Wreck-It Ralph easily claimed the top spot on the Top 10 List with an estimated $49.1 million. That’s the highest opening weekend ever for a Disney Animation movie and it’s no wonder, this movie looks great! The movies’ retro look and story line are appealing to adults who grew up in arcades and they are taking their kids to see it who also appear to be thoroughly enjoying the movie.
