MINI has announced the Cooper S three-door will have a starring role in the upcoming Pixels movie.

Set to be released this summer, the movie tells the story of aliens who recover a time capsule that was sent into space in 1982.  It included examples of our "life and culture" including video games such as Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Space Invaders.

While it was intended to teach extraterrestrials about life on earth, the aliens saw Space Invaders as a declaration of war as the game involves destroying aliens.  As a result, they send characters from the games to destroy mankind.

In a last ditch effort, the U.S. government recruits four "talented old-school arcaders from the 1980s" to defeat the invading video game baddies.  

Pixels will hit U.S. movies theaters on July 24th and the film stars Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Denis Akiyama and Josh Gad.
