We can all agree that the fans of Adult Swim‘s Rick and Morty have suffered from a righteous drought of new content for some time now. Let’s face it: mini-clips, music videos, and late-night bumpers can only get you so far. But since the announcement was made at WarnerMedia’s 2019 May Upfronts that Dan Harmon […]
In the interest of full disclosure – and if my memory’s a little off, cut me some slack – but I’m not sure if I’ve ever written an article specifically about CBS All Access‘ legal drama The Good Fight. Nothing against it personally or professionally – just one of those shows that never made much […]
Wreck it Ralph surprised a lot of people when it was released in 2012. Sure it was full of references and cameos from familiar video game characters, but that is not all the film was. There was genuine heart and a great message of friendship at the core of that film, and both Sarah Silverman […]
Welcome Back to BC’s Late-Night Rewind! Buckle up, Late Night fans: we’re delivering another action-packed “Top Ten” list of the creamiest of the crop from this past week.

Though there’s still some time before Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 logs on to theaters screens across the country and around the planet on November 21st, Walt Disney Studios is using every second they have to remind fans of Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and Vanellope’s (voice of Sarah Silverman) return to […]
Netflix went double-dipping on Thursday with two announcement videos: one for an all-star charity event; and the other, for a highly-anticipated YA thriller adaptation. First up, the streaming service announced the lineup for Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity comedy special, taping Saturday at the Hollywood Palladium for an April airing; and we also have a date […]
We’ve known that Wreck-It Ralph, the 2012 Disney animated film about a video game villain who learns how to be a hero, will be getting a sequel on March 9, 2018, and we’ve also heard rumors that this sequel will see Ralph leave the video arcade for the wide open internet in the form of […]
Roxxon are the big bad guys in Marvel now. In Agent Carter, they are dangerous weapons developers and smugglers, and in the comics, big bad oil company, polluters run by a secret minotaur, lacking in morals, the epitome of the 1%, capitalist scum the first against the wall when the revolution comes. They can’t even […]
What type of person gets fired from a TV show he created? That seems to be the question that the new film Harmontown is trying to answer. This clip shows Dan Harmon from the time he was fired off the show Community in 2012 to the point where he was hired back in 2013. The documentary […]
Sarah Silverman's pilot, Susan 313, never made it to air but the studio who produced it, 20th Century Fox, have agreed for it to be on YouTube for anyone to watch.
Another movie star heads for TV, Tomorrowland rounds out its cast at long last and Willem Defoe is headed back to the tank in today's roundup.
On the politics, or lack thereof, of Wreck-It Ralph.
I’m still working on a nice little Wreck-It Ralph story for you. Sorry for the delay. In the meantime, here’s a new trailer cut for the UK – which appears to mean the UK like a little more story line, a few less video game cameos in their trailers. Definitely not cut for the UK […]
The beginning of this promo for Wreck-It Ralph is lifted from the beginning of the movie, and shows a lot of Fix It Felix gameplay. Later, though, we get what amounts to snippets of Sugar Rush and Hero’s Duty gameplay shots, revealing how those games play. And there is, of course, a generous handful of […]
Wreck-It Ralph is going to do for video games what Toy Story did for toys. That’s what everybody‘s saying. Including me. Over and over again. Earlier, we had a great, very high-quality and detailed image stuffed to the gills with video game in-jokes. Now, three more pictures that USA Today have used to explain a […]
There are multiple video game worlds in the next Disney toon, Wreck-It Ralph, from a Halo-esque alien landscape, to the colourful landscape made of candy that forms the playing field of the Mario Kart-inspired Sugar Rush. And then there’s the sad, lonely apartment block where Wreck-It Ralph plays the role of destructive villain, smashing windows […]
Sarah Polley‘s sophomore directorial outing is Take This Waltz, a film which came out of its TIFF premiere in the Autumn with a pretty decent set of reviews. Many of the plaudits went to the cast, but there was also a lot of praise for how Polley’s screenplay and filmmaking managed to ramp up some […]
Disney’s next feature length toon is Wreck-It Ralph, a video game mash-up. The title character plays a somewhat Donkey Kong-ish role in his own game, but he’s not too happy with that life, and would like to hop over to something more his style. Much game-to-game hopping ensues – presumably with attendant hilarity, adventure and, […]
Here are some more pictures from the floor of D23, this time delivering a good, clear look at the characters of Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph. In the first case, here are full-CG renders of the supporting cast members Fix-It Felix and Vanellope von Schweetz, voiced by Jack McBrayer and Sarah Silverman respectively. And then a shot […]
UPDATE: I’ve now put a good quality version of the logo at the head of the story. As the D23 expo goes on, we’ll be seeing and hearing a whole lot more about Wreck-It Ralph, formerly Reboot Ralph, even more formerly Joe Jump. This ambitious, and aesthetically unusual toon is Disney’s big CG release for […]
