Before you bemoan the movie based on the first two words in the title of this article, know that Pixels might actually be good. Yes, it’s a Happy Madison comedy with many of the usual players like Kevin James and Sandler himself, but it does have things going for it. The cast is rounded out by talent such as Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Brian Cox and Sean Bean, the director is Chris Columbus who has great films under his belt like Home Alone, The Goonies and Gremlins and the first trailer is actually pretty darn good.
Released today, the Pixels trailer gives a glimpse at the overall plot and many of the action pieces. The plot is absolutely bonkers, featuring an alien invasion of pixelated video game characters. The implementation of said characters combined with the insanity of the plot and some of the humorous jokes could make for quite the entertaining watch indeed.
