Check Out Ralph Breaking The Internet In New Poster For ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’

Back in 2012, the world fell in love with the arcade-game character Wreck-It Ralph. The animated Disney film was a hit with people of all ages and made over $400 million at the box office.

Fast forward six years later, and Disney is set to release the sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2John C. Reilly returns to voice Ralph, who finds himself venturing into cyberspace with a character named Vanellope von Schweetz in hopes of saving her game, Sugar Rush.

And as you might expect, things don’t go as planned.



Entertainment Weekly gives us a few more details on this sequel…

“The Wreck-It Ralph sequel will not only introduce new characters — like Taraji P. Henson as a trend-tracking algorithm named Yesss — but it’ll also see classic Disney characters mixing and mingling, from Iron Man and C-3PO to just about every Disney princess you can think of (Ariel, Anna, Elsa, Mulan, Pocahontas, Moana, Rapunzel, Belle, Tiana, Jasmine, and Merida).”

It’s scheduled to hit theaters November 21, 2018.

Reunited And It Feels So Good: Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly Teaming Up Again In Sherlock Holmes Comedy ‘Holmes & Watson’

Something magical happens when John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell make movies together. Ferrell is like a Ritz Cracker, and Reilly is like that Easy Cheese stuff that comes in a can. You feel a little disgusted with yourself after eating them, but you always go back for more when you need a little pick-me-up.

After having success with Talladega Nights and Step Brothers, Team Willy will hit the big screen again in Holmes & Watson. Etan Cohen will be directing the film, which was inspired by the Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tale. Ferrell will be playing Holmes and Reilly is taking on the role of his trusty sidekick, Watson.

Sony Pictures had previously greenlit this project with Sacha Baron Cohen set to star with Ferrell, but it hit a bump in the road when Sacha dropped out. A few weeks later, the film was repackaged with Reilly and when scheduling slots for all parties cleared, Sony went all in.

Production is scheduled to start after Thanksgiving. According to the reports, they want to shoot and release this movie as soon as possible, most likely because there are so many other Sherlock Holmes projects in production.

You got Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes film series, the CBS series Elementary, and the British-American Sherlock tv series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

We’ll see if Ferrell and Reilly can figure out a way to put a fresh spin on something we’ve already seen several times before. No release date has been announced, but we’ll keep you posted.


Movie Review: Tale of Tales – An Enjoyable Movie with a Compelling Cast

hero_Tale-of-Tales-2016 - 04MAY2016

What a strange, but strangely good movie. That’s probably what you’ll think if you get a chance to see Tale of Tales, a genre blending movie with an all-star cast.

Tale of Tales is presented as three fables woven together through common themes of female desire and the ironic consequences of those desires. In the first, Salma Hayek plays a queen unable to bear a child. Crushed, she turns to a court mystic who tells her that the only way to become pregnant is for her husband, the king (John C. Reilly) to slay a giant sea beast and devour its still-beating heart. Next up is Toby Jones as a slightly daffy monarch who raises a tiny flea as a pet, feeding it his own blood until it grows into the size of a hippo. Meanwhile, his beautiful daughter yearns to be wed and finds herself paired off with a ghastly ogre. In the last, Vincent Cassel plays yet another royal whose unquenchable libido leads him to fall in love (or, at least in lust) with a wrinkled crone whose singing voice enchants him.

This is an utterly charming movie with some decent talent holding it together. It has a near whimsical air, despite the fact that its subject matter is decidedly adult. It’s almost the stuff of folklore, and in a way, made me thing of Arabian Nights, which is one of my favorites.

I will say that’s one thing it was missing was the cohesive feel that Arabian Nights had. Despite the fact that the stories had nothing to do with each other, they all tied together. They didn’t do that with these vignettes and as a result, lost something. Sure, they all paired together a broken king with an overbearing woman, but for the most part, they didn’t feel cohesive.

Some of the scenes go a bit too far with the ‘be careful what you wish for’ and I wish they’d tried to go with a more unique direction in the underlying theme. But overall, I’d call this movie a fair B effort. They went a long way two create a classic, yet colorful set and it looks like what it’s supposed to be; a twisted fairy tale.

One thing I didn’t like was the intro to each tale starting with a funeral. Again, this was an attempt at cohesiveness that really didn’t tie the stories together, so much as they made them force in the intro in often clunky ways. That was a clumsy effort.

Once the stories get going, the magic happens, though not in equal levels. The problem is that at each peak, we’re switched back to a new story, making us forget what’s going on in one vignette and get drawn in to another.

But for the most part, it’s still an enjoyable movie with a compelling cast. Of course, this is not for kids, as there’s more than a few lewd and outright upsetting moments. But for adults, it has a quirky charm that you’re not going to find in standard movie fare.

It’s Official: John C. Reilly Confirms There Will Be A ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’


Last year, Wreck-It Ralph’s composer Henry Jackman revealed that Disney was trying to develop a sequel to the Oscar-nominated film. At the time, it was still in the early stages of development, and we all know how things can get off track.

But now it looks like a sequel will definitely happen. Actor John C. Reilly, the voice behind the main character in the movie, confirmed that he has signed on for Wreck-It Ralph 2. He made the announcement at the Galway Film Fleadh.

The Irish Independent was the first to break the exciting news. Sending out the tweet you see below…


Of course, this news shouldn’t surprise anyone. We know director Rich Moore was dying to make a sequel. Telling The Huffington Post back in 2013 that he had a wonderful time making the first one…

“I know everyone here had a good time making the film. I’ve talked with John [C. Reilly] and Sarah [Silverman] and we would all love to visit that world again and work with those characters again. We would jump at the opportunity. We’re all crossing our fingers about as far as you can cross them that we get a chance to do that.”

They can all give their fingers a break. It’s going to happen, and if it’s anything like the first one, it’s going to be a huge success. The first movie took home almost $500 million total at the box office.
