One of my favorite documentaries from a few years back is The King of Kong, which followed gamers Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe, battling it out to see who would be the ultimate winner of the arcade game, Donkey Kong.
Now they’re battling it out again, only this time playing Fix-It Felix Jr., the arcade game featured in the Disney movie Wreck-It Ralph, in theaters this Friday.
About the Movie: For decades, Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.
On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day — but can he do it in time?
Rated PG, Wreck-It Ralph crashes onto the big screen on Nov. 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
