It's like you can hear the pitch meeting:
"What we made a movie with zombies...
... that are also kids?"
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.
DC Comics' Supergirl is coming to TV this November. Following the adventures of Kryptonian refugee, Kara Zor-El (Superman's cousin), Supergirl looks like a lot of TV shows combined into one. We have a Devil Wears Prada-esque tough female boss in Calista Flockhart's Cat Grant, and a secret government agency dealing with extraterrestrial threats! How much awesome cliches can one show have?
Supergirl better be strong if she's going to carry that many plotlines.
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.
This week, the television 'Upfronts' are happening. All the networks trot out their upcoming shows so the media and critics can get a first look at what the rest of the year has in store.
Enter The Muppets.
It looks surprisingly like The Office. Though it has way more puppets.
Also, Kermit sounds weird.
