Last August, a photo circulated in which Peter Dinklage was seen brandishing a mullet and laser cannon on the set of the sci-fi comedy "Pixels." Our interest was piqued, and it hasn't waned after seeing the aforementioned garb's end results: a movie where aliens send video-game characters to attack Earth. That means a malicious Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Cintepede are going up against all-star gamers played by Adam Sandler, Josh Gad and Dinklage. Also on hand are Kevin James, playing the U.S. president who must solve the crisis, and Michelle Monaghan as a military weapons developer. Directed by Chris Columbus ("Home Alone," "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"), "Pixels" launches its missile command on July 24.
