Chronicle has topped the UK box office on its debut weekend on release.

The found footage superhero movie, which centres on three teens gifted with extraordinary powers, pulls in more than £2 million at UK cinemas to emerge as the number one movie ahead of Dwayne Johnson's Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

George Clooney's The Descendants drops a spot to number three, while War Horse's three-week reign at the chart summit comes to an end as it slips down to number four.
