Annapurna Pictures has released a new trailer for writer-director Barry Jenkins' new film If Beale Street Could Talk, an adaptation of James Baldwin's 1974 novel, the first English-language feature film based on the work of the author, to whom the movie is dedicated. The actual trailer, the third since February, is embedded below, but I chose to "rickroll" you all in advance since the latest preview of Walt Disney Animation Studios' latest is going to do the same exact thing to you.

In Ralph Breaks the Internet, Ralph and his best friend Vanellope von Schweetz are together again for another fantastic adventure. In speaking with LRM's own Gig Patta, Ralph Breaks the Internet story artist, Natalie Nourigat explains how the idea of Ralph wrecking, or rather breaking the internet came about. Fearing that Sugar Rush could get shut down for good, Ralph (John C. Reilly) suggests they go to the internet to get a new steering wheel.

Just as Zootopia dealt with racism without pretending to "fix" racism, Ralph will take on the hostility of the internet from the perspective of one befuddled video game villain.

This is when Ralph and Vanellope come up with their grand idea. Some people and places inside the Internet are friendly, but others only appear that way. As we see in the trailer, Vanellope starts to ask big questions about what she wants out of her life, and Ralph fears losing his best friend to this intense new racing world.

Footage taken by local Giannis Giannakopoulos shows the web completely cloaking trees, bushes and shrubberies near a lagoon. According to Chatzaki, residents and tourists should not worry about the webs for long, the spiders will die soon.

To the filmmakers, Ralph's introduction to the internet was an obvious next step in his emotional arc across both films.

Fortunately for him, help is at hand in the form of Yesss (Taraji P. Henson), a smart, stylish algorithm that runs video sharing site Buzzz Tube.

Don't let the bright colors and peppy music fool you: Ralph Breaks the Internet knows damn well the the world wide web isn't all "roses and sunshine", as co-director Phil Johnston puts it.
