Sony Pictures Malaysia has released a batch of new teaser posters for its upcoming movie, “Pixels”. The movie is Sony’s big screen adaptation of Patrick Jean’s outstanding games-vs-real-life animated short and it stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage (of “Game of Thrones” fame), Josh Gad, and Brian Cox.
“Pixels” centres on intergalactic aliens that misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them and as a result, they attack Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults.
President Will Cooper (played by Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, 80s video game champion Sam Brenner (played by Adam Sandler), now a home theatre installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (played by Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad respectively) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Michelle Monaghan plays the team’s unique weapons specialist.
The posters feature popular 80s gaming icons such as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Space Invaders wreaking their uniquely adorable forms of destruction upon the world. And we must say, they’re super cute! Check ’em out here:
The action-comedy is directed by Chris Columbus from a story by Tim Herlihy and a screenplay by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling.
