You need to see Tetris and Donkey Kong vs Adam Sandler in crazy new Pixels trailer

3 July 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The latest teaser for Adam Sandler's science fiction comedy Pixels turns Tetris and Donkey Kong into Earth's worst enemies.

The premise for Harry Potter director Chris Columbus's new movie is that alien invaders attempt to conquer earth by pitting our favourite '80s video game characters against us.

Naturally, Us president Will Cooper (Kevin James) has no choice but to call in the planet's best gamers - Sandler, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage - to take down these invading aliens.

Our heroes get a little boost when they're joined by the army's chief weapons developer Violet van Patten ( True Detective star Michelle Monaghan).

The comedy was written by Timothy Dowling and Sandler's long-time collaborator Tim Herlihy, a former Saturday Night Live writer.

Pixels opens on July 24 in the Us and August 12 in the UK. Watch a previous trailer below: »

Crackle Debuts ‘Joe Dirt 2′ App To Give Users Digital Mullets

2 July 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Crackle is helping people worldwide turn themselves into hicks. Sony’s streaming video network has launched the Hick Yourself! app to promote the upcoming release of Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser on July 16, 2015.

The Hick Yourself! app allows users to add mullets, mustaches, and other white trash-inspired accessories (including a chainsaw) to a photo of themselves. The app’s users can upload their completed hick photos to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. As Variety notes, Crackle appropriately released Hick Yourself! on July 2, which is National Mullet Day.

Crackle’s Joe Dirt film is a made-for-digital sequel to the hit 2001 film starring David Spade as the titular mullet-wearing Southern redneck “hero.” Produced by Adam Sandler’s Happy Madision Productions and directed by the original Joe Dirt lead Fred Wolf, Joe Dirt 2 tells the story of Joe as he travels through central America (and, apparently, his mind) to find his family.

Spade reprises his role as Joe, »

A celebration of Carl Weathers, the man behind Rocky's Apollo Creed

1 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It only took one view of the Creed trailer for the memories to come flooding back. The Rocky spinoff sees Sylvester Stallone on hand to train the son of his one-time nemesis Apollo Creed.

Of course, Carl Weathers, the man who brought Apollo to life, won't be present in the film (unless there's a Burgess Meredith-like spectral reappearance!), so we've taken some time out to celebrate the man behind the original Creed.

Rocky & Apollo Forever

Weathers played Apollo Creed in the first four Rocky films, duelling with Balboa before the pair eventually become brothers in arms. A thunderous punch from Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) shockingly killed Creed, prompting Rock to vow revenge in the ring.

Apollo is in Creed only in spirit, but there are still many fond memories. Chief of which has to be the above montage from Rocky III. Pure cheese, pure joy.

Paul Thomas Anderson to write Robert Downey Jr.’s ‘Pinocchio’

1 July 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

People thought PTA doing an art house Adam Sandler movie was weird. How about a live action kids movie about a wooden boy?

Via THR, Paul Thomas Anderson’s next film following Inherent Vice may be a version of Pinocchio that Robert Downey Jr. has been developing for the last several years. Anderson is being brought in to rework a script by Michael Mitnick (The Giver) and is being eyed to direct.

Originally, Downey was slated to play Geppetto in a version to be directed by Tim Burton. Burton was then eyed to direct a competing Pinocchio project over at Disney, but eventually settled on Disney’s live action Dumbo movie. But Downey still seems enthusiastic about the project, describing it this way to GQ two years ago:

“I got real excited about it. I was just thinking about Geppetto as a cross between Jake Lamotta and Chico Marx. It’s such a vital story, »

Chris Farley gets emotional tribute from Adam Sandler and others in documentary trailer

1 July 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Farley's friends and colleagues have paid emotional tributes to him in a new documentary trailer.

I Am Chris Farley will be a retrospective about the life and career of the late Saturday Night Live comic, who died of a drug overdose aged 33 in 1997.

"Success in show business does not always create the best version of people," Bob Saget says in the trailer.

Christina Applegate, Dan Aykroyd, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Molly Shannon, David Spade and Lorne Michaels are among those who will appear in the film.

Brent Hodge and Derik Murray directed the documentary, which includes clips from Farley's Saturday Night Live sketches and movies including Black Sheep and Tommy Boy.

I Am Chris Farley will air on Spike on August 10, followed by a VOD release. »

Paul Thomas Anderson to Write, Maybe Direct Robert Downey Jr.'s 'Pinocchio'

1 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Huh! This is a bit of a head-scratcher: Paul Thomas Anderson is writing and possibly directing the live-action remake of "Pinocchio" starring Robert Downey Jr.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Anderson will pen a draft with eye toward directing the film. An auteur like Anderson overseeing a remake of the classic cartoon seems like an odd pairing, though THR says it "shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Downey was poised to star in Anderson's 'Inherent Vice' until his 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' obligations got in the way and Joaquin Phoenix stepped in to play the lead."

Downey has been working on this "Pinocchio" project for years, but it's gained steam now that live-action takes on classic children's tales have achieve such success (see: "Maleficent" and "Cinderella"). Now, the studios are engaged in an arms race to turn over their libraries. Disney is filming "Beauty and the Beast" with Emma Watson. »

I Am Chris Farley trailer

29 June 2015 10:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new documentary is to look back at the life and career of the late Chris Farley. Here's a trailer for it...

The tragic early death of Chris Farley at the age of 33 brought a premature end to a career that was showing so, so much promise. To this day Farley's comedic talents are widely respected, even if, on the big screen at least, he never quite managed to find a movie to fully match them. He died back in 1997, following a drug overdose.

A new documentary film is arriving later this year by the name of I Am Chris Farley, which is set to chart his life. It includes contributions from the likes of Mike Myers, Christina Applegate, his frequent co-star David Spade, his brother Kevin Farley, and Adam Sandler.

I Am Chris Farley is set for release in the Us on July 31st, before heading to DVD and »

Chris Farley died in 1997 at the age of 33 and yet still left behind an enviable body of work—practically everything on his reel could be considered a highlight, from his SNL Chippendales audition to doing cartwheels on Letterman to all of Tommy Boy, the first buddy-comedy feature he made with David Spade.

I Am Chris Farley Trailer Reveals Two Sides to the Late Comedian

29 June 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Like many of you, I grew up watching Chris Farley on big and small screens. Whether it was the bit parts in comedy movies starring his more successful (at the time) Saturday Night Live co-stars, his scene-stealing characters on the same late-night skit show, or his starring movie roles alongside David Spade, Farley's comedic talent always loomed large. He seemed impossible to ignore, an unstoppable force of physical comedy (and surprisingly agility) who was destined for greatness. But rather than following in the footsteps of comedians who went on to long and successful careers, Farley's path to an early death due to a drug overdose closely resembled that of his comedy idol, John Belushi. While it's easy to get choked up wondering "What could have been?" for the 33-year-old star, a new documentary looks to revisit his legacy in a biography that explores Farley's life, character, and career through the »
