Sony Pictures has set sci-fi adventure “Pixels” for release on May 15, 2015 — when it will open against Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max: Fury Road” and Universal’s “Pitch Perfect 2.”

“Pixels” stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage.

Chris Columbus is directing, with shooting starting next month. Script by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling is based on the short film directed by Patrick Jean and produced by One More Production.

“Pixels” will be produced by Happy Madison’s Sandler and Allen Covert, along with 1492 Pictures’ Columbus, Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe.

The story centers on aliens misinterpreting video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, leading to an attack on Earth, using the games as models for their assaults.
