25 July 2014 11:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

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.

The HeyUGuys Interview: Sandy Busby and Brian Cox on Believe

23 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When it comes to portraying such a renowned character – just as Brian Cox does in Believe, where he takes on the role of the renowned Manchester United manager Sir Matt Busby, those most prominently in mind when it comes to doing justice to the real person, tend to be the close family. So for Cox, he knew he had to turn in a performance of the highest quality, especially with the subject’s son Sandy watching on. Well, it seems he must have done a commendable, respectful job – because we had the pleasure in interviewing the pair, together.

We asked Sandy about his own memories in regards to the real life story this is based upon, and given his reservations in the past of dramatic retellings of his father’s life, what it was about Believe that he was so comfortable with. Brian Cox also tells us about embodying such a renowned figure, »

Believe Review

22 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

“It’s not just about football – it’s about dreams”, is a line uttered by Brian Cox’s Matt Busby, in David Scheinmann’s accessible, family drama Believe, a statement that is somewhat indicative of the entire production, as a film that certainly won’t alienate those not quite so informed about football. Instead this is a traditional story of the working class underdog, an area British cinema so often excels – but sadly, not quite as triumphantly in this instance.

The year is 1984, and former Manchester United manager – and legend – Sir Matt Busby is struggling with retirement, missing the adrenaline and exhilaration from a life in the dugout, and haunted by the memories of the Munich Air Disaster, which saw a large proportion of his team and staff killed. However when he stumbles across the talented youngster Georgie Gallagher (Jack Smith), he finds his passion returns, and is inspired to »
