Following yesterday's sneak peek that gave us more insight into Ashley Benson's Lady Lisa, Sony Pictures has released a new preview for Pixels, arriving in theaters July 24. Pixels stars Peter Dinklage, Kevin James, Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan describe what it was like working with their favorite 80s video game characters who are brought to life. We also hear from crew members such as property master Timothy Wiles, who explained that the plush version of Q-Bert was a big hit on set.
Director Chris Columbus teases that the end of Pixels presents a world that includes practically every 1980s video game character ever, while others explain that the production tried to stay true to the essence of these games, as we see a scene where Adam Sandler's character explains that you have to shoot each Centipede in the head. As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times - at 25 cents a game in the video game arcades. Now, they're going to have to do it for real.
In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults -- and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens. Check out the latest preview for Pixels below.
