Okay. I cannot tell a lie. I am nervous about Adam Sandlers’ involvement to successfully make Pixels the film we want it to be. I will though give him the benefit of the doubt until I can see a trailer, it is after all directed by Chris Columbus. I can say however that I MUST get my hands on these teaser posters for the film no matter what and it will bring a smile to my face as I walk into my local movie theater and see Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Centipede, Galaga and Space Invaders in those poster frames!
The feature length film is inspired by the short film Pixels from Patrick Jean that went viral back in 2010.
In this new movie Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Peter Dinklage once former 1980’s Video Game Champions are called on by the President of the United States to defend the World against an invading army of aliens…who have watched feeds of old arcade games and mistaken them for an act of aggression, so the aliens take on the forms of some of our most beloved arcade icons to wreck havoc on the Earth.
