If you ventured to out to the movies this weekend, more than likely you saw the new Disney pic, Wreck-It Ralph. Perhaps we all we needed to laugh a little bit after Hurricane Sandy and Disney’s video game movie delivered in spades. Wreck-It Ralph dominated the weekend box office with 49 million, making twice what Robert Zemeckis’ Flight drew. However, Flight has almost made its budget back, proving it was the more successful of the two films. At least this weekend.  

Cloud Atlas seems to be hanging in there, but, with mixed reviews, it’s beginning to fall. Our own Rob Vaux gave it an F (see review). I have yet to see the film, but it has already earned a place in the John Carter/ Prometheus debate. Ben Affleck’s Argo has dropped to number three, but as the Oscar race begins, expect to see Argo resurface.
