Lots of gamers threw their goodwill towards the various stunts and trailers that Disney spooled out for Wreck-It Ralph, even if they made fun of modern-day games.


All the hype paid off, with the Disney Animation film pulling in $49.1 million over the weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. That makes it the highest grossing film ever released by that division of the mega-corporation. One thing to note is that Ralph isn't a movie based on a game, like the Tomb Raider or Resident Evil movies. It's one that's about the medium and the love it engenders. That just might be the secret of its success.
