Sony and Columbia Pictures now releases the very first trailer for the scifi comedy offering Pixels. Enjoy as you watch Adam Sandler, Michelle Monaghan, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage and the rest of the crew battle "Alien Invaders" straight from your childhood. Watch the trailer after the jump.
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. Monaghan plays the team's unique weapons specialist.
The action-comedy is directed by Chris Columbus from a story by Tim Herlihy and a screenplay by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling, based on the original short film of the same name by Patrick Jean. The film is produced by Adam Sandler, Chris Columbus, Mark Radcliffe, and Allen Covert.
This movie is based on a short film created by a French Animator/Director back in 2010 and back then the short already have this dark nature. Behind all those colorful pixels, most of the people already think that the movie will become some kind of a virus infestation rather than an exact Alien Invasion. Not sure how Sony's writers will pull out this Alien plot thingy but I'm concerned that now it is becoming a comedy. And I'm more worried because it is an Adam Sandler brand of comedy. I hope everything works well together. Let us all cross our fingers.
Coming in cinemas in August 2015 from Sony Pictures to be distributed by Columbia Pictures.
