First ‘Pixels’ Trailer: Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and More Video Games Attack
  |  @   |  

The first trailer has been released for Pixels, the upcoming action comedy starring Adam Sandler (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore) as a former video game champion tasked with leading a team of gamers to help save the world from an invasion of classic arcade games such as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Centipede, and Galaga.

You can read a synopsis and check out the first trailer for the movie, which actually looks like it could be fun believe it or not, below.

Starring alongside Sandler is Kevin James (Here Comes the Boom, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry), Michelle Monaghan (True Detective, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, The Station Agent), Josh Gad (Frozen, Wish I Was Here), Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars, Spring Breakers), and Brian Cox (Braveheart, Rise of the Planet of the Apes). The movie is directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), with the screenplay written by Tim Herlihy (The Wedding Singer, Saturday Night Live) and Timothy Dowling (Role Models, This Means War).


When 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 to defeat the aliens and save the planet.

The movie was born from the short film of the same name from French filmmaker Patrick Jean and Paris visual effects studio One More Productions.

Pixels will be released in theaters on May 15th, and you can read more about it right here. You can also follow the movie at its Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
