A first picture of Pixels, the upcoming adventure comedy movie directed by Chris Columbus and starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Brian Cox, and Ashley Benson:
“When 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 (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 (Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.”
The plot synopsis sounds a bit dumb, but since Adam Sandler in involved it’s not surprising… But at least we know it’s going to be a funny movie!
The release date of Pixels is set to May 15, 2015.
