WRECK-IT RALPH Box Office: Weekend's No. 1 Movie by Far?

Wreck-It Ralph John C. ReillyDisney's Wreck-It Ralph, a potential Best Animated Feature Academy Award nominee, will easily top the North American box office this weekend, Nov. 2-4. Wreck-It Ralph is expected to collect somewhere around $50m at 3,752 locations after taking in an estimated (3D-boosted) $13.5 million on Friday according to early, rough estimates found at Deadline.com.

Directed by Rich Moore, Wreck-It Ralph features the voices of Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch, John C. Reilly, Alan Tudyk, and Ed O'Neill.

Flight has solid opening

At no. 2 for the weekend, the Denzel Washington vehicle Flight is expected to collect $23 million at 1,900 locations, after bringing in an estimated $8 million on Friday. If so, that'll be a solid opening for the R-rated Flight: approximately $12,000 per theater. The Robert Zemeckis-directed psychological drama reportedly cost $45m. Also in the Flight cast: Melissa Leo, Bruce Greenwood, Brian Geraghty, Kelly Reilly, Don Cheadle, and John Goodman.

The Man with the Iron Fists bombs

Ben Affleck's Argo is expected to be the no. 3 movie for the weekend, with around $9m. Right behind it should be RZA's The Man with the Iron Fists, featuring Cung Le, Rick Yune, Russell Crowe, and Lucy Liu, and the weekend's box office bomb with $8.5 million at 1,868 runs. Though made for only $15 million, The Man with the Iron Fists will likely have trouble matching — let alone recovering — its quite modest budget at the domestic box office. International prospects look slim at best.

Remember, those are early, rough, unofficial figures. Official Friday box office estimates come out Saturday morning. The distributors' weekend estimates will be made available on Sunday.
