Classic Video Games Invade Earth In New Posters For Pixels Starring Peter Dinklage, Adam Sandler
When you think of terrifying invasions of Earth, Pacman and Donkey Kong probably aren't the first fictional beings on your mind, until now because these new posters for sci-fi movie, Pixels, are both terrifying and nostalgic. Starring Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage and Michelle Monaghan, Pixels will pit Earth's mightiest retro gamers against an invasion led by an alien civilization who misinterpreted our classic video games as a declaration of war. Dinklage, Sandler and Josh Gad play the Earth's unlikely heroes, as they look to utilize years of gameplay experience to defeat the 8-bit menace.
Pixels was inspired by a short film created by Patrick Jean back in 2010, and you can watch the original below:
Pixels Official Synopsis
"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."
Pixels is released on July 24th 2015.
