Pixels movie quotes show what happens when aliens send real life video game villains to attack earth. The action comedy film, which features live action and computer animation, was written by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling using a story Herlihy created. Chris Columbus directed Pixels, which opened in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on July 24, 2015.
In Pixels, because of a time capsule containing examples of pop culture was sent into space in 1982, outer space aliens think that video clips of retro video games is actually a declaration of war and go on the offensive. In retaliation, the aliens send real life versions of popular characters, such as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and even the Smurfs to earth to wipe out humanity.
President Will Cooper (Kevin James) is not equipped to deal with such a threat, but knows someone who does, his childhood best friend and Pac-Man champion Sam (Adam Sandler). Together, they gather a team of video game geeks, including Ludlow (Josh Gad) and Eddie (Peter Dinklage), to fight back. But to win this battle, they'll need to fight like you would in a video game something they've only done in games, not real life.Pixels is just one of many great summer 2015 movies along with Ant-Man, Trainwreck, Mr. Holmes, and Minions.
Ludlow Lamonsoff: Some alien life-force... has sent real life video games... to attack us.Sam Brenner: That makes sense.To sum up the plot of the film in one sentence, aliens have sent retro video game characters to attack planet Earth. It totally makes sense to Adam Sandler, but looking at his movies these days, what doesn't?
President Will Cooper: Don't tell anybody I killed a Smurf.With all of the flack that politicians get for silly mistakes they make these days, President Cooper is right to not want anyone to know he killed a Smurf. Imagine the headlines!
Ludlow Lamonsoff: The only way to take down Pac-Man is with ghosts.
Lieutenant Colonel Violet van Patten: You want ghosts? These are your ghosts!
President Will Cooper: We've never faced a threat like this before. We need video game expertise. These guys were champions back in '82.As if someone like Kevin James, no offense, would ever be president, it's even further far fetched to have the president tap video game geeks from the 1980s to save the world. But in the movies, anything goes.
