Meet Josh Gad’s Ludlow Lamonsoff in Pixels featurette

14 hours ago | 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. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by Pac-man, »

You Might Be "Blindsided" By How Dumb This Is

26 June 2015 9:31 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Blindsided, alternatively known as Penthouse North, was first announced in 2011, screened at festivals in 2013, aired on Lifetime in January 2014 and is only just now making its way to DVD--a winding road to be sure, and one that generally does not bode well for a film’s quality. Written by seasoned thriller writer David Loughery (Lakeview Terrace, Obsessed) and directed by Joseph Ruben (cult horror classic The Stepfather), Blindsided stars Michelle Monaghan as Sara, a photojournalist who was blinded by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan (though her pretty face was conveniently left unmarred by the explosion), and Michael Keaton as Hollander, a vicious criminal determined to find the diamonds that are supposedly hidden in Sara’s glamorous New York City penthouse.

Stream This: Sofia Coppola Shares Father-Daughter Time in Somewhere

26 June 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[Editor’s Note: Welcome to “Stream This,” our weekly feature where we single out television programs and movies of considerable merit that are available on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Crackle, or other streaming services. Look for a new Stream This every week.] Most parent-child films end in a reiteration or reappraisal of easy, familiar morals: pay attention to your home, don't get obsessed with your career, appreciate your partner, and listen to your children. Sometimes, these reminders come with a pseudo-righteous backbone of religion or familial legacy, but the roots of all of these feeling are in the so-called greatness, and unerring support available within in the confines, of the nuclear family unit. The fact that Sofia Coppola doesn't buy into this rigid scheme in Somewhere is part of what makes her fourth feature so unique and unpredictable, but it certainly isn't the sole reason Coppola's depiction of a celebrity father-daughter diptych is so strangely moving and revealingly reflexive. [caption id="attachment_478705" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Focus[/caption] From the outset, the relationship between Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) and his daughter, Cleo (Elle Fanning), isn't ideal, considering Johnny spends most of his free time roaming around Los Angeles for one-night-stands, »

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!  »

What are the Saturn Awards? 10 things you need to know

25 June 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Saturn Awards have been around for over 40 years, and chances are you've never heard of them. So what are they, then? As someone who has covered two past ceremonies (2010 and 2011), I was frankly shocked to discover that actual giant celebrities and directors attend the show every year. Among the big names the years I attended: A-list filmmakers Guillermo del Toro and Sam Raimi, "Carrie" and "Let Me In" star Chloe Grace Moretz, "True Detective's" Michelle Monaghan and "Chuck" star Zachary Levi. Not exactly the Oscars! But still impressive for a ceremony that isn't televised or generally talked about. So what are they, then, again? With the 41st annual ceremony set to take place tonight, below I've put together a list of 10 things you need to know about this mysterious, long-running Hollywood fete. »

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. Pixels stars Peter Dinklage, Kevin James, Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan describe what it was like working with their favorite 80s video game characters who are brought to life.

Director Chris Columbus teases that the end of Pixels presents a world that includes practically every 1980s video game character ever, while others explain that the production tried to stay true to the essence of these games, as we see a scene where Adam Sandler's character explains that you have to shoot each Centipede in the head.

The ‘True Detective’ Effect: Which Season 2 Star Is Most Primed for a McConaissance

19 June 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The blockbuster first season of “True Detective” wasn’t just a score for HBO and internet fodder for obsessive TV fans — it proved to be a genuine vehicle for its acting talent seeking comebacks, sustainability or a breakout. The series played a key role in the excessively covered 2014 overhaul of Matthew McConaughey‘s career — aka The McConaissance — and his subsequent reentry onto Hollywood’s A-list. It also thrust Woody Harrelson back into the spotlight as a Golden Globe nominee. Michelle Monaghan got to try on a leading lady hat while maintaining indie grit thanks to show creator Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Fukunaga’s dark. »

