What are we to make of ‘Pixels,’ the big budget feature adaptation of a cute short film that made the internet rounds a few years back? On one hand, it’s a cute premise. But it stars Adam Sandler. It’s the next film by Chris Columbus, who has made his fair share of amusing family adventures. But it stars Adam Sandler. It features the acting talents of the great Peter Dinklage and the often funny Josh Gad. But it stars Adam Sandler. However, these new posters for the film don’t feature Sandler’s name or face, so consider this a good start.

You can make all the “‘Hotel Transylvania’ sucked!” jokes you want (and then follow them with with all the “Get it? Sucked? Because vampires?” you want), but make no mistake: The movie was a big ol’ hit. The animated film about a hotel for famous monsters in a location I’ve yet to verify (but possibly Transylvania) earned almost $150 million in the United States and another $210 million worldwide back in 2012. That naturally inspired the upcoming sequel, ‘Hotel Transylvania 2,’ which will open in theaters next September, and once again features the voices of Adam Sandler (as Count Dracula), Adam Samberg (as Jonathan, a human), Selena Gomez (as Drac’s daughter Mavis), Kevin James (as Frank[enstein]), and Steve Buscemi (as Wayne the werewolf).

It was interesting that when Jason Reitman and I discussed the recent merits of Adam Sandler – who stars in Reitman’s new film, ‘Men, Women & Children’ – Reitman turned the tables back on himself, mentioning the box office failure of ‘Labor Day.’ And, surprisingly, openly talking about the failures of ‘Labor Day.’ Reitman’s point is that even if it looks like Sandler might not care about a movie like, say, ‘Jack & Jill,’ Sandler still desperately cares about that movie. Because, as Reitman points out, people picked on ‘Labor Day,’ but that doesn’t mean Reitman wasn’t trying to make his best movie. Sure, that didn’t happen, but you don’t know until it’s made.

We got a first look at Jason Reitman's latest effort before TIFF 2014 with a non-speaking 'Men, Women & Children' trailer, but since it screened at the film festival to mixed reviews, a new one has, appropriately, debuted online.

I am fascinated by Adam Sandler’s career. More specifically, I’m fascinated by Sandler when he decides to challenge himself with more “serious” roles, or at least work with directors that aren’t Dennis Dugan. Sandler has two movies at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The first is Jason Reitman’s ‘Men, Women and Children,’ in which Sandler gives what is the most understated performance of his career. The second is Thomas McCarthy’s ‘The Cobbler,’ which is bone-headedly awful.

The internet, coupled with other technological advances, changed our lives in ways many of us don't even consider, and director Jason Reitman is tackling these issues and struggles in his upcoming film, 'Men, Women and Children.' The first trailer, appropriately void of dialogue in favor of online and textual interactions, is a dark look at what's to befall his cast of characters -- and potentially the rest of us -- in the internet age.
