Even with a good portion of the North East still struggling to return to a sense of normal, Wreck-It Ralph has stolen the top spot with extreme prejudice. If the reviews shared with us via our Twitter account are any indication, Ralph should enjoy a long run at the top of the list:

@ardaniel: @AnimGuild I laughed so hard and so often during Ralph that I came out light-headed. Absolutely a smart, funny film.

@thirdmonster: @ardaniel @AnimGuild It was the loudest/fastest clapping from my 4 yr old when credits rolled that the rest of the audience had to clap too.

Also noteworthy is the profitable performance of Sony's Hotel Transylvania. Six weeks in and with its international tally, has already past the "twice cost" mark.

It's always comforting to see animation tow the mark.
