Watch the short film on which Adam Sandler’s ‘Pixels’ is based

Just this week we shared the trailer for Pixels, an Adam Sandler action, sci-fi comedy about aliens taking the form of ’80s video games and terrorizing the planet. According to Variety, that trailer broke a record by landing 34 million trailer views in its first 24 hours of being online.

But the film actually derives from a 2010 short film by Patrick Jean, and if the new Pixels is half as creative as this short is, I’m sold. Seen here, it’s such an elegant idea with a real love for classic gaming and feels even rightfully ominous. /Film originally shared the video back in 2010 and demanded that Roland Emmerich make this his next movie. They’ll have to settle for Chris Columbus, but anyway, check it out above.
