It's not a video game in case anyone was wondering. Rather, it's a movie revolving around videogames.

It's a Disney production directed by Rich Moore whose also directed Futurama and Simpsons. Not much to say really apart from the fact that it looks really interesting not as well as an enjoyable flick for a broad audience without being too specific.

Here's a big screencap. See how many characters you can spot.

This appeals to my interests!

#3 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Heh, that's kinda cute I guess. 

#4 Posted by JCTango (1358 posts) -

What? Zangief's a villain? Damn it... I don't know what to believe anymore :(.

Looks good!

#5 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -

I'm a sucker for Disney movies in general and this looks... right up my alley. Super excited!

#6 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

...I am so confused about this whole thing.

#7 Posted by Mister_Snig (562 posts) -

That's the first time I've found Sarah Silverman likable.

But yeah, this looks awesome and I can't wait to watch it.

#8 Posted by Wacomole (815 posts) -

That looks like a sure-fire winner.

Certainly made me giggle.

Also #yearoftheBowser, calling it.

I can't believe Bowser is in this movie. Nintendo's not too fond of their characters being in movies since the terrible Super Mario one. It was a big deal for the Link to the Past music to be in Scott Pilgrim, and use of their music in Beiber's move was denied. They must have payed big DisneyDollars for that cameo.

I think it looks good. Defiantly in my realm of interests. I'll see it when it comes out this fall.

#11 Posted by SpanxMcFranks (88 posts) -

I will check this out. It looks pretty good.

#12 Posted by Mushir (2389 posts) -

This looks very interesting. Seeing Bowser and Robotnik was a nice surprise!

#13 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

I wonder if there's going to be a video game of this.

#14 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: You would expect one given how the industry works these days but considering the massive amounts of cameos I would imagine that it's going to be a licensing Hell if they wanted to develop one.

#15 Posted by RecSpec (3766 posts) -

Pleasantly surprised by this. I didn't think it would appeal to me at all for some reason, but it looks neat.

#16 Posted by Cathryn (545 posts) -

Thanks for sharing! This looks like a lot of fun and I love John C. Reilly. I may even go check this out in theatres.

#17 Posted by Hunter5024 (5546 posts) -

I'm a little concerned about John C Reilly half of what makes the movies he's in funny are all of the jokes the actors make up. He won't have that freedom in an animated movie. That being said I'm going to see this asap because it's tickling the tiny child Hunter5024 buried deep in my cold black dead heart.

I missed this thread and just made a duplicate, but then spotted this one. Fortunately I possess MOD POWERS so was able to erase my mistake before anyone noticed. Sort of like when I got my girlfriend pregnant.

I am interested in this precisely to the extent that it expands the pool of available weird universes for Kingdom Hearts to play around with. Assuming they can keep from dumping another wet steaming load of emaciated adolescents with improbable hair into the mix instead.

#20 Posted by Deathmachine117 (377 posts) -

It looks interesting but as someone who hates Sarah Silverman and most Disney films I dont think its for me. But hey I am all for more video game related things to be mentioned in a positive light.

But usually when a film resorts on an annoying voice or repeating another characters sentence, its an ill omen.

#21 Posted by Foggen (837 posts) -

I can't get over how they're treating Zangief.

#22 Posted by Milkman (16535 posts) -

This looks amazing.

#23 Posted by Tennmuerti (8009 posts) -

Not bad.

I'm down for giving this a chance.

#24 Posted by JackSukeru (5906 posts) -

I can't not be on board for this, even if I have no idea if the actual movie will be fun from that trailer.

I'm such a sucker.

#25 Posted by BeachThunder (11709 posts) -

This really looks like it was created by people that haven't played a video game in decades - people that use 'Nintendo' as an umbrella term for any video game system, and believe that Call of Duty represents all modern games. The whole thing just reeks of awkward-videogame-crossover-fanfiction the movie; in fact, I'm almost certain they must have used something like this to come up with the idea.

Don't think so...just imagine the licensing nightmare it would create.

Looks great

Me neither- and I won't be surprised if that's something they just leave to interpretation. :P

Anyway, it looks ok- I'll probably see it at some point, as I do with most animated films that I become aware of. Q-bert's appearances and Clyde's reaction to Ralph's wish to become a good guy kind of stole the show for me in this trailer. :)

And this screenshot... Is absolutely adorable. ^_^

Well, Disney did put up a Flash version of Ralph's game here, but I don't think that's what you meant:

Well, he's a Russian. And i believe that SFII was launched in Cold War, sooooo...

Huh, well this actually looks good, not what I expected.

I don't agree but I am cautious to jump right in. I have no doubt that it'll be cute and adorable, but I feel like the kids it's trying to target will have no idea who these video game characters are. Maybe they're just there for the adults to have a connection to the film?

#34 Posted by Fozimuth (170 posts) -

Zangief is so misunderstood.

#35 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -

I would also like to notice that Zangief worked for Bison in some anime/comics.

#36 Posted by Coafi (1481 posts) -

It looks cool, I trust Pixar, I just wish that trailer didn't have that goddamn song that plays everywhere.

#37 Posted by Phatmac (5721 posts) -

I'd see this.

#38 Posted by Getz (2989 posts) -

How much are they paying in royalties for all those licensed characters?

#39 Posted by MocBucket62 (1158 posts) -
@Coafi: This isn't Pixar, its Disney Animation. Pixar wouldn't stoop down to play that garbage in their trailers unlike Disney or Dreamworks. As for the film, I want November to come now!!!
#40 Posted by Coafi (1481 posts) -

@MocBucket62: I totally thought it was Pixar, my mind always goes pixar=disney. But, you are right, Pixar does have more class.

#41 Posted by Nottle (1912 posts) -

So where does MVC 2 fit into this. That is a bunch of character jumping into different games.

#42 Posted by RTSlord (1199 posts) -

not gonna lie, i kinda want to see this movie now even though i hate sarah silverman and am not super fond of john c reilly, the movie and subject matter seem pretty interesting

#43 Posted by Begilerath (175 posts) -

Videogames!, Animation!, Jane Lynch!, Once in a Lifetime by Talking Heads! ....I'm In

Yeah, but all he wanted to do was win the tournament and dance with Gorbachev. Nothing sinister.

Seconded.

It's very cool that gaming culture is getting this kind of exposure, but NITPICK TIME: How come the titular game looks 8-bit, but they have recorded voice effects? Also, modern shooters usually don't have score numbers flash across the screen when you kill an enemy. Also, I fucking hate the songs in this trailer, especially the Flo Rida Levels cover.

#46 Posted by GreggD (4478 posts) -

Man, everybody's reaction to this is way more positive than when Scott Pilgrim was out. I'm looking forward to this, but wtf.

Tell me more about this steaming wet load of adolescents.

#49 Posted by ZombiePie (5587 posts) -

Hopefully this movie means I wont have the horribly disappointing of having to explain what an "arcade" is to young kids who say they like playing video games.  
Also I'm happy to see they used The Talking Head's Once in a Lifetime.

I really didn't expect all the official character cameos. Neat stuff.
