Sony Pictures today released the official trailer for its new movie, PIXELS, starring Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Space Invaders. Fans of classic arcade games are in for quite a surprise as these characters will descend from outer space not to entertain but rather to annihilate mankind.
As the story goes, extra-terrestrials pick up signals of the most popular games of the 1980s, including Space Invaders, and misinterpret this as a declaration of war and swiftly dispatch oversized Pac-Man and Donkey Kong figures to various megacities in the world, where they turn everything they touch into pixels.
Four men, portrayed by Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Denis Akiyama, and Josh Gad, will lead the charge against this pixelated threat. Fittingly, they will drive a quartet of MINI Cooper S 3 door models bearing the names and colours of the Pac-Man Ghosts.
PIXELS is scheduled to hit theatres on July 24th.
