The second trailer for the upcoming sci-fi/action/comedy mashup Pixels has been released, highlighting character backstories and showing off even more of the iconic video-game creations that have been sent to earth by aliens to destroy us.
The premise is interesting, and there are some genuine laughs in this new Pixels trailer, but the film could honestly go either way in term of quality, mostly because of the actors involved.
Here is the new Pixels trailer:
Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and Josh Gad don’t really have a good track record right now, at least in my book, for making comedies I care about (Peter Dinklage may save the whole thing). Hopefully that will change with Pixels, which does truly look like a fun time. The nostalgia of seeing these old video game creations larger than life might alienate younger audiences, however, so that is another risk with the success of the film.
Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus, and it hits theaters on July 24.
