About Wreck-It Ralph: "Wreck-It Ralph" takes moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in which Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly)—tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (Jack McBrayer), the "good guy" star of their game—sets off on a quest to prove he's got what it takes to be a hero. Also featuring the voices of Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman, "Wreck-It Ralph" is in theaters Nov. 2, 2012.
