Austin Butler cast as Elvis in King of Rock's biopic

I have decided that my niche for Flixist will be complaining about they don't make musicals like they used to these days. I assure you it's not just because I'm a millennial with terrible taste in  music (Hello the 3 people over 60 who...

Joe Wright to return to WWII with In the Garden of Beasts

Joe Wright and WWII are very good for each other. His two best films, Atonement and Darkest Hour, involved the war and the rest of his movies just aren't as good. This is good news for the adaptation of In the Garden of Beasts as ...

Sony's Mr. Rogers biopic gets a title and date

Review: The Post

The Post is one of those movies you go into just knowing it's going to be good. Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep and Stephen Spielberg? I mean, how could that possibly go wrong. In fact, you know it's going to be good so you kind of set your expecta...

 
 
 
Review: The Circle photo

Review: The Circle

The Circle is the paranoid techno-dystopian thriller of 2006 released in 2017 and based on a Dave Eggers novel published in 2013. The film's concerns about technology and social media are so dated and quaint, like the stuff an older relativ...

Review: Sully

It's a tricky thing about the story of Captain Chesley Sullenberger. The true story of the man who landed an airplane in the Hudson River saving 155 lives, including two infants, is absolutely amazing. But it only lasted 208 seconds. He's a...

Inferno Trailer photo

First trailer for Ron Howard's Inferno teases more clues

Look, I have to be honest. I hated Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. It's dumb, only has like two good ideas, and it made so much money there had to be a film adaptation of it and its two sequels eventually. Since the first two films in the se...

Review: Bridge of Spies photo

Review: Bridge of Spies

Watching Bridge of Spies, I realized almost immediately the difference between a beautiful film and a handsome film. Steven Spielberg's latest movie is handsome. It's cleanly shot, polished, glossy, with impeccable acting in almost every sc...

Watch Tom Hanks recreate most of his films in under 7 minutes

With James Corden taking over The Late Late Show after Craig Ferguson, he sure had to start off with a bang because only a few people really know who he is. His first big guest was Tom Hanks, and Hanks did way more that sit lazily in a cha...

First look at Tom Hanks in Stephen Spielberg's Cold War film

Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks back together? That sounds about as awesome as we can hope for. They kind of make fantastic movies together. This time they're tackling the Cold War in a not-yet-named film that involves the rescue of a captu...

Toy Story 4 is confirmed, gets 2017 release date

With the Toy Story series remaining a big marketing juggernaut long after the trilogy officially ended in 2010, it was almost inevitable that we'd get another film (especially seeing as how we're getting more and more TV specials featuring ...

Inferno starts shooting in April with Tom Hanks

Nick's Flixmas: The Polar Express

Why is The Polar Express special? Is it the motion captured animation? Probably. It's the first film I can remember that promoted itself purely through its advances in animation technology and use of 3D. In fact if you somehow had forgotten...

Captain Phillips Review photo

Review: Captain Phillips

Captain Phillips wasn't really on my radar for the year. I like Paul Grenngrass and I love Tom Hanks, but I really wasn't excited for the film in the same way I am for others. I expected something competent and modest: a serviceable dramati...

Images of the various Cloud Atlas characters

Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

The very idea of a 9/11 movie is still unsettling and, frankly, unappealing. No one is going to wander up to a ticket window and wonder, "Maybe there's a nice 9/11 movie out." Even I, who was safe in New Mexico with nearly everyone I knew, ...
