It’s understandable to approach Adam Sandler’s films with a hint of hesitation (his more recent entries haven’t been the best), but this time he’s taking on something vastly different from the familiar rom-com scenario.
Sandler is leading a star-packed cast in Pixels, the new movie from Home Alone and Mrs Doubtfire director Chris Columbus. And it’s looking quite promising.
There’s a nice idea behind this one too. It tells of aliens, who pick up feeds of classic videogames. Unfortunately, when they see the likes of Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, said aliens get the wrong idea, and take that as a declaration of war on planet Earth.
Here, then, Sandler plays a videogame expert who leads the fightback. And from the first trailer that’s just been released, this one looks really rather interesting.
