New PIXELS Trailer Features More Footage

80s Arcade Comedy-Action Film

Hey, it’s trailer day today. Nevermind, after the first Pixels trailer, we got to see the second one for ’80s arcade comedy-action film, which stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and Brian Cox.

Directed by Chris Columbus and written by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling, the film based on the original short film of the same name by Patrick Jean is due in theaters on July 24th. Watch below.

I think this looks like fun, but when that Pacman scene comes on during the movie, it ain’t going to be as funny.

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 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.
