Based on a font identification request over at Typography.guru.

A recreation of the typeface used for the titles of the film Sneakers, evidently inspired by the MICR aesthetics, filtered through the over-the-top flair of arcade video-games graphics.

Only |J|Q|Z| are done from scratch, but most letters still needed some interpretation in order to choose what to keep as a detail and what to discard as just an artefact.

As per the samples available, it's just uppercase (plus the lonely lowercase |c|).

It is possible that the original wasn't a pixel font after all, or that the pixels weren't square, and probably it had a higher resolution than 13×13.

@riccard0 - A very nice recreation!  :^)  I've also noticed that J Q Z are often the hardest letters to find examples.

Thank you @Goatmeal , yes I was fortunate enough that the font was used not just for the title, but also for the actors' names (and that they had many different and somewhat rare letters in them), and for the end credits of the trailer (I got |W| there, or, rather, I got a white blob that I tried to figure out ;-)
