One of the most anticipated films this year is Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 and hopefully the flick will feature the same passion for 8-bit gaming as the original. Wreck-It Ralph, which received an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination for Best Animated Feature, was released back in 2012 and it’s been a long timing for a sequel!
This time out video game antagonist (but with a heart of gold) Ralph (John C. Reilly) helps Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) navigate the perilous world wide web in search of a replacement to save Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush. The flick also features the voice talents of Taraji P. Henson, Kristen Bell, Alan Tudyk, andMandy Moore. Check out the teaser trailer and tell us what you think!
Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph opens nationwide November 21.
If you watch an episode of This Is Us, you know there’s a pretty good chance you’ll shed a tear or two at some point during the episode. That really doesn’t surprise Mandy Moore at all. What does surprise her is how often people tell her how one of her old movies — 2002’s A Walk To Remember — affected them emotionally. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mandy Moore)
This Is Us returns with new episodes Tuesday, February 27 at 9/8c on NBC.
Millions of people tune in to This Is Us each week because they’ve become emotionally invested in the Pearson family and their stories. Many of those viewers find themselves surprised or even shocked by some of the heart-wrenching plot twists, and one of them is Mandy Moore. Even though she’s one of the show’s stars, she still watches on Tuesday nights. And while she’s already seen the scripts and knows what’s coming, seeing her fellow cast members’ performances hits her just as profoundly as the average viewer.

Mandy Moore first entered the public eye in 1999, when her song Candy became a Top 40 hit. Since then, she’s diversified her career portfolio — not only has she had hit singles and toured the world as a music artist, but she’s become quite an accomplished actress as well. Nothing she’s done, however, has resonated with audiences the way This Is Us has. The NBC drama has been a critical hit and a cultural phenomenon, so it’s not surprising that Moore told us it’s the best job she’s ever had. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mandy Moore)
