"Ralph Breaks the Internet" carries a hefty $175 million production budget, so it will need to keep up momentum worldwide to turn a profit. "Ralph Breaks the Internet" sees John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman reprise their roles from "Wreck It Ralph" as the video game villain and his best friend navigate the internet. The original film picked up $49 million over its first three days of release.
