Wreck-It Ralph is an obsolete video game character who longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix. When a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-asnails Sergeant Calhoun, Ralph sneaks into the game with the hopes of winning a medal and proving his heroism. Unfortunately, he wrecks everything, accidentally unleashing a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Next Dive-In- Movies: July 19th: The Avengers (PG-13) and August 16th (TBA)
