I have a hard time figuring out exactly who Pixels is made for. Is it for the man children that Adam Sandler has spent his entire career trying to sell to, or is it for folks who’d recognize videogames in general? In the same vein as that one episode of Futurama or Wreck-It Ralph, aliens thinking videogames were weapons invade earth and now it’s up to a group of man children to save the Earth.
This trailer has a bit more to see than the first one, notably there’s more Peter Dinklage, but it’s still the same movie. Also Q Bert, I guess. Pixels releases July 24th.
