Pixels Trailer Crosses Retro Games With An Alien Disaster Movie

Here's the new trailer for Sony's new video game disaster film, Pixels. The movie, directed by Chris Columbus, stars Adam Sandler, Kevin JamesMichelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad.

The trailer certainly seems very Sandler-y and that is a pretty big negative to me. There is some real talent on board here though, who are capable of making a good movie. The idea of aliens misinterpreting video games as a sign of war is also good one, so there is at least potential.

For me, it will likely come down to how much Sandler puts himself into the movie. I see he didn't write the script, so maybe he kept out of most of the major creative decisions. As I said I'm hopeful, but the little bits that were in this trailer are a little worrying.

Check it out here.


If for nothing else though, It is pretty cool seeing Toru Iwatani in there having fun. Shigeru Myamoto cameo next please?

Pixels is out this summer.
