Honest Trailers Pixels

I have to be honest; I did not see Pixels. I saw the preview and thought it looked like a great idea and a lot of fun, but then I remembered one thing. Adam Sandler hasn’t been in a live-action comedy I actually enjoyed since Bedtime Stories in 2008 almost a decade ago… and seriously, if I didn’t have small kids, I probably would’ve skipped that one too. Adam Sandler has gone from one of Hollywood’s can’t miss comedic actors, to being relegated to direct to Netflix “comedies” like The Ridiculous Six and most recently The Do-Over. He’s an easy target for sarcasm and ridicule, and thus we get an Honest Trailer for his 2015 critical flop Pixels by the gang at Screen Junkies.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

Pixels By Patrick Jean

The first official image from the upcoming movie Pixels has been released, featuring stars Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, and Michelle Monaghan.

The movie is based on the hit short film of the same name, which sees classic arcade games invading a city. In the movie, aliens mistake a satellite feed of these classic arcade games as a declaration of war, and invade our planet using mimicry of the games and their strategies. This leads the U.S. president (played by Kevin James) to turn to three of his childhood friends, former arcade game prodigies who haven’t amounted to anything in their adults years, one being a TV mechanic (Sandler), one being a felon (Dinklage), and one being a conspiracy theorist (Gad). Monaghan plays a weapons expert who helps the trio. Basically, that episode of Futurama.

You can check out the first image from Pixels below.

Pixels By Patrick Jean

Back in 2010 a very cool little animated short by French filmmaker Patrick Jean titled Pixels took the ‘net by storm. In it, a variety of classic arcade games invade New York City.

Not long after that came word that Adam Sandler‘s Happy Madison had acquired the rights to develop a feature-length adaptation of the short, and that Tim Herlihy would be writing the screenplay.

Now comes word that Sandler himself will star in the movie, and it looks like he’ll be joined by at least one old friend as Grown Ups co-star Kevin James and Josh Gad (Frozen) have entered into negotiations to star as well.

Back in May it was reported that Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions had acquired the rights to make a feature-length film based on Pixels, the wildfire viral video from director Patrick Jean that took the world by storm earlier this year (Read: Atari Apocalypse: ‘Donkey Kong’ & Other Classic Arcade Games Invade New York In ‘Pixels’).

Sandler’s company isn’t waiting around to get things moving, having now hired longtime friend and writer Tim Herlihy to pen the script for the movie. Herlihy started writing for Saturday Night Live while Sandler was still a cast member, and the two went on to work with each other many more times. Titles that Herlihy helped write for Sandler include Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy, Big Daddy, Little Nicky, and Mr. Deeds.

The short video for which the movie will be based showed a world where classic arcade game characters and elements come to life and wreak havoc on the city. In Happy Madison’s feature, it’s said that they want to take a Ghostbusters action/comedy approach to their take.

Pixels

Back at the beginning of April, an amazing short film called Pixels by Patrick Jean and Paris visual effects studio One More Productions was unleashed on the world. In the video, the classic video games of the ’80s invaded Earth in all of their pixelated glory and basically take over the world (Read: Atari Apocalypse: ‘Donkey Kong’ & Other Classic Arcade Games Invade New York In ‘Pixels’).

The short video spread like fire, making it one of the more popular videos we’ve seen in a long while. And now that popularity is glowing brightly, as it has been announced that a new feature-length movie will be made based on the concept. Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions are developing the movie with Jean, and they’re out to Columbia Pictures to set the project up with the studio, which has a first-look deal with Madison.

Be sure to click over to the other side if you haven’t seen the short film, Pixels yet.
