Trailer Watch: Wreck-It Ralph theatrical trailer

This is a few days old, but grad school has me off my blogging game, so… whatever. Anyway.

The Wreck-It Ralph teaser sold me on this already, but for those of you who aren’t so sure yet, this new theatrical trailer gives us a closer look at the story (and the cameos!) in the Disney CGI feature.

Veteran Simpsons and Futurama director Rich Moore’s Wreck-It Ralph will wreck the box office on November 2, 2012. John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, and Jane Lynch top-line the film, with Alan Tudyk, Mindy Kaling, Adam Carolla, Horatio Sanz and more rounding out the cast.

Trailer Watch: Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph

Disney’s next non-Pixar CG-animated feature centers around an analog for Donkey Kong — the titular Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) attempts to shed his bad-guy image by escaping into Hero’s Duty (Halo), but inadvertently wreaks havoc in the video-game universe by freeing a digital villain (sort of like Tron?) — and it’s all mixed in with Who Framed Roger Rabbit?-style cameos from popular video game characters.

So yeah. I had a grin on my face throughout the trailer. Jane Lynch as the tough-as-nails hottie from Hero’s Duty and Sarah Silverman as an obnoxious little girl (princess?) from some kind of Candyland-lookin’ world are inspired bits of casting, and the film looks great. This one’s a must-see for me.

Wreck-It Ralph was directed by Rich Moore (long-time TV animation veteran and sequence director for The Simpsons Movie) and opens on November 2, 2012.

Trailer Watch: Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator

Sacha Baron Cohen  is back with a more traditional (read: scripted) comedy this time: The Dictator, the “heroic story of dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.” Moviefone has the first trailer, which has a few good laughs in it.

The Dictator was directed by e and Brüno diretor Larry Charles and hits theaters on May 11, 2012. The film also stars Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly and Anna Faris (who either wasn’t in the trailer, or I blinked).
