John C. Reilly's animated Disney movie Wreck-It Ralph has blown away the new Die Hard film to reclaim the top spot at the U.K. box office in its third weekend of release.

Bruce Willis' blockbuster A Good Day to Die Hard, which was number one last week (ends24Feb13), was pushed into second place after family favourite Wreck-It Ralph pulled in $5.5 million (£3.4 million) over the weekend (23-24Feb13).

The fifth installment in the Die Hard franchise earned $2.6 million (£1.6 million) after suffering a 64 per cent dip in its first-weekend takings.

Horror movie Mama, starring Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain, came third with takings of $2.4 million (£1.5 million), while Academy Award-winning movie musical Les Miserables held steady at four with a haul of $1.2 million (£765,367).

British romantic comedy I Give It A Year rounded out the top five, with $1 million (£630,000).
