Disney's Wreck-It Ralph maintains its momentum at the UK box office as half-term gave a lift to children's films

The winner

It lost the best animated feature Oscar to Disney stablemate Brave, but Wreck-It Ralph scored a victory at the UK weekend box-office. Takings for the film were almost the same as the previous weekend (£3.42m v £3.44m), as families slotted in a cinema visit before the end of school half-term. Over the 10 days of the school holiday (15-24 February), the video-game-themed adventure grossed an impressive £11.54m, for a total so far of £18.62m. Audiences will decrease now children are back at school, but Wreck-It Ralph should bump along for a few more weeks and is well placed to overtake the totals for 2012's Madagascar 3 (£22.74m) and Brave (£22.17m).

Wreck-It Ralph returns to the top spot after a weekend when preview takings had boosted the opening of A Good Day to Die Hard, »
