'The Sweeney' beats 'ParaNorman' at UK box office - top ten in full

The Sweeney has topped the UK box office on its first weekend on release.

Nick Love's remake of the '70s TV show, which stars Ray Winstone and Ben Drew as two violent detectives, holds off animated movie ParaNorman to secure the number one slot.

In 'ParaNorman', a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), who is able to speak with the dead.

Anna Karenina holds its place at number three, while Lawless slips two places to fourth spot. Last week's chart-topper Dredd drops four places to round out the top five.

Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones drama Hope Springs is the only other new release to make the top ten, debuting at number six with £728,689.
