As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie â€œThe Fire Blasterâ€ Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times â€“ at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, theyâ€™re going to have to do it for real.Â InÂ 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 mustÂ call on his old-school arcade friends to saveÂ the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders.Â Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
