Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, and Peter Dinklage battle Pac-Man in 'Pixels'

In the high-concept sci-fi action comedy Pixels, aliens misinterpret satellite feeds of classic arcade video games such as Space Invaders and Centipede as a declaration of war and launch an attack on earth using the same eight-bit characters and strategies.

In the Chris Columbus-directed film, the U.S. president (Kevin James) recruits his childhood friends to help save the country. Back in 1982, his three buddies were arcade prodigies, but cut to the present day: “They’re really three losers,” laughs Columbus. They’ve ended up a TV mechanic (Adam Sandler), a felon (Peter Dinklage), and a conspiracy theorist (Frozen‘s Josh Gad). But, they’re still the best guys for the job, and after teaming up with a more up-to-date weapons expert (True Detective‘s Michelle Monaghan), they have no choice but to be ready for battle.

If you have arguably the biggest movie star in the world in your comic book movie, you don’t hide her in the background with a bunch of lesser mutants.

In the new time-twisting sequel, out May 23, Wolverine is sent back to 1973 in order to stop Mystique from assassinating Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), the whiz behind the mutant-hunting Sentinels and all sorts of anti-mutant gizmos.

In the clip below, Mystique’s plans to get close to Trask are thwarted by his latest weapon. READ FULL STORY

A superhero always pays his debts.

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is joining the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

While we’re of the mind that the charismatic 43-year-old could play any badass he put his mind to, there are a few Marvel mutant characters that would match his diminutive height.
