Pixels – Hi-Tech 8-Bit Fun!

Pixels - Pac-Man

As someone who got really good at Galaga in the eighties – and had found Adam Sandler virtually intolerable in everything he did after Funny People – I was pleasantly surprised by how often I laughed at Pixels.

Even the premise – aliens misinterpret a message of simple greetings that included samples of arcade games as a declaration of war and sent real-life versions to conquer/destroy the Earth – had the cool feel of a vintage video game. Also, it was based on a terrific short film you can check out on YouTube.

Alien Invasion Trailer: Pixels!

Pixels - Space Invaders

Somehow, aliens misinterpreted an attempt at communication that depicted, among other things, several video games, as a declaration of war. They created Godzilla-sized versions of those videogames and sent them off to destroy the Earth.

Silly aliens!

On July 24th, the fate of the Earth will be in the hands of a group of ’80s videogame champions. Check out the new trailer for Pixels after the jump.

This Is No Game Trailer: Pixels!

Pixels - Pac-Man

The Earth is being invaded – by actual space Invaders. Also Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and more – so the US President (Kevin James) drafts his old buddy, master video game player Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), to help save the world.

Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus, so it shouldn’t be the usual Adam Sandler goof. It opens on July 24th. Check out the new trailer following the jump.

First Look: Spectre!

Spectre Teaser Poster

What would a James Bond movie be without stunning locations and terrifying situations?

Spectre opens on November 6th.

I Say Hello You Say Goodbye Trailer: Aloha!

Aloha - Cooper, Stone

A romantic comedy about a military contractor, his ex and the Air Force watchdog assigned to keep him out of trouble? Nope, it’s not based on a Nicholas Sparks novel (though it does star a few alumni of Sparks-based movies).

Aloha was written and directed by Cameron Crowe. The cast includes Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone, Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray and John Krasinski. Check out the trailer after the jump – it looks like it deserves its A-list cast.

Aloha opens May 29th.
