For anybody like me who hit their rebellious teen years during the Noughties you’ve got to admit that the much-quoted ‘Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy’ played at least a small role in your adult development. Hell, I bet even Paul played its part.

A new image has been released concerning The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, featuring a hard-eyed and determined looking Katniss. After all, Peeta has been kidnapped and is being used as a puppet by President Snow, no wonder she looks so steely.

In 2012, when Welsh writer, director Gareth Evans set free his baby, The Raid: Redemption, western audiences embraced his Indonesian action caper resulting to be a confirmed cult classic of action and martial arts. Who were these unknown Indonesian actors? Let alone, who was Gareth Evans? We watched, we were intrigued and we learned. The intense, brutal and bloody Indonesian sub-titled film cost $1:1 million and made $9.1 million at the box office.

Have you ever heard a plot so ridiculous that it just had to be awesome? Well, that definitely seems to be the case for the upcoming comedy Pixels. Just listen to this: Aliens misinterpret classic video games as a declaration of war and attack the Earth, using the games as models. The President of the United States (Kevin James) calls upon his childhood best friend and former video game champion (Adam Sandler) to lead a team of old school arcaders (Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
Come on, how stupid does that sound? Very, to be honest. But it has so much potential to be awesome. An image has been released from the film, depicting Sandler, Gad and Dinklage (who, for Game of Thrones fans, is looking very questionable) in matching blue outfits with Michelle Monaghan dressed to impress. What’s going on in this picture? Who knows? But my guess is some kind of cheesy, slow motion walk as the heroes prepare for battle.
The casting of Kevin James and Adam Sandler is sure to put people off, considering they haven’t made a good film for years, but for gamers, this could be one hell of a film.
Pixels is out summer 2015.

There are certain things any Marvel film has to have. A Stan Lee cameo, references to the wider universe, and enough hints and winks for the comic book fan to get excited over. An unnamed source has just apparently released the credits for Guardians of the Galaxy, and it looks like Guardians has Marvel written throughout its DNA! Spoilers ahead, by the way, if you count cast lists as spoilers.
