Classic video games like Donkey Kong and Pac-Man are attacking Earth and it’s up to a group of video game experts to stop them in Adam Sandler’s latest flick Pixels.
The upcoming comedy explores what would happen if aliens decided to attack our world using technology based on old (but classic!) video games. The answer? All hell would break loose in the form of cool graphics and destruction.
In addition to Sandler, the film stars Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Ashley Benson and Brian Cox. You can watch the latest trailer for the film, and read more about it per Sony, below:
As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
