From Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions and Director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) comes the visually spectacular action-adventure Pixels, debuting on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD on 7th December 2015 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games and it's up to Adam Sandler (Grown Ups 2), Kevin James (Paul Blart Mall Cop 2), Michelle Monaghan (Source Code), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Josh Gad (The Wedding Ringer) to save the world! Pixels also features Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) and Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars).
Fans can explore the various levels of Pixels with the extensive Blu-ray and DVD bonus materials, including the music video Game On by Waka Flocka Flame ft. Good Charlotte and two featurettes that take a look at the beloved games featured in the film. In Q*Bert, the adorable digital bit hopper comes to life, while Dojo Quest gives viewers a look at the new classic arcade game that gave life to the unstoppable Lady Lisa (Ashley Benson).
Pixels on Blu-ray includes even more exclusive, behind-the-scenes fun, with six additional featurettes, including looks at all the classic arcade game characters featured in the film and Creator of the Machine, which shows PAC-MAN creator Toru Iwatani on-set, talking about his experience and his take on Pixels.
Viewers can also game play alongside the Arcaders using the Pixels Blaster App, a second-screen experience that lets viewers battle their favourite arcade legends and test their gaming knowledge while they watch the film. The app syncs with the audio on the Blu-ray disc and the Digital version of the film.
When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth using games like PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede and Space Invaders as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler) to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
Based on the short film by Patrick Jean and screen story by Tim Herlihy with a screenplay by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling, Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus. The film is produced by Adam Sandler, Chris Columbus, Mark Radcliffe and Allen Covert; with Barry Bernardi, Michael Barnathan, Jack Giarraputo, Steve Koren, Heather Parry, Patrick Jean, Benjamin Darras, Johnny Alves, Matias Boucard, Seth Gordon and Ben Waisbren serving as executive producers.
