This Is Why You Need To See Adam Sandler’s Pixels Movie This Weekend [WIN]

Adam Sandler stars in Pixels – where Pac-Man appears to have invaded planet Earth, and here’s why you should take notice.

It’s hard not to be lured to Adam Sandler’s movies. His endearing and everyday-guy approach has garnered him many fans in SA, but this time he’s taking on something vastly different from the familiar rom-com scenario, and it’s hitting South African cinemas this weekend.

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 pretty amazing.

There’s a cool 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.

Sandler plays a videogame expert who leads the fightback. And from the trailer, this one looks to be a huge jolt of gaming nostalgia and comedy rolled into in one.

Here’s the full synopsis:

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 Patte, a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
