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 ...

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...

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 ...

Monsters University wishes you a Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is fast approaching (this is your official Flixist reminder by the way) in the U.S. it's this Sunday, May 12th. Did you forget? Because Pixar certainly hasn't. To continue their tradition from last year when the studio release...

Trailer: Monsters University

While you wait for the review of Disney's other huge property releasing internationally today, maybe the final trailer for Monsters University will tide you over? Nathan Fillion (and others) were announced as part of the voice cast a few d...

300: Rise of an Empire sure gets a poster alright

In a probable attempt to shove this under the rug, Zack Snyder tweeted the first official poster for 300: Rise of an Empire (299) just a few hours after the Man of Steel trailer debuted a few days ago. There's not much to say about it other...

First look and details of 300: Rise of an Empire

Now that Xerxes 300: Battle of Artemesia 299 300: Rise of an Empire is set to release this August, it's about time that we get our first look and plot details of the not quite sequel to 2006's blockbuster man meat parade, 300.  30...

Hear Helen Mirren's voice in Monsters University viral

In this message from the Dean of Monsters University (played by Helen friggin' Mirren who voices a friggin' lady dragon), we get some smooth Mirren voice, the school fight song, and a couple of repeated scenes from previous trailers. Now I...

Trailer: Monsters University

While yesterday's extended and extreme preview for Monsters University showed off more of the story beats, this new (made for the UK) trailer for the prequel tries to go for jokes (it still hints tells about Mike and Sully's early rivalry)...

Super Bowl TV spot for Oz the Great and Powerful

During the Super Bowl a new trailer for Oz the Great and Powerful landed. You might be forgiven for thinking it was actually not a new trailer since we've seen so many trailers for this film that we've probably seen the entire movie a...

No more 3D Star Wars prequels

So instead of trying to milk more money out of the Star Wars fans, Disney wants to work on “rebooting the franchise” with the new trilogy. Not surprisingly this comes from how underwhelming the box office performance of Episode ...

Review: Out There

I've always equated short films with short stories: they make the most of their abbreviated space by filling in the most important of information. Of course, given the short period of time, the format provides both a test and a sense of cre...

Isla Fisher in talks to star in Jackie Brown prequel

The ever lovely Isla Fisher is apparently in talks to co-star in the as-of-yet titled prequel to Jackie Brown, a thing I wasn't even aware existed. Based on the novel The Switch by Elmore Leonard, the film will follow Sameul L. Jackson...

Read Alien: Engineers, the original version of Prometheus

Ridley Scott's Prometheus was a gorgeous-looking movie filled with some the most abysmally idiotic characters I've seen in a long while. (e.g., How do you get lost when you have a digital map? Why can't you run diagonally or perpendicularly...

The Hobbit's first TV spot is way too short

Here's the first TV spot for The Hobbit: The Undiscovered Country. It's pretty short, but there's a lot of tantalizing visual material (including one funny line), but it's not as compelling as the first trailer was. You know what's no...

Warner Bros. is thinking about a Shining prequel

Warner Bros. is what they like to call "quietly looking in to" doing a prequel to Stanley Kubrick's seminal The Shining. I wish I were making this up. While nothing is set in stone, writer/producers James Vanderbilt, Laeta Kalogridis, and B...

Review: Prometheus

Do not believe anything Ridley Scott has told you. Prometheus is a prequel to the pre-existing Alien film series. The corporate backers are one half of that template for evil sci-fi corporations, Weyland-Yutani, and a keen eye will cat...

Tekken prequel being made by the director of Ong Bak

I never saw the live-action Tekken movie since it looked pretty mediocre, but I may watch Crystal Sky's forthcoming prequel, Tekken: Rise of the Tournament, which will be directed by Prachya Pinakew. Pinakew directed Ong Bak, Tom Yum Goong ...

Trailer: Prometheus

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 some change away. ...

Topher Grace made an 85-minute Star Wars prequel trilogy

Brevity may be the soul of wit, but can brevity find the soul in -- well, you know where the rhyme was going. Topher Grace has inexplicably edited the Star Wars prequels into a single 85-minute movie. This whittled down version of the prequ...

Cabin Fever prequel is a thing, has a director

Mos Def & John Hawkes are Jackie Brown prequel stars
