Stars Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, Denis Akayama and director Chris Columbus take fans behind-the-scenes of Pixels in our exclusive preview for the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD arriving today from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. These cast members and the director show us how they managed to "pixelate" cars, with Chris Columbus revealing that this particular scene in New York City was one of the most "satisfying scenes" he's ever done in his storied career. We also hear from Josh Gad, who jokes about being Chris Hemsworth's "fat body double" on Rush, and Adam Sandler who reveals how much fun they're having on the set, with Pac-Man chasing him.
From Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions and Director Chris Columbus comes the visually spectacular action-adventure Pixels, debuting on Digital HD Oct. 6, and on Two-Disc Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray and DVD October 27 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games and it's up to Adam Sandler (Grown Ups 2), Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), Michelle Monaghan (Source Code), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Josh Gad (The Wedding Ringer) to save the world! Pixels also features Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) and Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars).
Fans can explore the various levels of Pixels with the extensive Blu-ray and DVD bonus materials, including the music video "Game On" by Waka Flocka Flame ft. Good Charlotte and two featurettes that take a look at the beloved games featured in the film. In "Q*Bert," the adorable digital bit hopper comes to life, while "Dojo Quest" gives viewers a look at the new classic arcade game that gave life to the unstoppable Lady Lisa (Ashley Benson). Pixels on Blu-ray includes even more exclusive, behind-the-scenes fun, with six additional featurettes, including looks at all the classic arcade game characters featured in the film and "Creator of the Machine," which shows Pac-Man creator Toru Iwatani on-set, talking about his experience and his take on Pixels.
Viewers can also game play alongside the Arcaders using the "Pixels Play Along Game App," a second-screen experience that lets viewers battle their favorite arcade legends and test their gaming knowledge while they watch the film. The app syncs with the audio on the Blu-ray disc and the Digital version of the film. The Pixels Blu-ray is also exclusively presented with new Dolby Atmos audio, remixed specifically for the home theater environment, which delivers captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.
