The Decade Decathlon: 2013

Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. I'm sure that there are more tactful ways of going...

City of Lies wants to revisit Biggie and Tupac's deaths

It’s been more than two decades since Biggie and Pac’s deaths, and in that time there have been countless conspiracies and zero results. The lack of evidence and talkative witnesses have left the rappers’ deaths as one ...

Review: Murder on the Orient Express

Adaptions are tricky. Any work that is remade will inevitably draw comparison from versions that came before, whether positive or negative. Differences in direction, photography, acting, theming and execution are felt immediately by anyone ...

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales New Trailer

As we've expressed here on Flixist before, there's just something about the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise that is fun and makes you eager to see another--wait, not like, 'Oh boy I can't wait for them to make another POTC that will easi...

First trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass drops in

Alice in Wonderland was definitely something. It was so something that had a lot of CGI and weirdness going on, and it was evidently something that made some money for Disney. We heard that a sequel was coming a bit ago as it's been in...

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 in order to tak...

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 title and synopsis revealed

It's difficult to really care about news surrounding the production of yet another Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but nonetheless, Disney has now revealed the official title and synopsis of Captain Jack Sparrow's next drunken adventure at ...

 
 
Into the Woods Review photo

Review: Into the Woods

For a Disney adaptation of a popular musical, Into the Woods has flown surprisingly under the radar. Coming out of practically nowhere, and with all of the early advertising hiding the fact that it is a musical, you'd think Disney was someh...

 
 
Mortdecai Trailer photo

Trailer for Mortdecai features another "wacky" Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp may have a long career of play cartoony weirdos, but it seems like these days he can't accept a job unless a role is draped in more oddness than you could shake a stick at. The latest cartoon he's involved in is Mortdecai, wher...

Newest Into the Woods trailer finally reveals it's a musical

It's not like Disney has been hiding the fact their latest big budget project, Into the Woods, is based off Stephen Sondheim's musical, but they're not shouting it from the rooftops either. With the first couple of trailers and teasers, th...

First image from Kevin Smith's Yoga Hosers debuts

The first promotional image for Kevin Smith's next project, Yoga Hosers, has been released, and if you've seen Tusk, it features some familiar faces. The store clerks from Eh-2-Zed are back and look as apathetic as ever, though apparently ...

First look at furry Johnny Depp in Into the Woods

As Into the Woods continues to look fantastic with a musical trailer, great outfits, and a bewitching Meryl Streep, here's the first thing that gives me pause. Basically any film that gives Johnny Depp free reign to act like a costumed weir...

See Transcendence early and free

Johnny Depp as a computer mind should be pretty interesting, right? I'm thinking so. While the concept behind Transcendence isn't crazy original its execution sounds like it will be. I'm very interested in it, especially since it's get...

New trailer: Transcendence

Omniscient, sentient operating systems-- can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em! I mean, what's a researcher to do when the internet houses the malevolent spirit of her dead husband's fractured psyche? Sounds like a sitcom to me! But ...

 
 
Transcendence Trailer photo

First trailer for Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp

When I posted the teasers a few days ago, I wondered why Transcendence hadn't been on my radar until then. It promised a neat film about a man who bonds with a super intelligence and goes all Skynet on everyone. But with the first full tra...

Two teasers for Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp

I have no idea why Transcendence (starring Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman) hasn't been on my radar until now. The film sounds perfect for me. It's a science fiction thriller in which Dr. Caster (Johnny Depp) attempts to build a super intel...

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 gets an official title

Depp & Bruckheimer blame critics for Lone Ranger flopping

The Lone Ranger is a box office flop that will lose Disney a lot of money. According to Johnny Depp and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the reason the movie flopped wasn't its tonal shifts, poor screenplay, problematic depictions of Native Amer...

The Battle For A More Conscientious Tonto

The portrayal of Native Americans in film has been problematic for a long time. Going back as far as John Ford's 1939 western Stagecoach, the Native American has been stereotyped, truncated and even vilified by traditional Hollywood cinema....

Trailer: The Lone Ranger

The final trailer paints The Lone Ranger as Pirates of the Caribbean (given all the Bruckheimer vibe) with a Jonah Hex skin. It's got the Ranger's origin story and how he meets Tonto (as a man who has been to the other side, like Hex)...

Trailer: The Lone Ranger (Japanese)

This new trailer for Disney's The Lone Ranger (starring Armie "Arm & Hammer" Hammer and Johnny "I'm always Jack Sparrow" Depp) may be turning Japanese-a, but it still has a bit of English dialogue and quite a lot of new foota...

Super Bowl TV spot for The Lone Ranger

Now if memory serves, this TV spot for The Lone Ranger marked the transition from normal commercials to Super Bowl commercials. It was a long spot, essentially a trailer for people watching on TV, and you know what? It doesn't look half ba...

Trailer: The Lone Ranger

Johnny Depp working on a Don Quixote film at Disney

Johnny Depp has apparently started work with Disney on a modern retelling of Don Quixote, that wonderfully cursed picaresque novel by Miguel de Cervantes. The screenplay for the untitled project is being written by Steve Pink (director of H...

Trailer: The Lone Ranger

From the looks of this trailer and the gorgeous scenery images from the other day, if The Lone Ranger is terrible because it features another (so far) weird Johnny Depp accent (still mad that he's playing a Native American regardless of his...

New Lone Ranger images of Depp and Hammer look dusty

While I'm not a hugest fan of The Lone Ranger and the thought of Johnny Depp playing Tonto upsets me, I have to concede that these seven new images from the film (releasing whenever the hell it bloody feels like) make the setting look prett...

Lone Ranger production in heap trouble, kemo sabe
