Pac-Man Devours San Francisco in First 'Pixels' Posters

Sony Pictures has released the first posters for Pixels, a comedy that pits a group of classic arcade game enthusiasts against the very characters they spent a lot of quarters on in the '80s.

The posters get right to the heart of the film, which stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Jane Krakowski and Michelle Monaghan.

Directed by Chris Columbus, Pixels posits what would happen if aliens were real and interpreted classic arcade games as a declaration of war. The aliens attack Earth by bringing classic video games to life. To stop these creations from destroying the planet, the President of the United States (Kevin James) and a group of expert gamers will have to put their Pac-Man knowledge to work in the most high stakes game ever.

You can check out the posters below, which include characters from Pac-Man, Centipede and Space Invaders.

Pixels opens on Aug. 14, 2015.
