Pixels held its panel yesterday during the big Sony presentation, but the cast and director Chris Columbus were unable to attend, due to the fact that they are in the middle of shooting some of the movie's most important scenes. Chris Columbus did send a video greeting, though, which has now been released for everyone to see. In it, he invites fans to come and win a walk-on role by getting a high score at the Electric Dreams Arcade, which is set up to play right now in San Diego. Take a look at what he had to say.

When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper has to call on his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner, now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
