Jodie Whittaker will play Doctor Who's Thirteenth Doctor

If you're a 'hip' kid like me, then you may have heard that the BBC announced a new Doctor was on the way for their long-running show Doctor Who. And on Sunday, they revealed on their Twitter that the new Doctor would be played by...

 
 
Wonder Woman Review photo

Review: Wonder Woman

DC Comics and Warner Bros have been, well, let's say misguided in their attempts at launching a series of films comparable to Marvel's success. Deciding to push through critical failure (thanks to overall box office success), the conglomera...

 
 
 
 
Girl Up and Die photo

First trailer for girl powered horror series Girl Up and Die

Despite best efforts, the horror genre is dominated by testosterone. Reboot after reboot, sequel, after sequel, we get the same kinds of stories told by the same kinds of dudes. Thankfully, the good folks at Unfriendly Productions are worki...

 
 
Trainwreck Review photo

Review: Trainwreck

Whether or not you're a fan of her comedy, Amy Schumer is not going anywhere. Comedy's current "It" girl, Schumer's earned all of the accolades through her comedy specials and often hilarious television show, Inside Amy Schumer. When I...

 
 
 
Barely Lethal Trailer  photo

First trailer for Barely Lethal sure is lethal

I'm immediately interested whenever A24 picks up a film. They've done such a good job of picking out the more interesting and experimental properties like Ex Machina, Spring Breakers, Obvious Child, and so on. Their latest film is Barely Le...

Wonder Woman movie loses director Michelle MacLaren

It's like two steps forward and two steps back for WB and DC. It's just a natural fact that DC's films are having quite a bit of trouble on the back end. It seemed fine at first with WB openly searching for a female director to take on its ...

 
 
Ana Maria Review photo

Review: Ana Maria in Novela Land

It's been a tough time for Latino representation in pop culture. While television has made great strides in casting Latino actors in non-traditional roles to show off a greater range of characterization beyond "gang banger" and "migrant wor...

 
 
 
 
Trainwreck Trailer photo

First trailer for Trainwreck starring Amy Schumer

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm definitely ready for more comedienne led films. One of my biggest films from last year (which you'll find on this handy list) was the Jenny Slate vehicle, Obvious Child. The two may not be compar...

 
 
Pitch Perfect 2 Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Pitch Perfect 2

I've been worried about Pitch Perfect 2 since it was announced a few years ago. I really liked the first one (enough to watch it several times), and a lot of the humor just kind of *clicked* with me. But the more I watched it, the more I b...

 
 
Insurgent Super Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

With as interesting as the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, may be, I really hoped it would've fixed its CG issues by now. It's a shame too because the whole dreamscape aspects are putting out all sorts of crazy Matrix vibes (although the "She...

Nick's Top 15 Movies of 2014

It was the best of films, it was the blurst of films. Hey everyone I'm Nick Valdez, News Editor here for Flixist and you've probably seen my name on a good chunk of the stuff written here. If not, then I'll tell you a bit about myself. I li...

 
 
Babadook Review photo

Review: The Babadook

I've been interested in The Babadook ever since our editor supreme, Matthew Razak, wrote a feature detailing how progressive it was. If you've read any of my reviews in the past (or any of my other work here on Flixist), you know that I'm n...

 
 
Insurgent Trailer photo

First full trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

I liked the first Divergent film enough. Although it's basically a thinly veiled message of "Everyone sucks but me because I'm different," everything was just super cheesy and bad looking enough to work. It's better than the sum of its par...

 
 
Wonder Woman!  photo

Wonder Woman movie nabs director Michelle MacLaren

We're going to get so many superhero films the rest of this decade I say we just pay attention to the ones with enough unique bits to stand out. Chief among these is Warner Bros' eventual take on Wonder Woman. After our most likely burning ...

 
 
Mockingjay Part 1 Review photo

Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

The Hunger Games has come a long way. From humble meh-ish beginnings, to a sequel that, well, caught fire in theaters, the films have gotten increasingly better the more comfortable everyone gets with the material. Going into the latest, Mo...

 
 
Pitch Perfect 2 photo

First official trailer for Pitch Perfect 2

I once wrote an article on why making a sequel to Pitch Perfect, one of the most charming films of 2012, was a bad idea. The first is kind of dumb, Glee isn't the juggernaut it was a few years ago, but through all of that, I still enjoyed ...

Flixgiving: Matt is thankful for The Babadook

I can count the number of truly scary horror films I've seen this year on one finger. That's not to say there haven't been other good horror movies, but for a horror buff like myself it takes something special to actually make me scared. Li...

Wonder Woman close to having female director

I think we're all aware of the under representation of female directors in Hollywood. That problem is even greater when we're talking about big budget blockbusters. Women directors are almost completely missing from tent pole films. A small...

 
 
Laggies Review photo

Review: Laggies

I'm at a point in my life where I have absolutely no idea what to do next. I graduated from college two years ago and, even with all I think I've accomplished over that time, I sometimes feel like I'm walking in circles. Like I'm a turtle s...

Here's our first look at Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Did you know there was an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in the works? It's been in development hell for quite some time with a script that's been written and rewritten many times over. But hey, if...

More Twilight films in the works...sort of

With all of the Young Adult properties out there now trying to fill the void Twilight left behind, you figure we'd never hear about the series again. Well, someone out there really wants to explore those films again. Luckily, not in the way...

 
 
The Scribbler Review photo

Review: The Scribbler

When I choose to review a film it's because something about it speaks to me. Whether it's the premise, the setting, the look, or the cast involved, I'm willing to take a chance on pretty much anything if some of those things are there. I ch...

Star Wars: Episode VII adds some badass women to the cast

With Star Wars: Episode VII's 2015 release date getting closer and closer, we have some more casting news. After the major reveal in April, we have a two new women joining a crew that was severely lacking in them. Thankfully, these two wome...

 
 
 
 
Tammy Trailer 2 photo

Second trailer for Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy

I really, really want to love this trailer for Tammy, but I can't find it in my heart to do so. It's got everything I'm supposed to love: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, PIE, but I've just been let down by McCarthy's string ...

 
 
Jem Movie photo

First image and cast for Jem and the Holograms movie

Since we never actually covered the initial announcement, there's quite a bit of ground cover. First of all, production of a live action Jem and the Holograms (the popular, and outrageous, 80s cartoon about women in a rock band) adapta...

 
 
Obvious Child Trailer photo

First trailer for Obvious Child, starring Jenny Slate

Obvious Child is one of the films I regret missing out on during SXSW. It stars Jenny Slate, in her first starring role (though she's played numerous, fabulous supporting roles), as a comedienne who's life takes an unexpected turn when she...

 
 
Walk of Shame Trailer photo

Red Band trailer for Walk of Shame, starring Elizabeth Banks

As Flixist's News Editor, I've seen so many trailers they eventually start bleeding into each other. Premises start sounding the same, jokes sound the same, and then things stop being entertaining. And then there's Walk of Shame. Walk of S...

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler team up again for The Nest

In a move that should end world conflict and have people dancing in the street out of sheer happiness, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are teaming up for Universal's The Nest. The film will follow Foehler and Fey as they return home, only to disco...
