

The teaser trailer for Thor: Ragnarok is metal as hell

If you asked me two years ago if I'd be excited about a new Thor movie, the answer would be, "No, not at all." Enter Thor: Ragnarok from Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople). It's... it... Guys, it looks meta...

Star Trek 4 is official, Chris Hemsworth to return

We all heard the rumors, but now it is official. Star Trek will carry on into a fourth film, which probably isn't too surprising to anyone. The rebooted franchise has been a moneymaker for the studio and the movies haven't that be too terri...

Universal lost $70 million from The Huntsman: Winter's War

Universal Studios, the folks that brought you nearly SEVEN BILLION dollars worth of brain food last year with hits like Jurassic World, Fast & Furious 7 and Minions may lose as much as $70 million dollars, according to Variety. But don&...

 
 
Winter's War Review photo

Review: The Huntsman: Winter's War

Despite Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Saunders being pulled from the series after allegations of an affair, bumping up visual effects supervisor Cedric Nicolas-Troyan to debut as director, and the first film getting poor reviews,...

 
 
Huntsman Trailer photo

Latest Huntsman: Winter's War trailer is absolutely nuts

To be honest, Flixist has been sleeping on Huntsman: Winter's War. It's not hard to doubt the film given its shaky past and mediocre first outing. When a sequel was announced with everyone but Kristen Stewart attached, I had no idea what to...

Chris Hemsworth to be hunky in Ghostbusters

Paul Feig's upcoming all-female Ghostbusters won't settle for gender-swapping just the main characters. Chris Hemsworth has joined the cast as the new team's receptionist, filling the slot originally held by Annie Potts in the 1984 original...

 
 
 
 
 
Blackhat review photo

Review: Blackhat

I am a big Michael Mann fan. Collateral might be one of my favorite films. The guy just knows how to direct. You can be guaranteed at least one breath taking, though provoking shot in one of his films. This is especially true when...

First official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron

Well I guess no one has to watch Agents of SHIELD on the 28th anymore. Thanks to a snafu leading to a leaked teaser earlier today (which we didn't post because Flixist doesn't dabble in the dark legal arts), Marvel has gone ahead and offic...

First trailer for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea

Based on Nathaniel Phillbrick's book In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex (the Essex's story in turn inspired Herman Melville's Moby Dick), Heart is directed by Ron Howard and stars Chris Hemsworth as the captai...

First trailer for Blackhat, starring Chris Hemsworth

Folks, I don't really know what's going on in this first trailer for Blackhat. All I can gauge is Chris Hemsworth's running around trying to not be Thor, it's set in China (maybe?), Viola Davis is there for some reason, something something...

Woody Harrelson is just a treasure

Did you know that Liam Hemsorth (Gale in The Hunger Games) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor in Thor: The Dark World) were brothers? Then you already know more information than a terribly dazed and confused Woody Harrelson. In an interview with CB...

 
 
Thor 2 Review photo

Review: Thor: The Dark World

I'm one of the few folks I know who liked the original Thor. It's not the greatest Marvel film out of the dozen or so available, but I dug its Shakespearean vibe (two brothers fighting for a throne, secret bloodlines, star-crossed lovers, e...

 
 
Rush Review photo

Review: Rush

Rush is an odd beast. On paper you'd expect some kind of mechanical, by the books ode to the motorsport with some human drama interspersed. In reality the human drama is on the absolute top of the podium with all the other knick-knack ...

Check out new images from Thor: The Dark World

New images from Thor: The Dark World has been released. These new images show off more of Malekith, the new villain, wearing his mask and his Dark Elf army. Amongst the other images are quick peeks at director Alan Taylor talking to Chris H...

Trailer: Red Dawn

If you had any doubts that the Red Dawn remake (out next week!) was going to lack in awesomeness, you can put those thoughts to rest now. While this may be a shorter cut version of the first trailer (with one very notable new thing that I ...

New Red Dawn clip shows off initial N. Korean invasion

Red Dawn is one my most anticipated films of the next couple of months for one reason only. It's the only film I can shout "MURICA!" and won't feel like a total lame wad. Seriously, if this above clip is any indication of how badass t...

First official poster for Red Dawn remake

Here we have the first official poster for the upcoming remake of Red Dawn. For those who never saw the original, the movie is about a small town being invaded by (what else?) communists, and at least in this case, the group of beautif...

Steven Spielberg wants Thor...in Robopocalyse

When Steven Spielberg first announced that he was adapting Daniel H. Wilson's Robopocalypse, my excitement was a bit tempered granted I didn't read the novel yet. After reading the novel, the film can't come soon enough. Every little bit of...

New clip and poster for Snow White and the Huntsman

Oh, they have a Cave Troll! Or rather, maybe a Woods Troll. In this (admittedly poor quality) clip of Snow White and the Huntsman, we get a glimpse into the characterization of Kirsten Stewart's Snow White. Judging by this clip and the tra...
