First Look: Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Peter Dinklage Battle Aliens in 'Pixels'
By Rosalyn Oshmyansky
ET takes a look at the highly-anticipated summer film about aliens, Pixels!
In the movie, aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games like Pac Man as a declaration of war so they attack Earth. Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan make this one star-studded experience.
The story's characters include President Will Cooper (James) as he gets his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler) to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Dinklage and Gad) to save the planet and beat the games that are coming to life.
"It's just a barrel how bad could it hurt?" President Cooper asks as Donkey Kong looks enraged.
In another scene, the president has a serious question, "When we were kids, did you ever think we'd be in an actual spaceship shooting laser guns while trying to save the world?" The response comes from Sandler’s character in a funny moment, "I did."
