Way back in August, we gleefully/somewhat confusedly broke down a then-new trailer for The Best of Me, this year’s single Nicholas Sparks offering, to determine just how “Nicholas Sparks” it actually was. Verdict: very Nicholas Sparks! So it wasn’t entirely shocking when the finished product, a sappy and soppy love story starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, proved to be just as Sparksian in its delivery. Sparks is back again with yet another feature film (since 2012, the author has averaged one film based on his novels per year, so no one should ever be surprised when a new one crops up, which is terrifying but true), one that just might mix up the brand. Kidding! It looks extremely Sparksian, but perhaps The Longest Ride will at least benefit from a slightly new-sounding backdrop: bull riding. Starring Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood, The Longest Ride explores the fated love between an artsy young lass and »

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.

Full marks to the marketing team behind Chris Columbus' upcoming feature length expansion of Patrick Jean's short film Pixels. They clearly know exactly what they've got in the retro video game themed story and are putting the focus on its 8-bit stars rather than those of the human variety (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad and Brian Cox are the flesh and blood types in it) with a series of stellar teaser posters. Check those out in the gallery below along with the original short film....

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, »
Earlier today we brought you posters for Sony Pictures' Pixels featuring classic video game characters from Centipede and Space Invaders. Now we have two more to add to the collection with posters that include Pac-man and Donkey Kong invading earth and causing complete chaos.

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.

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.

Sony Pictures has unveiled the first Pixels posters for director Chris Columbus’ upcoming adventure film, and fans of a few arcade games in particular will recognize the principal characters on display. The comedy stars Adam Sandler and revolves around a group of 80s arcade game champions who are called upon to help defend Earth from alien invaders who have misinterpreted our classic arcade games as a declaration of war. Columbus has years of experience in both the comedy (Home Alone) and adventure (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) realms, and Sandler’s supporting cast is filled out by talented actors like Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, and Josh Gad, so I’m actually pretty hopeful about how this thing turns out. This debut poster is a fine start. Check out the first Pixels posters after the jump. The film also stars Brian Cox and Kevin James. Pixels opens in theaters on July 24, 2015. Posters via Yahoo! »

So far Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Centipede, Donkey Kong and Galaga have scored their own posters, although quite a few of them aren't available in large formats just yet (this page will be updated to include those when they are). Hopefully Frogger gets his own soon too.

After what she calls a "bleak" time in her life, Kathy Bates’ career resurgence just keeps getting better. The veteran actress picked up an Emmy earlier this year for her part in American Horror Story: Coven, and now she’s being recognized once again for her role on FX’s hit anthology series.
Early Thursday morning, Bates snagged her seventh Golden Globe nomination – the first since 2002’s About Schmidt -- for her portrayal of the bearded lady, Ethel Darling, on American Horror Story: Freak Show, pitting her against the likes of Orange Is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba and True Detective’s Michelle Monaghan in the Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie category.

Tis the season… to celebrate the 2015 Golden Globe nominations!
In case you we're sleeping (consider us extremely jealous) the full list of Golden Globe nominees was revealed this morning. Among the acting elite in the TV categories there were plenty of snubs and surprises that we need to discuss immediately. (And for all the movie buffs out there, take a look at our big screen edition of snubs and surprises.)
News: The Full List of Golden Globe Nominations!
Let's rave about these surprises:
1. Jane the Virgin: We've been in love with this show from the very beginning so to see The CW's freshman comedy snag a nod is beyond thrilling — especially since the series' captivating star Gina Rodriguez also made the ballot for Lead Actress in a Comedy. Fyi, this is a huge deal for The CW as these nominations mark the first Globe mentions for the network since its debut in 2006.
2. Transparent: We were »
The nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards are in and once again HBO shows swept the TV categories (Girls, True Detective, Veep), but there were also some surprises (Jane the Virgin, Annie's Quvenzhane Wallis) as well as Jennifer Aniston's first Golden Globe nod since 2003.

At the ungodly hour of 5:30am Pst, Hollywood shuffled to their collective televisions to hear the the nominees for the 72nd annual Golden Globes. You can see the complete list here! Almost immediately, everyone from Emma Stone to Eddie Redmayne put out statements about how excited they are to even be considered. You can read all the official reactions here! However, a handful of nominees were rebels. Were they going to contain their delight to written statements most likely vetted by their people? No. Instead they quickly went off-script to show a sliver of personality on Twitter. Whether funny, or silly, or just shocked, these Golden Globe nominees have already won the award for self-deprecating gratitude. .@goldenglobes Thank you seems too small, will you marry isn't appropriate, I love you is true maybe too soon but you did have me at hello.???? — Gina (@HereIsGina) December 11, 2014 Still buzzing from the @goldenglobes nomination for #Derek. »

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, continuing this week's exciting slew of award nods after Wednesday's SAG Award nominees. There are way more movie nominations to go around this time, what with both the drama and musical/comedy categories, so even tohough there are a lot of the same names seen at the SAGs, there are still some new entrants to award season, like Selma and Big Eyes (though still no American Sniper or Unbroken). There are some surprises in the TV categories, however; while there are lots of repeat names from years past (and this year's Emmys), it's exciting to see Jane the Virgin (and its star, Gina Rodriguez) and Transparent up for Globes! The Globes air Jan. 11, so see everyone who's nominated here.

The Hollywood Foreign Press announced the nominees for the 2015 Golden Globe Awards earlier this morning. The awards honor the work that has been done in film and television, and the winners will be announced January 11th, 2015 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
One of my favorite films of the year, Birdman, leads the pack with seven nominations in the film categories. Then one of my favorite series, Fargo, leads the TV nominations with five. There were a ton of great films and TV shows this last year, and it's good to see many of my favorites being honored for their greatness.
