Sony has released the first Pixels image.  The film will have a presence at San Diego Comic-Con next week, but while we wait for that “special video announcement” from director Chris Columbus that Sony Pictures Entertainment is teasing, how about checking out the very first still from the film?  Pixels will show what happens when aliens catch a glimpse of classic arcade games and misread them as a declaration of war.  When the ETs 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.

The feature was inspired by a short film of the same name that hit the web back in 2010 depicting what might happen if New York City was attacked by some very familiar 8-bit characters.  Hit the jump to check out the Pixels image as well as the original short film.  Pixels will arrive in theaters on May 15, 2015 and also stars Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad and Brian Cox.
