Aliens received a message from Earth. This was a message of peace, but it was taken the wrong way. We sent them video games, fads, brain teasers and other objects…and the aliens sent them back to kill us.
Pixels is the story of Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie Plant (Peter Dinklage) as they fight to save the planet. Why are they chosen? First: Cooper is now the President of the United States, and second: they spent their entire childhoods beating these characters (except Pac-Man, who was the good guy).
With the support of the US Military behind them, the four friends and Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan) take their new specialized weaponry, including suped-up Mini ghosts, to stop the invaders.
