One of 2015’s most anticipated movies for us here at Movie Fanatic is Pixels.
The idea that some of the most popular classic video arcade games would invade earth and only classic video gamers could save the day is a unique story in a world of remakes, sequels and plots we’ve all seen before.
Just check out that Pixels video short that inspired the flick and admit this thing isn’t out of this world original.
Sony has released a series of five Pixels posters for each of the five games that alien forces deem our greatest threat and build to invade the earth.
See, as transmissions to and from space take a lot of time, aliens received messages from earth that arrived in the form of code from video games such as Pac-Man and Space Invaders. So, they design weapons of mass destruction in the form of those games and attack the earth.
With little option for success, the president of the United States (Kevin James) turns to a group of classic video game kings (Adam Sandler, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage) as our last hope to save the world.
Check out the five video game posters below in the slideshow, including ones for Donkey Kong and Centipede!
Pixels arrives in theaters July 24, 2015.
