While audiences will certainly get their share of frights and shocks at movie theaters in the coming weeks, there are also quite a few alternatives to Liam Neeson's euro-thriller and October horror romps opening in the next few weeks, including the action-thriller Alex Cross, Disney's 3-D animated Wreck-It Ralph, and the 23rd James Bond movie Skyfall. All three releases have new preview clips that have arrived online, offering potential audiences a chance to plan their movie-watching accordingly. catch up on the latest trailers

An arcade was a place where kids used to play video games, kids.
One of our most anticipated releases in November is Disney's upcoming 3-D animated Wreck-It Ralph, which celebrates and parodies video games from the 1980s to today, but in a way that doesn't require you to be a huge gamer (though it will help you to recognize the myriad of video game character cameos). The movie follows fictional video game character Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly), who is questioning his place in the pixelated video game world. Past trailers have focused on Ralph's dissatisfaction with Fix-It Felix, Jr., the 80s-inspired, Rampage meets Donkey Kong video game that has been his home for the past thirty years, but a new, international trailer reveals more of his friendship with Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman), a "glitch" from another video game, the candy-filled Sugar Rush. The result is going to make you want to grab some quarters and run to the nearest arcade (metaphorically speaking, of course).the latest in trailers

This movie looks like it's worth at least a quarter.
A few months ago at the San Diego Comic-Con, the panel for Disney's upcoming 3-D animated movie Wreck-It Ralph was one of the more entertaining presentations we attended. Director Rich Moore (a former animation director on The Simpsons and Futurama) revealed ten minutes of hilarious footage from the movie, which follows a fictional video game character named Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) who grows tired of playing bad guy in Fix-It Felix, Jr., the Rampage meets Donkey Kong video game that he's been "working" on for the past thirty years. The latest theatrical trailer, released by Yahoo!, reveals new jokes as well as more video game character cameos than the movie's first trailer, which should please video game fans. However, even if watching Zangief from Street Fighter offer Ralph helpful advice about being a villain doesn't quite resonate with you, there's plenty to enjoy in Wreck-It Ralph's latest trailer. watch the trailer >> Posted 09.13.12 by Ryan
The third and final part of Disney's presentation Thursday at the San Diego Comic-Con focused on the upcoming animated movie Wreck-It Ralph, which had it's first trailer released in June. If you missed it, and the panel, director Rich Moore, the former animation director on The Simpsons and Futurama, explained the movie's plot.
Wreck-It-Ralph is the story of a 1980s video game bad guy, who, after 30 years of doing the same job, he's decided maybe there's more to life than wrecking things. So he's having something of an existential crisis, a mid-life crisis. So he sets out on a journey to prove that he more than just a bad guy in a video game.
Moore announced he was going to reveal 10 minutes of the movie to the audience, starting with what looked like the opening moments where Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) explains the Fix-It Felix, Jr., a Rampage-Donkey Kong hybrid leaves him feeling alienated, even after the arcade has closed for the night. The second scene sees Ralph reveal to a group therapy session of other video game villains like Kano from Mortal Kombat and Zangief from Street Fighter that he's no longer interested in "being the bad guy." Wreck-It-Ralph is filled with video game character cameos, particularly in Grand Central Terminal, which connects all video games, and Moore admitted that getting permission for the cameos wasn't as hard as he thought it would be.

At first it seemed like it was going to be very difficult, but we figured, you know what, if we're making a movie about video games we should have the actual game characters from the games in the movie. So we just went for it. We met a lot of the people from the various video game companies together and started relationships with them and little by little they said yes.
On Wednesday more than 120,000 fan(atics) will be in San Diego for this year's Comic-Con and ReelzChannel will be amongst them. We're sending several correspondents to cover everything movie-related. Reelz will have coverage daily online at Reelz.com/comiccon2012 and on TV on Hollywood Dailies. Also, don't forget to check out our Comic-Con special, airing Saturday, July 21 at 7:30p ET and 4:30p PT.
From the mysterious project Elysium, to Quentin Taratino's Django Unchained, to Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, Reelz will be reporting all the details. Here's a tentative list of what we'll be covering at Comic-Con: Reelz's Comic-Con Coverage >> Posted 07.11.12 by Chris
Stuck in a rut? Feeling unappreciated? Working at a dead-end job? Hey, you're not the only one. Meet Wreck-It Ralph, the title star of Walt Disney Animation Studios' latest 3D CGI-animated feature. After thirty years of wrecking stuff as the villain of the Fix-It Felix, Jr. 8-bit video game, Wreck-it Ralph has had enough of faithfully doing his job only so that Fix-It Felix can play the hero and get all of the accolades. Longing for more, Wreck-It Ralph decides to leave his game and embark on a journey to discover whether he has what it takes to be a hero or if he's destined to be the villain.
If you've ever been a gamer, Wreck-It Ralph is the movie for you. The trailer alone is so chock-full of "celebrity" cameos — Bowser from Super Mario Bros., Clyde from Pac-Man, Neff from Altered Beast, Dr. Robotnik from Sonic the Hedgehog, Kano from Mortal Kombat, Zangief from Street Fighter, Q*Bert from, well, Q*Bert — it's like a trip down video game memory lane. watch the trailer >> Posted 06.09.12 by BrentJS
