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: »

Destiny Could Have Potentially Been A Whole Lot Funnier, Had Bungie Used A Script Written By Arrested Development’s David Cross

3 July 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember the bad rap that both Bungie and Peter Dinklage were on the receiving end of when players were given the chance to play the Destiny beta last year? The whole bloody internet almost exploded with complaints that Dinklage’s voice sounded much too monotonous and disinterested. Bungie took the criticism on board and gave the actor’s vocal performance a bit of distortion – making him sound much more robotic – but it did little to remedy the situation.

Other than criticisms concerning Dinklage’s delivery of his lines, the other main qualm most had was how bland the actual character was. No personality, comedy or charisma – just boring.

According to an interview with IGN though, the character may have originally been a hell of a lot funnier than the one gamers the world over got tired of after a few hours. Arrested Development star, David Cross, originally wrote a script for the player’s companion, »

29 June 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past week we’ve seen a couple of character vignettes for Pixels featuring Ashley Benson’s Lady Lisa and Peter Dinklage’s Eddie ‘The Fire Blaster’ Plant, and now Sony has debuted another featurette, which introduces us to Ludlow Lamonsoff, played by Josh Gad

As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades.  Now, they’re going to have to do it for real.  In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now-u.S.

Meet Some Of the Heroes From Pixels

29 June 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While the big draw of Pixels may be seeing computer game characters we grew up with in the 80’s brought to life, lets not forgot the human characters that will be going up against Pac-Man, Donkey Man, Centipede, and many more pixelated sprites from video games past. Three new video vignettes have come our way, taking us behind the scenes and introducing us to three of our heroes, namely Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), Eddie ‘The Fire Blaster’ Plant (Peter Dinklage), and Lady Lisa (Ashley Benson). Check them out below. Released: 24th July (U.S.)/ 14th August  (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades.

Comic-Con 2015 Schedule for Friday, July 10th

26 June 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off the unveiling of the lineup for Preview Night and Thursday, Comic-Con has released their schedule for Friday, July 10th, and it's supremely underwhelming. Save for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel late in the day, there's really nothing "must-see" in Hall H. The Game of Thrones panel is lacking some of the show's biggest stars, including Peter DinklageLena Heady, and Kit Harington or even showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and the Hall H festivities close out with a look at Kevin Smith's new film Yoga Hosers. This is a far cry from the Friday Hall H lineup just a few years ago, and the lack of Disney, Paramount, and Sony is certainly showing. All the "good stuff" (save for Star Wars) seems like it's being relegated to Saturday. Rather than post the entire schedule, we’ve pulled out highlights for the biggest panels »

Peter Dinklage takes on Pac-Man behind the scenes of Pixels

26 June 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

When aliens that have taken the form of video games attack Earth, it takes a special kind of hero to fight for humanity’s survival.  Enter Pixels’ arcade heroes: Peter Dinklage, Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, and Michelle Monaghan.

We’re not talking your run-of-the-mill hero with super powers or even Bruce Wayne’s bankroll to back them up.  These are the former hardcore gamers and nostalgia-driven arcade game lovers whose intricate knowledge of Pac-Man and Donkey Kong will be what saves us all when Pixels opens in theatres on July 24th.

Just who are these arcade heroes?  And more importantly, who is the dual sword-wielding Lady Lisa (Ashley Benson).  Two brand new featurettes will answer these questions and more!  »

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Leaked Scene and New Character Details

23 June 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Season 5 of Game of Thrones ending last week, in quite shocking fashion, the show's producers are getting ready to start production on Season 6. This will be uncharted territory for both fans of George R.R. Martin's books and the show itself, since this past season caught up to the last book that the author published, back in 2011. Last month, casting breakdowns were released for 12 new characters, although the roles were not identified by name. Today, Watchers on the Wall have gotten their hands on casting breakdowns for 14 more roles that are currently being cast, giving us a better look at what areas of Westeros may be focused on in Season 6. None of these characters have been confirmed by HBO yet, but beware, there may be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

The first two characters, Qhogo and Akrat, are most likely Dothraki warriors, since the breakdown »

Following yesterday's sneak peek that gave us more insight into Ashley Benson's Lady Lisa, Sony Pictures has released a new preview for Pixels, arriving in theaters July 24.
