    Ok, you can move this to the movie thread, but check out the cameos and you'll see why I put it here :D 

    Wreck-It Ralph Trailer Hearts Games - Movies News at IGN

    For what it's worth, I came up with this idea back in 2001 when I worked for MS games. At least I get to see it come to life in some shape or form, :lol

    I believe there is a thread on this already

    EDIT: Oh, didn't see you already mentioned that...

    But still, this looks AWESOME. I'm still smiling at the thought of Bowser and Dr. Eggman/Robotnik in the same room. Come to think of it, this is kinda like the Super Robot Wars of video games...

    I wonder how many rights had to be paid for for this.

    I promise I won't turn this into a sob party, but holy shit, this is almost word for word my script. And I was amongst a shit load of film-guys. Hmmmmm. Mine ends with him meeting the Block from Pong (ala 2001 Monolith) and he discovers that every character derived from its pixels. I had started an animation where we see the block turn into a pixel which turns into MArio's shoulder, which becomes 16 bit, then polygnal.

    Let's see what happens this Fall.

    Nope. We had done some of the voices, problem was that it required animation that we couldn't do.

    There is a small difference. In mine, 2D characters live among 3D characters, and there was a certain level of discrimination between the 3Ds and the 2Ds. Those who could afford to go 3D would. The main character hangs out with Pitfall (2D). Buildings are built using Tetris Blocks (I bet they use that joke, I'd bet real money on it)

    We just talked about it a lot while we had down time, but we never submitted it. Just one of those things.

    Y'know, I'd be surprised if there isn't some kind of TRON reference at some point in the movie, like we see characters drive LightCycles or something.

    When I wrote it he was, :lol 

    In all seriousness, I wonder if we'll see Link and stuff. Like I hope that We get to see characters from all generations. I hope none of the game companies snub the movie. After all, it's free promotion.

    It would be amazing if the Team Fortress 2 classes showed up in this movie. But I kind of doubt it.

    I am hyped for this film. So many videogame characters in the same room. I hope we get to see some of the popular heroes as well.
