Now despite having posted movie items for a few years now over on my no longer in existence “PiercingMetal Musings Blog” (I merged that with the core website in a narrative found HERE), I am still getting used to serving up this kind of narrative on the PiercingMetal site. I’ve aimed at keeping to superhero, science fiction and monster movies but this one seemed to touch a little on each topic and be a comedy as well. Maybe some of our readers who are gamers will find this to their liking, so let’s see what Sony Pictures “Pixels” is all about care of their first trailer.
The Plot: In 1982, in the hopes of establishing peaceful communication with extraterrestrial life, NASA launches a time capsule into outer space containing images and footage of Earth life and culture. However, the aliens misinterpret enclosed video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war. They attack the Earth using the games as models for their various assaults including Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Centipede, Space Invaders, Arkanoid and Tetris. Their technology creates voxels that change form and are capable of turning any form of matter into more of itself. President Will Cooper calls upon his best friend since childhood, former video game professional Sam Brenner, who is now a home theater installer and had a previous relationship with Cooper’s wife. To combat the video game characters, Brenner decides to lead a team of retrogamers Eddie Plant and Ludlow Lamonsoff to defeat the aliens with technology similar to those used in games. (c/o Wiki)
