Marvel's latest superhero movie Thor has topped the UK box office on its debut weekend on release.

The blockbuster, starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, outmuscles Fast & Furious 5 to take in £5.4 million and secure first place.

Kenneth Branagh's movie was aided by 3 days of previews and the extended Bank Holiday thanks to the royal wedding.

The only other new release to chart in the top ten, Insidious from Saw creators James Wan and Leigh Wannell, bows at number three with £1.4 million.

Rio and Arthur complete the top five, while fantasies Beastly and Red Riding Hood are the biggest fallers as they slip three spots apiece to occupy positions eight and ten.

The UK box office top ten in full:

1. (-) Thor - £5,449,300
2. (1) Fast & Furious 5 - £2,609,244
3. (-) Insidious - £1,441,292
