Even though a part of America may be getting used to going to work with scuba gear, the box office returns this past weekend were pretty impressive.
With Wreck It Ralph arriving in time to attract gamers and children to cinemas, it easily one the number one crown, leaving a Kung Fu epic and a Robert Zemeckis film that used actual people to battle it out. Here’s who made what this past weekend at the ticket counter.
- Wreck-It Ralph – $49.1 Million
- Flight – $25 Million
- Argo – $10.2 Million
- The Man with the Iron Fists – $8.2 Million
- Taken 2 – $6 Million
- Cloud Atlas – $5.2 Million
- Hotel Transylvania – $4.5 Million
- Paranormal Activity 4 – $4.3 Million
- Here comes the boom – $3.6 Million
- Silent Hill: Revelation 3D – $3.3 Million
Rza’s love letter to Shaw brothers kung fu flicks didn’t exactly manage to use a secret technique to kick it’s way to box office glory, as The Man with the Iron Fists debuted in fourth place behind a strong Argo that slipped to third.
Wreck It Ralph managed to work some broad appeal magic, raking in enough cash to be the largest opening for a Disney film since Tangled, although it fell short behind the usual figures that Pixar films bring in, which are normally around the $60 million mark on debut.
Silent Hill: Revelation fell a massive five spots over the weekend, hanging on for dear life at the tenth spot, while a lazy-eyed Alex Cross dropped out of the top ten entirely, raking in only $2 million from the 13th spot.
