'Pixels' Posits Gamers Will Save the World (VIDEO)
Remember when time capsules were all the rage? The '80s were weird! In "Pixels," some geniuses decided to drop their favorite arcade games into a time capsule that was launched into space. Unfortunately, the aliens that encountered the capsule misinterpreted things and assumed this was just the beginning of an intergalactic war. So, they turned Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and other beloved characters into giant weapons that attack and pixelate whatever comes across their path.
Who're you gonna call? Well, if you're the President, you give your old crew from the arcade a call to help fight the baddies. Kevin James plays the prez, and Adam Sandler co-stars as his best friend and ace gamer. They recruit their old arcade enemies, played by Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage, and enlist a weapons expert played by Michelle Monaghan to help them save the world from Pac-Man's bottomless hunger.
"Pixels" chomps into theaters July 24, 2015.
