OH EM GEEE! This li’l Disney Animation looks tres cools as us big kids should be able to remember 8 bit characters in games! This looks frikkin’ sick and here’s Drew Taylor’s take on it from the playlist:
The two-and-a-half-minute long trailer gives you a better sense of the movie’s central conceit – the villain of a “Rampage“/”Donkey Kong“-type game named Wreck-It Ralph (played by John C. Reilly) becomes dissatisfied with his career and “game jumps” to a “Call of Duty“-type shooter and a “Mario Kart“-style racing game – and the kind of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” world that the movie inhabits (complete with cameos from famous game characters including Sonic the Hedgehog and Bowser from “Mario Bros.”). By the time the trailer is over, if you aren’t jacked up like a kid who has mainlined a 2 liter bottle of Mountain Dew and stayed up all night playing “Grand Theft Auto,” we’re not sure what’s wrong with you.
WRECK IT RALPH releases on DECEMBER 26, 2012 in AUSTRALIA through WALT DISNEY MOTION PICTURE STUDIOS
