Peter Dinklage welcomes you to the Electric Dreams Factory, suckers
It’s been an exciting week for Chris Columbus’ upcoming sci-fi comedy PIXELS and it’s not slowing down thanks to a new viral video out of Comic-Con. The special behind-the-scenes video features co-star Peter Dinklage in character as he welcomes viewers to the “Electric Dreams Factory”.
First, here’s the official synopsis for PIXELS:
When 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 has to call on his childhood best friend, ‘80s video game champion Sam Brenner, now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
A few days ago Alex shared with you a list of game companies and titles that will be in PIXELS including:
- Atari® Interactive: (Asteroids®, Breakout®, Centipede® and Missile Command®)
- Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. (Frogger)
- BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. (PAC-MAN, Galaga, and Dig Dug)
- Nintendo (Donkey Kong)
- Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. (Q*bert)
- Taito Corporation (Space Invaders)
- Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (Joust, Defender, Robotron and Wizard of Wor)
I’m not really sure what to think of Adam Sandler's classic videogame-inspired movie at this point. The great thing though is that Peter Dinklage is in it and he’s got a mullet. So if that doesn’t put the butts in the seats I’m not sure what will.
