Video games and movies have never had a happy marriage. Good games rarely become good movies and good movies rarely become good games. But there had to be a sweet spot, and Disney has found it. That sweet spot is Wreck-It Ralph, a movie set in the world of video games, but not bound by any one in particular. It’s a smart, fun, entertaining film for the whole family that constantly surprises and provides laughs while always focusing on its clever, heartwarming story. And while a knowledge of Sega, Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft isn’t essential, it surely enhances the journey of a would-be hero figuring out who he really is… as he ventures through a candy themed racing game. It’s the best animated Disney movie of the year and one of the best video game movies of all time.

Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph, an epic adventure set in a video arcade, primarily focuses on the worlds and characters of three fictional games: Fix-It Felix Jr., an old-school stand up inspired by Donkey Kong and Rampage; Sugar Rush, a sit-down racing game blending Mario Kart and Candyland; and Hero’s Duty, a first person shooter in the mold of Time Crisis, Call of Duty and Halo. Disney recently released viral commercials for the first two games, seen here and here, and now the trilogy is complete. After the jump, check out the commerical for Hero’s Duty, featruing the music of popular dubstep artist Skrillex. Read More »
Disney’s latest animated film, Wreck-It Ralph, is a marketing dream. A movie set in the world of video games blends two hugely popular, and lucrative, mediums into one family friendly product. So far we’ve seen tons of cool posters, some viral trailers and and now things are hitting the street.
A reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle found several photo booths posing as bus stops on the streets of the city and documented the experience. It’s a pretty cool free, viral experience. Check out the images, as well as a few new clips from the film, after the jump. Read More »
One of the many truths you may not know about Disney’s upcoming film Wreck-It Ralph is that about half the movie, maybe more, takes place in the video game Sugar Rush. Inspired by Mario Kart, with a whole lot of Candyland thrown in, it’s the world where Ralph (John C. Reilly) befriends a glitch named Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) and develops a friendship that changes the arcade forever.
Some were worried knowing so much of the film takes place in this game but it’s, by far, the most interesting world created by director Rich Moore and his team. Both Fix It Felix Jr. and Hero’s Duty are incredibly cool, but the level of visual detail and brilliant use of the candy theme make Sugar Rush a world you really don’t want to leave. Want proof? Disney has released a commerical for the game that gives you a hint at just a few of the cool twists and turns you can expect. Check it out below. Read More »
