Review: Mary Poppins Returns

We're in an era of sequels and remakes, and with 2018 being the biggest box office year in the history of cinema we're going to be getting plenty more. If a studio can bring something old and beloved back they're probably going to do it. It...

See Once Upon a Deadpool early and free

Are you as curious as I am about what the hell a PG-13 Deadpool would be like? Or maybe you're just a super big fan of Fred Savage and The Princess Bride? Or maybe you want to see the new Once Upon a Deadpool, but you hate giving to chariti...

Candyman franchise reboot with Jordan Peele confirmed

Remeber Candyman? He's back! In Pog form! No, actually, movie form, though some sweet Candyman Pogs would totally round out my collection of super dated things.  As previous rumors stated MGM has partnered with Monk...

2 Avatar sequels are finished with principal photography

James Cameron is a man on a very strange mission: flood the world with enough Avatar media in hopes that when the workhorse of a director reveals he's really an alien with blue skin, we'll still love and accept him. That is the on...

Paddington 3 in the works and you all better go see it

At Flixist we don't cover kids movies with that much regularity. With that in mind, you're probably wondering why I've chosen to publish a story about a possible third film in the Paddington series coming out as, at face value, th...

We may know the names of the four Avatar sequels

James Cameron and Warner Bros. are about halfway through shooting Avatar 2-5, but we still know almost next to nothing about them aside from the fact that they'll take place on Pandora and a few casting tidbits. Now the&...

Ridley Scott is currently working on a sequel to Gladiator

Gladiator was one of those seminal films that if you were the right age and saw it at the right time has stuck in your mind since then. I was both at the right and at the right time so the movie for me is one of my favorites from direc...

Review: Halloween

Like all slasher franchises Halloween has had its ups and downs over the years. Sure there's something to appreciate in even the worst of the eight original films and two Rob Zombie reboots, but it's hard to argue that the fr...

Venom Sequel will not be R-Rated

For a film, many thought would do horribly because it's not part of the MCU and is done by Sony, Venom did extremely well at the box office in its opening weekend. Now, of course, there is the talk of where does it go from here and that que...

Easy money won't not let Pitch Perfect 4 be a thing

Let me get my dig in upfront about how a potential sequel to the worst sequel ever is totally fine and definitely not capitalism squeezing out my last gasp of creative hope for Hollywood. Nope, just another Wednesday where once excitin...

Second trailer for Creed II lands all the right punches

When we learned that Creed II would be about Ivan Drago's son challenging Adonis Creed's son to rematch I rolled my eyes so hard I got bruises like Rock after a match. That kind of plot sounded straight out of the later Rock...

The Raid 3 is most likely not happening ever

The Raid and The Raid 2 are masterpieces. Literal masterpieces. They are some of the best action of any kind you will see ever. Director Gareth Evans should be directing everything. It's a crime he's not involved with some superhe...

Kingsman 3 is officially happening, release date announced

The first Kingsman was a fresh smack in the face to James Bond films. Taking everything that was fantastic about the comic book and reflecting it on screen in smart and creative ways that highlighted Matthew Vaughn's screenplay an...

New trailer for Halloween: Making a Murderer: Michael Myers

Universal recently released a second Halloween trailer, and frankly, if anything, it only adds to the hype created by the first. It begins with a true crime montage of the new Halloween mythos, i.e. the first film exists and now this film ...

See The Nun early and free

This whole Conjuring universe is getting a little out of control, but I suppose if they keep on making money why not keep on making them. They're also all relatively good in quality (relative to the vast majority of bad horror films ou...

Thankfully the MGM Child's Play reboot is happening

It's very possible that you hadn't heard -- considering that Chucky isn't on very many people's daily radar and it's been delayed years -- that MGM is planning to reboot the Chucky franchise without creator Don Mancini and pr...

Review: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

The original Mamma Mia, based off the theatrical musical of the same name, was an absolute blast. Cram packed full of stars, fantastic numbers, clever direction, and clever winks at the genre the movie worked just as well as the musical did...

Review: Equalizer 2

There’s a scene in Sony’s The Equalizer 2, the follow-up to 2014’s rather enjoyable original, wherein Denzel Washington’s Robert McCall breaks into a drug den, beats the holy hell out a few guys and pushes his w...

See The Equalizer 2 early and free

The Equalizer was a bit of fun with Denzel Washington basically doing his best Liam Neeson so hopefully, the sequel won't be a drop off in quality the same way Taken 2 was. At least we're getting the same creative team back. Want to kn...

See The First Purge early and free

From some humble beginnings The Purge has turned into one of bolder political commentaries in recent years. It's kind of funny to think that a high concept home invasion film has spurred this much success, but now we'll get to learn where i...
