This new trailer introduces you to the more of the band of classic game champions who must join forces to defeat this suspiciously specific alien invasion.
It's also the first time I've realized that the Peter Dinklage character is completely based off of King of Kong's Billy Mitchell.
Dinklage even plays the Donkey Kong champion in PIXELS. So, much like the rest of the movie, it's pretty on the nose.
Given that the last decade of summer blockbusters have mostly aimed right at the nostalgic feels, PIXELS seems like just another in a long run of cynical executive decision making. Let's hope it's more fun than that.
We haven't seen a Del Toro directed movie since 2013's fantastic Pacific Rim, so you'd better believe the world is ready for a return to his particular brand of horror.
He told Deadline Hollywood that he wanted this film to feel like a "throwback" in an attempt to get away from the found-footage/B-movie horror that has grown en vogue over the past decade or so. And that's just what this movie appears to show.
Hollywood seems to have entirely dried up the well on fresh ideas, so much so that the 1999 scifi classic Galaxy Quest is being adapted into a TV series. There are no details about the cast or plot yet, but the film version's writer, director, and producer are all on board for the series, so there's hope! But if they can't get Alan Rickman to reprise his role? Why bother?
Variety is reporting that Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games, Captain America) has joined the cast of the upcoming live action Beauty and the Beast. He joins stars Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, and Kevin Kline as a brand new character, a "neurotic maestro" grand piano named Cadenza.
What do you think of the film's inclusion of a new character? Are you excited to see Stanley Tucci join the film?
Well, it's April 20. If you do what people do on 4/20, then you'd probably enjoy having some entertainment to go with your entertainment.
For your enjoyment, we put together a list of some of the most necessary comedies to watch as you celebrate this hollowed holiday.
Coming soon (not really) to BBC near you!
Daniel Radcliffe is set to play Sam Houser, the co-creator and current president of Rockstar Games. Houser is credited with both the creation of GTA and upping the ante as far as video game violence was concerned.
This, as you know from the early 2000s, drew the ire of Florida attorney Jack Thompson who was known for suing a variety of media outlets for racy and violent content.
As of now the part of Jack Thompson has not been cast. I for one am hoping Idris Elba is up for the roll, despite looking nothing like Jack Thompson.
See, I think it could work.

“We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie,” said Grahame-Smith.
"The story really lends itself to being a movie and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to," said Cawthon.
The project is currently out to writers.
Adam Stone and Jay Ireland will exec produce. Jon Berg and Nik Mavinkurve are overseeing for Warners.
Some benevolent soul masterminded a Spotify playlist that offers almost all of the songs from Wes Anderson's eight films. Some of the Mark Mothersbough tracks are missing from The Life Aquatic and the playlist also lacks a few of the Indian Satyajit Ray masterpieces featured in The Darjeeling Limited.
Still, this is 166 tracks that span the works of a director known for deftly weaving music around his narratives. So, go ahead and listen while picturing yourself living the disaffected life in an extremely symmetrical, pastel dollhouse.
