New, 27 comments

Columbia Pictures released a quintet of promotional posters today for its upcoming movie Pixels, the Adam Sandler-led disaster film about an alien invasion of Earth using video game icons, and, well, they're fantastic.

Featured in the five posters are Pac-Man swallowing up San Francisco, Donkey Kong barreling down on Tokyo, Centipedes over London, a Galaga bug descending on Sydney and Space Invaders towering over Paris. You can see all five Pixels posters below.

Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus (The Goonies, Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) and stars Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad as a trio of old-school arcade gamers who are tasked with using their gaming skills to save the world from giant video game sprites. The movie also stars Kevin James as the president of the United States, Jane Krakowski as the first lady and Michelle Monaghan as a weapons developer and military specialist.

The 2015 movie is based on the Patrick Jean-directed short film of the same name. Pixels opens July 24.
