Sony Pictures Entertainment just dropped the first trailer for Adam Sandler’s Pixels on us. The film is inspired by classic video games, such as Donkey Kong, Frogger, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Centipede. The movie is inspired from a short movie with the same name Pixels by Patrick Jean. I’m also sure they stole the idea from an episode of Futurama, where Fry has to save the Earth from his favorite video games. Overall I think the visuals look pretty awesome. I’m kind of weary of Adam Sandler and Kevin James movies, but this looks like alot of fun and I’m willing to give this one a shot. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
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. Michelle Monaghan plays the team’s unique weapons specialist.
Pixels hits theaters May 15, 2015.
