Wreck-It Ralph 2 Official Trailer

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

Ok, I am gonna be frank, I like the first Wreck-It-Ralph for what it is, but I do NOT like the direction its sequel is going for.

What does this have to do with Video Games other than playing games on an appstore on your iPhone?

What does Ebay have to do with Wreck-It-Ralph and Video Games?

I remember reading the earlier development cycle of this movie and originally they wanted to tackle Console Gaming like the Nintendo vs SEGA days. I wanted that celebration of Early days of console gaming like The NES, Sega Genesis, Gameboy, etc.

Basically Instead of getting to see Mario and Sonic, I am gonna be seeing Angry Birds and Candy Crush... :(

Oh, kind of like the Emoji Movie then, including that sweet lucrative product placement. Still, some of the stuff in that trailer got a little chuckle out of me, so it's already a far superior movie.

So, basically it's the Emoji Movie, only it's given a free pass because...reasons?

It seems a bit better mind you, but, well, yeah...

I'm guessing they're just going to gloss over, if not completely ignore, the fact that they're abandoning their games even though that was a major plot point in the first movie.

No, I am not sold on this at all. The first movie was an interesting journey of self-discovery. I don't even know what the hell this is other than blatant corporate pandering.

I didn't care for the first Wreck-It-Ralph, but this just looks like Intenet Meme The Movie.

I'll probably like it when it comes out, but I can't see this being as good as the first one.

Going by the trailer, it looks like they enter the Internet by accident.

Come to think of it though, this premise, and how it's executed, seems like it would be better suited for Tron. Shame that franchise kinda died on us. :(

Regardless, them being outside their game when people go to play it was a big plot point in the first movie and I'm guessing it's going to be glossed over or ignored.

Considering the entire first movie took place over one evening and one day at the arcade... I think they could manage a night out at the Internet without being missing the next morning for their games if they really wanted to. Although getting "home" from the Internet would be a good problem for them to be trying to solve while they wander through the Internet's many offerings and get diverted and tangled up along the way.

I think it looks cute and funny and I am excited to watch it with my nieces and nephews.

I had a laugh at the pancake milkshake sketch, kind of like a version of Mr. Creosote for kids. I hope that isn't the best joke in the film. Now I did like the first Wreck-it-Ralph, but the rest of the trailer....eh, not entirely sure about it. Most of the jokes the showed off seem to be rather tired and not really funny.

Oooh, some of the faces look very Moana inspired, like that little girl in the car- I like that style.

If my son would like to see this, then so be it, otherwise... well, I usually pass on animated films.

...

Usually.

Still have yet to see the first, as everyone and their scarecrows keeps saying "but it has the cool stuff that you like tho!" And I say "eh, whatevs...I'll get round to it eventually, maybe." But then when I turn to look at who is talking, there is nobody there, and when I turn back, I find myself alone and naked in my darkened room. What the hell? Did I just imagine that every time, or was it a flashback? Is this even real? Where are my clothes? Do I even have any friends and acquaintances or are they all voices and daydreams conjured by the desperation of an isolated understimulated mind??

One thing is for sure however, I haven't got round to seeing the first film

Possible except for one tiny detail, in the trailer we see them interfering with that little girl's tablet game in the middle of the day.

I saw this yesterday and I'm just over here going "...PLEEAAAAASE don't suck..."

I mean, it seems to have competent writers and designers behind it, but nothing about it is making me sit up and pay attention, unlike the first movie. Maybe when we get some details about what the point of the plot is going to be... :s

It's kind of sad that I'm having the same "Please don't be terrible" emotion towards this as Ready Player One. I'm finding it veeerrry hard to have faith in either of those, but I really really want them to be at least decent. :(

Canadamus Prime:

Regardless, them being outside their game when people go to play it was a big plot point in the first movie and I'm guessing it's going to be glossed over or ignored.

I got the impression at the start of the trailer that the arcade is practically abandoned and that there's no one going there right now, so it's not like they have to worry about someone coming in to play their games.

If that's the case that only makes it worse because that would lead to the threat of them being shut down and unplugged which was also a plot point of the first movie. Also they're recycling jokes that were first done by Futurama in the late 90's.

I'm assuming the third act twist will involve "oh no, quick we need to upload the entire arcade to the internet to save everyone from the arcade shutting down", personally. A predictable and "safe" twist. Because there's no way they'd let all the characters get deleted by the arcade shutting down.

And not nearly as interesting a journey as the first movie.

Looks about as good as the first film.

Canadamus Prime:

I agree. Unless they show me some kind of interesting story angle like the first one did to catch my attention, I find it very hard to have any real hope for this movie. :(

Based on this trailer I cannot imagine what angle they could possibly approach this from that could make it even close to the first one. The first one had me hooked from the first trailer and not just because of the cameos from famous video game characters (although that helped). This trailer, in contrast, just has me groaning and rolling my eyes.

Well, the exploding bunny was funny. The first movie was really good and people seemed to loved Zootopia (I've only ever seen a meme of the rabbit holding a carrot and calling it a vibrator), so I'm willing to give this movie a shot. At the very least it's visually pleasing.

But why does the little girl sound like a middle-aged woman?

Oh, right...

Ehhhheehehehheehhhhh

Looks pretty shit but I'll give it a chance.

And that's when the sad realisation hits you. The era of pandering to nostalgic references is over, they are making actual children's movies for actual children. And all children know is repetitive ios popup laden crap-ware.

hahahah ....I got a good laugh from the last part

Samtemdo8:

Ok, I am gonna be frank

And I'm gonna be Gary. *rimshot*

Yeah! Get rid of the old! Welcome the new! OK, that's not true. They also know Hearthstone, FNM and lootboxes!

Seriously though, this means I'll have to watch the Emoji movie beforehand to compare it with this when it comes out. :P

What the hell is FNM?

Going into the internet has me reaaaally worried- because I still remember the last time a beloved animated character got a movie where they were thrust into the modern world via the internet...

It did not go down well.

Typo. It was FNAF.

I'm not particularly excited about this trailer but I only bought the first movie after seeing parts of it on department store televisions. After watching it I found myself enchanted enough to rewatch it several times.

I can see them going into the internet as a plot device because the "Arcade" theme was antiquated to begin with and they're limited in the number of ways they can continue the basic premise.

I do wonder how much time they'll spend in WoW or KOTOR type multiplayers and if one way old game characters will survive their games being shut down is by migrating en masse to the internet.

Then they can have Ralph and the others download themselves into people's XBone's etc.

Ready Player One gave me enough of that nonsense, thanks.

I wonder how much all the cameos that movie will have will actually have a major part in the movie?

Like is Iron Giant gonna be a full fledged character in the movie following the protaginist?

They kind of did that with the first movie, which was basically stuck in the Land of Candy Commercials for 8/10s of the time. No one listened to me then though. No one!

If it's like the book, probably not. There'll be lots of stuff from pop culture, but it won't mean anything, just be sensory overload at best, and obnoxious easter eggs at worst.

On the one hand, props for going in an unexpected direction. I'm okay with the film moving away from the arcade (after all, imagine if Toy Story 2 stayed in the same neighborhood) but doing a film about teh internets usually ends with some painfully dated jokes and memes. And what I saw in the trailer was really quite meh. The bunny sketch was pretty fun, but other than that, I didn't really see anything super funny. Unlike, say...


...that.
