The new trailer tells the story of classic video game characters invading earth and destroying it (No relation to The Avengers). Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage, and Josh Gad are the group of gamers who are sworn to protect earth from this gaming event.
New trailer includes some new footage and a lot of fun, including a clip of James’ character killing a Smurf, but it also sheds some more light on the story and where it will take our heroes.
As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Sandler), Will Cooper (James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
Pixels will invade theaters on July 24th.
