Ralph is the destructive bad guy in an 8-bit arcade game that’s celebrating its 30th Anniversary. The problem is that he’s not happy with his role. Wreck-It Ralph is the story of his search for something better – and possibly the best video game movie ever.
In between the teaser-for-the-trailer and the actual trailer, Disney has released the teaser poster for Iron Man 3 – along with an official tagline and synopsis (which follow the jump). Check ‘em out!
After Dark Shadows missed the mark by so much, it’s a relief to be able to say that Frankenweenie is vintage Tim Burton.
While the trailers for Frankenweenie have been terrific, and all the press releases for it have noted that it’s a very personal project for Tim Burton, I think it will take seeing this making of featurette to really drive home how important the film is to him. Various cast and crew – including Martin Landau, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Winona Ryder and Burton – talk about the film and its making.
With The Odd Life of Timothy Green, Peter Hedges tells a quietly magical tale of a uniquely odd family that feels like a movie that we can return to time and again.
From Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead Trilogy, Spider-Man Trilogy) comes the story of Oz The Great and Powerful, about how a circus magician of dubious ethics became The wizard of OZ,s man behind the curtain.
Disney’s official description of the film follows the jump.
Disney’s Mars Needs Moms – opening Friday – is based on the book of the same name by Berke Breathed [Bloom County]. Its plot combines things that kids can relate to – like hating broccoli, and being an interplanetary adventurer – with amazing CG animation from Industrial Light & Magic. Check out the ‘No broccoli’ clip then follow the jump to the movie’s ‘Stay Cool’ Trailer.
It’s that time of summer, again: Bruckheimer time. Instead of another National Treasure film, though, this time we’ve got The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – inspired by [and including an homage to] the Mickey Mouse/Sorcerer’s Apprentice short from Fantasia. It’s a loud, jam-packed, cheerily crazy piece of work that could spawn yet another franchise for Bruckheimer and star Nicolas Cage.
Toy Story 3 is that most unusual of films: a second sequel that matches – or betters – its predecessors. The setting, as with Toy Stories 1 & 2, is the present – which means that Andy [John Morris] is about to head off to college. For Woody [Tom Hanks], Buzz [Time Allen] and the rest of his toys, this is a time for panic. Will they be thrown away? Stored in the attic? Donated to someone else?
