Hollywood Film, Pixels, Now In Cinema
Produced by Columbia Pictures and distributed in Nigeria by Silverbird Film Distribution Ltd., the movie will be available at Silverbird Cinemas, Film House Cinemas, Viva Cinemas, Ozone Cinemas, Genesis Deluxe Cinemas, and Kada Cinemas.
Based on French director, Patrick Jean’s 2010 Internet short film of the same name, Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus from a screenplay written by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling and a screen story penned by Tim Herlihy.
As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie ‘The Fire Blaster’ Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times — at 25 cents a game in the video arcades.
Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now — U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
Scheduled for release in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D, Pixels, featuring computer-animated video game characters and special effects, parades top Hollywood stars like Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox, Ashley Benson, Jane Krakowski, Peter Dinklage, and Josh Gad among others.
