A couple of newly-released featurettes for the videogame-inspired, alien-invasion comedy "Pixels," starring Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Kevin James and Michelle Monaghan, offer a short but interesting introduction to the film's arcade heroes (Sandler, Gad, Dinklage, Q-bert etc.) and a fictional female videogame hero named Lady Lisa (played by model-actress Ashley Benson, of "Spring Breakers" fame).

The sci-fi action film, directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter, Mrs. Doubtfire), imagines an alien attack on Earth, only if the aliens took the form of classic 8-bit arcade characters -- such as Pac-man (he's a bad guy!), Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede and so on.

Based on a 2010 short film of the same name by graphic designer Patrick Jean, the movie opens on July 24th.

When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper has to call on his childhood best friend, ‘80s video game champion Sam Brenner, now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders to defeat the aliens and save the planet.
