Why thank you, Sony Pictures, for dropping a song on us that we can put to better use than just about anybody else, since we’re a sci-fi radio station. Take three minutes out to watch this great jumping music video for Game On, by Atlanta rap artist Waka Flocka Flame and guest artist Good Charlotte. The song will make its debut as the end credits song in Pixels, from Sony Pictures, due out nationwide on July 24.
As always, take a moment to pause the Krypton Radio stream using the handy controller at the top of the page before hitting play on this video.
As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus. The screenplay is by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling, with a screen story by Herlihy, based on the short film by Patrick Jean. The film is produced by Adam Sandler, Chris Columbus, Mark Radcliffe and Allen Covert.
You can also now hear this song on Krypton Radio. Seriously, we really are cut out for this stuff.
