As Django Unchained prepares for its year-end release, news has broken about one more addition to the already star-studded cast. Rex Linn, who plays Tennessee Harry in the film, recently revealed that Quentin Tarantino himself would appear in a small role — as he has in several of his other directorial efforts, including Inglourious Basterds, Death Proof, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs.
“Quentin told me that he liked the scene so much he wanted to be in it, too, and that he would also be taking some of my lines,” Linn told Look At OKC. “So, you’ll know the scenes when you see them. We’ll be on the screen with Don Johnson and Jonah Hill. The scenes may not be long, but you will remember them.” [via The Playlist]

Briefly: While there will likely be quite a wait for rides based on the games in Disney’s video game film, Wreck-It Ralph, the characters themselves will start appearing in the parks in November. In Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (voiced by Sarah Silverman) will be at the Magic of Disney Animation attraction to greet fans who walk through a making of exhibit. Then, at Disneyland in California, the pair will be in the Starcade in Tomorrowland watching people play Fix-It Felix, Jr. and checking out scenes from Sugar Rush (above).
For more on Wreck-It Ralph, check out the latest trailer. Thanks to Disney for the heads up. The film opens November 2.
With Wreck-It Ralph, not only is Disney making a movie about video games, they’re paying homage to video games. In addition to the story of Ralph (John C. Reilly), Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) and fictional games like Fix-It Felix Jr., Sugar Rush and Hero’s Duty, real life games all exist in this world. There’s Pac-Man, Q-Bert, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter II, all of the classic games we grew up with in the Eighties and Nineties.
A new set of posters for the film has been revealed that focuses on those tangental characters and fans of video games are surely going to love them. Check them out below. Read More »
Hopefully the release of the latest trailer for Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph has left you looking for more information, because we’re happy to oblige. Earlier this summer, /Film was invited to Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, CA to talk about the November 2 release and we learned a lot. 50 things, to be exact. Many of those came from a one-on-one interview with Rich Moore, the director of the film.
You may not know Moore by name or sight, but you know his work. He was the director of some of the most famous episodes of The Simpsons, such as: Itchy and Scratchy: The Movie, The Telltale Head, Flaming Moe’s, and Marge vs. The Monorail. Wreck-It Ralph is his feature debut and in our interview he revealed tons of info on the video game-influenced film.
For example, was the candy-filled game Sugar Rush a way to balance the inclusion of stereotypically male video games? How did the Disney/Pixar brain trust influence the story? Why are some major video game characters noticeably absent from the film? What character might help direct the plot of a potential sequel and what exactly was Extreme Easy Living 2, a game created for – but cut from – the movie? Read about all that and more after the jump.

Video game and documentary fans should know the name Steve Wiebe. He’s the star of The King of Kong, Seth Gordon’s awesome 2007 documentary about how Wiebe battled master gamer Billy Mitchell for the world record high score at Donkey Kong. The film made Wiebe a household name in those circles and now Disney has brought him in for another challenge.
Wiebe went to Gameworks in Seattle, WA during the Penny Arcade Expo (better known as PAX) to play Fix-It Felix Jr., the game at the center of Disney’s November 2 release Wreck-It Ralph. There he played the game for the first time and set the high score on the machine. Check out a video of Wiebe’s achievement, as well as an interview with the master gamer himself, after the jump.
