The short film, Pixels was great, but I’m really not sure it will translate to movie magic, even with Adam Sandler and Peter Dinklage leading the cast. Still, the movie is on it’s way and the first posters hit the net today with a throwback nod to classic games: Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Centipede.
Pixels also stars Kevin James and is set for a July 24, 2015 release.
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 (James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Dinklage and Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
