Watch: First Trailer for Adam Sandler’s ‘Pixels’

17 March 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for Adam Sandler’s sci-fi comedy “Pixels,” four months ahead of its July 24 release.

Sandler plays a former arcade gaming champ tasked in the slapstick-laden trailer with saving Earth from an invasion of aliens portrayed as giant versions of classic videogame characters, such as Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. The story centers on the aliens misinterpreting video feeds in space exploration as a declaration of war against them.

“It was taken to be a message of peace,” the trailer notes. “Unfortunately it was taken the wrong way.”

The film also stars Kevin James as the President of the United States along with Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and Michelle Monaghan. Chris Columbus directed from a script by Tim Dowling and Tim Herlihy, based on the short film by Patrick Jean.

Sandler and Columbus also produced with Mark Radcliffe and Allen Covert.

'Happy Gilmore' Reunion Video: Adam Sandler & Bob Barker Fight Again!

5 March 2015 8:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Adam Sandler's second movie after leaving Saturday Night Live was Happy Gilmore, which has grown a huge cult following over the years and helped launch the comedian as one of today's biggest box office stars. It is probably best remembered for an epic fight on the golf course between Adam Sandler and legendary game show host Bob Barker, which infamously ended with The Price Is Right headmaster declaring, "Now you've had enough...Bitch!" Well, that old grudge match is back on in a new video for the upcoming charity event Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs, which airs on Comedy Central this Sunday, March 8.

Jon Stewart will host Night of Too Many Stars, which will raise money with Nyca (New York Collaborates for Autism) to support programs covering everything from the intensive education kids with autism needs at a young age to social training »
