Pac-Man Is Not Friendly In The First Trailer for Pixels

Very much like a video-game version of the 2001 movie "Evolution", the upcoming sci-fi comedy movie Pixels has aliens attack Earth and meanwhile somehow assume the likings of various video game icons of our day and age.
From Pac Man over the Space Invaders, these aliens might look cute but quickly start to tear Earth apart into blocky squares. The only one's somehow able to stop them come in the form of Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan and Peter Dinklage.
The first trailer for Pixels that got released today gives a nice introduction into the movie's premise. Surely enough, it all comes off very ridiculous and silly but kind of fits the bill for such a sci-fi comedy.
Still, Pixels seems like a mixed bag. While it's directed by talented Chris Columbus, it nevertheless stars recent box office poison Adam Sandler and Kevin James. A not very promising mix as of now.

We will find out if this invasion is worth watching when Pixels hits theaters on July 24, 2015.
