PIXELS Logo Unveiled; Film Will Include Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Space Invaders, and More

Unless it’s a drama (of which he has two on the horizon), it’s hard to get excited about an Adam Sandler movie these days.  That said, this might change with Sony’s upcoming action comedy Pixels.  Directed by Chris Columbus and based on the short film of the same name, the story revolves around a few 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.  Sandler stars alongside Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox, and Kevin James as the President of the United States (I know), but today Sony has unveiled the official Pixels logo and revealed which recognizable video game characters will be popping up in the film.  It’s a hodge-podge of great game icons, from Pac-Man to Donkey Kong to Q*bert, and I’m really curious to see how they’ll be realized in the large-scale action-adventure film.

Hit the jump to check out the official Pixels logo, a high-resolution version of the previously released image, and the full press release and synopsis from Sony.  Pixels opens in theaters on May 15, 2015.

Over 12 New GET ON UP Images Show James Brown Coming to Life

by     Posted 2 days ago

get-on-up-images

Universal Pictures has released several new images for Get on Up, the James Brown biopic directed by Tate Taylor (The Help).  42 star Chadwick Boseman plays the Godfather of Soul in the film.  I’m not sure what kind of role there is for these kinds of films in the post Walk Hard universe.  Ever since that parody so thoroughly nailed the biopic genre the standard structure for these things has become so transparent.  It could very well be that this movie breaks out of the rather constraining narrative box, though most of the elements I’ve seen don’t indicate that it will.

Still, it could be a nice treat for Brown fans and the new images look handsome enough.  Brown didn’t live a boring life by any means, so I’m sure hitting those required bases will provide some kind of enjoyment.  The film also stars Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter, Jill Scott, and Dan Aykroyd.  It opens on August 1st.  Check out the trailer if you missed it.  Hit the jump for the new Get on Up images.

PIXELS Image Shows Off Adam Sandler, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage as the Arcaders

Sony has released the first Pixels image.  The film will have a presence at San Diego Comic-Con next week, but while we wait for that “special video announcement” from director Chris Columbus that Sony Pictures Entertainment is teasing, how about checking out the very first still from the film?  Pixels will show what happens when aliens catch a glimpse of classic arcade games and misread them as a declaration of war.  When the ETs 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.

The feature was inspired by a short film of the same name that hit the web back in 2010 depicting what might happen if New York City was attacked by some very familiar 8-bit characters.  Hit the jump to check out the Pixels image as well as the original short film.  Pixels will arrive in theaters on May 15, 2015 and also stars Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad and Brian Cox.

Paramount Pictures has released a collection of high-resolution Hercules images from director Brett Ratner’s upcoming sword-and-sandals actioner.  The film is a revisionist take on the classic myth and takes place after Hercules’ famous twelve labors, as we find him “traveling with a group of mercenaries and cashing in on his famous name until he’s hired to train an army for an epic battle.”  Dwayne Johnson takes on the lead role this time around, and as gleaned by these new images, he looks to have his hands full with plenty of foes—both human and non-human.  Also clear from these new images: the man can wear the hell out of a lion hat.

Hit the jump to check out the new Hercules images.  The film also stars John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph FiennesPeter Mullan, Rufus Sewell, Robert Maillet, and Irina Shayk.  Hercules opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 25th.

Jack Black’s R.L. Stine Revealed in First GOOSEBUMPS Movie Images; Black Discusses His Iteration of the Author

Author R.L. Stine’s series of Goosebumps books were a staple of nearly every 90s kid’s childhood.  They had just the right amount of darkness and creepiness while still being accessible, and the twist endings recalled episodes of The Twilight Zone.  The books spawned a cheesy but still enjoyable TV series of the same name, but director Rob Letterman (Gulliver’s Travels) is bringing the property to life again with a new feature film, and now the first Goosebumps movie images have been unveiled.  Jack Black plays Stine in the film, and the author’s creations unexpectedly come to life thanks to a teen neighbor (Dylan Minnette).  Subsequently, Stine must team up with his neighbor and daughter (Odeya Rush) before the numerous and varied monsters destroy their small town.

Hit the jump to take a look at the first Goosebumps images and to see what Black had to say about his take on Stine.  Goosebumps opens in theaters on August 7, 2015.

Just a couple weeks after the first Max Steel images landed online (check those out here) we have a look at some new pics, which have a much more polished, high resolution look.  The Stewart Hendler directed film based on the Mattel action figure and its accompanying Disney XD animated show just wrapped production last month in Wilmington, North Carolina.  The shoot saw star Ben Winchell (Disney’s A.N.T. Farm, Necessary Roughness) training 6-8 hours a day studying Parkour, martial arts, boxing and fencing to prepare for the role.

Max Steel also stars Ana Villafañe (Hiding) as Sofia Martinez,  Maria Bello (A History of Violence) as Max’s mom, Molly McGrath and Andy Garcia (the Ocean’s 11 franchise) as Dr. Miles Edwards.  The film was penned by Marvel Studios veteran Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World).  Hit the jump to take a look at the new Max Steel images.
