Animated kids' comedy Wreck-It Ralph has destroyed its rivals to reach the top of the U.K. box office chart on its opening weekend (08-10Feb13).

The cartoon adventure story, featuring the voices of John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman, racked up takings of $7.2 million (£4.5 million).

It was sad news for the cast of Les Miserables, as the movie musical's four-week run at the top of the British chart ended following weekend takings of just $2.56 million (£1.6 million).

New romantic comedy I Give It A Year's honeymoon period was over before it began, as ticket sales of $2.24 million (£1.4 million) on its opening weekend placed the movie third, and Django Unchained slipped two places to fourth, with takings of $1.7 million (£1.07 million).

Denzel Washington's plane-based drama Flight descended from third to fifth place, with $1.48 million (£925,049).
