Sony Pictures Home Entertainment says that it is game-on come Oct. 27 with the three-SKU onslaught of director Chris Columbus’ Pixels.
This Adam Sandler/Kevin James homage comedy to early-‘80s video games pulled in $73.3 million during its summer theatrical run and arrives in the home entertainment market place with an ARR of just 95 days.
As to consumer choices, there will be a stand-alone DVD edition, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and a second Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack featuring a 3D viewing option (the premium is seven bucks in the SRP for the extra Blu-ray disc in the 3D SKU).
As to bonus goodies, common to all three release offerings are a pair of production featurettes — “Q*Bert” and “Dojo Ques” — and Waka Flocka Flame music video (featuring Good Chalotte), “Game On.”
Exclusive to the two Blu-ray product offerings are six additional featurettes — “The Creator of the Machine,” “The Space Invader,” “PAC-MAN,” “Donkey Kong,” “Centipede” and “Galaga.”
