'Wreck-It Ralph' Trailer: Redemption Comes Choked with Pandering Video Game References

June 6, 2012


As introduced by a lead voice John C. Reilly, who's becoming increasingly indistinguishable from alter-ego Steve Brule, here's the trailer for Wreck-It Ralph, Disney's animated film about a retro arcade game villain attempting to reform himself as a hero by "game jumping"--which basically means the film is a fun little redemption story coated in layers of video game references for we familiar with button-pushing entertainment to enjoy. The licensing required for the above shot alone is staggering--Zangief, M. Bison, Dr. Robotnik, Kano, Bowser, a Pac-Man ghost and a Beholder are in a single scene!--so it's definitely worth checking out if you still have any idea what I'm talking about, you nerd.
