20 Most Viewed Movie Trailers of 2014

18 December 2014 6:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

THR has released an official list of the most viewed trailers of 2014. And you may be surprised to see which movie came in first. While a lot of your are probably guessing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was actually Fifty Shades of Grey that took top honors. While Star Wars: The Force Awakens had the best start of the year, grabbing 58.2 million views in its first five days of release, it was Fifty Shades of Grey that won the race with its four month head start. The trailer has been viewed 93 million times on Youtube since its July 24 release. Don't feel too bad for Star Wars 7, though, as it came in second place with 81 million Youtube views since its debut over Thanksgiving weekend. In third place was Avengers: Age of Ultron with 78 million views. Here is the full top 20 list of most watched trailers followed by the trailers themselves. »

Game Of Thrones Season Five Teaser Offers The Sight Of Tyrion And Sansa

17 December 2014 1:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With months to go before HBO’s fantasy smash Game Of Thrones re-enters the public consciousness like a virulent plague, the powers-that-be are dropping subtle hints as to what we can expect. We’ve already devoured the Arya-Raven teaser that bowed last month, and praise be to Ned, now there’s another. Found over at the show’s new viral site - The Sight - this teeny tease shines a spotlight on a different duo from Westeros: Sansa and Tyrion.

Unlike the first video, the new one to crop up is designed to only be viewed once. Luckily, one eager fan captured the clip via a screengrab and you can now watch it for yourself above. Followed by the words, “Keep watch for further visions of the future,” we can only assume that there’ll be a proper full-length trailer on its way. Focusing on Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and »

Terrific New Banners For Videogame Adventure ‘Pixels’

17 December 2014 12:21 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve been keeping a distant eye on the progress of Pixels for nearly five years now and, no, that doesn’t make me better – It makes me a little obsessive – but it’s still looking like a lot of fun.

Although Pixels doesn’t hit UK cinemas until August 2015, we’ve got a moving set of banners and then scroll down for a closer look. The film stars Peter Dinklage, Sean Bean, Michelle Monaghan and Adam Sandler, and tells the story of videogame experts, recruited by the military to fight 1980s-era video game characters who have attacked New York – Oh yes.

Check it out below and also click here for the previous look at the team.

Pixels opens in the UK next August, 2015. »

Check those out in the gallery below along with the original short film....

Pixels Banners Strike The Planet

16 December 2014 5:55 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

You have to feel for the big, iconic cities of the world. If they’re not being lashed by crummy weather, they’re being targeted by alien invaders and other cinematic catastrophes. With Pixels, giant versions of video-game enemies are attacking locales such as London, Paris and San Francisco. Yes, the likes of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Eiffel Tower and the Houses of Parliament are once more being assaulted, this time by Pac-Man, Centipede and Space Invaders. It’s all in service of Adam Sandler’s new action-comedy, which finds extra-terrestrials misreading video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war. They decide to attack us using versions of ships and other icons from games and mankind has to fight back. To help out, the Us president (Kevin James) recruits his childhood friend and former video-game champ (Sandler) to lead a group of old-school arcade players.Peter Dinklage, »

Story Details Revealed For Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters Reboot

16 December 2014 12:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the last week, it’s become common knowledge that every hot actress in Hollywood would be just fine with taking a role in Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot. Amid all the excitement over who might be starring though, there’s been very little attention paid to what they’ll actually be doing in the movie. In another batch of leaked e-mails from the Sony hack, Feig’s direct correspondence with studio head Amy Pascal have revealed story specifics for his intended reinvention.

In case some or any of the following makes its way into the finished movie, we recommend looking away now if you don’t want to read any Potential Spoilers.

First of all, Feig strongly reiterates that his version will be a reboot and Not a sequel, slated to exist in a world where humans are as-yet unaware that ghosts actually exist. His vision is said »

5 New Posters for Sony's Pixels Show Retro Games Conquering the World

16 December 2014 12:41 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Sony's Adam Sandler starring film about alien invaders using retro video games to take over the world, Pixels, is set to hit theaters next month, and today they've released a series of posters showing your childhood favorites menacing various locales around the world.  Come inside to check them out!

