When Disney first unveiled Wreck-It Ralph to the world, it almost seemed too good to be true. The most storied animation studio in the world was making a wholly original, video game inspired film, chock full of your favorite characters. Directed by Rich Moore and featuring the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, the film won’t be out until November 2. Despite presentations at D23 Expo, CinemaCon, Comic-Con, an awesome trailer and more, there’s still much to discover about the world of Wreck-It Ralph.
Earlier this week, Disney invited several journalists to their Animation Studios in Burbank, CA to learn all about this film and watch about 25 minutes of footage. The footage was very rough and unfinished, but extremely promising and exciting. We also spoke to people from all facets of the production and have come up with 50 things you may not know about Wreck-It Ralph.
How do Mentos, the Microsoft Kinect and the Royal Wedding fit in? What percentage of their work has each department completed? Which records has the film already set? Was there a full game that got cut from the film? And what new story tidbits were revealed in the footage? It’s all after the jump, complete with brand new images. Read More »

Ridley Scott’s featured some fantastic fictional women over the years, but perhaps none are more beloved than Alien‘s Ellen Ripley. James Cameron’s Aliens then added to the kickass female roster with characters like Vasquez, Ferro, and Dietrich, and even the most recent installment of the franchise — the prequel Prometheus — featured prominent female character in the form of Shaw and Vickers.
All of which makes it a little surprising and deeply disapointing that Gearbox Software gives women the short shrift in its upcoming release Aliens: Colonial Marines. The multiplayer shooter reportedly won’t include any playable female characters, only male ones. Not surprisingly, that decision isn’t going over so well with some of its intended audience, and at least one of them is doing something about it: Gamer Melissa K has started a petition demanding the inclusion of at least one such character before the game’s February 2012 release.

The painful five month wait until Disney unleashes its awesome looking film Wreck-It Ralph can now be filled by entering the world of the movie yourself. In the film, directed by Rich Moore, the title character (voiced by John C. Reilly) is the bad guy in a Donkey Kong/Rampage game called Fix-It Felix, with the title hero voiced by 30 Rock‘s Jack McBrayer. Eventually, Ralph gets fed up with his villainous role and flees the game looking for a new home in one of dozens of other recognizable, and not-so-recognizable, video games.
Disney has just released a playable, online version of Fix-It Felix for your time-wasting pleasure. Several new international one sheets have also come online showing new images of several of the main characters. Check it all out below. Read More »
