Cruise Knocks Fiancee Holmes Down In Box Office Battle

TOM CRUISE's latest movie WAR OF THE WORLDS has knocked his fiancee KATIE HOLMES' film BATMAN BEGINS off the top of the UK box office.

The STEVEN SPIELBERG adaptation of the HG WELLS alien invasion tale went straight to number one over the weekend (01-03JUL05), taking $15.4 (GBP8.6 million), with the Caped Crusader falling to second place, with $2.3 (GBP1.3 million) in takings.

Last week's (24-26JUN05) number two MR AND MRS SMITH fell to three, with STAR WARS - EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH slipping to four.

Besides War Of The Worlds, the only new entry in the top ten was Indian gangster film SARKAR - a reworking of THE GODFATHER movies.
