We’ve seen many times now what a zombie invasion on Earth would look like. In fact there are people out there who would consider it a dream if a zombie invasion were to actually take place, but for the first time that I can remember we’re gonna get to see what would happen if video game characters took over the world with the movie Pixels.
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. (Collider)
The film is based off an awrd winning 2010 French animated short film Pixels written and directed by Patrick Jean. For a film that features popular 80’s video game icons and characters, I like this cast especially Peter Dinklage who’s character is rumored to be an ex con man rocking a mullet.
Seeing stuff like Pac-Man swallow San Francisco and Centipede over London in these posters makes me believe this film could actually be pretty good. Let us know what you think of these posters!
Pixels opens in theaters on July 24, 2015.
