'Gulliver's Travels' storms UK box office

By
Gulliver's Travels
Gulliver's Travels has topped the UK box office over the New Year weekend.

The Jack Black-led version of Jonathan Swift's satirical novel pulls in more than £7 million to debut in first place over the holiday period. The Gulliver's total is more than double that of its nearest rival, last week's number one Little Fockers.

Debuting at number three is Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway's romantic comedy Love & Other Drugs with £1.6 million. Close behind with £1.3 million is new release The Way Back, director Peter Weir's first film since 2003's Master And Commander.

The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader falls three places from last week and lands at number five.

Elsewhere, Tron: Legacy, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Megamind and The Tourist experience a surge in business - more than doubling their takings from last week's quiet Christmas weekend - but each still tumbles down the chart three places.

Animation Animals United completes the top ten.
