Wreck-It-Ralph Opened at #1!

Word has it that Wreck-It-Ralph opened #1 at the box office last weekend, to the sound of $49 million (the largest opening in Walt Disney Animation Studios history!).  That's amazing.  If you haven't seen it yet, will you be going?  I think we might take this one in over the weekend.  Below is a clip Disney sent of Owl City’s music video “When Can I See You Again?” which plays during the end credits of WRECK-IT RALPH:

From Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore comes “Wreck-It Ralph,” a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping adventure. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by Fix-It Felix, Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer), the good-guy star of their game who always gets to save the day. Tired of playing the role of a bad guy, Ralph takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a journey across the arcade through multiple generations of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, Ralph meets tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty, and feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush, who may just be his first real friend. But everything changes when a deadly enemy is unleashed, threatening the entire arcade and Vanellope herself. Ralph finally gets his chance to save the day—but can he do it in time? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

  1. I think we are pretty much done with the theater movies for the rest of the year, except for Legends of the Guardians. We will probably wait for Wreck It Ralph to come to dvd and rent it then. My girls just didn't seem to interested when I asked if they wanted to go. If you go, I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

    1. It does look like a boy movie. I like the movies geared towards the younger crowd because it gives me a fun thing to do w/little man when it's cold outside. :) As for me, I want to see Lincoln...I hope I don't miss it. I missed J. Edgar and have yet to see it!!
