Arcade And Video Games Come To Life To Destroy Earth In 'Pixels' Trailer

by Adam Pliskin

If you ever wanted to see a movie about classic video games annihilating mankind, you're in luck. We have the first trailer for "Pixels" for you.

The film stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad as they fight against aliens attempting to destroy Earth with classic arcade game characters.

The aliens built monstrous versions of Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Frogger in their quest for world domination.

If this all sounds somewhat convoluted, that's because it is. The trailer is only two and a half minutes long, and yet it's packed with exposition.

But, you don't go to see a movie starring Adam Sandler and a life-sized version of a barrel-throwing monkey for its straightforward plot. You see it because sh*t blows up and Pac-Man decimates an entire city.

To get a little taste of that destruction, watch the trailer above.
