'Dredd' sees off 'Lawless' to lead UK box office - top 10 in full

By
Dredd has topped the UK box office on its first weekend on release.

Karl Urban's action movie, based on the cult 2000AD comic book character, pulls in £1 million to become the first 18-rated film to emerge as UK box office champ since Saw 3D in 2010.

'Lawless' still


Dredd sees off competition from Tom Hardy's Lawless and the Keira Knightley-led Anna Karenina adaptation to secure first place.

Last week's number one movie Total Recall saw a sharp 73% decline in ticket sales as it drops to number four. Brave, Pixar's animated tale of a princess in the Scottish Highlands, is at number five in its sixth weekend on release.

Elsewhere, comedy movie The Watch experiences a huge 85% dip in box office takings to tumble down seven places from last week's number two slot.

1. (-) Dredd - £1,049,345
