After throughly enjoying Adult Swim alumnus Jim Tozzi's Psychocats parody trailers for Seven Psychopaths (which made me even more focused and productive in the office), I'm counting the minutes until some new-media smart-ass takes this fun Wreck-It Ralph clip and makes it funnier by splicing in some of Sarah Silverman and John C.

Video games have inspired many a movie in the post-Atari age, but Disney's CG-animated November adventure Wreck-It Ralph puts a spin on things: It follows an 8-bit villain named Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C.

As such, the early art work has been retro-tastic, and this week's new teaser poster is no different. Take a gander and get ready to explain to the iPhone-toting, Tweet-happy kiddies what "8-bit" means.
