A New PIXELS Trailer Doesn't Make It Look Any Better

This new trailer introduces you to the more of the band of classic game champions who must join forces to defeat this suspiciously specific alien invasion.

It's also the first time I've realized that the Peter Dinklage character is completely based off of King of Kong's Billy Mitchell.



Dinklage even plays the Donkey Kong champion in PIXELS. So, much like the rest of the movie, it's pretty on the nose.

Given that the last decade of summer blockbusters have mostly aimed right at the nostalgic feels, PIXELS seems like just another in a long run of cynical executive decision making. Let's hope it's more fun than that.
