'The Dark Knight Rises' tops UK box office - top 10 in full

By
The Dark Knight Rises has debuted at the top of the UK box office on its first weekend on release.

Christopher Nolan's final Batman instalment pulls in £14.6 million to easily secure the number one spot ahead of Ice Age 4: Continental Drift and The Amazing Spider-Man.


The Dark Knight Rises's three-day total, from Friday through Sunday, is the highest of the year so far. It narrowly misses out on the biggest opening weekend of 2012 to The Avengers, whose £15.78 million total was aided by £2.55 million in previews.

The Batman trilogy closer's opening haul outpaces the £4.43 million earned by The Dark Knight in 2008 and the £4.43 million taken home by 2005's Batman Begins.

'Magic Mike' still
Elsewhere, the UK top ten sees Magic Mike and The Five-Year Engagement at numbers four and five, while Bollywood release Cocktail is at six.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World experiences the sharpest fall as it loses 83% in ticket sales on its second weekend in cinemas.
