Sony has released the first Pixels image in the latest issue of EW.  The film will have a presence at San Diego Comic-Con next week, but while we wait for that “special video announcement” from director Chris Columbus that Sony Pictures Entertainment is teasing, how about checking out the very first still from the film?  Pixels will show what happens when aliens catch a glimpse of classic arcade games and misread them as a declaration of war.  When the ETs attack, President Will Cooper (Kevin James) recruits his childhood best friend and former ‘80s video game champion, Jules Brenner (Adam Sandler), to pull together a team of the best arcaders and save the world. This film’s premise is so ridiculous that it has to be amazing. Plus, just look at Peter Dinklage’s hair.

The feature was inspired by a short film of the same name that hit the web back in 2010 depicting what might happen if New York City was attacked by some very familiar 8-bit characters.  Pixels will arrive in theaters on May 15, 2015 and also stars Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad and Brian Cox.

If you’re in San Diego for Comic-Con next week, you can get more on Pixels at the Sony Pictures Entertainment panel at 12:30pm in the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront.  According to the event description, someone in the audience might win a chance to actually be in the film.
