Sony Pictures has released a new TV spot for director Chris Columbus’ upcoming action-comedy Pixels. The film stars Adam Sandler and revolves around a group of 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. This TV spot offers up a tiny bit of new footage, including a look at the movie’s iteration of Paperboy. But for the most part it hinges on the same clips we’ve been seeing for the past few months now, including that Pac-Man scene that’s starting to get pretty old. But maybe it’s a good thing that Sony hasn’t showed off too much from the film just yet—though the most recent trailer did seem to reveal the movie’s big third act set piece.
Check out the new TV spot below, via Sony Pictures. The film also stars Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage, and Brian Cox. Pixels opens in theaters on July 24th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Pixels:
When intergalactic 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 (James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Dinklage and Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
