Los Angeles - Wreck-It Ralph, Disney's animated film about a video game character who destroys everything in his path, made history on Sunday after grossing $49.1m in ticket sales to lead the weekend box office - the highest-grossing opening weekend in Disney animation history.
The tally for Wreck-It-Ralph, which featured the voices of John C Reilly and Jane Lynch, hammered the Denzel Washington film Flight, which generated ticket sales of $25m at US and Canadian theatres, according to studio estimates.
The critically acclaimed Iran hostage thriller Argo, last week's box office leader, was third, generating $10.2m in sales. Directed by and starring Ben Affleck, Argo has totalled $75.9m in its three weeks in movie theatres.