Aside from a couple images of the human characters around the time of Sdcc, we haven't seen much of Sony's upcoming film, Pixels.  We know it's about aliens who are attacking Earth using characters from classic video game series, and a team of expert arcade champions (including Sandler, Peter Dinklage, and Josh Gad) are tasked with saving the world.  It's a goofy premise, but honestly, it could be a lot of fun too.  

The posters are pretty neat, and evoke a certain nostalgia, though pixellated attackers don't necessarily fit in with the backgrounds of the posters.  I'm chalking that up to poor photoshopping, »

'Pixels' Posters with Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Centipede

16 December 2014 11:46 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earth is about to get some uninvited, yet very familiar, visitors in the upcoming summer adventure Pixels, with Sony Pictures releasing five new posters. These one-sheets show classic 1980s video games being used against us, with Pac-Man attacking San Francisco, Donkey Kong throwing his barrels at Toronto, a Galaga ship looming over Sydney, Australia, Centipede stationed over London and one of the Space Invaders setting up shop in Paris. We reported in July that Pixels will feature other games such as Frogger, Q-Bert, Missile Command, Dig Dug, Joust, Defender, Robotron and Wizard of Wor, so perhaps we'll get a new wave of posters soon.

In Pixels, intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them and attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, '80s video »

Pac-Man, Space Invaders and more featured in new Pixels posters

16 December 2014 10:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony has released some brand new character posters for the up-coming sci-fi comedy Pixels. It seems that fans of iconic arcade games like Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Donkey Kong will be more than pleased with what Sony and director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) have lined up for them.

The live action comedy starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Michelle Monaghan and Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage will revolve around a group of arcade game fanatics who are called upon to save the earth when an angry race of aliens mistake classic arcade games as a declaration of war.  It seems safe to assume that this quirky little story has a strong chance of success with Columbus’ action and comedy knowledge and a pool of experienced acting talent behind it.

You can see some of your favourite arcade characters brought to life in the posters below… »

First Posters For Pixels

16 December 2014 10:04 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

There's going to be a lot of crazy images on screen in Chris Columbus' Pixels, and I'm not talking about the sight of Kevin James as the U.S. President. The movies sees Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, and Josh Gad as a trio of washed up former video game champions who are the Earth's only line of defense when alien misinterpret classic arcade games as a declaration of war, and attack in kind. The first posters for the movie have come online (courtesy of Hey U Guys and Yahoo! Movie), showing us just what we're in for, giving us the awesome sight of Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and a Space Invader attacking major cities. Check them out below. Released: 24th July 2015 (U.S.)/ 14th August 2015 (Irl/U.K.) »

Sony Hack – Plot details for Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters: “It’s like Night at the Museum”

16 December 2014 9:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

More information now from the Sony Hack as Vulture have given us some plot details for Paul Feig’s all-female reboot to Ghostbusters. Warning – could contain spoilers.

See Also – Ghostbusers spin-off in development with Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt

In an email between Paul Feig and Amy Pascal, the director spitballs ideas for his movie which, he states, is a reboot and not a sequel. The website writes:

“Humans aren’t afraid of no ghosts, he says, because they haven’t met them yet. He says his film will be ‘scarier and more hi-tech’ than the original Ghostbusters: The villain will be a convicted murderer, ideally played by Peter Dinklage, who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by ‘a supercharged electrical storm.’ This gives him the power to raise an army of other ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history. It’s like Night at the Museum! »

Earth Is Under Siege In First Posters For Pixels

16 December 2014 8:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a while since we last caught wind of Pixels, Chris Columbus’ bold adaptation that pits Adam Sandler and Co. against a group on oncoming aliens, but today, we’ve been treated to a trio of otherworldly stills that showcase a very familiar looking extraterrestrial threat.

The images, which you can feast your eyes on in the gallery below, depict the likes of Pac-Man and Space Invaders wreaking havoc on some of the world’s most famous landmarks. And so, with planet earth hanging in the balance, the world turns to Sandler’s Sam Brenner — a former video game champion who is now living out the rest of his days as a home theater installer. All that changes overnight, though, when Brenner must band together the finest thumbs in the business — namely Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad’s characters — to overcome the galactic threat.

Based on Patrick Jean’s wonderful animated short, »
