Oh buddy, if you’re excited for Chris Columbus’ upcoming sci-fi comedy Pixels, then this has been a banner week for you! The movie shows the outcome of aliens catching a glimpse of classic arcade games and misreading them as a declaration of war. In response to their attack, President Will Cooper (Kevin James) recruits his childhood best friend and former ‘80s video game champion, Jules Brenner (Adam Sandler), to pull together a team of the best arcaders and save the world. About a week ago, we saw the first image of those arcaders, the logo and a list of classic games that will be featured in the movie, and a movie poster from Comic-Con. Now, we have a special behind-the-scenes video that features co-star Peter Dinklage in character as he welcomes viewers to the Electric Dreams Factory.
Also starring Josh Gad, Brian Cox, and Michelle Monaghan, Pixels is slated for release on May 15, 2015. Hit the jump to watch the video.Check out Dinklage in character for Pixels in this behind-the-scenes video that also shows off a bit of B-roll from the set:
Here’s the official synopsis for Pixels:
When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper has to call on his childhood best friend, ‘80s video game champion Sam Brenner, now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
