As if there were any doubt in our minds, Chris Nolan has announced that he's completely done with the Batman franchise, and will not be working on a Justice League movie for Warners. This news comes from a Dark Knight Rises j...   read

See that up in the header? That's the new ED-209 from José Padilha's upcoming Robocop remake. I likey. We're given this image from the new OCP themselves: OmniCorp. You can see their full line of products, including th...   read

Love it or hate it, Prometheus is a hell of a movie. And this being a Ridley Scott directed movie, we can expect a pretty grandiose home release. Fox recently detailed the list of extras that'll be on the Blu-Ray, and it...   read

Trailer: Looper

  Watch Video Yesterday, Alex brought you the latest international trailer for my most anticipated film of the year, Looper. While I haven't been able to see it yet thanks to MSN's awful video player, I was able to see the latest dom...   read

Rian Johnson, director of such modern classics as Brick and The Brothers Bloom, wrote a pretty great essay about stereoscopic filmmaking. In it, Johnson discusses his personal views on the medium, and how (in theory...   read

Joel Kinnaman. Gary Oldman. Samuel L. Jackson. And now, Hugh Laurie. That's right, Dr. House himself is in talks to play the evil-jerkface CEO of OmniCorp (I really hope that's just a typo) in Jose Padilha's upcoming remake o...   read

Max writing another post about the inevitable demise of celluloid? What a concept! IHS Screen Digest, a firm that does nothing but research trends in digital media, seems to think that major studios will cease distributing 35...   read

I wish the aliens that captured Guy Ritchie after making Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels would return him and take back this...thing they left us with. Warner Bros. announced today that Fake Guy Ritchie will be...   read

  Watch Video As a fixie rider, I get mocked a lot for my gear of choice. "Hipster!" "Get off the road, jackass!" I've heard it all. But what folks haven't realized is how awesome bike messengers are. Those guys and gals are some of the b...   read

  Watch Video About a month ago, I posted the trailer to Werewolf in a Girls' Sorority, which stars Flixist community member Alex Barbatsis, as well as many YouTube personalities including Freddie Wong and the Gregory Brothers. Well, the ...   read

Guys, guys, guys. Guess what. Gary Oldman is in the Robocop remake. I know! Man, this movie is going to be incredible, I can just feel it. But the question remains: who will he play? The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop ...   read

  Watch Video Ugh. I can't even begin to express my disgust for this trailer. I was already a little hesitant when Baz Luhrmann was announced to direct an adaptation of one of my favorite books ever. But then we're given...this? When was ...   read

  Watch Video I really don't know what to say about this scene from March, starring Destructoid editor Jonathan Holmes. He's a serial killer singing about how he wanted to get caught? How does he know the detective? Will there be pedophil...   read

  Watch Video I just finished watching Predator for the first time in years. And while the Predators themselves are complete babies, Arnold's performance is nothing short of obnoxious macho greatness. So it seems fitting that I'd fin...   read

  Watch Video And the Prometheus viral campaign just keeps on rollin'. Today, we're graced by the lovely Noomi Rapace sending a message to the Yutani Corporation pitching her intergalactic mission. But it wouldn't be a viral without ...   read

Well color me pink, folks haven't forgotten about the drive-in movie theatre! In an interesting turn of events, Disney is now seeing a decently little box office increase for its surprisingly decent John Carter, thanks t...   read

  Watch Video As a DC kid from birth, I have no right to be as excited for The Amazing Spider-Man as I am right now. As far as I'm concerned, Peter Parker's character has been captured perfectly. I mean, there's that whole lame parents backstory. And sure, we've seen half of this trailer already. But who cares? It's Spier-Man doin' flips and s*it! In 3D! July 3, get here already.   read

I first saw World's Greatest Dad a month or two after I got home from film school. Having only seen the trailer, I was hoping for something dark and hilarious. Not only did I get that, but I had a new favorite filmmaker....   read

Joel Murray is one of those great character actors that's been in a lot of things, but you just can't quite put your finger on his name. But just like his brother Bill, Joel has made a great career out of being "that guy". Bu...   read

While Geoff wasn't as enthralled with Bobcat Goldthwait's latest movie, God Bless America, I unabashedly love it. And part of the reason the movie works so well is the talent of newcomer Tara Lynn Barr. This week, I had ...   read

Well it took 'em long enough! Yesterday, Deadline debuted the news that Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's third installment in the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, The World's End, will start production this September. That's only li...   read

Recently, I had the chance to speak to the stars of Bobcat Goldthwait's latest film God Bless America. During a great interview with Joel Murray (which will be going up this week), I managed to get some new information about ...   read

  Watch Video Pixar's Brave is gearing up for its Disney Park debut in a huge way. The Scottish princess herself, Merida, will soon be roaming the mean streets of Epcot, and wherever they end up putting her in Disneyland. While she h...   read

  Watch Video Christmas 2001. My brother hands me a wrapped gift that looks like a jewel case and says "You probably downloaded all of this anyway..." I open it up, and in it is Paul's Boutique by the Beastie Boys. Obviously, I didn't...   read

Trailer: Klown

  Watch Video I first saw the trailer for Klown a couple of months ago while at the Cinefamily in Los Angeles. The Danish comedy looked outrageously funny, and incredibly awkward; my kind of comedy. I made a quick mental note to make...   read

In a move that is simply shocking, Universal has sued direct-to-video studio Asylum for fear of copyright infringement on their upcoming board game to movie adaptation of Battleship. You see, when two studios release two simi...   read

  Watch Video This has been an amazing week for trailers, and it's only Monday evening. First, we get an international Prometheus trailer which knocked my socks off. Then, we're treated to the latest, and final, Dark Knight Rise...   read

  Watch Video This again? Look Ridley, we get it. Prometheus looks amazing, but you don't have to flaunt it in front of everyone. While you get to finish the movie, us mortals have to suffer until June 8. That's like, a month and som...   read

Trailer: Hick

  Watch Video Let it be known that Chloe Grace Moretz has one hell of a career on her hands, if handled properly. I honestly haven't seen a role she's played that hasn't been good. And it looks like Hick is going to continue tha...   read

Now, this is where I'd usually gloat and jump up and down saying "HAHAHAHA! I TOLD YOU SO!" But I'm beyond that (and already did that this morning). During CinemaCon, Warner Bros. showcased some "beautiful" 48 fps footage of ...   read

 

About Maxwell Roahrigone of us since 3:34 AM on 02.17.2011

Max was born at the tender young age of zero in town noted for its horses and baseball bats. He enjoys giraffes, Robocop, oft forgotten movies of the 90's, vaudeville, British comedies, and bicycling. He realizes that this is slowly turning into an eHarmony listing, so just read his words, alright?
