Open Road Films has corralled a finance partner to build its home-grown slate over the “coming years”, kicking off with the previously announced Sleepless Night.

Playing It Cool Movie Review

17 hours ago | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Playing It Cool is another installment in the slowly-growing sub-genre of rom-coms that aim to despise themselves. Chris Evans stars as a screenwriter who has managed to get hired for his worst nightmare, writing a romantic comedy.

Billed only as The Narrator (or Me in the official synopsis below), Evans is a man convinced that love doesn’t exist, which obviously leads to his believing that rom-coms are inherently stupid. Even if love were out there – he’s willing to concede that it’s a popular idea – the genre doesn’t show anything that relates to real life.

Then he meets Her (Michelle Monaghan) at a fundraising event, and finds that he can’t stop thinking about her. In a twist that has our man shaking his fist at the world, he now finds himself rolling through the cliches of the genre he can’t stand, and still has to write. »

Pac-Man’s A Bad Guy In First Pixels Clip

21 May 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m more divided on Pixels than on any other blockbuster hitting screens this summer. On one hand, it boasts Chris Columbus at the helm, and initial trailers have made the alien-invasion action-comedy seem like quite a lot of fun. But on the other hand, it has both Adam Sandler and Kevin James, two of the most detestable comedians working in Hollywood today. Here’s hoping that their distinctively lazy brand of comedy doesn’t derail the movie.

In honor of the 35th anniversary of Pac-Man, Sony has unveiled a new clip from the flick, which isn’t really anything more than an extension of a scene we already saw in one of the film’s earlier trailers, involving Denis Akiyama as Pac-Man creator Tōru Iwatani. Still, it’s the only moment from the preview that really warranted any laughs, so there’s no harm in the studio sending it our way once more. »

First Pixels Clip: Professor Iwatani Has a Heart-to-Heart with Pac-Man

20 May 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There's definitely something fun about the idea of aliens attacking Earth using gigantic, evil versions of the classic arcade game characters we know and love, but Sony just unveiled the very first Pixels clip in honor of Pac-Man's 35th anniversary and, well, it's just not very funny. There's definitely something clever about the whole Mini Cooper/ghost idea, but the father-son relationship between Pac-Man and his creator, Tōru Iwatani (Denis Akiyama), is a little too bizarre and isn't particularly funny either. Check out the first Pixels clip for yourself below. The film stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Peter DinklageMichelle Monaghan and Brian Cox, and is due in theaters on July 24th. Here's the official synopsis for Pixels: 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 »

Pixels: new trailer for Adam Sandler vs videogames movie

19 May 2015 10:34 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Pixels stars Adam Sandler, Pac-Man, Kevin James, Donkey Kong, Peter Dinklage and Space Invaders. Here's the trailer...

Sony and Adam Sandler might just have a hit on their hands with this one. Pixels, which arrives in cinemas in July, see Sandler and his chums (played by Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and, yep, Kevin James) becoming experts at videogames in the 1980s. Fast forward to the present day, and aliens discover feeds of said videogames, and decide that the planet Earth has declared war. As such gaming experts are required to lead the fight back, with the help of some iconic videogame characters.

Pixels, then, weaves in the likes of Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Space Invaders, and also features in its cast Ashley Benson, Michelle Monaghan and Brian Cox. Directing is Chris Columbus.

Pixels Already Looks Like Adam Sandler's Best Movie in Years

19 May 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Years after the human race sends a time capsule into outer space, a response comes back - but it's not what we'd hoped for. Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad, and Peter Dinklage all star in Pixels, a live-action-meets-cgi movie about '80s video-game characters that attack the world. Somehow, they've lived in outer space all these years and are now bent on destroying the population. Listen, I'm not saying this plot makes complete sense, but the trailer is pretty funny. Pac-Man is evil, Donkey Kong is tossing barrels, it's just bananas. (See what I did there?) The movie is out on July 24, and you can watch the trailers below. Check out the first trailer: »

James plays the president of the United States, who calls upon his childhood best friend (Sandler) and a team of middle-aged gamers to save the planet from an alien invasion that arrives. »
