BOX OFFICE: WRECK-IT RALPH Looks Set To Smash Its Way To #1 In North America
Disney's Wreck-It Ralph will take the #1 spot at the North American box office this weekend, holding off competition from some other big releases and kicking off what is sure to be a good run for the highly anticipated animated feature.
Very early estimates are in for this weekend at the North American box office, and it's Disney's Wreck-It Ralph which looks set to dominate as it heads into 3,752 theaters. According to Deadline, the film is currently accounting for 20% of online ticket sales, and based on Friday matinee trends, the animated feature should open to $14 million today and $51 million for the weekend. "I think they’re going to get enough teens to supplement the family audience and pop a real number," a rival studio exec told the site. With less than 100 movie theaters on the East Coast closed due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, it should be business as usual this weekend at the box office. Stay tuned for further updates.
Ralph is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, the "good guy" star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he's tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he's got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun from the first-person action game Hero's Duty. But it's the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it's too late?ers.
