Wreck It Ralph Scores Big!

November 6th, 2012

Hello Disney lovers. The big news over this past weekend was the huge success of Disney’s new movie Wreck It Ralph. The movie came in at #1 in the box office with a revenue of $49.1 million. The movie is about Ralph, a video game character, who wants to be a nice person after a lifetime of being a mean video game character. I think the fact that this movie revolves around video games really appealed to the younger generation. This element I feel really drove up the ticket sales, thus making Wreck It Ralph the #1 movie in America. For Disney, this is a huge lift after the very disappointing performance of Frankenweenie in the box office. When Frankenweenie was released, it had an opening weekend release of 5th place and only grossed $11 million. I for one am not surprised by the fact that Frankenweenie did not do as well as Wreck It Ralph. When you look at Frankenweenie, all the elements of the movie were very dark and somewhat disturbing in my view. Now I realize that type of animation is what Tim Burton is known for. However, I feel that there is a distinct difference between what one director’s vision is and what appeals to the general population, especially children. From what I’ve seen with Wreck It Ralph though, that movie is very lively as far as visuals are concerned. This visual advantage obviously was a smash hit for children and adults alike. How do you feel? Do you feel that the visuals of Wreck It Ralph aided in the high box office sales? Why or why not? Have you seen Wreck It Ralph in theaters yet? If so, what did you think of it? Please post your comments below or E-mail us at with your thoughts. For now though, as always, have a magical day!
