Jumping firmly on the nostalgia bandwagon Sony Pictures are finally giving us a good look at their new Earth Vs. Video Games movie, Pixels.
Site favourite Chris Columbus is directing the live action/CG animation crossbreed with Adam Sandler as a video game champion whose childhood best friend (Kevin James) has moved onto better things (namely being President).
The premise has the Prez and his old gaming buddies taking on an alien invasion spurred on by a misunderstanding of the video game craze in the 1980s. Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Michelle Monaghan and Jane Krakowski line up for support. Sounds nuts.
Today Sony are unveiling a series of character banners and we have the world exclusive on this little critter… say hello to Centipede.
UPDATE – here are all of the banners…
In Pixels, 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 (James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Dinklage and Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet
You have until the 14th of August 2015 to practise.
