Your First Look At Adam Sandler And Company In PIXELS
So EW has your first look at Adam Sandler and the rest of the 'Arcaders' in Christopher Columbus' adaptation of the short film Pixels. Left to right you have the lovely Michelle Monoghan, Sandler, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage sporting a wicked mullet.
According to the report the three were video game prodigies back in the early 80s. But times are tough and Sandler is now a TV repairman, Gad a conspiracy theorist and Dinklage a felon. When aliens misinterpret satellite feeds of classic video games as a declaration of war their childhood friend, the President of the United States, played by... ... Kevin James, recruits them to save the country.Shown above in their suits for the first time, the so-called Arcaders are on their way to take down Pac-Man. "They're actually becoming sort of cultural heroes at this point. It's a very important shot in the film," says Columbus.
So. There you have it. There is more information over at EW. It is difficult to get excited about just an image. Columbus says in the article that Pixels pays homage to 80s flicks like Ghostbusters and the Amblin lineup. Though Sandler has been hit and miss the last little while. But Extra Lives for Monoghan and for Dinklage in a mullet!
