Oh buddy, if you’re excited for Chris Columbus’ upcoming sci-fi comedy Pixels, then this has been a banner week for you!  The movie shows the outcome of aliens catching a glimpse of classic arcade games and misreading them as a declaration of war.  In response to their attack, President Will Cooper (Kevin James) recruits his childhood best friend and former ‘80s video game champion, Jules Brenner (Adam Sandler), to pull together a team of the best arcaders and save the world.  About a week ago, we saw the first image of those arcaders, the logo and a list of classic games that will be featured in the movie, and a movie poster from Comic-Con.  Now, we have a special behind-the-scenes video that features co-star Peter Dinklage in character as he welcomes viewers to the Electric Dreams Factory.

Also starring Josh Gad, Brian Cox, and Michelle Monaghan, Pixels is slated for release on May 15, 2015.  Hit the jump to watch the video.

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE Trailer Ends Racism in America

While we brought you a teaser trailer for the racial satire Dear White People a month or so ago, the new official trailer for the film is now available.  To be quite honest, I prefer this new cut to the previous one since it gives a much better sense of the comedy’s tone.  There’s plenty of social commentary to be found and it appears as if no topic is out of bounds, be it weaves, interracial dating, or the definition of racism itself.  I fully expect lots of nervous laughter in theaters later this fall.

Written and directed by Justin SimienDear White People stars Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon P. Bell, Kyle Gallner, Malcolm Barrett, Brittany Curran, Marque Richardson, and Dennis Haysbert, and opens in theaters October 17th.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

IF I STAY Trailer Featuring Chloë Grace Moretz and Jamie Blackley

The latest trailer for If I Stay is now online, which gives fans of Gayle Forman’s YA novel a glimpse into the feature film.  Director R.J. Cutler’s adaptation stars Chloë Grace Moretz as Mia, a talented young musician who balances her aspirations of attending the Juilliard School with the budding romance of her devoted boyfriend Adam, played by Jamie Blackley.  A tragic event puts those Earthly concerns behind her as Mia must decide whether to fight for her life with Adam by her side, or give in to her new condition.  The new trailer offers quite a bit more bed-side footage than the previously released prologue trailer, but also appears to give away some of the story’s beats.  Viewer beware.

Also starring Mireille EnosJoshua LeonardLiana LiberatoAisha Hinds, and Stacy KeachIf I Stay opens in theaters August 22nd.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay to Produce MANIMAL Adaptation for Sony Pictures Animation

When Hollywood sets their sights on an adaptation, you never quite know how it’s going to turn out.  Is the tone going to be similar to the original and recreate what made it endearing, or will it be a tongue-in-cheek contemporary take?  Either approach can fail spectacularly or succeed beyond all expectations.  Now when the property in question is the short-lived TV series Manimal, it’s easy to write it off.  Enter Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.  You know what you’re getting with Gary Sanchez Productions, who might just be the best team to tackle the oddity that will be the Sony Pictures Animation live-action/animation hybrid, Manimal.  Hit the jump for more.

New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Clip Has a Finger on the Pulse of the Film’s Humor

by     Posted 30 days ago

We’re walking a fine line with Marvel’s marketing for Guardians of the Galaxy, with one side being in danger of giving away too much and the other offering teases to fans and newcomers alike.  In the last four days alone, we’ve seen not one, but two clips from the film.  Now, since audience reactions to an early screening were overwhelmingly positive, perhaps they want to encourage that great word of mouth with yet another clip.  This one does a solid job of not only showing off the film’s sense of humor, but further exploring the relationships between the characters early on in their tenuous arrangement.  Good stuff, but I’ve already seen more than enough to convince me to check this one out in theaters.

Starring Chris PrattZoe SaldanaDave BautistaLee PaceKaren GillanGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroMichael RookerJohn C. Reilly, and Peter Serafinowicz, and featuring the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin DieselGuardians of the Galaxy opens August 1st.  Hit the jump to check out the latest clip.

TV’s the place to be!  That’s what award-winning movie actors are starting to learn thanks to the critical and financial success of shows like HBO’s Game of Thrones and True Detective.  The cable network’s latest series adaptation tackles Westworld, writer-director Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi movie that starred Yul Brynner as a malfunctioning Wild West robot at a futuristic adult amusement park.  While HBO could certainly have gone bonkers with a premise like that, their first casting announcements come with some gravitas.  Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins and Golden Globe-nominated Evan Rachel Wood have been locked in as series leads.  Hit the jump for more.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Reviews: Audience Reactions to Early Screenings Overwhelmingly Positive

Normally when we bring you audience reactions from early screenings of highly anticipated movies, we try to bring a balance of positive and negative responses in an attempt to paint an unbiased picture.  In the case of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, that proved more difficult than usual since reactions were overwhelmingly positive.  Praise flowed for director James Gunn and his successful balance of humor and action in the difficult space opera genre.  Oddball characters Groot and Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper respectively) got a fair share of the spotlight, and Dave Bautista’s Drax was called “better than Superman” by one viewer.  Overall, things are looking very, very good for the Guardians‘ debut, and for a possible sequel in the years to come.

Also starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Karen GillanGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroMichael RookerJohn C. Reilly, and Peter SerafinowiczGuardians of the Galaxy opens in 3D on August 1st.  Hit the jump to take a look at some early reactions to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Geek Gifts: THE DARK KNIGHT’s Joker in Bank-Robber Mode from Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles

If you’re like me, you remember quite clearly the first time you saw Heath Ledger as the Joker in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.  In fact, that entire opening sequence is rather memorable, but the appearance by the Clown Prince of Crime was the cherry on top.  Now, you can reenact the scene itself (scaled down, and in the relative safety of your own home, that is) with the new Joker collectible figure from Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles.  This bank-robbing version of the late Ledger’s now-iconic character comes with interchangeable heads, 30 points of articulation, and way more weapons in his pockets than simply knives and lint.
