Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph has been praised by gamers and non-gamers alike for its loving tribute to gaming’s 8-bit days. While the film is still enjoying a very successful theatrical run, Disney has announced that it’ll be available as a digital download and on Blu-ray and DVD soon.
In a first for the company, Wreck-It Ralph will be available to download digitally more than a month before it’s Blu-ray/DVD counterpart. If downloading movies from iTunes or Amazon Video is your thing, you’ll be able to own Wreck-It Ralph on February 12.
However, if you’d prefer to wait for the Blu-ray/DVD, it’ll be released on March 5 in three different packages:
- Ultimate Collector’s Edition ($49.99): Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Copy + Special Features
- Collector’s Edition ($39.99): Blu-ray, DVD + Special Features
- DVD Edition ($29.99): DVD + Special Features
Each version of the film will come packed with a variety of special features, including the Paperman short film that played before Wreck-It Ralph in theaters. You can read up on all the special features after the break. (more…)
Rumor has it that Guillermo Del Toro’s Insane is back in production at some mystery game developer. And with the release of the first trailer for next year’s Pacific Rim film, it looks like the famed director will be battling a lot of Lovecraftian monsters in 2013.
In Pacific Rim, skyscraper-sized aliens have emerged from a portal underneath the Pacific Ocean and its up to Idris Elba and his team of Jaeger pilots to stop them. Anime fans will recognize the Jaegers as being very similar to the 25-foot tall mechas that are very popular in Japanese cinema and television. Be sure to check out the trailer above where Elba gives a rousing speech that rivals Bill Pullman’s at the end of Independence Day and listen close for the voicework of Ellen McClain (AKA GLaDOS from the Portal series) as the voice of the AI that manages the mechas.
Pacific Rim will be open in theaters on June 12, 2013.
Ernest Cline’s 2011 novel, Ready Player One, was a massive gift to nerds everywhere (especially ones who came of age in the 80s). And it sounds like he’s gearing up to do it again with his next novel, Armada. The book has been described by publisher Crown as “The ultimate wish fulfillment to every video game fan on the planet.”
Universal was so impressed by Cline’s 20-page proposal that they’ve already purchased the film rights to Armada… even though the world only found out about it yesterday! The movie will be produced by Scott Stuber’s Bluegrass Films and Dan Farah’s Farah Films. Farah is also hard at work producing the Ready Player One film adaptation.
Obviously, it is much too early to discuss anything about Armada, book or film. But hopefully we’ll learn more soon.
Warner Bros., Machinima, director Kevin Tancharoen, and NetherRealm Studios have announced that the second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy will debut on Machinima’s YouTube channel next Spring.
Tancharoen wants to make “Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2” bigger in every way and has recruited some interesting new actors to take on some of Mortal Kombat‘s most iconic characters. Casper Van Dien (of Starship Troopers fame) will take over the role of Johnny Cage while Mark Dacascos (from Double Dragon) will wear the razor-rimmed hat of Kung Lao. Best of all, Cary Tagawa will reprise his role from the first Mortal Kombat movie as Shang Tsung. Other additions to the cast for Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 include Brian Tee as Liu Kang and Harry Shum, Jr. as the original character Kuai Liang. Kuai Liang is the canon name of Sub-Zero’s younger brother, but the name will belong to a “warlord advisor” in the webseries sequel.
Ian Anthony Dale has been asked to play Scorpion once again. He’ll be joined by the unnamed actors and actresses who will bring life to Ermac, Mileena, Kitana, Kenshi, and Stryker in season two. Stryker was famously played by Battlestar Galactica alum Tahmoh Penikett in season one, but it’s currently unknown if he’ll return for another round.
The first clip from Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 will premiere during the Streamy Awards, which will be held on February 17.
The fifth, and final, episode of the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn webseries is here. All that’s left is to watch as Lasky and the Master Chief go toe-to-toe with the Covenant. Will they make it out alive? Since Forward Unto Dawn is a prequel, that’s a big yes. But it’s still fun to watch.
If you missed any part of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, head over to our hub page for the webseries and catch up on the previous episodes. And don’t forget, Halo 4 launches for the Xbox 360 on November 6.
If you’re anything like me, you were smitten with Wreck-It Ralph when you saw its trailer for the first time. A Disney movie about a fictional video game, featuring characters from beloved games of our youth, made in an adorable style, with an amazing cast of voices? It was like a dream come true. Each additional trailer and a fantastic series of posters hyped me up more and more, and gave me butterflies in my stomach. And, as I found out in a special early screening of the movie, gaming has gone so mainstream that gamers are in for an awesome treat with Wreck-It Ralph. (more…)
The fourth episode of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn has arrived and the Master Chief has come with it. It may not be a Halo movie, but the super soldier also known as John-117 has certainly been making the live action rounds over the last two weeks. Here’s where we’re at this week:
While Corbulo Academy is being destroyed by the Covenant invasion, the surviving cadets fight bravely alongside their only hope: The Master Chief.
And don’t forget, next Friday, November 2, marks the conclusion of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, four days ahead of Halo 4‘s launch on the Xbox 360.
It’s a fine Friday morning and that means one thing, a new episode of the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn webseries is available for your viewing pleasure. It makes a nice companion to the David Fincher-produced/Tim Miller-directed Halo 4 live-action trailer that went live late last night.
So what’s in store for Part 3? How about the continuing adventures of Hastati Squad…
Just as Hastati Squad is confronted by a video of secret ONI super-soldiers, their war and their whole universe are changed forever by a much more deadly surprise.
The fourth part of the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn webseries will be available next Friday, October 26.
