Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Movie posters might not be as epically conceived as they once were with Photoshop taking the place of awesome artists and impressive graphics, but that doesn’t mean the occasional example of the form doesn’t get folks excited. IGN featured a quartet of posters from Disney’s upcoming CGI flick Wreck-It-Ralph, featuring stars Ralph, Fix-It-Felix, Sergeant Calhoun and Vanellope von Schweetz as well as video game stalwarts Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr. Robotnik, Q*bert and his villain Coily, Pac Man nemesis Clyde, Neff from Altered Beast and Street Fighters M. Bison and Zangief.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy-winning director Rich Moore (TV’s “The Simpsons,” “Futurama”) take moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in “Wreck-It Ralph.” Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly, “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Step Brothers”) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer, “30 Rock”), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing andseeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch, TV’s “Glee”) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, “The Sarah Silverman Program”) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D in select theaters.
Directed by Rich Moore of The Simpsons, Wreck-It-Ralph features the voice talents of John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and others. It’s set to premiere from Walt Disney Animation Studios on Nov. 2.
