'Wreck it Ralph' rules box office

The weekend box office was not only undeterred by the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, it was buoyed, as Disney's "Wreck it Ralph" opened strongly with $49.1 million.

The animated family film was aided by the large number of East Coast children out of school on Friday and families looking for a diversion. It's the largest box-office opening ever for a Disney Animations release.

Robert Zemeckis' "Flight," starring Denzel Washington, also opened to robust ticket sales. The Paramount drama took in $25 million despite playing in only 1,884 theatres, or about half the number "Wreck it Ralph" played in.

The Universal kung fu film "The Man With the Iron Fists" opened with a debut of $8.2 million.
