Movies allow us to experience life through another person's eyes. Video games allow us to experience life through another person's eyes -- and to control their decisions. We spend hours upon hours with these video game characters, until we feel like we know them; Mario, Sonic, Pac-Man, their adventures are so memorable, and their personalities so vivid that they almost seem alive. But of course their adventures and their personalities are all predetermined by programming, and they remain forever trapped by their unbreakable directives. If these characters weren't just a series of electronic impulses and computer code, it would be a tragic existence.
That, essentially, is the premise of 'Wreck-It Ralph,' a manic children's film about the souls of video game avatars. Made by Disney, it greatly resembles the premise of Disney's (and Pixar's) modern classic 'Toy Story,' in which toys are revealed to have lives and thoughts of their own when no one's around to play with them. Here we learn that when a suburban arcade shuts down for the night, the characters inside all the games cross over into each other's universes to socialize.
As if video game nostalgia weren't enough to get audiences into the theater, 'Wreck-it Ralph,' which opens November 2, has been laying out more and more content to get people excited. The latest are two featurettes that highlight the making of the film, and the voice cast, which includes John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch.
If you played video games when you were a kid, you'll recognize some very familiar faces in these four new 'Wreck-It Ralph' posters. Q*Bert, Neff, M. Bison (!!!), Clyde, Inky, and Dr. Robotnik are all featured alongside characters from the film in these delightfully colorful new posters.
We brought you the premiere of the 'Wreck-It Ralph' trailer this week, but if you're craving more video game goodness, we've got a brand new poster to get you stoked about one of the most anticipated animated films of the year.
'Wreck-It Ralph' is one of our most anticipated films of the year, and it has a brand new theatrical trailer to introduce you to the world of Ralph -- a video game baddie who's tired of playing mean and wants to explore the life of the good guys.
Rich Moore’s ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ sounds like a gamer’s dream. Set in the world of video-game arcades, it intros a classic villain (voiced by John C. Reilly) who longs to be a hero. When he escapes his own game and sneaks into an advanced, first-person shooter, though, he unwillingly unleashes a true force of evil, creating all kinds of troubles.
Who might help him? Find out in this new official image (and see how many classic video game characters you can spot).
Has anyone out there ever listened to the ‘Step Brothers’ audio commentary? It's 100 times funnier than the actual film. How? Well, it’s a musical, which means Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and director Adam McKay sing the entire track. They dance through rap, opera, country ... everything, all scored by composer Jon Brion. It’s genius – and apparently was supposed to be the start of something bigger.
