Prime "Pixels" Posters

Sony Pictures has released a batch of really cool looking posters for the feature length adaptation of French filmmaker Patrick Jean's 2010 short film "Pixels".

The original short, features 1980s video game characters like Donkey Kong, Tetris, Space Invaders, Frogger and Pac-Man attacking New York City and turning everything they hit into pixels - with the entire planet being pixeled.

The goal is to make film into a Ghostbusters-style action comedy in which characters come out of a video game to wreak havoc in the real world. Video game experts are recruited by the government to help deal with the threat.

Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Brian Cox Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones," "X-Men Days of Future Past") Michelle Monaghan Jane Krakowski and Josh Gad  also star in the big-budget comedy.

Tim Herlihy (Bedtime Stories) worked on the script that was rewritten by Timothy Dowling (Role Models, This Means War) from which Chris Columbus will direct.

Sandler, Jack Giarraputo, Benjamin Darras, Johnny Alves and Matias Boucard are producing.

 Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Centipede, Donkey Kong and Galaga get their own posters, with more sheets expected soon.

Pixels opens in theaters on July 24, 2015.
