Pixels video game characters

The film Pixels stars a few humans that each enjoy a great deal of popularity. Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Josh Gad (The Book of Mormon, Frozen), Michelle Monaghan (True Detective), and Adam Sandler (all pictured above) must band together to defeat an unusual host of alien invaders. But those three actors might not truly be the stars of the film, because the invading aliens are all veterans of classic games. Now the Pixels video game characters have been revealed.

The feature is based on the short by Patrick Jean in which a human city is besieged by game characters, but we didn’t know which ones would make the jump. Now we know that Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and sprites from games such as Q*Bert, Space Invaders, and Galaga will all show up in the feature film version of PixelsRead More »

Simpsons character dies

Last year, Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told fans they’d be killing off a character in the upcoming season. He even gave a tease of who it may be, hinting the person voicing that character won an Emmy for voicing that character. At the time, we tried to narrow it down but the season came and went without that death. The reason was the tragic passing of voice actor Marcia Wallace, who voiced Ms. Krabapple. The Simpsons team thought gracefully killing that character as a tribute to Wallace was enough death for one year.

That was last year. This year, Jean promises the previously hinted character will still die, and even added to his initial hint. Read the quotes about the Simpsons character death below. Read More »

Edgar Wright on The World's End set

Even as we’re still talking about the backstory that led to Edgar Wright‘s abrupt departure from Marvel’s Ant-Man, it seems that Wright is pushing forward towards his next film. Reportedly, that project is likely to be Baby Driver, an original script from Wright that the director originally started talking about back in 2009. Back then, he called it “not an adaptation or anything, or a sequel to anything else.” After the Ant-Man kerfuffle, that probably seems incredibly appealing. Read More »
