Gents, get ready, this summer your happy childhood will be exposed as a big fat lie!
Based on a 2010 short animated film by Patrick Jean, Pixels starts with aliens finding a time capsule that was released into space by NASA in 1982. Inside are bits and pieces of human pop culture, including videogames like Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Donkey Kong. But what was intended to be a message of peace is mistaken as a declaration of INTER-GALACTIC WAR!
Next thing we know, Earth's being attacked by huge pixelated videogame characters, including an oversized Pac-Man who likes munching on buildings and a Donkey Kong with barrels of pixel bombs!
