Adam Sandler News

Is Adam Sandler A Good Fit For Netflix? Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions comedy brand continues to reap healthy profits (despite consistently poor critical receptions for its film releases), but there have been signs in recent years that consumer fatigue is starting to set in.

Pixels Can’t Squish Ant-Man at the Weekend Box Office Adam Sandler’s Pixels failed to stomp on Ant-Man this weekend at the domestic box office, with the latest Marvel superhero to hit the silver screen edging out the largely panned retro games comedy. In its second weekend Ant-Man banked a further $24.8 million at the box office, bringing its domestic total to over $106 million.

Kevin James & Michelle Monaghan on ‘Pixels’ & ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang 2′ While the major conceit of Pixels has to do with aliens invading Earth disguised as 8-bit arcade game characters and the has-been arcade game players (Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, and Peter Dinklage) who must defeat them, there are also a couple b-plots involving Kevin James as the president of the United States (and Sandler’s childhood friend) and Michelle Monaghan as Sandler’s romantic interest. We recently sat down with Kevin James and Michelle Monaghan to talk about their roles in the movie, as well as whether or not Monaghan would ever be interested in reteaming with Shane Black,

Pixels Review In 2010, French filmmaker Patrick Jean released an ingenious short film about classic video game characters attacking -- and pixelating -- New York City. Featuring gorgeous visuals and a winning premise, the short quickly went viral. Of course, Hollywood wasn't going to sit by and not cash in on a feature-length version, so Sony picked up the rights to Jean's creation, adapted it for the big screen and put a bunch of funny people in it -- namely Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and Michelle Monaghan.

Pixels Trailer Crosses Retro Games With An Alien Disaster Movie Here’s the new trailer for Sony’s new video game disaster film, Pixels.
