Aliens are attacking Earth with help from our own classic video games, like Donkey Kong, Frogger, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Centipede. Who can save us? The greatest arcade video game players of all-time.
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 (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage & Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Michelle Monaghan plays the team's unique weapons specialist.

Pixels will arrive in theaters May 15, 2015.
