Adam Sandler

Streaming movie and TV series service Netflix appears to be ready for a fight with movie theaters. They already have multiple hit original series, but recently their first original movie—a sequel to Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon—was announced with plans to debut the movie on Netflix with some IMAX-only screenings in theaters. The theaters did not appreciate this, with multiple big theater companies such as AMC, Regal, and Cinemark stating that they would not run the movie on their screens.

Instead of trying to work around this, Netflix has instead made their next move known. The company has signed Adam Sandler to an exclusive four-movie deal. What four movies these will be is not yet known, but Sandler will develop them through his Happy Madison Productions.

Pixels By Patrick Jean

The first official image from the upcoming movie Pixels has been released, featuring stars Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, and Michelle Monaghan.

The movie is based on the hit short film of the same name, which sees classic arcade games invading a city. In the movie, aliens mistake a satellite feed of these classic arcade games as a declaration of war, and invade our planet using mimicry of the games and their strategies. This leads the U.S. president (played by Kevin James) to turn to three of his childhood friends, former arcade game prodigies who haven’t amounted to anything in their adults years, one being a TV mechanic (Sandler), one being a felon (Dinklage), and one being a conspiracy theorist (Gad). Monaghan plays a weapons expert who helps the trio. Basically, that episode of Futurama.

You can check out the first image from Pixels below.

Adam Sandler To Star In Classic Arcade Games Movie ‘Pixels’; Kevin James, Josh Gad In Talks

Pixels By Patrick Jean

Back in 2010 a very cool little animated short by French filmmaker Patrick Jean titled Pixels took the ‘net by storm. In it, a variety of classic arcade games invade New York City.

Not long after that came word that Adam Sandler‘s Happy Madison had acquired the rights to develop a feature-length adaptation of the short, and that Tim Herlihy would be writing the screenplay.

Now comes word that Sandler himself will star in the movie, and it looks like he’ll be joined by at least one old friend as Grown Ups co-star Kevin James and Josh Gad (Frozen) have entered into negotiations to star as well.

Disney Offering Jim Carrey & Adam Sandler Roles In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Guardians of the Galaxy Image

Considering just how crazy having a large tree or a raccoon on a team of heroes or space outlaws is, I am not surprised at who Disney may be considering to cast for Guardians of the Galaxy. According to Latino Review, the studio is reportedly courting comedians Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler for roles in the James Gunn-directed film. No word yet on who they would be playing, but based on the original report it wouldn’t be Star Lord. According to LR, the two could be playing/voicing Groot – the large humanoid tree – and/or Rocket Raccoon – a character with an affinity for large high-powered weapons.

No word yet on if the offer is for both roles or just one role in particular, but in any case I can guess which actor most fans could feel disgruntled about if he was cast. So for now, let’s take everything with a grain of salt. Nothing has been confirmed, and all that we know is that Disney has an offer on the table.

Bad Toys II

That headline means exactly what your brain most likely first thought it meant.

Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions are currently developing a movie based on the French animated/live-action/comic book panel hybrid short from Daniel Brunet and Nicolas Douste, titled Bad Toys II, for Columbia Pictures.

The short is basically a man playing with his old toys, but presented in the style of a Michael Bay movie (just as most of us imagined it as kids), drawing much inspiration from the highway car chase in Bays Bad Boys II.

Hotel Transylvania

No matter how critically panned Adam Sandler’s work is, he will always have his fan base supporting him. So don’t be surprised to see his fans fill the theaters for Hotel Transylvania, the animated family comedy set in a hotel that specifically caters to monsters, beasts, creatures, and other beings that go bump in the night.

Directed by Genndy Taratkovsky (Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory) the film reunites Sandler with his That’s My Boy co-star Andy Samburg. You can check out the new trailer below.

Adam Sandler Teaming Up With Will Ferrell For The Football Comedy ‘Three Mississippi’

Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell

You’ve got to hand it Adam Sandler: the guy gets exorbitant salaries to make crappy comedies with his entourage of unfunny and untalented goons who think the words “pee-pee” and “poo-poo” are the height of hilarity, and every bit of pathetic schlock that goes out into theaters with Sandler’s name above the title often makes beaucoup bucks at the box office. The guy started out making comedies that were genuinely funny though extremely juvenile at first, but somewhere along the way he found out that it was easier to sell out and stick to a surefire formula for making movies that generate fast and plentiful profits in theaters and on video and cable.

The old Sandler – the guy who only cares about making people laugh and not just about satisfying his taste-deprived fan base – occasionally shows up for a fleeting moment, like the wonderful first two acts of Judd Apatow’s bloated Funny People, but then he disappears just as fast into another awful movie where he plays an overgrown manchild who loves to vomit, defecate on someone’s front lawn, and engage in acts of pointlessly absurd brutality that would only be truly hilarious to the lobotomized.

The movie tells the story of an unmotivated high school gym teacher who has to cancel all of his summer plans when the vice principal decides to have him take on a class of outcasts and slackers as the new summer school teacher.
