Carell's Virgin Lures Fans

STEVE CARELL's maiden voyage as a leading man has proved to be fruitful, with his new film THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN opening at the top of the US box office with $20.6 million (GBP11.4 million).

The adult comedy - which Carrell, star of the US adaptation of hit UK series THE OFFICE, co-wrote - opened ahead of WES CRAVEN's plane thriller RED EYE, which debuted with $16.5 million (GBP9.1 million) in box office revenue.

The two new movies bumped the previous weekend's top film, MARK WAHLBERG's FOUR BROTHERS, to third place with $13 million (GBP7.2 million).

Hit comedy WEDDING CRASHERS and KATE HUDSON's thrilled THE SKELETON KEY round out the top five with earning of $8.3 million (GBP4.6 million) and $7.4 million (GBP4.1 million) respectively.
