Here's a trailer for Adam Sandler's arcade game comedy Pixels

Disaster film.

There's a new trailer for Pixels, an apocalyptic Adam Sandler film where the bad guys are video game characters Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Space Invaders.

The plot, such that it is, has aliens sending down evil versions of Earth's arcade game heroes to attack us, for some reason.

The film stars Denis Akiyama, who plays Toru Iwatani, the real-life creator of Pac-Man.

Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage, True Detective's Michelle Monaghan, and voice of Olaf from Frozen Josh Gad also have starring roles.

Pixels is due to launch in cinemas on 12th August in the UK. See how it looks in the new trailer below.
