The action-comedy starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and Peter Dinklage has been fully detailed.
As previously reported, Sony will be releasing 'Pixels' on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D sometime later this year, and now the date has been set for October 27.
When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth using games like PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede and Space Invaders as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, 80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler) to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
Each release will feature 1080p video, Dolby Atmos (Dolby TrueHD 7.1 compatible) audio, and supplements include: Q*Bert - The adorable digital bit hopper comes to life in PIXELS; Dojo Quest - A look at the new classic arcade game that gave life to the unstoppable Lady Lisa; and Game On Music Video by Waka Flocka Flame ft. Good Charlotte.
