John C. Reilly’s loveable villain in Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph helped the animated epic storm to the top of the U.S box office last week, as it generated $49.1 million in it’s opening weekend. Sure, Skyfall came and knocked the socks off the Pixar film, but it held it’s own with the number two spot in its second week.
