Wreck-it Ralph

Top 10

Find out what topped the charts this weekend!


Wreck-It Ralph

John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman packed a heavy punch this weekend with the debut of Wreck-It Ralph. The video-game world of friendship and a dream to break bad-guy roots earned Ralph this week’s top spot, with $49.1 million in box office sales.



Denzel Washington helped land a second-place spot for Flight, with a $25 million debut weekend. Washington plays a heroic pilot who manages to save the majority of his passengers in a crash landing, but when alcohol turns up in his sytem in the investigation thereafter, his stardom quickly shifts to public skepticism.



Argo maintained its role as a top contender, moving down a few spots this weekend but still earning a respectable $10.2 million.


The Man with the Iron Fists

Martial arts fought its way into the number-four spot with The Man with the Iron Fists. Russell Crowe, Jamie Chung and Lucy Liu star in the RZA/Quentin Tarantino production, earning $8.2 million in their opening weekend.


Taken 2

Taken 2 is still bringing in the bucks, earning $5.2 million this go around.

Cloud Atlas isn’t quite living up to the hype, only reeling in an embarrassing $5 million this weekend.


Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania lost its relevance at the box office after Halloween, plummeting from last week’s third-place spot to a low-priced seat in seventh place, with $4.5 million.


Paranormal Activity 4

It appears the same axe that hit Hotel Transylvania also chopped Paranormal Activity 4, as it also dropped off the contender list to number eight after the spooky-holiday season.


Here Comes the Boom

Here Comes the Boom is about ready to tap out, as Kevin James and crew only managed $3.6 million at the number-nine spot.


Silent Hill: Revelation 3D

Last place goes to the horror film Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, having only earned $3.3 million. Scary numbers for the scary film.
