Adam Sandler has revealed his love of retro arcade games at the premiere of his latest movie, in which he has to save the world from Pac-Man and Donkey Kong.

In Pixels, the comedian teams up with Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage, Frozen star Josh Gad and Paul Blart: Mall Cop funnyman Kevin James to fight aliens intent on destroying the world using characters from games from the 1980s.

Speaking at the world premiere of the movie in New York, Sandler said: "I have got some skills but as things progressed and we got older and new games came out, I can't say I'm good at any of that stuff. I would like to be but I've got no time. But in the old days I was pretty good at that stuff."
