Adam Sandler's action comedy "Pixels" is being pushed back by two months, Sony Pictures said Tuesday.
The film will premiere on July 24, 2015, where it faces competition from supernatural thriller "Poltergeist" as well as "Trainwreck," another comedy from Sandler pal, Judd Apatow. "Pixels" had been slated for release on May 15, 2015, when it would have faced off against "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Pitch Perfect 2."
Their attack prompts the president (Kevin James) to enlist his childhood best friend (Sandler) to use the skills he honed as a Reagan-era video game champ to defend the world. Peter Dinklage and Brian Cox co-star.
Chris Columbus ("Mrs. Doubtfire") directs from a story by Tim Herlihy and a screenplay by Herlihy and Timothy Dowling. It will be produced by Sandler's Happy Madison label and Columbus' 1492 Films production house.
