A playful mix of comedy and action, with a hint of nostalgia, Pixels is one of those laugh-out-loud summer movies you've been waiting for since childhood. The all-star cast, led by comedian Adam Sandler (Grown Ups 2, Hotel Transylvania) and including Kevin James (Grown Ups 2, Hotel Transylvania), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, X-Men: Days of Future Past), Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones), Josh Gad (Love & Other Drugs, The Wedding Ringer) and Michelle Monaghan (Due Date, Gone Baby Gone), play the eclectic characters that make up the unlikely crew set to save the world from alien invasion. Still recovering from his glory days, defeated arcade champion, Sam Brenner (Sandler) exists in a slump that's perpetuated well into his adult years. A chance to renew his passion and purpose arises with this interplanetary conflict but does he still have the skills to battle the iconic arcade characters in real life form?
When intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they respond with brutal force. Giant versions of the colourful characters we all know from our pre-adolescent days, descend down to earth and ensue mayhem. Donkey Kong and PAC-MAN are among those brought to life for this vigilant attack, challenging the citizens of earth to a winner takes all, video game style tournament and the safety of the world as we know it, is the grand prize.
President Will Cooper (James) enlists his childhood best-friend Brenner to lead the group of avid -gamers', with an old rival, Eddie Plant (Dinklage) and a new ally Violet (Monaghan) in tow. The obscure gang is called upon for their unique and previously unused skills to fight until they win, or run out of lives, ultimately leading the world and all its population to doom.
From the writers that brought us comedic classics Just Go With It, Big Daddy and Happy Gilmore comes this fabulously hilarious and action-packed film, that's sure to appeal to the whole family. Dive into the world of arcade gaming and join this wayward team in an alien invasion like no other! Pixels is available to own on 3D Blu-ray™, Blu-ray™, DVD & Digital with UltraViolet™ from December 10, 2015.
