First look at Peter Dinklage & Adam Sandler from Chris Columbus' Pixels

07.18.2014

PIXELS is a unique Adam Sandler film, as in unlike other recent movies starring the actor, the premise doesn't make me want to bounce my head off of a wall. Based on Patrick Jean's short film of the same name, Chris Columbus' PIXELS will follow a group of old-school arcaders as they try to save the world from an 8-bit video game inspired alien invasion.

The latest issue of EW has a first look at Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad and Michelle Monaghan from PIXELS, and while there aren't any 8-bit characters featured in this first image, we do get a look at the sweet hairdo Peter Dinklage will be rocking for the upcoming film.

Take a look:

PIXELS has the potential to be a very fun film, but I understand why some aren't too optimistic about Chris Columbus new movie. Patrick Jean's short is awesome though, and if handled correctly, the feature film could wind up being just as entertaining as 2012's WRECK-IT-RALPH, another film featuring classic video game characters. Definitely interested in checking out the first trailer for PIXELS, although it'll probably be a while before one is released since principal photography on the film just started last month.

PIXELS also stars Brian Cox, Kevin James and Jane Krakowski, and will open on May 15, 2015.

I honestly don't know what to think. I've liked Chris Columbus since the 80's, but I've gotten over Adam Sandler. I'm also not sure how the premise will hold up. Typically any major theatrical release that tries to tackle video games and video game culture in the real world (i.e. not like Wreck It Ralph), does so in the stupidest, more shallow way possible, essentially making fun of gamers. I'll have to wait for a trailer before I decide how interested I am in this.

I'm cautiously optimistic

It's a decent cast with a decent director. The biggest weak links are James and Gad; never got into King of Queens but Here Comes the Boom was surprisingly not bad, but Gad is just annoying, like nails on a chalkboard. Sandler has had his fair share of crap, but Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison were decent, Zohan is a vastly underrated guilty pleasure, and Punch Drunk Love proved he has some chops. Plus Michelle Monaghan looks all kinds of yum in that uniform.

Cautiously optimistic...we've seen how Sandler's mere presence can ruin an excellent premise before.

Sandler and Kevin James

Lets be extremely honest and just that the only reason this is even news is because of Peter Dinklage. If he wasn't in it nobody would've clicked on this article. I can't even watch the old SNL's with Sandler skits anymore. He used to be funny, now its just really sad. Kevin James has never been funny, KIng of Queens was only funny because of Jerry Stiller. The Kevin James factor I just don't get.

Anything with Sandler and James is a NOPE for me. Sorry, Peter.

OK, so I know it's a Happy Madison production (hell, I'll watch an Adam Sandler movie, if it's not Happy Madison), but between the awesome short (which I was sorry he bought the rights to), and the fact the main supporting cast is mostly pretty good, gives me hope. Even Chris Columbus kind of gives me hope, as the guy at has some good movies to his name, even if he hasn't shown promise lately. So it's got Kevin James in it. Does it have any other regulars? I pray not, unless it's Steve Buscemi

This sounds very interesting and like it might actually have a plot unlike any of sandlers recent films.

I wanted to see this till Sandler's involvement, but he's the new Jack Black.

Still difficult to trust if this film will be any good considering, Sandler and James are in it. The rest of the cast is solid, but again anything with Sandler and James in it these days it total shit.

You know, James can be good still, unlike Sandler. I thoroughly enjoyed that UFC comedy he did.
