‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Trailer – What’s the Song?
Entertainment powerhouse Disney has another 3D animated film in the works called ‘Wreck-It Ralph.’ Surprisingly, the first trailer for the new movie features a song that’s 30 years old.
‘Wreck-It Ralph’ is about a video game character of the same name who plays the bad guy in the arcade title ‘Fix It Felix Jr.’ After doing the same job for 30 years, Ralph decides to escape the game and become a hero in another digital world. The trailer features plenty of funny moments, including cameos from famous video game villains. The nerds in us appreciated appearances from ‘Street Fighter II’s M. Bison and Zangief, Clyde the Ghost from the ‘Pac-Man’ franchise, Bowser from ‘Super Mario Bros.’ and more.
The first half of the preview has the song ‘Once in a Lifetime’ from the Talking Heads playing in the background. Originally released in 1981 on their album ‘Remain In Light,’ the track wasn’t a big hit at the time. It failed to reach the Billboard 100 chart in the U.S., but the music video was a staple on the emerging MTV network. ‘Once in a Lifetime’ eventually received the recognition it deserved, being named one of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century according to National Public Radio. Unfortunately, this didn’t stop the Talking Heads from breaking up in 1991.
‘Wreck-It Ralph’ features the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch. The movie opens in movie theaters on November 2, 2012.
