UPDATE #3: Pac-Man, Centipede & Space Invaders Posters For Sony's PIXELS

<font color=red>UPDATE #3: </font>Pac-Man, Centipede & Space Invaders Posters For Sony's PIXELS

Today, Sony is releasing a series of posters for their upcoming Adam Sandler film, Pixels. In the film, aliens attack Earth with classic video games, and this first poster features an attack from Atari's 1981 arcade game, Centipede.


Sony Pictures Entertainment has released new 'Donkey Kong,' 'Frogger,' 'Pac-Man,' 'Space Invaders,' and 'Centipede' posters for their upcoming movie, Pixels. The film is directed by Chris Columbus ("Harry Potter") and stars Adam Sandler ("Billy Madison") and Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones"). The premise is fairly simple: Aliens attack Earth by bringing classic video characters to life. They end up wrecking some stuff and that is when some expert gamers are brought in to help out. Just thank god their not hackers or that would be super-awkward.

I'm looking forward to this film's premiere as Sony has taken a lot of heat for leaked emails that reveal Sony employees hold a low opinion of Adam Sandler and the films he churns out for them. So, the real question is which viral infection will Adam Sandler choose to avoid doing press for Sony's Pixels? Not every actor can come down with a well-timed case of chickenpox, right Angelina?


Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today that the studio has brought together an extraordinary number of iconic video game companies, whose classic characters – including PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Centipede®, Galaga, Frogger, Q*bert, and Space Invaders – will be featured in the highly-anticipated action comedy Pixels, starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, and Brian Cox, and directed by Chris ColumbusThe film will be released on May 15, 2015.

In Pixels, when intergalactic 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 (James) has to call on his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Dinklage and Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.  Monaghan plays the team's unique weapons specialist.  The action-comedy is directed by Chris Columbus from a story by Tim Herlihy and a screenplay by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling, based on the original short film of the same name by Patrick Jean.  The film is produced by Adam Sandler, Chris Columbus, Mark Radcliffe, and Allen Covert.  Executive Producers are Barry Bernardi, Michael Barnathan, Jack Giarraputo, Heather Parry, Tim Herlihy, Steve Koren, Patrick Jean, Benjamin Darras, Johnny Alves, Matias Boucard, Seth Gordon, and Ben Waisbren.  The film, a Columbia Pictures presentation in association with LStar Capital, is a Happy Madison / 1492 Films production in association with One More Production.
