Pixels - Extended Trailer


Back in the eighties, NASA sent a time capsule up into space to connect with possible life forces on other planets. But when neighbouring aliens discover a feed of classic arcade games such as Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede and Space Invaders, they interpret it is a threat of war. Fearing for the safety of their planet, they send pixelated monsters in the shape of beloved video game characters to Earth to destroy mankind, and the only people who can stop it are record-breaking gamers Sam Brenner, Will Cooper, Ludlow Lamonsoff and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant. Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten is also on the team, providing a set of creative weapons to defeat the characters. But can this group of gaming experts really stop Pac Man eating up the city?

'Get Hard' Is Another Bromance Movie For Kevin Hart


Kevin Hart Will Ferrell Josh Gad Ice Cube

For an actor who has said he will never play a gay character, Kevin Hart has certainly embraced the bromance, movies that use a romantic-comedy structure to explore an emotional friendship between two men.

Just this past January, Hart infamously said that he would turn down a gay role if it was offered to him. "It's not because I have any ill will or disrespect," he said. "It's because I don't think I'm really going to dive into that role 100 percent because of insecurities about myself trying to play that part. Does that make sense? Like, what I think people are going to think while I'm trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way that I'm supposed to."

Pixels Trailer


In 1982, Earth created a time capsule of popular culture from the era, and sent it into space in order to establish contact with extra-terrestrial life. Somehow, an ancient race of alien lifeforms that have never had any other contact with mankind did not understand the meaning of the 'message'. They especially take offence to the inclusion of 'Pac Man' and 'Donkey Kong', and assemble an army of pixelated, murderous 1980s video game characters and send them back to Earth to destroy the humans. With the world on the brink of destruction by a giant 'Pac Man', mankind has just one hope: a hodgepodge collection of retro gamers, using their old techniques to defeat the greatest video game boss of all time.

The Wedding Ringer Review


Good

An unapologetically silly movie that manages to hit the right notes, this free-wheeling comedy makes up for its corny premise with sharp writing and acting. And as it keeps the audience laughing, it's also quietly finding some rather intriguing things to say about masculinity in American society. Thankfully, preaching a message is never this film's intention. And both Kevin Hart and Josh Gad bring so much charm and energy to their roles that they instantly become a movie duo we'd like to see together again and again.

Gad plays Doug, the nervous groom preparing for his wedding to Gretchen (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), a girl far hotter than he ever imagined he'd get for a wife. But Doug has no friends who are willing to be his best man and groomsmen, so he turns to his wedding planner (Serricchio) for help getting in touch with an underground service that provides them. Enter Jimmy (Hart), the fast-talking, quick-thinking best man for hire who assembles a hilariously rag-tag group of "friends" as groomsmen. As they indulge in some condensed bonding so they can convince everyone they're best pals, these guys actually begin to have fun together. And Doug begins to hope that maybe this isn't just a professional partnership.

Yes, what we have here is a bromance between Doug and Jimmy, two friendless guys who discover that maybe together they can change their lives. Filmmaker Jeremy Garelick never tries to obscure the standard rom-com structure, and the simple plot is utterly predictable, but there are surprising currents of comedy and emotion running everywhere. Hart and Gad manage to bring out all kinds of riotous humour, underlying insecurities and general comic mayhem in each scene. Hart's cocky run-on dialogue is hilarious, and matched perfectly by Gad's gung-ho physicality. But even more intriguing are the darker layers beneath the silly surface. And everything is livened up by a raucously ridiculous supporting cast, including veterans Ken Howard and Mimi Rogers as Gretchen's too-intense parents and an underused Cloris Leachman as her bedraggled granny.

The Wedding Ringer - Alternative Trailer


A wedding is a time for all of your friends and family to come together and celebrate your union with another person and the start of your new family. But for someone like Doug Harris (Josh Gad) who has no friends and is engaged to a woman deemed 'too good for him', it's looking to be a nightmare. With the day of the wedding drawing steadily closer, Doug is convinced to hire a best man and group of groomsmen, and calls upon the services of Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc. From there, Doug and Jimmy have a week to establish themselves as 'best friends' and make themselves look like people that have spent the best part of their lives together.
