Pixels Film Trailer
The first trailer has arrived for Adam Sandler’s new action-comedy Pixels, which sees the human race facing extinction due to an invasion of mega-sized 80s video game characters. Sounds bonkers? It looks brilliant!
Evolving from Patrick Jean’s inventive short, Pixels looks like it’s going to be big and unapologetic Roland Emmerich-style alien invasion thriller stitched together with a classic Sandler comedy backdrop.
The story sees US President Will Cooper, played by Kevin James, tracking down his old friend and 80s video-game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler) so he can put together a team of old-school arcade masters (including Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage) to defeat über Pac-Man, gigantic Donkey Kong (barrels and all), and other gaming baddies.
Pixels will be directed by Chris Columbus and is scripted by Sandler plus Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling. Co-starring Pixels Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox and Sean Bean, who will almost certainly going to die in it at some point, Pixels will arrive in the UK on 12th August. Looks like a perfect summer blockbuster to us! Check the trailer out below.
