Disney's Wreck-It Ralph Is 8-Bits Of Nostalgic Fun!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

Oh, Disney. As long as we pretend John Carter never happened, you never disappoint!

Wreck-It Ralph, voiced by John C. Reilly, is a marginalized video-game baddie for the '80s who never asked to antagonize anyone!

Ch-ch-check out the latest trailer for the promising animated flick (above) as Ralph trudges through new video game landscapes and interacts with iconic characters from other video games!

Is Ralph at an A.A. meeting with Bowser from Super Mario Bros??

It makes perfect sense!

Anyone who spits out fire so regularly must have tons of booze on the breath, LOLz!!

Curiosity Killed The Cat… And Then It Conquered Time And Space To Land On Mars

Filed under: Etc.Inspiration

For those of you who requiring an extra bit of encouragement this week, we invite you to watch the Curiosity rover land on Mars.

Its nine month, 352 million mile journey from our planet to the next culminated in an unpredictable seven minute landing sequence that turned out to be more thrilling than just about any fiction we can remember.

Curiosity is a manmade mobile science lab designed to travel to Mars, land without smashing into a trillion pieces, keep a keen robotic eye out for signs of past or present life, and then report back it's findings.

Watch the animated simulation of its landing cut with reaction shots of scientists and engineers watching the live drama unfold (above).

These men and women spent the better part of their careers constructing a marvelous piece of machinery but, on this day, they could do nothing but hope and pray.

We won't trivialize this momentous achievement with John Carter jokes or an ill-suited hyperbole. The video speaks for itself.

On some days, it's just inspiring to be part of the human race.

YES! Our prayers have been answered! We're headed back to 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney!!

We knew if we just kept swimming … crap, now we're swimming in tears of joy!!!

We've been waiting SO long for this news, and now that's it here, it's better than anything we could have anticipated!

Andrew Stanton, the man behind the Toy Story series, Monsters, Inc., and Wall-E, has been selected by Disney and Pixar to direct the much-anticipated SEQUEL for his possibly best-known work, Finding Nemo!

According to industry insiders, despite the writer/director's epic flop with his debut live-action feature, John Carter, Andrew was able to present the studio with a concept for the second installment that was EXTREMELY well-received - so much so, in fact, that if all goes well with this, he'll get another shot at helming live-action!

Unfortunately, no word yet on

Dark Knight Rises Passes 100k Tickets Sold With Weeks Left Before Release

Dark Knight Rises Poster Catwoman The Avengers

At this rate, The Dark Knight Rises might outgross John Carter before opening night, LOLz!!

The pre-sale numbers for Christopher Nolan's next and — supposedly — last Batman film are a clear bat-signal of success on the horizon!

The demand is soooo ridiculously high that IMAX screens across the country are even selling out $40 triple features that start with Batman Begins, continue with Heath Ledger's Dark Knight, and finish with a midnight premiere of TDKR!!

In our professional opinion, this has less to do with

Disney Earns Some John Carter Money Back!

john-carter-makes-disney-some-money.jpg

Walt Disney Studios' John Carter, which flopped harder than a kid full-sprint jumping onto a dry Slip n' Slide, actually sits in the top slot for home video sales.

The movie lost well over $100 million in theaters, and what's worse is that Disney wanted it to become their next big franchise, spanning sequels, toys, video games and theme park rides.

It seems that while it might have at first been written off, the average home video viewer wanted to give it a chance… and it must've been good enough to deserve a recommendation to friends.

It sold the most Blu-rays and the most overall discs, beating out

The Avengers Pull John Carter To Safety!

Carter Piggy

We didn't see this coming!

Do you remember that little $200 million flop that Disney put out earlier this year called John Carter??

Well, it was sitting not-so-pretty at #38 on the box office charts before The Avengers came out… and now it's at #12!

How did that happen??

Drive-ins! 150 of them!

It's true, Carter has been
