Unless it’s a drama (of which he has two on the horizon), it’s hard to get excited about an Adam Sandler movie these days. That said, this might change with Sony’s upcoming action comedy Pixels. Directed by Chris Columbus and based on the short film of the same name, the story revolves around a few 80s arcade game champions who are called upon to help defend earth from alien invaders who have misinterpreted our classic arcade games as a declaration of war. Sandler stars alongside Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox, and Kevin James as the President of the United States (I know), but today Sony has unveiled the official Pixels logo and revealed which recognizable video game characters will be popping up in the film. It’s a hodge-podge of great game icons, from Pac-Man to Donkey Kong to Q*bert, and I’m really curious to see how they’ll be realized in the large-scale action-adventure film.
Hit the jump to check out the official Pixels logo, a high-resolution version of the previously released image, and the full press release and synopsis from Sony. Pixels opens in theaters on May 15, 2015.
