Fresh off that Pixels trailer that premiered yesterday, Sony has released the first clip from the highly anticipated summer film.
It also just happens to be extremely timely! It’s Pac-Man’s 35th anniversary!
Pixels follows what happens if aliens misinterpreted a signal we sent out during the '80s that introduced us to the universe with a series of images and videos, including some shots of our favorite video games at the time including Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Centipede.
The aliens see those games as a threat and decide to mold their invasion after those games. And sure enough, in 2015 we get invaded… by our favorite classic games, including Pac-Man.
In the below clip, the inventor of Pac-Man, Professor Iwatani, feels that he can reason with his creation and tries to do just that. Wonder how that is going to go?
Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad star as '80s video game experts who are our last hope at winning the war against our alien invaders. Look for Pixels in theaters July 24.
