Pixels – First Official Trailer

The first full trailer for Pixels hit the web yesterday and, needless to say, we are hyped (well, we just went ahead and said it anyway, didn’t we).  8-Bit meets the big screen for the best video-game based movie trailer we’ve seen since Wreck-It Ralph.  Throw in Peter Dinklage and you’ve got yourself a must watch…. or do you?  Let us know what you think about this one in the comments below.


Release Date: July 24, 2015

Directed By: Chris Columbus

Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan …

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 (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.
