Pixels is the new comedy movie from director Chris Columbus that sees pixelated videogame characters overrunning New York City. It’s just been dated.

If this premise sounds familiar, it’s because it was inspired by this classic YouTube short. Perhaps you’ve already seen it?

Starring Adam Sandler, Michelle Monaghan and Tyrion Lannister himself Peter Dinklage, Pixels will open in cinemas on May 15, 2015.

That’s the same day as Mad Max reboot Fury Road, by the way.
