Pixels is actually a real-life film about what happens when aliens invade Earth as video game characters because they think Pac-Man is a declaration of war. And the only one who can save us is Adam Sandler and his video game champion friends.
Observe the latest trailer.
There's a bit of new footage here, showing us an example of how Sandler actually helps the military take on these enemies. There's also more Peter Dinklage (which is never a bad thing) and some familiar jokes.
Are these games too old for the target audience to care? That's going to depend on how director Chris Colombus (Home Alone) handles their integration into the film and just what kind of irritating mode Sandler happens to be in. If he's pretty normal and doesn't rely on Kevin James to do much, leaving things in the capable hands of Dinklage and Josh Gad, this could be a bit of fun
Or a total disaster.
Time will tell.
Pixels opens in August 2015.
