The first trailer for Sony Pictures Sci-fi action comedy Pixels has been released. The movie is directed by Chris Columbus and stars Adam Sandler, Jane Krakowski, Peter Dinklage and Michelle Monaghan.
In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
This movie answers why we spend so much time playing video games – to one day save the world using those skills! Let’s be honest, this movie is not going to be an ‘epic’ blockbuster but it does look like a lot of fun. The laughs and nostalgia will make it entertaining, The effects and animation look great and who wouldn’t want to see those old school arcade games come to life?!
