Back in the eighties, NASA sent a time capsule up into space to connect with possible life forces on other planets. But when neighbouring aliens discover a feed of classic arcade games such as Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede and Space Invaders, they interpret it is a threat of war. Fearing for the safety of their planet, they send pixelated monsters in the shape of beloved video game characters to Earth to destroy mankind, and the only people who can stop it are record-breaking gamers Sam Brenner, Will Cooper, Ludlow Lamonsoff and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant. Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten is also on the team, providing a set of creative weapons to defeat the characters. But can this group of gaming experts really stop Pac Man eating up the city?

'Pixels' is a forthcoming action comedy which takes eighties gaming to a whole new level. Directed by the Oscar nominated Chris Columbus ('Home Alone', 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'), the movie's screenplay has been taken on by Timothy Dowling ('Role Models'), Tim Herlihy ('Happy Gilmore'), Patrick Jean and Adam Sandler, the latter of whom also stars in the flick. It is scheduled for UK release on August 12th 2015.
