Pixels Trailer Crosses Retro Games With An Alien Disaster Movie Here’s the new trailer for Sony’s new video game disaster film, Pixels. The movie, directed by Chris Columbus, stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad. The trailer certainly seems very Sandler-y and that is a pretty big negative to me. There is some real talent on board here though, who are capable of making a good movie.

Ron Howard Rounds Out Inferno Cast With Felicity Jones, Sidse Babett Knudsen and More Imagine Entertainment Back when Felicity Jones was merely on the shortlist for the standalone Star Wars movie, many wondered if she would have time in her schedule since she was also linked to the next Dan Brown adaptation from Ron Howard. Then, when she was officially signed on to the secretive galactic spin-off, it seemed possible that maybe she would drop the less-exciting franchise. Nope. The current Oscar nominee is finding time for both.

While promoting his upcoming new film, Spy, Paul Feig also talked about the upcoming all female Ghostbusters film he is been working on. He says that his intention is not to parody the original films but rather have a new story with a few nods to the originals.

If WRECK-IT RALPH and THE LEGO MOVIE are any indication, audiences dig films that make them feel like a kid again, especially when childhood favorite games are utilized. Chris Columbus (HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE, HOME ALONE) aims to take advantage of that wave of nostalgia with his latest picture, PIXELS.
