GEEK OUT! First four posters for PIXELS

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

Adam Sandler and Peter Dinklage (along with many more familiar faces) are keeping people curious about their upcoming video game-themed movie Pixels. The film has director Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) behind the camera, and the plot synopsis sounds like all kinds of crazy fun.

If the first four posters that just surfaced are any indication, we’ll see plenty of old school gaming references. That’s the Pac-Man poster up above, and you can see the Donkey Kong, Centipede, and Space Invaders posters after the jump. Also, while no trailer has popped up yet, there is a plot synopsis available to fill us in on some details (after the jump as well).

BOOKS: Official INTERSTELLAR novelization complements Christopher Nolan’s space epic

Interstellar novelization is a great film companion piece

With Christopher Nolan’s latest mind-bending movie Interstellar still in theaters in some places, it’s smart (if not considerate) to play it safe and avoid spoiler territory when casually discussing the film or its many complementary media companions. That’s the case when it comes to the official novelization of Interstellar from always-on-their-game publisher Titan Books, and the less you know about the novel before cracking that first chapter the better. The book has been on shelves for a while now, but I only recently finished reading through it. Whether you’ve seen the film or not, the official novelization of Nolan’s new sci-fi space epic is worth picking up as its own enjoyable adventure. That said, if you’ve seen the movie and want more, giving the novelization a read is an excellent way to clarify some details and dive a little deeper into the story.

Buy the novel, read a brief, spoiler-free breakdown of why it’s worth the pickup, and learn a little more about the Titan Books tie-in after the jump!

First trailer for THE GUNMAN finally elevates Sean Penn to full-blown force of nature

Sean Penn shoots back in first trailer for The Gunman

Believe it or not, we saw our first great image of Sean Penn in The Gunman way back in mid-July of last year, so it’s great to finally see a full-length trailer for the film pop up out of nowhere. From director Pierre Morel (Taken, From Paris with Love), the movie looks fairly straightforward when laying out its plot points, but if anything it should be fun to see Penn finally go full-blown shoot-first-question-later action placeholder. Obvious comparisons to Taken aside, the strong cast and tease of a trailer are enough to keep me interested until the movie hits theaters in the spring.

Watch the first trailer for The Gunman after the jump.

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

The upcoming Ron Howard film In the Heart of the Sea stars Chris Hemsworth and tackles the true-life tale of the Essex, a ship whose epic voyage would inspire Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick. The first trailer for the movie surfaced in mid-October (click the link above to give it a watch), and two haunting big-scale posters have recently started making the rounds.

That’s the horizontal banner poster up above, and you can see the vertical poster after the jump.
