Ralph and Vanellope delighted both critics and UK audiences this weekend, grossing £4m and smashing their way to the top of the UK box office charts.
This result follows last week’s strong US Thanksgiving opening, where over the 5-day weekend Ralph Breaks the Internet grossed an impressive $84.5M. To date, the film has already grossed $207M at the global box office, holding on to the #1 spot in the US for its second consecutive weekend.
“Great fun” – Brian Viner, Daily Mail
“Big-hearted” – Ed Potton, The Times
“One of the years best films” – Scott Davies, HeyUGuys
“A giddy, sugar-coated joy from start to finish” – Phil De Semlyen, Time Out
Lee Jury, Head of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures UK & Ireland commented “It’s wonderful that UK audiences have taken Ralph and Vanellope back to their hearts and to the top of the UK box office. The brilliant team of film-makers that brought the film back to the big screen smashed it on both sides of the Atlantic with number one openings (in the US and UK) and we look forward to audiences enjoying the film as we head towards Christmas."
In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had. Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” writer, “Cedar Rapids”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet” is in cinemas now.
