Pixels – Official Trailer #2 – Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage Movie HD

pixelsPixels has the daft premise that when messages of peace, including video feeds of classic arcade games, are misinterpreted by intergalactic aliens as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults.

And now, a second trailer has been released…

President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.

Downsides: Adam Sandler and Kevin James are in this (and their EIGHTH collaboration, would you believe!!)

Upsides: It’s Pacman! And other videogame characters!

Directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter 1 & 2) and also starring Jane Krakowski, Ashley Benson, Sean Bean, Brian Cox and Jared Sandler, the videogames link with this had me wanting to see it from the start, despite a lot of the casting.

Pixels is released in the UK on August 12th.
