Take it all in, people, because these moments (found at 1:38 in the video above) are precious but fleeting.

'Game of Thrones' Season 5: Tyrion's New Look Revealed

22 December 2014 10:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warning, there are Spoilers contained in this story: Earlier today, HBO released a year-end trailer which features a sneak peek at the pay cable network's upcoming 2015 slate. And it of course includes a few select scenes from Game of Thrones as it prepares for its big Season 5 premiere this spring. While this preview is short, it does reveal Peter Dinklage's new look as Tyrion Lannister.

Tyrion is seen in his new beard, wearing a hood. This is presumably to disguise himself after breaking out of prison to kill Shae (Sibel Kekilli) and his father Tywin (Charles Dance). Nothing else about Tyrion's latest adventures is revealed, but we do get to see Joffrey's mother, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), walking with two soldiers following closely behind her. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) can be seen, back with the men of the Night's Watch. And Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) is shown wearing her »

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 »

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.

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, »

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.

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, »
