Trailer for Disney’s ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ – Starring John C. Reilly

Disney’s 52nd animated feature is set to be Wreck-It Ralph – and we have the first trailer here…

It’s been directed by Rich Moore – who has worked on The Simpsons and Futurama. It stars John C Reilly as Wreck-It Ralph, Jack  McBrayer (30 Rock) as Fix-It Felix Jr. and features Jane Lynch (Glee) and Sarah Silverman.

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ is the bad guy in the video game Fix-It Felix Jr, and for 30 years he’s been doing the same thing and he’s fed up of it – he wants to be the good guy. He abandons his game and sets off through the video arcade to prove he can be a hero. But in doing so he inadvertently releases a deadly threat that could unleash chaos across the entire video arcade.

This looks seriously cute. The nostalgia quotient is also quite high with cameos by old school game characters amongst the made up ones (how many could you spot?) Makes me yearn for the good old days (where did I put my Mega Drive?) Hopefully the story will live up to the trailer and not turn into a damp squib. It would be a real shame if such a great premise just fizzled out. At the moment this is a film I want to see…


The movie is currently set for a 3D release (obviously) this November.

#6 – Countdown to Halloween: MONSTERS INC.

I have two things to say before I delve into this article.  Number one, I love Halloween.  I love the spooky creatures, the crisp air, the jack-o-lanterns, the candy.  Number two, I hate horror films.  I really, really do.  I was one of those kids that had nightmares from anything scarier than a Goosebumps book.  Even in adulthood, the films are either too scary and the images haunt me for months, or too cheesy which just bores me.  I’m the weirdo watching the History Channel specials about werewolves or reading Dracula for the 254,235th time.  (A brief side note: if they ever decide to make a decent film adaptation of the Bram Stoker novel, I would most likely love it.)
