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.

In it, he invites fans to come and win a walk-on role by getting a high score at the Electric Dreams Arcade, which is set up to play right now in San Diego. Take a look at what he had to say.

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.

Jack Black battles creatures onstage for the Sony 'Goosebumps' panel

24 July 2014 6:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If nothing else, Sony's moderator was positively regal today. In what I would consider a harbinger of things to come, this is the first time I've moderated a panel for a major studio in any room other than Hall H here at Comic-Con. Right now, TV just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and certain shows won't fit anywhere but Hall H. As a result, we were set for the Indigo Ballroom, where we had two films to discuss, and a very special guest to drive the event. After all, when you've got Jack Black onstage, what else do you need? We started with a message from the set of "Pixels," the action-comedy that Chris Columbus is currently directing in Toronto. The film tells the story of what happens when aliens accidentally intercept broadcasts from Earth showing footage of some of the classic video games from the '80s and they »

23 July 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Our first look at some promo art for the upcoming retro video game invasion film Pixels has popped up at San Diego Comic-Con. The movie stars Peter Dinklage, Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, and Michelle Monaghan, and it will include video game characters from games such as Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Frogger, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Galaga, Q*Bert, Space Invaders, Joust, and more.

FX CEO Says 'True Detective' Will "Have To Prove It's Not Just A Vehicle For Movie Stars"

23 July 2014 6:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Given the pedigree of talent assembled for "True Detective" season one—Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Monaghan—and the actors already being tipped for season two (Colin Farrell), not to mention the widespread critical acclaim for the show, it's understandable rivals might be a little jealous. But leave it to FX CEO John Landgraf to fire a shot at HBO about their prestige drama. "...'True Detective' is going to have to prove it's not just a vehicle for movie stars," he said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, adding: "[Nic Pizzolatto] is going to have to write something truly great every single year. I think ['Fargo' writer] Noah [Hawley] has already proven he can write something really great." It's an odd statement given that FX is home to "Fargo," which owes any interest it had going in to the Coen Brothers directed film (with the pair also putting their name on »
