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

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. 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. The idea of aliens misinterpreting video games as a sign of war is also good one, so there is at least potential. For me, it will likely come down to how much Sandler puts himself into the movie.

If there were any doubt that Sony's pursuing a comedic angle with its upcoming animated adaptation of Rovio's wildly popular Angry Birds game, today's announcement that the voice cast has been thoroughly stocked with comedy stars should put it safely to rest. Led by Saturday Night Live vet Jason Sudeikis and co-starring a number of his former co-stars, including Maya Rudolph and Bill Hader, the production certainly seems like it's after the laugh factor.
