Wreck-It Ralph Gets Good Box Office Numbers In Spite of Sandy


Wreck-It Ralph Gets Good Box Office Numbers In Spite of Sandy

With the East Coast still trying to recover from the destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy, it would have been understandable if Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph failed to garner favorable box office numbers during its first weekend. However, as a testament to both the movie’s quality and for people’s willingness to watch a quality film (contrary to what a lot of critics say about the state of cinema vs. home video), the video-game themed CG feature still managed to climb to the number 1 spot of the domestic box office with $49.1 million from 3,752 theaters. The pic also set the record for biggest non-holiday opening for a Disney Animation film.

Another animated movie, Sony’s Hotel Transylvania still shows a lot of life, staying at the no. 7 spot with another $4.5 million that brings its total cume to $137.5 million in just five weeks. The other contender for this week is Sony/MGM’s Skyfall, which managed to rake in another $156 million and brought its cume to $287 million during its first 10 days at the box office.
