Pixels held its panel yesterday during the big Sony presentation, but the cast and director Chris Columbus were unable to attend, due to the fact that they are in the middle of shooting some of the movie's most important scenes. Chris Columbus did send a video greeting, though, which has now been released for everyone to see. In it, he invites fans to come and win a walk-on role by getting a high score at the Electric Dreams Arcade, which is set up to play right now in San Diego. Take a look at what he had to say.

Yesterday, Sony released a viral video for Pixels's Electric Dreams Arcade featuring Peter Dinklage in character as a master video game champion tasked with saving the world from an alien invasion. If you missed it, here it is again:

A Guide To Every Philip Seymour Hoffman Movie Streaming on Netflix

25 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It’s been nearly six months since Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose, and yet his presence is still heavily felt throughout Hollywood. In addition to a lengthy and acclaimed filmography, the Academy Award winner kept up a busy work schedule until the time of his death. He had three films slated for 2014 release: John Slattery‘s directorial debut, God’s Pocket, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and A Most Wanted Man. With the latter hitting theaters today, we thought we’d give you a look every Psh film currently available for your streaming pleasure. Whether as cynical music writer Lester Bangs in Almost Famous or hopelessly lonely boom mic operator Scott J. in Boogie Nights, Hoffman managed to steal the scene in each one of his films. If you have a Netflix account, log in and get caught up on some of the greatest performances in the last 20 years. »

Peter Dinklage Teases the Chance to Star in Chris Columbus’ Pixels

25 July 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With its release positioned just two weeks after Avengers: Age of Ultron, you can see why everyone’s getting excited about Chris Columbus’ upcoming blockbuster, Pixels.

Sony isn’t going to risk putting something people won’t want to turn out to see opposite Age of Ultron’s third and fourth frames. It’s already pegged to be the best thing we’ve seen Adam Sandler do in some time, which is a great prospect enough as it is.

In the past few days, the studio’s been teasing a couple of first looks at the film, and now they’ve launched a new promo ahead of its appearance at Comic-Con, inviting conventiongoers the chance to win a role in the movie.

Jack Black battles creatures onstage for the Sony 'Goosebumps' panel

24 July 2014 6:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If nothing else, Sony's moderator was positively regal today. In what I would consider a harbinger of things to come, this is the first time I've moderated a panel for a major studio in any room other than Hall H here at Comic-Con. Right now, TV just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and certain shows won't fit anywhere but Hall H. As a result, we were set for the Indigo Ballroom, where we had two films to discuss, and a very special guest to drive the event. After all, when you've got Jack Black onstage, what else do you need? We started with a message from the set of "Pixels," the action-comedy that Chris Columbus is currently directing in Toronto. The film tells the story of what happens when aliens accidentally intercept broadcasts from Earth showing footage of some of the classic video games from the '80s and they »

The 2014 San Diego Comic-Con is under way, and while we've shown you all the stills that have been released for the upcoming Goosebumps film, we've now got a look at the logo. It's precisely what you'd expect!

Jack Black, Ken Marino, Amy Ryan, Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee, Halston Sage, Timothy Simons, Amanda Lund, and Dylan Minnette star.

In the film, directed by Rob Letterman, Black portrays famed children's horror writer R.L. Stine, whose monsters, it turns out, are actually real. When they escape from his books and attack an unsuspecting town, it's up to Stine and two teens to get the monsters back into their stories.

Goosebumps, which comes from a screenplay by Darren Lemke and Mike White, is produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner and Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment.

Look for it in theatres on August 7, 2015.

Oh buddy, if you're excited for Chris Columbus' upcoming sci-fi comedy Pixels, then this has been a banner week for you!  The movie shows the outcome of aliens catching a glimpse of classic arcade games and misreading them as a declaration of war.  In response to their attack, President Will Cooper (Kevin James) recruits his childhood best friend and former ‘80s video game champion, Jules Brenner (Adam Sandler), to pull together a team of the best arcaders and save the world.  About a week ago, we saw the first image of those arcaders, the logo and a list of classic games that will be featured in the movie, and a movie poster from Comic-Con.  Now, we have a special behind-the-scenes video that features co-star Peter Dinklage in character as he welcomes viewers to the Electric Dreams Factory.

Does Adam Sandler’s ‘Pixels’ Completely Kill the Chance of a ‘King of Kong’ Remake?

24 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

One of our favorite documentaries of all time here at Fsr, The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters debuted back in January 2007 at the Slamdance Film Festival. Before it even released in theaters that August it had become an enormous cult sensation, particularly with people who aren’t normally into nonfiction films. Also before it even opened, director Seth Gordon was recruited by New Line (who also distributed the doc) to remake the feature, presumably to share the goofy story of rival arcade game champions with a much broader audience that wouldn’t ever, ever watch a doc, no matter how entertaining. It’s totally unnecessary, and those doc-despisers don’t deserve this story if that’s how they’re gonna be, but that’s Hollywood for you. As with most plans to redo docs as dramatic or “narrative” films, though, this one has been taking its sweet time — and doesn’t seem like it’ll »

Comic-Con: Sony Goes For Early Eyeballs With ‘Pixels’, ‘Goosebumps’

24 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Even 10 months out from its May 15, 2015 release date on alien adventure Pixels, Sony‘s playing the long game. This is the only Comic-Con the studio has to promote the Chris Columbus-directed Adam Sandler pic, after all. That means a full-court marketing takeover inside the busy Hard Rock Hotel just outside the Convention Center, complete with arcade open to the public, and the presentation of barely-there footage from the set at this morning’s studio panel. In the pic, aliens invade Earth after mistaking feeds of classic arcade games as an act of intergalactic war. The film is still shooting and Columbus appeared via […] »

Andy Samberg And Kit Harington Enter HBO’s 7 Days In Hell

24 July 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you were worried that Andy Samberg is on his way to being the next Adam Sandler, have no fear! He’s also taking a shot at being the next Will Ferrell. At least, that’s what it sounds like he’s going for in HBO’s 7 Days In Hell, which will feature Samberg as a “bad boy” tennis player embroiled in a seven-day long tennis match at Wimbledon.

Samberg is both starring in and had a hand in creating the “professional tennis mockumentary” alongside Girls co-writer/producer Murray Miller. The one-off HBO “event” will also feature Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington as a tennis prodigy who faces off against Samberg’s bad boy player at Wimbledon. The story, while extreme, is based in reality: a real-life tennis match between John Isner and Nicholas Mahut went on for three days at Wimbledon, back in 2010. Not content with reality, Samberg and »

Dan Stevens, Oren Moverman Team Up for ‘The Ticket’ (Exclusive)

23 July 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Continuing his run of strong dramatic roles, Dan Stevens has come on to star in indie “The Ticket” with Oren Moverman producing.

Ido Fluk is writing and directing with Lawrence Inglee joining Moverman as a producer.

The pic follows a blind man who regains his vision only to be engulfed in selfishness, blinded by his obsession for the superficial.

The film will begin production this August in upstate New York.

Fluk directed the 2011 Israeli film “Never Too Late.”

Stevens has had a busy 2014 thus far beginning with his dark turn in “The Guest” which premiered at Sundance and led to strong reviews for the young actor. He can be seen next alongside Liam Neeson in the Cross Creek pic “A Walk Among Tombstones” and also has “The Cobbler” starring Adam Sandler and “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” bowing later this year.

He recently wrapped production on the ensemble drama “Criminal Activities. »
