First trailer for Pixels stars Pac-Man and Adam Sandler photo
First trailer for Pixels stars Pac-Man and Adam Sandler
by John-Charles Holmes

Remember when it was announced that they were making a full movie based off of that short film about arcade sprites across the New York skyline? Remember when it was also announced that Adam Sandler was starring in the project? Well, its time to make some new memories with the first trailer for the film, titled Pixels.

The spectacle of the trailer is actually as cool as you think it would be. There's something about the sight of watching a giant pixelated Pac-Man gobbling up the five-o-clock traffic that just feels... right. The tone of the movie so far seems to be skewing towards the recently popular comedy-action genre with half of the illustrious Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2 alumni, Adam Sandler and Kevin James playing some main leads.

Admittedly, the trailer doesn't look all too bad and actually managed to illicit a few chuckles from me with its setup reminiscent of something like Ghostbusters. Time will tell if the movie actually lives up to its enticing premise of arcade stars arriving on Earth as interstellar invaders, but either way, Pixels is set to be an uniquely memorable affair. Plus, there's a nod to Pac-Man creator, Toru Iwatani near the end of the trailer, so that's pretty cool to see in a major blockbuster movie.

Pixels will be landing in theaters this summer on July 24th.

First trailer for Lazer Team, the most funded film in Indiegogo history

I've never heard of Lazer Team, but the film has quite a huge following. Rooster Teeth (most know for sets of webseries like RWBY and Red vs. Blue) has released the trailer for their first film, and it looks pretty good. Cro...

First trailer for Skin Trade starring Dolph Lundgren and Tony Jaa

Dolph Lundgren was that one action star that should've been as big as Stallone, Schwarzenegger, or Van Damme but just never took off for some reason. He starred in as many films as those three, he always gives 100% regardles...

Hotel Transylvania 2 now has a trailer

Hotel Transylvania was a great big pile of mediocre filmmaking, but it was a rare hit for Sony's animation studio and we all still Genndy Tartakovsky. So a sequel was pretty inevitable, especially since we all know the ...

New Inside Out trailer shows ins and outs of Pixar's next film

Newest San Andreas trailer lays it on thick

San Andreas looks like the best kind of cheese. A disaster blockbuster that would've been more acceptable twenty years ago as landmarks get destroyed by tidal waves, a too serious tone sets the awkward mood, and all while a ...

First trailer for Self/less is pretty much the entire movie

Self/less has the kind of awesome sci-fi premise that sounds unique, but also sounds like it's been done before. If you're interested in Self/less, it stars Ben Kingsley as a wealthy, but ill rich man who uses his fortune to...

Latest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer brings the noise photo
Latest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer brings the noise
by Hubert Vigilla

The third trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has just hit the interwebs, and if you aren't excited enough for the film already, well, this will do it for you. (Though the too many cooks version of the Avengers poster was pretty spiffy, folks.)

Give the trailer a watch. I don't want to spoil any of it since there's some great new scenes in this, including a great appearance of someone who'll be important to the story.

First trailer for Dragonball Z: Fukkatsu no F features a golden Frieza

I don't think I've ever talked about it here, but Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods was one of the funnest animated films I saw last year. Didn't give it enough credit because it was essentially an hour of a dude punching a giant...

Red band trailer for Kill Me Three Times features killing more than three times

Kill Me Three Times is definitely an odd one. A dark comedy about an assassin played by Simon Pegg who stumbles into a mess of murdering and betrayal, it just looks kind of off kilter. That's in the best way possible, o...

First Crimson Peak trailer claims it is Guillermo Del Toro's ultimate masterpiece  photo
First Crimson Peak trailer claims it is Guillermo Del Toro's ultimate masterpiece
by Matthew Razak

A return to horror for Guillermo Del Toro is probably some of the most exciting stuff going on this year and with this first trailer for Crimson Peak we can see he's back in form with stunningly creepy visuals. If the director and genre didn't grab you the cast alone should, with Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston doing their utmost to creep us out and Mia Wasikowska nailing the fragile waif.

The real questions is if the film will actually be his ultimate masterpiece. That's some especially strong hyperbole for a film no one has seen and that took some haggling to get off the ground. Not only did this guy give us the likes of Pan's Labyrinth, but he's still got a lengthy career in front of him to construct an "ultimate masterpiece." I realize it's just marketing jargon, but come on.

Now here's a trailer our Matthew Razak, Bond aficionado and baby daddy, will definitely get a kick out of. When Guy Ritchie's attached to a project, such as The Man from U.N.C.L.E. adaptation of a 1960s spy TV show, you know...
