A new promo for Pixels was released today at Comic-Con: International San Diego. In the promo, Peter Dinklage explains how fans at Comic-Con can win a chance to be in the Pixels movie.

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.
