Becky red band trailer

If you only know Kevin James from shows like The King of Queens or movies like Paul Blart: Mall Cop or Pixels, you’re about to see him like you’ve never seen him before: as a ruthless killer. And Becky, the upcoming film in which he plays the villain, isn’t a spoof or played for laughs – it’s all done with a straight face. Check out a new red band trailer and a clip from the movie below.

Adam Sandler has tried his hand at getting serious in more than one movie, so it makes sense for his pal and occasional co-star Kevin James to give it a try, too. The former King of Queens gets scary in Becky, a new home invasion thriller that requires James to play the heavy. And you know what? It looks like he’s doing a pretty darn good job. Watch the Becky trailer below.

Villain Kevin James

The upcoming action thriller Becky had our attention because Simon Pegg was cast to play the film’s villain, a merciless escaped convict who invades a family’s lake house while they’re on a weekend getaway. Unfortunately, that movie has lost Simon Pegg, but they’ve replaced with another intriguingly unlikely actor in the role: the King of Queens himself, Kevin James. Read More »

True Memoirs Of An International Assassin Trailer

Since Adam Sandler has been making Netflix a little less tolerable with the presence of movies such as The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, it only makes sense that his buddy Kevin James follows him over there too.

The comedian who co-starred with Adam Sandler in Pixels, Grown Ups and I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry heads out on his own again with a new action comedy called True Memoirs of an International Assassin. The movie finds Kevin James as an author who sees his novel about a skilled assassin published as a non-fiction memoir, which makes some really dangerous people think that he’s a deadly hitman. Sounds pretty believable, right?

Pixels featurettes

Summer isn’t even halfway over, so there are still plenty of big movies coming to theaters in the next couple months. And surprisingly enough, one of the more entertaining films could end up being an Adam Sandler vehicle. Maybe I’m in the minority, but the trailers for the video game inspired action adventure comedy Pixels actually have me a little excited for this July release, despite the involvement of Sandler.

And if you’ve been wanting to know a little more about the film from director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), a couple new featurettes have surfaced, diving into the 8-bit assault on Earth. Watch the Pixels featurettes after the jump! Read More »

Pixels trailer

By now, you probably know if you’re going to see Pixels or not. Directed by Chris Columbus, the film stars Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Kevin James and Michelle Monaghan as former video game champions who are asked to save the world when real life video game characters invade Earth. Think Independence Day starring the cast of The King of Kong.

If you still aren’t sure and are hoping for some new nugget to get excited about in this second Pixels trailer, it’s probably not going to do it. There is some new footage in here, including a bit with Kevin James killing a Smurf, as well as some background on the characters, but for the most part its the same few set pieces as the last trailer. The optimist in me is hoping Sony is simply holding back lots of other moments for the theater, but that tends not to be the case with the films of James and Sandler. Watch the new Pixels trailer below. Read More »
