300: Rise of an Empire seizes glory at UK box office - top 10 in full

By
300: Rise of an Empire has topped the UK box office on its debut weekend on release.

The action blockbuster, a sequel to 2007's Zack Snyder hit 300, earned £2.7 million to end The Lego Movie's three-week reign at the chart summit.


Rise of an Empire's opening haul represents a significant drop from its predecessor, which debuted to £9 million in April 2007. The film eventually went on to make $450 million (£270 million) at the worldwide box office.

Back in this week's chart, Wes Anderson's latest The Grand Budapest Hotel debuted at number three with £1.5 million, up significantly from the £250,000 earned by Moonrise Kingdom in 2012.
