Wreck-It Ralph Crushes Box Office

Disneys' Wreck-it Ralph easily took the top spot this weekend with $49.1 million.  Which is a record for Disney Animation Studios (this does not include Pixar movies) as the previous record holder was Tangled's $48.8 million.  Though, Wreck-It Ralph still has some ways to go to recoup it's $165 million budget. 

Robert Zemeckis' and Denzel Washington's up-in-the-air drama, Flight, managed a strong second place finish with $25 million, nearly matching it's $31 million budget in three days of release.

Argo held on strong for a third place finish, for $10.2 million.  It actually had the lowest percentage drop in the top 10.

Meanwhile, The Wachowski's and Twyker's highly expensive art house film, Cloud Atlas, is still struggling as it made just over $5 million and has a very long way to reach it's reported $102 million budget.  Here's hoping they have a strong overseas market.

And Meanwhile again, the next James Bond installment, Skyfall, has already made $287 million overseas since opening last weekend.
