In 1982, NASA shot a time capsule into outer space in hopes of making peaceful contact. Unfortunately, the recipients of the capsule interpreted it as a declaration of war. The aliens attack the Earth using some of the images that were in the time capsule, which just happened to be classic video game characters.

Starring Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, and Kevin James (the President of the United States) as the team of retrogamers that try to eliminate the alien threat of a giant city-eating Pac-Man, actual Space Invaders, and a barrel-throwing Donkey Kong. The movie features plenty of classic licensed characters and is made by Sandler’s Happy Madison production company.

Pixels pushes the start button on July 24, 2015.
