This Summer’s Shitty Adam Sandler Movie Was Actually Based On Something Cool

This summer, Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Production company, will be releasing a film about aliens who attack the Earth by taking the form of classic 80’s arcade video game characters. Sandler plays a former 80’s era video game champion who’s been tasked with saving the planet with his dorky gamer pals. Expect fart jokes, Pac-Man eating some phallic shaped building, Donkey King/King Kong references and Adam Sandler’s faux blue collar chill bro vibes all being wrangled by the trope-tastic Night at the Museum blockbuster director, Chris Columbus.

Insert, “Pac-Man eats sea men.” joke here.

 

Underneath all of the douche bag Sandler culture though, is actually a very unique and original film concept. The initial idea actually came from a short film by Director Patrick Jean (of One More Production). Back in 2010, Patrick Jean, made an inspired short film about a pixelated doomsday cloud that takes over a city with massive classic arcade game characters. The film is more of a visual concept than any kind of plot driven story but from it, Colombia purchase purchased rights to base their feature film on it.
