Naomi Watts joins one-fifth of the Game of Thrones Prequels

We know for sure that there is one Game of Thrones prequel in pilot mode, with four (4!) others in the works (none of which include Dunk and Egg or Robert’s Rebellion for reasons known only to George himself, but that’s neithe...

James Mangold to write and direct Boba Fett movie

Look, I enjoyed Solo: A Star Wars Story plenty, but it gave me the definite feeling that I just wasn't going to be as excited about Star Wars movies anymore. Then Disney goes and pulls something like this. They've tapped James Man...

Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer isssss aliiiiiiiive!

There's a lot to see in the new Super Bowl trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story. This is our first real look at any marketing materials for the movie--highly unusual as it's being released in under 4 months. Look for new Lando in ...

 
 
 
 
 
Apes Review photo

Review: War for the Planet of the Apes

Combing through nostalgic culture has become the norm, and unfortunately, so have the middling resulting projects. Audiences have, sadly, come to expect reboots to suffer as studios struggle to re-capture what made something popular in the ...

Darth Vader returns in Roque One: A Star Wars Story

Darth Vader is back. Again (probably). It seems every round of Star Wars moviemaking must come complete with a healthy dose of the dark helmet. He is after all, arguably, Star Wars’ most iconic character. The revelation came via an En...

 
 
Huntsman Trailer photo

Latest Huntsman: Winter's War trailer is absolutely nuts

To be honest, Flixist has been sleeping on Huntsman: Winter's War. It's not hard to doubt the film given its shaky past and mediocre first outing. When a sequel was announced with everyone but Kristen Stewart attached, I had no idea what to...

Disney working on live action Aladdin prequel, Genies

We're going to get a lot of live action reboots of our favorite animated reboots of old fairy tales in the near future. Disney is working on a fair amount of them themselves (like Pete's Dragon, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast) in ord...

 
 
Minions Review photo

Review: Minions

Whether or not you've seen the Despicable Me movies, you definitely know who these little twinkie looking guys are. Perfectly designed to appeal to almost every demographic (a Xanax like shape, a bright and happy yellow, speaking in a faux ...

 
 
Pan Trailer photo

Newest Pan trailer looks gorgeous

I'm not sure what to think about yet another reboot/prequel/whatever the hell this is, but Pan looks amazing. It's directed by Joe Wright, it's got a great cast with Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, and Garrett Hedlund, and I don't remember Peter...

First full trailer for Insidious: Chapter 3

I couldn't stop laughing at Insidious: Chapter Three's first teaser because a girl figures out she's living in a haunted house through her T-Mobile Sidekick. While I'm resisting that urge right now thanks to a competently put together trai...

Sony is planning a big Ghostbusters universe

If the latest news of Paul Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters film (featuring a cast of awesome ladies) somehow rubbed you the wrong way because Dude Ghostbusters looked like Lady Ghostbusters, don't worry Sony's got your back. Deadline reports t...

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...

Maleficent gets some dreamy looking character posters

I didn't bring this up in our big Summer Preview (because I've said this many times before), but I'm really looking forward to Disney's Maleficent. It's just oozing with style. I mean, get a load of these character posters for the film. The...

 
 
Maleficent photo

These Maleficent images are just so pretty

I honestly can't express how excited I am for Maleficent. I'm a huge fan of the Disney Princess films (I'm a Princess at heart, you know), and a fan of Angelina Jolie, so Maleficent is like a peanut butter meets chocolate situation for me. ...

Review: 300: Rise of an Empire

When a not-sequel/prequel to 300, a film that hit theaters over eight theaters ago, was first announced, I was the first to complain about how boring the whole thing looked. And as time went on, and trailers were slowly released, I did...

 
 
Maleficent Trailer 3 photo

Newest Maleficent trailer is the dreamiest one yet

The third trailer for Maleficent has to be the best one yet, or at the very least, the most interesting. It has different footage from the other two (or is at least cut in such a way that I didn't notice), Angelina Jolie is still delicious...

Second trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire sure does exist

For the three of you still interested to see what the not-prequel/sequel to 300, 300: Rise of an Empire, will bring to the table, this second trailer for the film sure will probably interest you...maybe. After a delay from last August to M...

Trailer: 300: Rise of an Empire

Here's the first trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire (which I still want to refer to as 299) and it's everything you should expect from a 300 movie...if you can remember back that far. Since the new film will take place at the same time as ...

300: Rise of an Empire sure gets pushed back alright

For the two of you who were eagerly awaiting the arrival of 300: Rise of an Empire because of its staggering sameness to its predecessor from six years ago or its overwhelmingly lackluster Eiffel 65 inspired poster, prepare to be socked in ...