'Breaking Bad' Star Aaron Paul Just Got A New Gig On Hulu (... Bitch) - MTV

Breaking Bad” fans, have you forgiven Aaron Paul for his whoa-not-cool-bro Jesse Pinkman spin-off joke from the other day yet? He did send out those “Hugs and kisses” as an apology, yo. Well, hopefully so, because today he’s got some actual exciting news to celebrate — which helps explain that congratulatory dessert pic that sent everyone into a theory-throwing tailspin. According to Entertainment Weekly, Paul has made a big new score: a role in a Hulu series called “The Way,” co-starring “True Detective” star Michelle Monaghan. The show, a drama which’ll start with a 10 episode run, is said to be all about a “controversial movement” concerning the woes of being wedded along with other relationships and power struggles — with Paul starring as Eddie Cleary, a man who’s joined the weird cult cause after losi »

‘Breaking Bad’ Actor Aaron Paul Joins Hulu’s Original Series ‘The Way’

17 June 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has tapped a major Hollywood celebrity for its upcoming series The Way. Aaron Paul (of Breaking Bad fame) is joining the Hulu original series as both a lead actor and producer.

The Way centers on one family involved in a cult-like religious movement as they deal with issues like power, marriage, and the idea of going after the life you want to live. Paul will play opposite lead actress Michelle Monaghan as her husband Eddie Cleary. Eddie will question all he’s come to believe when his faith is challenged at its core.

Hulu announced The Way back in March 2015. Executive produced by Michelle Lee and Emmy-winner Jason Katims, The Way was written by Jessica Goldberg (of Parenthood fame). Hulu’s original series is produced by Katims’ True Jack Productions and Universal Television.

Paul is not the first big-league Hollywood actor to join one of Hulu’s original programming projects. »

Review: Has 'True Detective' fallen victim to the sophomore slump?

17 June 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Midway through watching the very first episode of "True Detective" season 1, Matthew McConaughey's Rust Cohle delivered what was already his fourth or fifth monologue about the pointlessness of existence, and I jotted down the following note: Do I want to watch many hours of McConaughey saying this (stuff)? As it turns out, I did. McConaughey was just that mesmerizing, Woody Harrelson wasn't far behind, and the direction of Cary Joji Fukunaga was so stunning that I was able to look past Cohle's lectures, the thinness of the female characters (or, really, anyone who wasn't Rust or Marty Hart), and the serial killer tropes and other recycled devices and even lines of dialogue peppered throughout Nic Pizzolatto's scripts. It had its flaws, but it was still one of the best things on TV a year ago. Pizzolatto's writing was memorable, mixing in hard-boiled detective cliches with Cohle's nihilist philosophy, »

Aaron Paul Will Star in a Hulu Series (But It’s Not a Breaking Bad Spinoff)

17 June 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Aaron Paul might've been joking about a Jesse Pinkman Breaking Bad spinoff, but he wasn't entirely kidding about getting his own show. Hulu has announced that Paul will star in the streaming platform's upcoming ten-episode series The Way, from Friday Night Lights executive producer Jason Katims. Once again, he'll play a guy with a "wayward past" — only now that past has driven him to "a controversial religious movement" instead of a meth-cooking chemistry teacher. Paul's character will reportedly experience a "crisis of faith" that puts a strain on his relationship with his wife, played by Michelle Monaghan, who has a lot of experience with this sort of thing. »

If you’re like me, you’ve been wanting Aaron Paul back on your TV screen as soon as Breaking Bad ended. Fortunately, we now finally have what we’ve been asking for, as Aaron Paul is returning to TV in The Way, an upcoming Hulu series from executive producer Jason Katims (Friday Night LightsParenthood). The Emmy Award-winning actor has been cast as the male lead of The Way. Paul will play Eddie Cleary, a convert to a controversial movement with a wayward past. He’s a husband (to Michelle Monaghan’s Sarah Cleary, a high level member of said movement navigating the truths — and untruths — colliding in her life) and father who suffers a crisis of faith when all that he’s come to accept as truth in his life is fundamentally challenged. The Way examines a family at the center of a controversial movement struggling with relationships, »
