Ralph's Weekend Predictions

This weekend brings wide release of Disney's latest animated feature, Wreck-It Ralph. The internets are all a-buzz with positive speculation as to how it will fare:
LA Times:
This weekend, the animated movie "Wreck-It Ralph" is expected to wreak havoc on the box office. The Disney film is projected to make between $45 million and $50 million.

IGN Movie Review:
Wreck-It Ralph is not only the best animated film of the year, it's the best video game movie ever made. Filled with wit, heart and nods to games ranging from Q*Bert to Gears of War, it is a movie for gamers by gamers, but the story and execution are so brilliant you don't need to be a game fan to enjoy it.

MTV Review:
'Wreck-It Ralph' Readies To Rough Up Box Office! Disney's videogame flick is expected to clobber fellow newbies 'Man With the Iron Fists' and 'Flight.'

Rotten Tomatoes currently has it 85% Fresh

The Wrap collects multiple positive critiques.

As the MTV article pointed out, even in the Sandy-Ravaged east cost predictions are that cineplexes will be quickly made ready for people to try to forget their woes through the magic of movies. Even still, another Wrap article puts the opening weekend prediction at $50 Million for the film.

We wish the film great success through its run. We also send our best wishes to those on the east cost whose lives have been effected by Sandy and hope they find their lives quickly returned back to normal.
