Summer movies are so fun this year and I am super excited to see Pixels in theaters later this month. This one is taking me back to my childhood for sure. Don't you love when something fun makes you feel nostalgic? Oh and did I mention this movie stars the hilarious Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad? That right there is a recipe for FUNNY! I was never very good at video games as a kid, and I must admit, I think Pacman gave me so much anxiety as a kid, but still I played it every chance I had. Check out these Pacman themed cookies I made.
If you haven't seen the trailer yet or heard about the film, here's your chance.
As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults -- and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
