Blockbusters Score As Fantastic Four Opens Big In Us

It has been another great week for America's summer blockbusters - the top three films have combined to bring in $97.5 million (GBP54.1 million) at the box office.

Comic book adaptation FANTASTIC FOUR has crashed into first place with a $56 million (GBP31.1 million) opening, while previous number ones WAR OF THE WORLDS and BATMAN BEGINS refuse to leave the top three.

TOM CRUISE's alien invasion film made an additional $31.3 million (GBP17.4 million) in its second week on release to fall to second, while the latest Batman movie has topped $170 million (GBP94.4 million) with a third week tally of $10.2 million (GBP5.66 million).

The only other new entry in the top 10 is JENNIFER CONNELLY's new horror film DARK WATER, which debuts with a disappointing $10.1 million (GBP5.61 million).

Meanwhile, STAR WARS: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH enjoys an eighth week in the top 10 with a $2.6 million (GBP1.4 million) take. The film has already made over $370 million (GBP205.5 million) in America.
