Pixels Teaser

Sony Pictures released a teaser for Pixels which shows us that Pac-Man is one mean chompy-chomp son of a b*tch. The upcoming adventure film puts the fate of the world in the hands of arcade champions after aliens misinterpret our classic video games as a declaration of war. In the trailer you’ll notice Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Centipede, and Space Invaders wreak havoc through busy city streets.

Pixels was inspired by a short film of the same name released in 2010 depicting what might happen if New York City was attacked by 8-bit characters. The feature did have a presence at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but it wasn’t until December when shared three awesome character posters that really got me excited for this film.

Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus and stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, and Josh Gad. Watch these retro video game characters come to life when Pixels hits theaters in 3D on July 24, 2015.

Official Synopsis

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.
