I have to be honest; I did not see Pixels. I saw the preview and thought it looked like a great idea and a lot of fun, but then I remembered one thing. Adam Sandler hasn’t been in a live-action comedy I actually enjoyed since Bedtime Stories in 2008 almost a decade ago… and seriously, if I didn’t have small kids, I probably would’ve skipped that one too. Adam Sandler has gone from one of Hollywood’s can’t miss comedic actors, to being relegated to direct to Netflix “comedies” like The Ridiculous Six and most recently The Do-Over. He’s an easy target for sarcasm and ridicule, and thus we get an Honest Trailer for his 2015 critical flop Pixels by the gang at Screen Junkies.
A new trailer has been released for Pixels, the upcoming movie about an alien race that uses our own classic arcade video games to attack Earth. You can check out the first trailer right here if you missed it.
The movie is directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), and stars Adam Sandler (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore), 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), who’s basically playing Billy Mitchell from King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, 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).
You can check out the trailer, which includes James offing a Smurf, below.
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.
