A brand new international Wreck-It Ralph trailer is here, and you can watch it exclusively on EmpireOnline.com.
Boasting some fun new footage, it features a better glimpse at those dreaded 'cybugs', the Fix-It Felix Jr. game going out of order with Ralph's sudden departure and a dancer from Dance Dance Revolution giving the gang the all-clear, making it a fuller experience than those other teasers we've seen so far.
For those not already in the know, Wreck-It Ralph finds the title character (voiced by John C. Reilly) sick and tired of his repetitive, unrewarding gig as the villain of 8-bit arcade platform game Fix-It Felix Jr.
For years he’s been destroying the same building day after day after day, with the tenants inside uniformly refusing to spend time with him socially even outside of working hours, preferring the company of the hero of the game, Fix-It Felix Jr. (Jack McBrayer).
So Ralph decides to jump from his game to others, including first-person shooter Hero’s Duty and racing game Sugar Rush, to see if he can finally become the champion he thinks he could be. Along the way, he finds a possible new friend in fellow outcast Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) and learns there are worse things lurking in the arcade than low self-esteem.
Wreck-It Ralph arrives in the US on November 2, making its way across to the UK on February 15. Like what you see but can't handle the wait? Try playing the Fix-It Felix Jr. game to tide you over in the meantime.
Really looking forward to it, even if Disney are once again screwing their UK audience by making them wait months for an English-English translation. Seriously, this is what piracy was made for.
The only other thing that concerns me is the worrying amount of Sonic The Hedgehog on those posters, particularly the poster which is basically just Sonic. I love Sonic, but his participation in this movie seems to be an advert on the side of a bin, so what's he doing advertising the whole film? More
I feel like I've seen this story done a million times.
Character doubts himself,tries to change his ways,goes on a endless journey of self (loathing) discovery,teams up with an unlikely asset,bad circumstances arise due to characters 'change',Character and Asset/partner save the day.
And once the novelty of the visual world wears thin,say 30 mins in,you are fundamentally watching a premise which has been done many a-times.
But maybe I'm being a cynical sod. More
At this time of Pixar coasting it of late (the last great movies was Toy Story 3 and Up) the other CG studios have seemed to step up. Paranorman was great, and this has a great idea and the trailers seem to prove they have lived up to it. Also, as a gamer this could be a very rare thing - a good video game movie. More
